Are you planning on spending a lot of time at the beach? If so, then you need to have a good shelter from the sun and he Shelta 2m x 1.3m Cancer Council Pop-up Cabana with UPF50+ Medium is a top choice.

With a rating of UPF 50+, you can be sure that you and your family would have adequate protection from the harmful rays of the sun.

UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. It is a rating system that is used for measuring the level of protection that is provided by a fabric. In many ways, it is a lot like the SPF rating system that is used for sunscreens.

A garment with a rating of UPF 50+ like the one used in the Shelta 2m x 1.3m Cancer Council Pop-up Cabana would only allow 1/50th or block 98% of the UV radiation from the sun.

So when you see the UPF ratings of garments and shelters, always go for the higher  rating, just like when you would choose UPF 50+ over UPF 20+.

Why is protection from UV rays so important? Too much exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun can result in eye and immune system problems. But the biggers danger posed by UV ray exposure is the risk of developing skin problems including skin cancer.

Skin cancer is serious and Australians should be particularly concerned with it. Two out three Australians will develop skin cancer by the time they reach the age of 70.

This is why having a shelter like the 2m x 1.3m Cancer Council Pop-up Cabana from Shelta is so important. It allows you to have fun while staying protected at the same time. It's very easy to use with its pop-up action and it comesin Family or Medium sizes.

Product Reviews

- By Darren, Berkshire - 30 June 2011

Finally, a piece of kit that makes life on the beach so easy. Other people at the beach were amazed when we slide the Shelta out of the handy carry bag, let it unfold on its own and then pull up the cord. Press where instructed and the Shelta collapses as easy as it went up.

I am a hard customer to impress but I was stunned by the ease with which this thing went up and down. It comes with weight bags and 4 easy to insert pegs - which went in (and stayed in) by hand. No mallets, no poles to insert, no piecing things together - an utter joy.

We had a windy week and the Shelta bends and adjusts with the gusts - quickly folding back into shape on its own without collapsing on the family. It is also light to carry - no sore shoulders when climbing up and down the Cornish cliffs!

In the past we have tried and hopelessly failed with other beach tents - spending ages trying to assemble them and keeping them from blowing away, but this tent from Shelta is an absolute doddle - even for someone as inept as me. It literally pops up in a few seconds, and then can be collapsed again without fuss.

This tent is brilliant. Excellent design. You can set it up and take it down within minutes with no bother. It is also very compact and easy to transport. Well worth the money compared to all the trouble with cheaper tents, fiddling with poles snapping etc.

- By Jennifer Clarke - 25 May 2012

I was a little apprehensive at first, spending this much when cheaper options were available, especially as I would need to explain it to my husband! But my goodness, this is worth every single penny! The construction seems really robust with good quality material used. This is no flimsy one-summers-use purchase. I am delighted with this. It is genuinely easy to use, a good size for a family and very well made. Would recommend without hesitation.

This is really a really good sun shield. Pops up easily mad packs up into light weight carrying bag. Why wont this amazon system let me post until I have written what it things are enough words!

- By Mrs. Masami Rogers - 29 December 2013

Goes up and down easily, very spacious - fits 4 people. Can be weighted down with sand or stones in pockets. Coped with a strong breeze on the beach.
