The quickest, easiest fishing shelter you will ever set up, with all-weather protection.

The TFGear Force 8 Rapid Day Shelter makes it easy for 1 man, his bed and all of his tackle to be out of the wind and rain all day long or for 2 seated anglers to fish from dawn ‘til dusk with the same comfort and convenience.

Made from top quality, heavy-duty nylon, it can be erected and pegged ready in just a few minutes - much quicker than a brolly in many cases.

It stands taut, sturdy and wind-resistant thanks to its perfectly tensioned reinforced fibre glass ribs and multiple pegging points, and has guy cords for better stability.

Its useful back panel can be opened and secured for ventilation or pole-shipping, making it a versatile, light, spacious refuge you’ll be glad to own when the weather turns nasty.

It packs up small and compact and fits neatly into the supplied carry bag.

  • Plenty of room for 1 or 2 anglers plus gear
  • Far superior to a brolly
  • Superb all weather protection
  • Reinforced fibre glass frame - stays rock solid in high winds
  • Guy cords for even greater stability
  • Rear vent/pole-shipping aperture
  • Packs up small and compact
  • Comes with pegs and carry bag

design fault

been up for a week in the garden ….it is waterproof ,no problems there... it is very stable when it's pretty breezy...BUT !!! the advert says you can sit out of the wind all day...NO YOU CAN'T the material doesn't reach the ground and the rear is particularly short by a good few inches so you get the wind blowing through with nothing to stop it ...I just don't understand the thinking behind you don't sit out of the wind as the advert says so only 3 stars for the misleading advert

TFG Force 8 Rapid Shelter

Goes up in seconds after a couple of times to get used to the mechanism, kept me and my gear dry and out of the wind and also plenty of space for the dog. The opening at the back is a brilliant idea for pole fishing. Easy to take down and comes with a strap to keep it wrapped for putting in it's bag. Pegs are a bit cheap but inexpensive to replace with decent ones. Two of my fishing buddies were that impressed they are now looking at getting one.

This product looks good, so I thought it would do the job intended, in wind quite good, but rain , not so good, leaked from seam joints near ring pull at top , so took it back and exchanged for same item, low and behold same thing happened, So not happy with this product.

Simple and effective!

I was looking for a day shelter with Autumn arriving but one that was reasonably priced.I bought this one after reading a couple of reviews and tried it out last week on a rather cool breezy and showery day.It was very easy to erect with lots of space for my chair and kit.It kept the rain out fine and I did like the little canopy at the front with good viewing out to the lake.It must be popular as all the local Go Outdoors near me had sold out of these so ring first.

Best available for price

By far the easiest and quickest day shelter to put up and down; had the previous model which was a pain to put up but this is a massive improvement. Can be put up and pegged out in 25 seconds once you've had a couple of practices. One tip is to make sure the four ribs are all straight and not twisted before putting up as they may fold in on themselves. Keeps the rain off perfectly and more than adequate for my masses of gear; great height for viewing lake and new peaked front design is a huge improvement. I wasted my time looking at more expensive shelters/brolly systems. If you're not a tackle tart this is perfect for day sessions and even overnight on warmer nights.Managed to get a price match so got a great deal for something that will last a good number of years if it is put up correctly. Good clip on YouTube showing how easy it is to put up and it really is that easy. gave it 5 stars due to the quality, ease of use and excellent value. P. S need a little bit of strength to clip the top mechanism together but easier with practice and not being too scared to pull the arm down.

TF Gear rapid day shelter

Light weight, does go up quick with a little practice and stops most of the bad weather
Tent pegs supplied are to weak for job (I replaced with bivvy pegs) and the shelter does not contact the ground in some points with leaves gaps for the wind to get through.

All that said I do like this shelter

TFGear Force 8 day shelter

I have just purchased this item and initially I had difficulty erecting it. This is partially my fault as I have had an operation to my left shoulder so I could not open it out. I got round this by turning it upside down and pushing mechanism against the ground using my good arm, the mechanism immediately went into locking mode , I then turn right way up.This way it only took seconds to open out ready to peg out.
