River Shelter.

I’m looking for the unicorn shelter for my days on the river. It needs to hold up to winds and not snap in half or get blown away at High gusts., it needs to not weigh too much, put up fast in times of big storms coming in, need to be able to cook in it, have river dance parties in it, maybe even have an option to lock out mosquitoes and wasps?? Mostly I need a shelter that doesn’t get destroyed in high winds and is not a bitch to put up in a hurry... any recommendations???

Wow, that is asking a lot. Seems like conflicting requirements.

I have a friend who is geology field camp professor who has a "structure" he frequently employs for students and on some river trips. I've never been about when he's used it but I'll ask him concerning your needs for a insta-beach-party-hut/survival lodge.

I also look forward to feedback from the MB crew.

Sounds like two different shelters to me...

Hmm. Those are high requirements and really nothing comes to mind that will fulfill all of them. That being said, my family really enjoys the North Face Kaiju 6. Itís enormous, can cook in the garage, sets up easy, partly freestanding, and is bomber in the wind. It probably weighs 25lbs and packs up in a large dry bag.

Dance parties for days.

Yep, but they are discontinued it seems.. Out of stock at least everywhere I looked, but I didn't do an exhaustive search either.

I really like that North Face with the garage, it gives you options for cooking and dance parties with a little mast bumping to make things fun and leave's your sleeping area clean. I like the bigger tents, 25 lb. is not bad at all.

Springbar Leisure Port

Doesn't really meet the "lightweight" requirement at 57#, but that's why we bought rafts, right?
It is absolutely bombproof in the wind with plenty of head room.
