Cabela's Alaskan Guide Model Shelter -
To earn our Alaskan Guide name, this Canopy/Shelter has to be the best – period. It's the most durable covering of its kind and the only full-coverage, complete stake-out and guy-out shelter on the market. You can count on it to protect your outdoor events from weather and insects. It is constructed of 60-denier nylon with a special polyurethane coating and fully taped seams to repel moisture, making it tough enough for three-season use. The full-coverage fly also has taped seams and a waterproof, 1,200mm polyurethane coating. Convert the front fly into an awning with the supplied awning poles. Three zippered entrances afford easy access, and the fly and awning can be removed to create a comfortable mesh shelter. Support comes from sturdy chrome steel poles and a Sportiva® hub system that makes setup easy. Sod cloth around the bottom perimeter lets you place sandbags on it for additional security. This shelter comes with poles, stakes and a convenient duffel-style carry bag. Imported.

Needs Improvement

I purchased this gazebo in the spring of 2012 for an annual fishing trip with my two sons. I loved the concept of the rain fly since that was our major concern. It is nice to have a place to get in out of the wind and rain to cook and get ready for the night. I had read the reviews about the center hub breaking and assumed it would be after some use. The very first night of our 10 day fishing trip the center hud broke into several pieces during a gust of wind when we were preparing supper. Needless to say we were very dissapointed and I called Cabela's who appolagized and assured me they would take care of it, which they did, but this did not help us on our trip. There were many inexpensive screen houses around us that did withstand the whether, how can this be! I am currently thinking of purchasing another one since I cannot not find one I like as well. I will be sure to order at least 6 spare hubs this time, I can deal with a bent pole or tear, but it is useless without a hub.

Good Product

Just got back from a spring bear hunt in the Copper Center area of Alaska: handled heavy rain and snow just fine. 60 MPH winds for 10 hours was too much for the roof poles. Bent 2 and broke 2. Screen and canopy really are excellent but the poles don't rate the Alaskan Guide Series quality I've grown used to. If they bend again I'll make my own out of heavy conduit. Otherwise, this was a great addition to camp for cooking and storage. Not sure how many similar products would stand up to the type of wind we endured so I gave this 4 stars.

Not for the wind in NM!!!

I bought the gazebo June 2011. My family and freinds took it to the lake on fathers day. We got it up in the wind, we were able to make lunch. Then a gust came and broke 5 poles and tore the fly in two spots where the guy outs attach. I exchanged it for a new one, and in July took it to another lake in S.NM. We were with a large group that have fithwheel campers. We put it behind the campers, and when the wind came up and we put our SUV and 1ton trucks around the other sides and it did just fine. In Aug. we went camping to the same lake with just my family. We got in at night got the gazebo set up and within 2hrs. the wind broke 4 poles. We also own the Alsakan guide 8 man tent which has always been set up right next to the gazebo and we have never had a problem with it. I have purchased many products from cabelas and have always been very happy. But, I don't believe that this gazebo lives up to Alsakan guide quality. The poles need to be improved. I like the design of the gazebo it's great for shade, the fly is nice too. This gazebo is only for nice sunny days 1 season!!!

Great concept but needs new design

While on weeklong fishing trip, lakefront winds reached around 60 mph and with the gazebo fully guyed and staked out, the fly material the Velcro is sewn to that attaches the fly to the pole ripped causing the pole to snap immediately. I would create a second gen. Gazebo with roll down waterproof walls, an awning that has one center pole as rain collects on the awning too and it should be designed to run off. The rain fly should be over the roof seams only (side protection from the roll down walls). But the guy ropes need to be attached directly to the pole i.e via carabiner to strengthen the long upright poles in the wind. Maybe you could make the waterproof material out of XTC fabric for even greater strength. Yeah, I know I'd like it to be bomb proof to but it is no fun having hard earned vacation cut short by a blown down campsite. I still think you guys are the best, but keep making them better and I will always believe that.
