My neighbor also has the that version. It seems well made and he sure can put it up quickly. I'm going back and forth between it and the smaller 4 sided clam as the larger clams are bigger than we want. The larger Clams I've looked at are a heavier duty with better fabrics so if they build the smaller similar it should theoretically withstand wear and tear better. But for occasional use does that really matter?

That Gazelle looks promising. A couple feet smaller diameter than my Clam, but 9" shorter when packed and about 10 lbs lighter. Does it seem durably constructed to you?

I purchased a clam through ebay auction, picked it up on one of my trips south. They never charge me duty and I avoid brokerage fees



Little bit smaller than the full size clam. 5 minute setup.
