The next evolution of the Western Shelter has arrived with The Guardian 20. This shelter builds upon the proven Western Shelter octagonal frame with some serious design upgrades. The result: a shelter that gets you out of the weather in less than two and half minutes, but is also robust enough to offer protection for decades of use and countless deployment cycles.

Features and benefits

Rapid deployment

The Guardian Shelter Series was designed for speed, which is a critical factor when facing adverse weather conditions, or in situations where multiple shelters are needed. With its innovative folding cross bar design, and single piece cover set this shelter will have you under cover in just a few minutes.

Ease of logistics

The Guardian Shelter Series simplifies logistics by limiting the number of separate parts involved in the shelter's construction. This reduces the risk of losing parts in the field,  and makes shipping significantly easier.

No tools required

Similar to the GateKeeper Shelter, the Guardian requires no tools, ladders, or equipment to deploy. This vastly simplifies the setup process, and ensures that you never find yourself in the unfortunate, if not dangerous, situation of not being able to deploy your shelter because of missing tools.

Designed as a system

Western Shelters function well as stand alone products, but they deliver the most value when paired with our many support systems. These shelters are designed with climate control, electrical wiring, lighting, and air distribution in mind. Be sure to ask your sales representative about our complete line of accessories and support systems.
