Easy to put away after the first few tries,
This review is from: 2 SECONDS III GREEN (Sports)
I have the 3 second air version of this tent. This is a great tent that fits a double inflatable mattress in it with space for a rucksack, It has a double door (acts as a fly screen).
This tent is a 3 man tent but I would suggest that it is more like a 2 man tent with space for rucksacks. As a 1 man tent it was great.
It has a double skin.
It has pockets on both sides of the bedroom and a hook for your lantern.
I have used it in heavy rain and moderate winds and it held up well with no leaks and absolutely no condensation.
The colour of my one was biscuit and wasn't that good at keeping the light out (but most tents are like that anyway) When packed away it looked like a huge digestive biscuit and when you wear it on your back you look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. The diameter of the folded tent is 90cm which is a little big for a small car.
My tent (being the air version)also had side openings with a fly screen to keep it cool which could be adjusted from the inside, unfortunately they could not seal up completely and so even though it was cool during the day, at night time it also got cold and it did not keep in the heat very well. This should not put you off if you are only going to use it in the summer as I didn't exactly suffer with it.
The only real downside to this tent is the lack of any porch area for keeping muddy boots etc. I have just replaced this tent with a Lichfield Yana as it has a large porch area and folds up into a smaller disk.
I feel reluctant to stop using the quechua tent as it has great build quality. It served me very well for the past few years festival use and would do so for many more if I didn't need seperate storage space for trolleys etc
