I can't be bothered with tent snobs who think that their setup is the only setup that's worth having. We all have different needs, tastes, circumstances etc., but we all share a love of being in the fresh air enjoying what nature has to offer. Anyone that can't see that is, frankly, a bit dim.



This! I totally agree.

After having a faulty pop up tent nearly take an eye out and left me with two nasty bruises on my cheek. I wouldn't touch them with a barge poll.

Can't stand them. Yes having a tent up in seconds is wonderful is great but never seen anyone get them back down fast. Not a fan of carrying a big ass disk instead of a neat tent bag.

But to each their own, if it works for them great, but not for me.

Hiya all, I just picked up one of these

Cinch 4 Man Pop Up

I think it is really good and very easy to put away, although I have had experience on other pop ups.

hi everyone. as an ex owner of a pop up. i found it hard at first to get in back in the bag. all you have to do is have a good look at the video to see how is it done. and hey presto. seconds later. the job is done.  it is having to carry a large circle that lots of people dont like. but a nice strap to fit over the shoulder of someone who is not carrying anything. and its great. best tent ever for speed .i do admit that a large pop up for about 4 to 5 people will be more difficult to get back in. but..practice. thats all ya got to do. not gonna hurt you to practice. and for a sudden storm. what best. yes the pop up. storm over. back in the bag and away ya go.

Folding the beggars up - it's that figure-eight fold, and figure-eight again that gets me when I'm out of practice. We've taken it as the stopover tent; sat down woth a drink after 20 mins, and most of that was getting the beds sorted.

Last year we met a couple who were using their Icarus as a stopover tent, which got us thinking. But then its 26 pegs rather than 4/8 for the Quechua 3". Still pondering it now.
