I bought this tent to use as an awning with my small campervan.It is so easy to put up and pack away even for a single female of 5'5.

My only dislike was that when I was sitting on a chair I could not see out through the netted areas. Needed to close everything up as the dreaded midges were very hungry.

( I wish I could pronounce the name of it !) - I bought one last year, have put it up for my grandson to use (!) and it looks great, but I can't as yet, put the bugger all the way down ! It's flat, but not completely folded away like it should, like the lady said - must take practise. I did have a dislocated shoulder and broken arm last july, so maybe that's it ! I will try again soon

Definitely not just a living area

I bought this tent specifically for taking to music festivals, as I wanted both the speed of the pop-up incase it was raining when I was pitching and I also wanted the height and space that this tent offers.

I also bought the additional sleep tent liner. This has double storage pockets in all 4 corners and is ridiculously easy to attach to the outer tent.

Im a 5ft 6in female and this tent is a piece of cake to pitch and after a little bit of practice, really easy to fold down too.

I found that there was no need to peg-out all the hooded sections where space was restricted and it was perfectly dry after a night of torrential rain and wind.

We have also taken this down to the beach and have used it in the garden as a gazebo. We have even used it as an awning onto the side of my friends VW van!

The beauty of this tent is the speed it springs up, time will tell how robust the design is.

Manufacturer's Description

Designed for 4 backpacking hikers who need a quick set-up living area offering shelter from the weather.

Don't confuse with the Seconds Base Full, which can have '2 Seconds' tents attached to it

This is just a living area.

A bedroom is sold separately to fix inside the Seconds Base, converting it to a 2 to 4-man tent for sleeping.

... there may be more info on their website
