8 Reviews of the 2 Seconds I

By: Rocker  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2012   Rating: 

I had this tent for a while and my daughter used it several times at festivals, good and easy to pop up but recommend to have uploaded guide how to put it back real nightmare, excellent in rain. 3 people one is just enough for 2 with not much space to spare. Shame it has no space in front for storing luggage or something else

Just bought one second hand on ebay. Gets great reviews on guardian website. Very pleased but check used ones include guy ropes and pegs. Even though there are cheaper pop up tents out there they are all single skinned and not recommended in rain or for people who like breathing at night. There is a video on the web which shows you how to collapse it back again.

This is a cracking little tent, outside dimensions are larger than I thought, about 4 feet x 7 feet plenty of room for one, I can just sit up in it, it is easy to set up and put down once you get the knack,the quality of the tent is very good and it is totally waterproof,if your after a one berth tent this Quechua 2 second 1 is ideal a real bargain :-)

Excellent, easy to pitch one man tent with space to sit up and for your bags. Folds down smaller than your normal pop ups, Pitches in less than a minute. (the 2 seconds refers to the time taken to Pop it up!) and its right, once you have got it out of the bag it takes just 2 seconds to un fold into shape and another 10 seconds to put just 4 pegs in!

The original and still the best.

Roomy for one, easy to pop up and easy to pack, it takes longer to put in the bag than it does to fold.

Mines has kept me dry and warm in force 9 winds, tied to a friends caravan.

A homemade add-on porch is useful but normally too much hassle for a single night.

I much prefer this to the newer tents with the smaller frame.

Easy peasy to use for a first time camper! Enough space for myself and husband but are looking to upgrade to a larger one as not enough space to store bags in as well as us! Agree with the sloping door allowing water in but otherwise a great little tent which is an ideal starting point to find out if you actually enjoy camping or not.

As above, my first pop-up tent, but only used once when I was getting a lift in a car as I usually backpack and at around 80cm diameter it is too big to strap to a rucksack.

I fully concur with the comments about the sloping door and that is why I only gave it 8/10. However, once zipped inside, it is completely waterproof and stood up to the worse that the current weather could throw at it.

It's just a shame that the can't design that door a little better. Next time, I will take my tarp to shelter the entrance.

This was my first pop up tent and has been used frequently until last week when I bought the mark II XL version. It looks like this will now be a play tent for my daughter.

It's easy to pitch, my record being 2 minutes from in the bag to fully pitched. The interior is adequate for one but would be a tight squeeze for two. The base of the tent is oval and isn't as big as it appears on the diagram unless the two figures are about 4 foot tall.

My biggest criticism is that due to the sloping door, if the door is unzipped during rain your pillow and sleeping bag are soaked within seconds. It is almost impossible to prevent the rain gathered on the door running inside too as it is unzipped.

If you are looking for a cheap small pop up tent this is ideal. Otherwise I would recommend something a little larger.
