10 Reviews of the 2 Seconds II

By: JustUs2  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2015   Rating: 

Excellent small tent. As appears to now be common practice, the accomodation is overstated with the 2 man tent being ideal for one. There is space under the flysheet for a couple of pairs of shoes but that is about all, so any other gear has to come inside. Pitching and striking is incrediby quick. There is good separation between the inner and flysheet ensuring that the expected condensation can quickly evaporate. Ventilation of the inner is good. There is a convenient lantern loop and two useful high level pockets for small personal items. I would think that the circular shape when packed isn't particularly suited to hikers/packpackers, but as short term or emergency accomodation for 1 (or 2 if you have no other gear except perhaps a small bag) then this tent is ideal. Quality of the product appears to be very good and at the current price it looks real value for money.

Perfect little pop up for 1 adult, 2 (very) close adults or two kids. I have used this tent while motorbike touring and it is perfect for superfast set up especially on rainy days when you need to get shelter quickly. The tent itself can resist some pretty horendous weather and to date it has never leaked or suffered from condensation the inner tent has a pocket for storing phones keys etc and loops for hanging torches etc I have not to date had to use the guy ropes I just pin it down with 4 to 6 tent pegs then when ready to leave packing up is a breeze. You will definitely need to practice folding the tent at home before you set of on a trip as it takes a few attempts before getting it. But once you do get it down its easy, 3 simple moves and its folded and ready to pop it back in the bag. Terrific value at Circa 30

Excellent just as it says erects in seconds and stays put with only 4 pegs. Most robust and longest lasting of all the pop up tents I have owned.

Price was good and stock in Decathlon stores is usually good. Same comments go for the one man version as well. By far one of my favourite items off camping equipment. Ideal for one night stops. Have even slept in it on tarmac with no pegs at all!

A good little quick tent but rather heavy for backpacking, I found it strong enough in heavy winds & certainly kept us dry but due to its style everything has to go inside with you, I wouldn't by one again but would happily recommend for kids, a fishing trip or festival.

It can be very tricky folding it back down into its bag but after a few attempts you start to get the hang of it.

Love this little tent! To be fair, we have only used it a few times. My eldest three boys practically lived in it in the garden one summer, at the time they were 15, 13 and 7. They all fit comfortably in and had great fun. Then the older two boys used it when they went away without me (sob!) to a sports camp. They managed very well by themselves and were able to put it up and put it down by themselves. Because of the shape they did look a bit like Ninja Turtles when walking with it on their backs though! Cannot fault this tent.

This pop-up tent is a brilliant for travellers like my husband and I, who travel with limited time, and always sleep in different place each night.It takes less than 5minuts to pitch, and another 5mins to prepare the bedding. As long as you use pegs, the damp is not a big problem. We did not use pegs in the first a few times in May in central Turkey, there was damp inside the tent, but not too bad.

We even used it as a changing room on beach! This is a great tent.

Now we have a 4.2 pop up tent for my family, but this one is still ideal for couples. We love this tent very much.

I love this tent. Use it all the time. I prefer pop up tents as they are easier and quicker to get up when hiking and camping in bad weathers. The only problem I have with them is as I do do a lot of walking the size of it put away is very big and difficult to wear easily.People say they are hard to get down but once you get the hang of it is quick and simple. Inside is just right for the one person but with camping equipment and big hiking bags its a bit of a squeeze. Is perfect for scout camps and hiking which is what I do but just the little problem with size I have to sort out. It is very good in wind and heavy rain and is very warm of a night. Very glad I brought it and will be using it a load more in the coming years it lasts for me.

We use one in the awning for my daughter, and I us it for Guide camp. Plenty of room for 1, bit of a squeeze for 2, but keeps you dry and warm.

The fact that it has an inner tent means no condensation dripping on you!

There are several storage pockets inside, too, and room for your bag if only one uses it.

Easy to pitch, but a challenge to strike!

Same comments apply to the quechua 2 seconds 1, except space is very limited, with no room for bags.

We use both tents in the awning of a 13' foot caravan, so space in there is limited. If you own a bigger van and awning, tho, this combination works well if the kids have friends on holiday with them!

Perfect for chucking up in a hurry if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep. I used this two-man tent with my two sons, aged 2 and 4. We all fitted in nicely although it was cramped, especially as they fidget a lot!

I kept all our kit in the car.

The tent performed very well, although I did feel a bit damp in the deep of an early April night as there was slight condensation.

Once you've got the hang of how to fold them down, the pop-up tent is a brilliant idea. This two berth is plenty big enough for one plus gear. (I'm not a minimalist camper!) and the Quechua is excellent quality with an inner tent and fly door, which makes it more cosy than the cheaper versions. It's even got a hook for your lamp. I've just come back from trying it out for two nights and it rained pretty much all the time. The tent stood up well to the elements with just the four main pegs and front and rear guys.

There are two downsides. The first is that as the tent is a triangle shape, when it rains you have to zip up the door, which means no cooking, unless you do it completely outside.

The second is that to dry it out, it needs to be popped up, rather than slung over the washing line. No great hardship.

Overall, an excellent tent and camping experience which I'm sure will last me several years.
