2 Reviews of the 2 Seconds Light

By: Darrenforster99  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2008   Rating: 

I have had one of these since working at the IoW Festival back in 2008.

I regularly work at festivals and always take this tent with me. It's so convenient to have it as an emergency tent. I do also have a trailer tent, but sometimes if the event is only on for a couple of days or a trailer tent isn't practical to take there (like with the IoW) then the Quecha 2 seconds can be really handy. Just unclip it and throw it into the air and it's ready.

Very good and far cheaper than the tents that the festival firm I work for sell. So much more convenient and can't understand why the firm I work for don't sell these to their staff.

These tents are also really waterproof. They have both an inner and outer which is vital for keeping dry in the rain, and considering their price they do really well in all weathers.

I have used this tent in a number of weather conditions - went to Cardiff to see the paralympic flame and it absolutely chucked it down all night and yet the tent was fine, also have used it at temperatures down to -5 deg C and it's fine and warm in there.

It is a 2-man tent, has plenty of room for 1 man and kit but 2 man would be a bit of a push unless you left kit in a car.

Overall a very useful and very good tent, very quick to put up and very good for when staying somewhere over night. If you don't mind camping you can save yourself a fortune on hotel room bills with this tent without the inconvenience of having to assemble a whole tent for just when you want to stop over somewhere.

Only one slight issue with this tent is folding the tent up at the end. The first few times folding up it can be quite tricky to get back into the original shape, at times you will think you are going to crack the poles bending them into the figure of 8 shape but this isn't the case. The best way to do it is to make it into a big loop and then ensure the yellow strap is on the bottom of the floor. Push down so it twists into a figure of 8 with the yellow strap at the cross over point of the 8 and then you should be able to bend the poles over. The more times you do this the more pliable the poles get and the easier it becomes, best to try putting it down at home first before going camping.

I have used this tent at many events and it is now really easy to put up and take down.

Not as simple as the original 2 second, it doesn't seem to hold it's shape as well.

Other than that, plenty of room for one but the folding sequence is a bit tricky compare to the original 2 second.

Manufacturer's Description

Instant pop up tent. Up in seconds, down in 15 seconds.

Designed for camping for 2 hikers looking for an instant pitch tent and reduced dimensions for transport.

Flat, 65cm diameter disc when packed

Sleeping compartment is 2.10m x 1.45m. Can accommodate a 140cm mattress. Space between the sleeping area and the flysheet is protected, ideal storage for shoes

Access: High door. Only one zip.

Ventilation: 1 roof ventilation flap + 2 low side flaps.

Waterproofing: Polyurethane-coated polyester fly sheet. Heat sealed watertight seams. 120g/m2 polyethylene groundsheet. Like all Quechua tents, the waterproofing has been particularly well-developed, approved in lab tests (tent shower up to 450 litres/h/m2!) and on field tests

As well as being able to carry it on your back directly, you can use the clip buckles to fix it to a backpack, and with the 65cm diameter, it fits much more neatly into your car.
