6 Reviews of the 2 Seconds XL

By: Amythecellist  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2006   Rating: 

Brilliant tent. Super-easy to erect and peg down.

Made of very strong materials.

I have slept through two gales with minimal flapping noise.

I find folding it up not quite so easy as other reviewers, but there are good diagrams attached to the case.

Packed up it's 1m wide.

I've had at least 6 tents over the years and this is the best.

Actually I've no idea when it was made, I picked a random year.

I love this tent! We have 2 of them and the seconds base full. Extremely easy to put up, and with a little practice its easy to take down. Our coleman double comfort airbed fits nicely in ours, and in the other one I can easily fit 2 x single airbeds, There are storage pockets on the inside of both sides of the tent and a little hook that you could hang a torch from. The porch area was handy for shoes and a small clothes bag. The 2008 model has a door at the front and zips on both the outer and inner door.No clips that I have read on previous reviews. It withstood heavy rain and there was no condensation in the morning.

I have just bought and used the mark II version of this tent, the main difference being that the porch is now on the end of the tent not the side. I already own an original 2 second, but needed something that bit bigger for a few days away. The porch is very useful for dirty boots and the interior is enormous for one and roomy enough for two. Folding it is a bit more complicated than the original design, but is soon mastered.

It was subjected to blistering sun and torrential rain in the few days I used it and didn't complain once. At 69 for the mark II it's a bargain.

Bought this last year, but have only used it once. I already had a 3 Seconds, so knew what to expect.

Great tent though, quite spacious for 2 people. Only down side is storage while not in use for me, as it is a large disc shape, and I can't get it through the loft hatch door!

Great for the odd night away, or when stopping over on a longer journey.

This fabulous little tent could easily convert me to camping without the bells and whistles. It's easily comfortable enough for 2 people for a weekend, and I reckon I could be happy longer than that as long as the weather stays dry! Obviously it lacks any kind of living space so a rainy weekend would be a bit miserable.

It goes up in seconds and down again just as easily. Room enough in the porch for a coolbox, grassy shoes and a bag. It even has handy little hanging hooks in the bedroom, which is more than I can say for my family size tent!

I would agree with the previous poster about the fiddly little hook on the outer door, but for different reasons - trying to fumble that open in the dark with a 6 year old bursting for a wee was a tense moment!

This is a great one-night tent for one or two people. It can go from in the bag to up and pegged-out in just a couple of minutes. Packing away is easy and quick too once you have the knack of it. It easily fits a double air matress in the main section and has plenty of room in the entry for your muddy shoes and couple of small holdalls. It stands up well to the wind and doesn't leak even in heavy rain. The front door turns into a built in canopy which is great for making an area to sit in the shade. The 2XL is bigger when packed than most of the Quechua pop-up tents, a disc about a metre across, so it can be a little awkward to carry unless you use the built-in rucksack type straps.

My only improvement to this versatile little tent would be to change the clip on the front door to a zip so that the entrance area is less draughty, not that you notice the breeze once you are inside the bedroom pod.
