23 Reviews of the Seconds + III         Showing 01 to 10          Page:   1   2   3

Not only did I get one of these at a discount; not only is it brightly coloured for a bit of individuality; this tent is so easy to put up, and not too bad to put down again. It's roomy, even with 3 inside. We use a Base Seconds pop-up to sit this tent underneath, to give us that bit of extra cover in rain, but the one time I took it on its own (to a Scout camp), I was thrilled to open mine out in about . Well, 2 seconds . And be inside, nice and warm, while all the Scouts messed with poles and groundsheets and guy wires. They were soaked, and I was whistling in my tent, reading from my Kindle. It's not a tent to backpack with, but car-camping, it's ace.

Brilliant tent. Does what it says on the tin. The extra hoop (hence the '+' in the name) makes all the difference, and means that not only is there a bit more porch space, but the outer door can be opened without rain falling on the inner door. Pops up and packs very easily, and in strong winds seemed very stable, even without the guys (which for most purposes do not need attaching). They got a pretty decent workout on the Troytown Farm campsite on the island of St Agnes with the Atlantic winds and very heavy driving rain, and came out with flying colours. Comfortable for 2, luxurious for 1, tight for 3.

They pack down into a light and easily carried package, but not so easy as to be carried with a rucksack (I suppose you could, but you would look a bit of a plonker). With the 20 discount on the Decathlon store they cost 60. A lot of tent for the money. A no brainer.

I went camping in the Lakes, the weather was terrible. It rained and rained but my tent remained dry (even stuff in the porch). It was dry and comfortable, wind was no problem , no breeze rushing through. Only problem is there isn't enough head room in my opinion but I am buying a smaller air bed to accommodate this wonderful tent.

We went on our first camping trip using the Seconds + III and it was a great experience. Stress free pitching and surprisingly easy to fold back into the bag if you follow the instructions (we downloaded a video on our IPod beforehand!). There is room at the front to leave bags and other bulgy items out of the rain. There is enough room inside for two people although it would be tight for three. It was rainy and windy while we were out and we found the tent very comfortable and quite sturdy for a pop-up, although we will have to be more careful with the guying next time as it tended to go a bit slack overnight but that was probably our fault, being new to camping. All in all, a great little tent to have and we're thinking of getting another (bigger) Quechua for short trips.

I love the pop up tent. It's so easy to use and great for packing away quickly when it starts to rain (especially if you can watch other tent users panic as they get soaked messing about with poles etc).

But the downside is there's not loads of room for storage. Best for short breaks rather than long weeks away.

Used this tent last night in the pouring rain. Rained for hours and inside stayed dry. The wind picked up and didn't have any draughts to complain of. Great tent and very pleased with performance. If anything I just wish it had a bit more height - just an inch or two would make a difference. Should add that storage space at the front even stayed dry in the weather conditions

Well after camping for many years and after trying a dozen tents over the years I almost gave up. I have a family of 6 so went for a large tent, large amount of camping gear,kitchen ,cookers with grills etc, chairs for 6, lighting etc etc. It became to stressful loading the car setting up putting away. Then I went down the opposite route. I saw the Quercha 3xl seconds pop up tent and bought 2 from decathlon. A great quality tent.

We have 3 people in each , and yes they do set up in seconds it takes longer to find the beer. We can fit a large double air bed and a single with room to spare. The inner tent is already part of it and pops up also. Has large storage pockets on each side , a double door , fly screen and outer. Also has a porch to put your boots/gear. I even found it easy to fold and get in the bag, just a couple of twists. I am now back into camping. No stress, less equipment and more time to relax. Just had a week in Aberdaron, with 1 very windy/wet day and the tent had no leaks and was very sturdy. Camping as it should be with no kitchen sink etc. Recommended

Great air flow, didn't feel all stuffy and terrifying in the morning, very easy to put up and down, no leaks: just right for 2.

They provide the exact number of pegs, no spares so make sure to collect them all. Good instructions sewn into the bag too.

I don't like to quote other adverts but. .'Does what is says on the tent!'

I love this tent. It is very well made and has always been weather proof - even in heavy Scottish rain. The reviewer below who had problems in wind must have been in one hell of a storm!

For two people the tent has room for you and your stuff. It has thoughtful features such as a hook for a lamp and internal pockets, as well as good ventilation.

Putting it up is simple of course, but its also easier to put away than the two man version. If you are shy practice at home first time. Otherwise do it on the camp site to entertain other campers.

One negative: when packed away its a huge disc about 1 metre diameter - not practical to carry on a walk!

I have owned a few Quechua tents, but the last two years I have been using the Seconds +3. This is a great tent for weeks away or short breaks. The tent its self is well made and the design is good. The only reason I have scored it 8 / 10 and not full marks is, one day in Scotland I was hit by some very bad weather for about an hour. The weather hit the tent straight from the front, causing the tent to keep bowing down by about a foot. Although the tent goes straight back in to its correct position as soon as the BIG gust on wind passes, its a bit werid lay in the tent watch the roof going up and down. I did think of a very easy way for Quechua to improve this. I still use the same tent but now I take a Quechua tarp with me and set it up from the floor giving me a dry sheltered space to sit outside and give the tent a bit of shelter if I ever get caught in such high winds again. Out of all the small pop up tents Quechua do I would say this one is the best.
