Base seconds 4.2
T4.2 also from Decathlon
I can't make up my mind about this tent. I nearly bought it on the spot when I first saw it, but OH would not have anything to do with fibreglass poles after our last experience in the bad weather. Also there was a review on it in this month's camping mag, one of the claims is its meant to buckle and fold in bad wind and is normal, I think we would find that a bit frightening if we were inside. That's what happened last August in Cornwell, except the tent wasn't meant to do that . I'll dig the review out and add anything of interest here.
That all said, I still like the look and design of the tent and I like the idea of the speed of the set-up. I do agree Andy, as a tent to set up for a Friday night and leave Sunday Morning, it takes some beating.
I have also found the Seconds Base tent to be clever and this would be cool as a quick chuck up Kitchen tent.
These tents are easy to put down, once you have the knack.
