Easy to put up and because of the colour coded clips - fairly easy to fold up - will get even easier with practice.
great. the only thing I would add would be some sort of eyelet or fixing at the middle red bit on the front ground ground rail. In high winds wind gets under the front and lifts it up off the ground. A simple fixing here would stop this. I will get a tarp clip to secure it here.
Got the tent and used it last weekend. The tent went up in seconds and was comfortable and waterproof. There was very heavy rain overnight and the tent was dry and comfortable. I had a bit of a struggle in getting it back down and into it's bag, but will have another look on UTube before my next outing. I'm happy with my purchase.
Doddle to put up. Watched the video a couple of times and practised packing it down befor we went away , and armed with this knowledge it is also a doddle to pack down.
Lovely airy space, with places to put things.
We used it for a busy weekend in beautiful weather, so not sure yet how it will fare in wet or windy conditions.
The only problem so far is storing it - it's not the most convenient size or shape to store and keep away from damp and little nibblers. Good idea to consider this before buying.
I bought this for me to sleep in when I need to be able to put up and take down on my own. Very easy to pitch, just pop it up. Putting back in the bag requires a little more practice, but fine when you have worked it out. I used this in one or the worst thunder storms I have experienced camping. The torrential downpour went on for over an hour. I was warm and dry throughout. I wouldn't use for a longer stay as not much headroom, but this was obvious from the dimensions given.
I bought this tent from Decathlon in Angouleme 2 years ago after having had a quecha pop up tent for nearly 10 years which was becoming tatty after so many years use. (This old tent is still used regularly, water tight and survived some terrible weather). The new 'air' version is wider and seems a little longer too which is very welcome however I did find it 'lower' than it's predecessor making it difficult to get dressed etc. Have had two trips in it this year alone and it survived 'Festival Number 6' with no problem at all (there were so many broken and blown away tents all in the skips & written off cars due to the horrendous weather all weekend). I once watched a test on TV which showed fire crews firing water at pressure at various tents & the little quecha pop up tent did the best so I think the 'pop up' poles must be far more flexible and hardy being all fixed together that more 'traditional' tents.
Easy to put up and put down after a few practices
Head height a little low towards the back
As always with tents, halve the number of berths it says and you'll be fine. This would be very cosy as a 2-man but is perfect as a one-man. Loads of space for a decent camp bed and kit if you're on your own.
Small porch area is perfect for keeping wet gear or using a gas stove for that early morning coffee.
Obviously easy to pitch as it's pop-up but practice putting it down after watching You Tube. Makes it much easier in real life!
Holds up well in the rain but be careful of opening external front door. Bash the rain off first otherwise it comes inside the porch. Side air vents are very useful, the back one not so but is a nice touch.
Perfect weekend or festival tent but the packed away disc shape would not be good for hiking.
Pitched and weatherproof in seconds
Front door could be problematic if wet
Bought this for Glastonbury, was incredibly disappointed.
I bought it having seen it on display in Surrey Quays Decathlon, where is was displayed relatively high up at an angle and was obviously not secured to the floor. What this did not allow you to see was that when you actually secure the tent, the back is pulled down to such a low flat height, you feel that you exist in a pancake. To make things worse, the inside then sags and hangs, which you bang into. In order to even wriggle into your jeans, you have to go up the end of the tent near the entrance to get some head space.
I am 5'1 and this should not have been a problem for me, but it was an awful awful awful experience. Despite only buying this in June, I am now going camping again.... and will have to go tent shopping again. This would be totally unpleasant to use a second time.
The point at which people point at your tent when they walk past and laugh at the shape saying "I'd hate to be in there" is the point at which you know you've made a misinformed choice.
An utter waste of a hard-earned £70.
Thanks for your feedback on the 2 seconds XL air camping tent, I am sorry to hear about the inconvenience caused. Please drop back into the Surrey Quays store with the tent where a member of the team will be able to find a suitable solution for you.

Just back from camping in Gorge du Tarn and Provence. Tent is waterproof and so easy to erect and take down with a little practice, but no problems there.
Good design, easy to erect
Due to totally inadequate number of supplied guys ropes the outer tent fabric contacts the inner tent during windy weather and if it rains dampness penetrates the inner sleeping area. Attachment loops for at least 5 more guy ropes are available which when fitted with guy ropes greatly improve the tent stability. Why are these extra guys not supplied with the tent? I had to purchase para-cord and pegs from the camp site shop and set up the extra guys in a severe rain storm!
Useful porch and large sleeping space.
Extra guys needed in windy weather.
