Who has never dreamt of a tent that could erect itself without any help? – Just throw 2SECONDS into the air and it will open up on its own before even reaching the ground. It is the spring hoops that enable this. The idea was to pre-assemble the different elements (room, double roof, hoops) to simplify the hiker’s life as much as possible. This is a real tent, with the following features:
• Coated double roof with waterproof seams for excellent water resistance
• Anti-condensation “breathing” room
• Extra-strong polyester fabric
• Ideal space for 2 people (1.45 m by 2.45 m)
• 2 seconds to open it up
• 15 seconds to fold it back
2SECONDS makes hiking more accessible, and is fast becoming one of the more popular “small dome” tents.
