    1. Dimensions and weight
      2.25m square living area, 5 sqm surface, max headroom 1.9 m. kg. Weight: 6.4 kg.
    2. Bedroom space
      This Base Seconds was designed as the living area for 2 Seconds tents, during cold, rainy, or mosquito-filled evenings. It therefore does not have a bedroom, but is compatible with 2 Seconds bedrooms. A bedroom is sold separately to fix inside the Base Seconds, converting it to a wide 2 to 4-man tent for sleeping.
    3. Living / storage space
      Thanks to its 5 sqm surface, 4 or 6 people can easily sit around a table. A compatible groundsheet is sold separately. Another advantage is that one Base Seconds can be twinned with another Base Seconds.
    4. Entry/exit
      2 big doors, which fold easily into a pocket for more ease and to keep the living space open in fine weather.
    5. Pitching/folding
      Pops up in 10 seconds, fully pitched in less than 2 minutes. Free-standing (can easily be moved even after it is pitched). It is advised to use the 10 pegs to ensure wind resistance. Folds down in less than 2 minutes with practise (details and film available on
    6. Waterproofing
      Like all Quechua tents, the waterproofing has been particularly well-developed, approved in lab tests (ENTIRE TENT tested with 200 litres of water per hour and sqm!) and on field tests. (PU-coated polyester roof with heat sealed watertight taped seams). 2 twinned Base Seconds were approved in terms of waterproofing in the same conditions.
    7. Ventilation
      1 air vent under each of the 3 "overhangs", 4 mosquito net windows (can be closed off) + 1 ceiling air vent. Designed for optimum ventilation and to reduce natural build-up of condensation.
    8. Wind resistance
      We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel with a rotary table to expose each side of the tent to the wind. A properly assembled tent with all the stays in position around the tent should remain habitable;e under wind speeds measuring 50 km/h at ground level.
    9. Poles
      Solid fibreglass for excellent break resistance.
    10. Tent pegs
      5 mm galvanised steel pegs for good twisting resistance.
    11. Cover
      85 cm diameter and 10 cm thick disc. Non-zip flap which is more practical, and 2 straps for occasional carrying.
    12. UV protection (protection against Ultraviolet rays)
      The fabric flysheet filters UV rays with a SPF of 30. Please note: a significant amount of UV rays can enter through a single open door: protect your skin.
