How to Fold a Quechua 2 Seconds Tent




I was gifted a Quechua 2 Seconds tent from friends who were in a hurry to leave their campsite and didn't have room in their luggage to fly back to Europe with it. This is an ingenious little tent. It's a small, two-person tent that has flexible tent poles integrated into the tent so that you can unpack and set up your shelter in two seconds. Once you take it out of its carrying bag it's a like a spring-loaded jack-in-the-box that snaps into shape. All you need to do is stake down the corners and your done! Until it's time to fold it back and take it home.

Now, the fine folks at Quechua were kind enough to include drawings that are sewn right into the bag. Even a URL for a video on their site just in case you still can't get it. I still couldn't get it.

This is my struggle and eventual triumph over the little tent that could.

    LOL Me Likey! I wanna play in your maker space! You look like you have some great projects in the back ground :-) And I want to make a pop up tent! Haven't been able to find a home made one. Looks like a good project!
