Are Pop Up Tents Good?

Pop up tents have gained popularity over the recent years as they offer plenty of advantages, especially for the wary traveler or last minute planner. Now, a pop up tent is not going to replace your more expensive tents designed for serious campers intending on pitching down for a while.

Pop up tents have a job of their own and when used correctly, prove to be worth every penny spent. Let’s get straight into it.

Benefits to Owning a Pop Up Tent

They are a breeze to set up

Once you have found your ideal spot, you simply need to remove the tent from its cover and undo a tie or two. From here, all you need do is sit back watch the magic happen. Some larger pop up tents, however, may require you to fiddle around ever so slightly, but nothing you would consider to be hard labour.

Pack up is easy as

It really is, in fact we even have an article that takes you step by step on how to easily fold down your pop up tent.

Super easy transporting

The materials used in all our pop up tents are lightweight and durable, given that they are mostly made with steel and polyester. Most you can simply put in your backpack if you’re out hiking for the day. Take for instance our 2 Seconds Pop Up Fresh & Black Camping Tent.


Affordable, easy - can't go wrong!

One with nature

Given the light materials used with pop up tents, you do not feel as though you are stuck in a 4 wall room for your entire trip, which is especially good for those rainy days where you just want to lay in bed (sleeping bag?) with a cuppa and a book.

Remember – When setting up your pop up tent, ensure you are doing so on clear ground. i.e. a ground devoid of sharp objects or large branches (ouch). Also, do remember to clean and store your pop up tent appropriately given the manufacturer’s instructions so that you can use it time and time again.

All in all, pop up tents are excellent alternatives to your larger and heavier duty long term setups. They are perfect for days out at the beach if you’re after some shade and great for a small camping trip where you just want a quick shelter on the go.
