What Users Say:

  1. "Well what can I say this tent is fantastic, we bought it to use with another Quechua tent we have just bought. Its great 'pop' and you have an extra large living space. We had rain and wind, probably not the strongest gales but enough to give it a good test! The difference with this tent and the smaller base tents is that it has a hoop that you fix to the inside top of the tent, this gives it much more stability and although the sides can bend in a bit in the wind the hoop stops it from completely caving in like I have heard some of the smaller ones do. Another good feature is how you have so many doors, so you can get more Quechua tents to use with it and can also open up doors to get a good view and good ventilation. I only have two small con's which are the fact that for good ventilation the mosquito mesh above the doors lets in quite a breeze in the wind, it would be nice to have an option to close them up and also the groundsheet is not fitted, but it is 'bucket' style so it works well anyway. I am still giving it 10 out of 10 as the ventilation is probably for a reason, we suffered no condensation and also it probably helps the wind to pass through the tent rather than knock it over."

  2. "I Love my Quechua Tents - Base XL and Base 4.1 Joined together. So easy to pitch and fold away and I'm getting better at it each time. I give them 9 out of 10 simply because although they are wonderful, they can let in a certain amount of drafts and bugs from the floor/skirting area and a breeze from the vents which are permanently open above. I now have a quiet fan heater that has kept it all warm enough, and when it has got very cold and/or drafty in the night I close the doors where the two tents join. In heavyish winds in September 2011 in Derbyshire the tent was flapped around a lot and was noisy, but I was amazed to find the next morning that my 'standard' tent pegs that came with the tents all stayed in place and all I had to show from the blast was a few slightly slackened Guy Ropes."

  3. "We got this model (Base Seconds XL) to accompany our Armadillo (as we call it) Quechua and add some much needed space for cooking and lazing about it. Being over 6foot tall I found this to be ideal and it packs away to a dustbin lid sized bag in under 4 minutes (with practice, get on youtube for videos). Like others have mentioned, not 100% in strong winds as gets a little mis-shapen, but bounces back well. Well worth investing in some decent pegs and extra guy lines, but hey, we should all have a basic camp/repair kit of - Pegs - Guy Lines - Mallet - Gaffer Tape etc. This tent is most suited to use as a day/cooking and entertaining unit and deffo worth the investment."

What the Manufacturer Says:

QUECHUA Base Seconds XL

  • 1 - Size and weight Hexagonal living area, 2m sides for a surface area of 10 m². Max headroom 2.05m. 14kg.
  • 2 - Room space This Seconds Base was designed as the (very big) living room for 2 Seconds tents, for fresh,
    rainy, or mosquito-filled evenings. It therefore does not have a bedroom but will be ideally pitched beside any other tent.
  • 3 - Living and storage space With its 10 m², 8 or even 10 people can comfortably sit at the table. The groundsheet is
    included. It is basin shaped, and prevents any rainwater runoff into the tent. Base tents can be twinned together, either
    with a Full Seconds Base or an XL Seconds Base, extending the shelter area from 5 to 10 m² or 15m² or more.
  • 4 - Entrance/exit It has 4 large doors, 3 of which are adjoining to allow for a panoramic view of the countryside, and a
    4th door at the back. These doors are easily stored in adjacent pocket, for increased ease of use. Large overhangs
    protect each door from the sun and rain - and allow you to keep them open.
  • 5 - Pitching/ folding Innovation: the groundsheet can be positioned and secured before the tent is unfolded. This facilitates
    the right positioning of the tent, and its accurate set up. Then, you can unfold and set it up in under 2 minutes! Folds down in
    less than 2 minutes when you have the knack (details and film available on This tent can easily be used
    without the groundsheet.
  • 6 - Waterproofing As with all Quechua tents, a lot of work is put in to ensuring they are watertight, through laboratory
    testing (an ENTIRE TENT is put through 200 litres/hr/sq m!) and field testing. (PU-coated polyester flysheet with all the
    seams sealed with thermo-bonded tape). Twinned 2 Base Seconds XL have been confirmed waterproof under the
    same conditions. 
  • 7 - Ventilation 1 ventilation flap above the 4 doors. 6 large mosquito-netted windows (can be closed). Everything is
    designed to maximise ventilation, and reduce natural condensation.
  • 8 - Poles Solid fibreglass; highly break resistant. 
  • 9 - Tent Pegs Galvanised steel, 6mm in diameter, for excellent twist-resistance.
  • 10 - Tent bag Disc that is 90cm in diameter and 10cm thick. More practical zipless flap and 2 straps for occasional carrying.
  • 11 - UV protection Our tent fabrics block over 98% of UVB and 80 to 95% of UVA rays... for those looking for daytime protection,
    remember that a lot of UV rays can enter through one open door.
