Quechua, 2 Second Shelter
Filtered by reviews Loading reviews…

We bought this to use on a recent holiday to Western Australia. We were hopeful - it's easy to pop up but as soon as the wind springs up on the beach the shelter starts to blow away. Also it's too small to comfortably fit two adults in side and it didn't come with any pegs (we got ours from another tent we had). Very hard to pack down (required two people to pack down). Will be returning this to store and requesting a full refund. Only plus was it is very lightweight and fitted in our suitcase.

Not fit for its primary purpose

Brought to bring on holiday this BH- used it twice in typical uk type wind. Flattens like a pancake loads of other versions on the beach we’re fine but none of the Decathlon versions we saw. We used rocks but basically the rods are not strong enough to hold the roof up in medium winds. Wind shelter it is not. Can’t return it now either as it’s covered in scuffs where the rocks have been trying to hold it to the ground. Disappointed I usually love decathlon stuff. I did take photos but there’s no way to upload them here showing ours flat to floor whilst others in background are ok.

Good product, a bit small

Does the job. Easy to put up and down. Enough room for two people and beach bag, cool box etc. Kept us shaded and cooler. Worth every penny.


Bought this sun shelter as my daughter has recently started lifeguards competitions which means long days at the beach. The shelter seems to attract the sun and on the 2 occasions we have tried to use it we have been unable to sit inside it because it is too hot. If you want a sweat box, buy this. If you want shelter from the sun you can actually use, buy a beach umbrella. The shelter is a waste of money.

Hi Tamara, 

I am sorry for the situation, but the main purpose of this shelter is to protect you from wind and rain. If you are looking for UV protection, I would recommend the 2 seconds XL fresh,a innovative canvas which reduces the heat felt in the direct sunlight.

Easy, quick, straightforward. Used it every day on different types of beach on holiday.

Used this on a wild and windy beach in Lanzarote. Just put heavy rocks inside when very windy, and no problem with wind. Don't know how I have lived without it. Goes up in seconds, folds up really small and easy to pack in your suitcase. Watched others struggling with umbrellas....

Top Quality item & Total Value 4 Money

Bought for Hol 2 Spain and for the Beach in days out n about. Only weighs just over a 1Kg and fitted in my Large suitcase. Pops up as it says in x2 Secs and you can put it back down and zipped away in less than x30 Secs. Top Bargain & Great for the kids which can be used all year round :)

Everyone wanted one.

Great beach tent for hot, cool or windy weather, although purchased the green with a zip which was much better and more versatile for changing in and protecting from elements.
