The Easy Up 3 from Outdoor Connection is so easy to set up, that even Russell Coight could give it a fair go. All you have to do is take it out of its bag, pop it open and peg it out. Simple.
The Easy Up 3 has a cosy interior, a domed shaped roof, and best of all it has an integrated inner and fly, so it’s the ultimate in easy use tents. Outdoor Connection have really put everything in place to keep this tent waterproof, with a waterhead rating of 2000mm, taped sealed seams to prevent water sneaking in through the stitching, and a 5000mm+ waterhead floor you’ll stay nice and dry from whatever mother nature throws at you.
There’ll be plenty of air flow, and minimal condensation thanks to the ventilation panel and No-See-Um mesh covered windows on this tent. This is also a great option for time-poor holiday makers who can only get away for a day or two - that way you can spend more time adventuring and less time setting up.
comfortable, waterproof, spacious, easy to set up and
pack, great ingenuity of snowy for this magnificent
tent, recommend it for all. I love it and I bought 3 of them.
God bless Snowy and the staff.
Hi there, I'm interested in this Outdoor Connection Easy up 3 and also the EPE Pop up Sahara. I was wanting advice and opinion around the advantages of one over another. Is the canvas on the Sahara better? Are the extra poles on the Outdoor connection better? Which would provide the best ventilation? Which would provide the best water proofing? Thank you in advance.
Material - The Sahara is made from a poly/cotton canvas which will breathe a lot better and is more durable than the polyester of the Easy Up 3. However, the polyester has a higher waterhead (waterproof) rating.
Poles - The additional pole set in the Easy Up 3 does give it a bit more structure. However with the Sahara, when pegged and guy roped out, this should be enough to give the tent plenty of strength in remaining upright.
Ventilation - without a doubt, the Sahara wins this one hands-down with a big open side mesh panel and the canvas, the tent is going to breathe a lot better than the Easy Up 3.
Hi, i see someone has asked a similar question below, but still not 100% clear on the answer. Could you fit one exped lxw (bought from you - love it) plus a smaller mat side by side - our second mat is 183cm * 51cm? I don't mind if the exped LXW needs to have it's head and toes hard up against the inner doors (I'm a lot shorter than the mat - i bought it for the comfort and width). Thanks.
The sleeping area dimensions of the Easy Up 3 is 200L x 170W, and the combined width of the Megamat 10 (77cm wide) your mat (51cm wide) equals 128cm.
From there you have to then allow at least 20cm to accommodate the slope of the walls, so if I had to take a guess, it would seem like your mat megamat 10 will fit, but only just - and with no room for any gear.
Hi . How does this tent compare to the oz tent in regards to condensation and also does the inner door zip close for privacy or is it only the outer door not that it really matters i guess. Thanks
The inner mesh door of the Outdoor Connection Easy Up 3 is attached on the same side as the outer door and does zip up.
In terms of condensation, it's likely that the Oztent Malamoo Tent will perform a little better as there are more opportunities for ventilation which have been designed into the tent. However, the catch to this is that the Outdoor Connection tent will likely perform better in wet conditions.
Hi guys, I bought an oztent gecko stretcher from you a while ago, will that fit in this tent?
The sleeping dimensions of the Easy Up 3 are 200L x 170W and the Gecko Stretcher is 190L x 90W cm - so you would be able to just it in, but it would be right up against the inner of the tent which isn't going to be an ideal fit.
Hello, I am looking at purchasing a 3 person tent for me and my wife. I'm not sure what to pick between this or the Malamoo X-tra as both look approximately the same on paper. Both tents have similar dimensions with this one being a bit smaller (internally) than the Malamoo and a bit more height. 2 Questions if I may, 1. - what's the difference between the two as they seem very very similar on paper. 2. - which one would you recommend and why ? Regards
I can totally see where you're coming from - on paper they are a very similar looking tent. We've got both on display, so I've had a look to give you a first-hand comparison.
The Easy Up three has an extra set of poles built into the frame, so it's structure is a little stronger and will hold up better in the elements. It also has two dual mesh/solid doors, and mesh windows on the fly that can be zipped up whereas the Malamoo has one door, and only a mesh panel a back for ventilation. The Easy Up also has a 5000mm rated floor compared to the Malamoo at 3000mm.
Functionality wise, the Easy Up is going to be the better choice as you get more options for controlling the temperature/comfort of the tent, and it's got a more weatherproof floor.
But is it likely to fit a Megamat 10 LXW strapped to an ordinary full-length Thermarest (shorter and narrower than Megamat)? Not sure of Thermarest variety and exact dimensions, sorry.
I've just tried this for myself in store (with a bit of help) and we found that we couldn't get two Exped Megamat 10 LXW's inside the Easy up 3 from Outdoor Connection.
You would be able to fit one plus your gear though if that helps.
After checking with the information provided by the supplier, the Easy Up 3 actually doesn't have an official season rating.
It does have a 5000mm Floor and a 2000mm fly so you will get good water protection, but due to the fabric and construction - I'd say it would be 2-3 season.
