The Easy Up 2 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 2 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 vent panel and side windows on the Easy Up 2. This is also a great one for time-poor holiday makers who can only get away for a day or two, this way you can spend more time adventuring and less time setting up.
I took my very new tent on a 9 day bike ride. The first night in the tent was very wet. I did send you photos of my predicament but haven't heard back. Moisture seeped up thru the base of the tent meaning that every few hours I would feel that my lilo was wet and I would wipe the seeped water out with a cloth. When the weather was fine the tent was great. The last night was also very wet but other riders took pity on me and put me in a more robust tent. I do use a ground sheet and I thought that the tent base was meant to be able to deal with significant wetness. When my tent arrived I contacted you and sent photos at your request of the damaged tent bag. Again I haven't heard back Rating will improve when you contact discuss these matters with me
Thanks for getting in touch, we want to fix this issue asap. We have a rule in the offices that all emails are to be responded to within the same day... so I'm a bit surprised to hear that you haven't heard back.

Or just to be safe, could you please resend to Nick at email@example.com - he'll get onto it right away. Laine
Hi I considering this tent and the malamoo xtra 3, we do a lot of camping in high wind and rain which of the two do think would stand up better to strong conditions and last longer?
To be honest, it's very hard to separate the two - their design and waterhead ratings are very similar. The important thing is to ensure you utilise your guy ropes as the poles are flexipoles, this is where the tent will get its stability in high wind.
The one major difference in regards to your question is that the Outdoor Connection Easy Up 2 comes with a full seam sealed floor which offers a marginally better protection in the rain.
In the description it says that the tent does not need a fly? What does it have in place of a fly?
I’m sorry for the confusion there, what the description should read is that you don’t need to pitch a separate fly over the inner tent as the fly and inner on the Easy Up 2 are integrated – which is what saves you time on set up. I’ve updated the description now, so it should hopefully make more sense. Thanks for bringing this to our attention Paula!
