Get your sleeping quarters set up in seconds with the Explore Planet Earth Speedy 3 Person Tent. The 2016 Speedy has been revamped to include an integrated LED light system on the inside of the tent, all you do is hook it up to an optional standard USB power bank. You’ll never have to fumble in the dark again!
To set up you simply take the Speedy Tent out of its carry bag and pop it open. The all-in-one construction means the fly, floor and inner pitch together, so all you need to do is place a few pegs in the ground. This model uses resin poles which are stronger and more malleable than their competition, which means they’re as easy to set up as they are to pack away.
The windows can be rolled open on warm nights, or zipped closed in adverse weather leaving two vents that still provide plenty of airflow. The Speedy Tent guarantees less time spent setting up camp, and more time taking in the great outdoors.
I own this tent and it is great but unfortunately our 2 single stretchers do not fit side-by-side due to the walls sloping in. Does a double sized stretcher exist that would fit inside the tent? We prefer to use foam mats up on a stretcher for comfort.
From comparing the dimensions of the Speedy 3 to a double stretcher like the Twin Speedy Stretcher Bed (which is the only double we stock) - it seems that you're not going to be able to fit a double in this particular tent because of the slope of the tent walls.
The feet of a stretcher are also probably going to be a bit too abrasive for the floor of the Speedy 3 anyhow, so you might want to consider an air bed like the Dura Sleep Queen Double-High Airbed which will give you that extra elevation off the ground compared to a self-inflating mat.
Speedy 4 tent bag size
I've just re-measured the bag for you, and the size of the bag that the Speedy 4 comes in is 103L x 103W x 5H cm, which is the same size as the tent when it is packed up (out of the bag).
The Speedy 3 bag/tent is a little smaller at 95L x 95W x 5H cm.
This tent doesn't pack up like a normal dome tent - it fits down into a flat, circular bag so that's why those dimensions may seem a little odd.
What is the power consumption of the LED lighting? Trying to work out size of Powerbank required to power the built in lighting.
I've just had a look for you and there is no official power consumption listed on the LED lighting on the Speedy 3 Pop Up Tent.
I've had a chat to a few of the boys downstairs and from their experience with the tent they say that it would be very minimal.
You would only need an average powerbank, something that's around the 1000mAh would be more than enough to power the LED lighting.
Hi, Just wondering how weatherproof you would say this tent is. I am going on the great vic bike ride & if the weather turns bad, I will be stuck with the tent I take. Thanks
The Speedy range is certainly waterproof Brigitte, but if you expect to encounter persistently wet and windy weather, then a compact hike tent is probably a better choice, all you're really trading off is a few minutes of set-up time.
Check out the Zempire range of hike tents, they are great value for money.
Just as a brief aside, I assume you will have vehicle support? The Speedy range are too big for bike panniers, which could be another reason to consider a hike tent.
Let us know if we can assist you further.
Im 6ft 3 would the internal sleeping space be suitable.
I've just popped up the display model to double check for you, and the Speedy 3 has an internal sleeping area of 220L x 200W cm, so you could probably squeeze in.
Just keep in mind that the tent does slope inwards, so you may not be as comfortable as you'd like to be, as the tent wall may be close to your face and feet.
The USB hangs from the tent roof, no way of safely running an extension USB cable. The product photographs showing a cable entering the tent via a signed light point are missleading and inaccurate.
I can see where you could get confused here Kev. The light bulb logo that you are referring to has always been a part of the Speedy tents, it signifies the entry point for 12V or 240V power lead should you wish to run a lantern inside. Recently EPE updated the Speedy range to include LED lights in the roof, and these are designed to be powered from a portable USB powerbank. I'd recommend putting the powerbank in the mesh gear loft, there should be plenty of cable length for this. You probably wouldn't want to leave a USB powerbank outside in the weather anyway. I hope this makes sense.
