Explore Planet Earth Speedy Pop Up Tent Watch video

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.

  • Compatible with standard portable USB power bank
  • Dual skin all in one waterproof construction
  • Single entry
  • Side windows
  • Interior organiser pockets
  • Includes backpack carry bag, pegs and guy ropes

I bought this for my first time camping 14yr old brother for our trip straight through Aus, outback and all, and he had no problem setting up camp each night. He had it packed up in only a few minutes too. It held up extremely well in crazy winds, kept every single bug and the million flies out so he could eat in peace too. We played card games under the soft led lighting too..not too bright for your eyes but illuminates everything well. And it all arrived before the Easter long weekend when we wanted to leave. All in all, very happy with the purchase and with the company:)

Great tent, easiest pop up tent I’ve used though it takes a couple of goes to get the hang of packing it up. Felt sturdy enough. The LED lights built in were great.
Also- cheapest price and really quick, free delivery was great! Will definitely shop with snowys in the future again.

Excellent tent!

This tent is awesome and I highly recommend it. We are a family of 5 and I bought 2 of the 3 man tents. I was able to fit 3 sleeping mats into the tent, it was a bit of a squeeze and didn't leave much room for stuff but a great weekend tent. (pictures attached below to show the 3 sleeping mats inside) The other tent had 2 sleeping mats and still enough room for stuff.
The LED lights on the roof are a huge plus and the kids loved it.
Super quick and easy to set up and pack away.

Up in secs. Packs in about a minute. Packing instructions were a bit mysterious but once I'd worked out packing, it only takes a minute. Seriously waterproof after weathering a few storms

Works great!

Very quick to set up and put away. Literally up in no time at all. First night using it we had some pretty bad rain most of the night and this thing held up perfectly! Great tent for any occasion!

Totally Awesome!

This tent is totally awesome. I bought it being a single female and needed something I could set up on my own. This thing literally takes 1 minute to set up. The quality is spot on. Snowys service was amazing with super fast delivery and not to mention cheapest price! I've recommended this tent to everyone I know and I recommend it to you too! Thanks Snowy's you guys are amazing!

LED connection1 answer

Does the LED lighting features come with all the cables to plug into a USB power bank? or will thi sneed to be purchased

- 2095(1 year ago)

G'day Aaron, 

I've just checked the display model of the Speedy 3, and yes the cable is for the USB powerbank is included.

Speedy 3, Malamoo or Outdoor Connection1 answer

I am doing The Simpson Desert for 3 weeks. Which tent should I get out of the three pop-up jobs?

- Beerwah(1 year ago)

G'day Lauren,

All three models are similar in size and to pitch, but there are a few main differences.

Ventilation wise the three tents all differ slightly. The Easy Up has two dual mesh/solid doors, and mesh windows on the fly that can be zipped up so there is a bit more temperature control. The Malamoo has one door, and a mesh panel a back for ventilation, and the Speedy 3 has a mesh inner and one door at the front.

The Easy Up has a 5000mm rated floor compared to the Malamoo at 3000mm, and the Speedy at 2000mm so there will be a difference in how they perform in wet weather. 

Functionality wise, the Easy Up is going to be the better choice as you get more options for controlling the temperature, it's got a more weatherproof/durable floor, and an extra set of poles built into the frame, so it's structure is a little stronger and will hold up better over time.

Fitting stretchers for 2 people 1 answer

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.

- Hobart(1 year ago)

Hi Sam, 

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 size1 answer

Speedy 4 tent bag size

- Wembley perth(1 year ago)

G'day Leon, 

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.

LED Lighting - Powerbank Size1 answer

What is the power consumption of the LED lighting? Trying to work out size of Powerbank required to power the built in lighting.

- Liverpool(1 year ago)

G'day Darren,

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.

waterproof1 answer

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

- Richmond(1 year ago)

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.

internal sleeping space size?1 answer

Im 6ft 3 would the internal sleeping space be suitable.

- 2118(1 year ago)

G'day Richard, 

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. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

How do you connect a power pack to the LED lighting USB that ishe only 20cm look good hanging from the roof in the centre of the tent? 1 answer

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.

- CLEVELAND, QLD(1 year ago)

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.
