The Explore Planet Earth Speedy Sahara Touring Tent has all the features of the regular Speedy tents, but also features extra durability and breathability thanks to a durable poly cotton fly, dual entrances, a side power cord entry and extendable front and rear awnings.
A perfect no fuss touring tent, the Speedy Sahara Tent has an all-in-one construction which means the fly, floor and inner all pitch together in seconds, all you need to do is place a few pegs in the ground.
Windows on each side can be rolled open on warm nights, or zipped closed in adverse weather leaving two lower vents that still enable adequate ventilation. Complete with pegs, guy ropes and a handy backpack carry bag with pockets for extra gear, the EPE Speedy Sahara Tent guarantees less time spent setting up camp, and more time taking in the great outdoors.
Would be a great tent if I was the one who designed it. All good except for the fact rain comes through at the bottom of each window because the designers didn't make the window flaps come down enough. It's not rocket science. Now I have to get it modified. I would pay an extra $50 if they would just perfect the design. Come on people, get it together.
Sorry this doesn't live up to your expectations Damian. There's a bit of a trade off here, when a manufacturer seals a tent completely users have issues with condensation, so they mitigate this by adding vents for airflow but this creates potential for water ingress, particularly if the wind is blowing the wrong way! Might be something to keep in mind if you invest in any modifications. ~ Ben
Best price by far at Snowys and service was excellent. However, the feature "Fully Taped seam" on the Explore Planet earth website is not correct as every zip seam is not taped. This may be why some people have experienced the tent leaking in down pours. I will seam seal the zip seams and the tent should be water proof. Other wise a good tent for what it is.
This is a fantastic tent .We use it most weekends, and it is very easy to set up and pack up.
Bought this tent for its quick set up and pack up and it has passed with flying colours. Also its waterproofness of its fly is fantastic, was tested out in a down pour of 20mm.
Hi I just purchased this tent while in store I asked what the advantages of the two types of tent material I ended up going with this one for durability but in the process of watching youtube on how to fold ......got there in the end i noticed that this tent has a lower waterproofing rate nos im second guessing my choice thoughts. Wasnt told this difference at time of purchase. Also I ve noticed it recommends the use of a ground sheet is there a danger of water pooling under the tent.
Hi Bernice, while the polycotton and polyester pop up tents have different waterhead ratings both styles of tents are waterproof. If you compare this model to our high-end hiking tents, many will have the same waterhead rating as the Sahara. In general we always recommend using a tarp with every tent to protect the floor from abrasive ground. You won’t get any water pooling underneath the Sahara unless you incorrectly set it up on very uneven ground during a heavy downpour. If you have any other doubts or follow up questions about your purchase, we’d love to chat to you about it - just give us a call on 1300 914 007 and one of our sales staff can talk you through your options.
Is it possible to purchase an extra two poles and guy ropes for the second awning please?
hi, will the Sahara hold up in wet weather as good as the normal speedy tent? what are the advantages and disadvantages with the Sahara ? than you
I could not find a two man on the web site. Thanks Jason.
Just wondering what features this has compared to the original Speedy 4?
Hi team, I am keen on purchasing one of these Sahara tents, but am finding slightly different versions to be available. The EPE website shows a different colour and what looks like slightly different specs (ie length is not the same between the two) http://www.exploreplanetearth.com.au/explore-planet-earth-catalogue/speedy-tents-online/speedy-tent-sahara/ Are you supplying an old model – or is this just old information, but indeed the latest model? Thanks
