Our tester, Peter Horvath, measures how long it takes to put the tents up and take them down. Times range from 8–20 minutes to put up and 5–15 minutes to pack up. Peter sets up each tent once to get familiar with it, and then times and scores the second attempt.
These times are only a guide because they're based on the times of experienced users putting the tent up in ideal conditions. Times will vary depending on experience, weather and ground conditions.
