It breaks down just as quickly, fold­ing back up into a com­pact rec­tan­gu­lar shape for easy pack­ing. The three-man size means there’s still enough room on ei­ther side of a sprawl­ing queen-size mat­tress to stash your bags. You can’t quite stand up in­side but it still feels com­fort­able, and your head won’t brush against the ceil­ing when kneel­ing. Plus there are re­flec­tive guy lines so you can catch them in your torch at night be­fore find­ing them with your feet.
