    Excellent once you've practiced putting away :)
    Easy to put up and put down after a few practices Head height a little low towards the back

    I bought this tent from Decathlon in Angouleme 2 years ago after having had a quecha pop up tent for nearly 10 years which was becoming tatty after so many years use. (This old tent is still used regularly, water tight and survived some terrible weather). The new 'air' version is wider and seems a little longer too which is very welcome however I did find it 'lower' than it's predecessor making it difficult to get dressed etc. Have had two trips in it this year alone and it survived 'Festival Number 6' with no problem at all (there were so many broken and blown away tents all in the skips & written off cars due to the horrendous weather all weekend). I once watched a test on TV which showed fire crews firing water at pressure at various tents & the little quecha pop up tent did the best so I think the 'pop up' poles must be far more flexible and hardy being all fixed together that more 'traditional' tents.

    Brilliant as a 1-man tent with room to move!
    Pitched and weatherproof in seconds Front door could be problematic if wet

    As always with tents, halve the number of berths it says and you'll be fine. This would be very cosy as a 2-man but is perfect as a one-man. Loads of space for a decent camp bed and kit if you're on your own.
    Small porch area is perfect for keeping wet gear or using a gas stove for that early morning coffee.
    Obviously easy to pitch as it's pop-up but practice putting it down after watching You Tube. Makes it much easier in real life!
    Holds up well in the rain but be careful of opening external front door. Bash the rain off first otherwise it comes inside the porch. Side air vents are very useful, the back one not so but is a nice touch.
    Perfect weekend or festival tent but the packed away disc shape would not be good for hiking.

    A bitter disappointment
    Deceptively low

    Bought this for Glastonbury, was incredibly disappointed.

    I bought it having seen it on display in Surrey Quays Decathlon, where is was displayed relatively high up at an angle and was obviously not secured to the floor. What this did not allow you to see was that when you actually secure the tent, the back is pulled down to such a low flat height, you feel that you exist in a pancake. To make things worse, the inside then sags and hangs, which you bang into. In order to even wriggle into your jeans, you have to go up the end of the tent near the entrance to get some head space.

    I am 5'1 and this should not have been a problem for me, but it was an awful awful awful experience. Despite only buying this in June, I am now going camping again.... and will have to go tent shopping again. This would be totally unpleasant to use a second time.

    The point at which people point at your tent when they walk past and laugh at the shape saying "I'd hate to be in there" is the point at which you know you've made a misinformed choice.

    An utter waste of a hard-earned £70.

Tests
QUECHUA tent waterproofing is approved for the whole tent under 200 litres of water/hour/sqm (200 mm of rain per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (=mm schmerbers) only measures fabric waterproofing. Our test means we can prevent any water getting through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. Wind resistance: We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel and on a rotating plate to expose each side of the tent to the wind. Tested in real conditions.
Designed to
For 2 people camping who want a large tent that's easy to pitch and take down, with a storage area for their things.
Guarantee
All of our tents can be repaired in your local Decathlon workshop.

Tips

Storage Tips
STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is PERFECTLY DRY to prevent odours and mould from forming.
Restricted use
Sleeping space width max. 70 cm per person.

Features

Assembly/disassembly
Rapid set-up. Freestanding tent (you place it wherever you want once set up and, if there's no wind, you can use it with no pegs = direct use!). Folds up easily thanks to the Easy guide system.
Ventilation
Flysheet with 2 side panels that can be extended and fixed with side guy ropes (opening from the inside). The air can circulate in the sleeping area. The sleeping area's entire rear flysheet can also be lifted up from the inside by pulling on a rope.
Protection from the sun
The flysheet fabric filters the UV with a UPF of 30. Warning: a large amount of UV can pass through a simple open door: protect your skin.
Waterproofing
All Quechua tents are laboratory tested (whole tent under 200 L / m² / h for 4 hours), as well as in the field. (Polyester 2000mm PU-coated flysheet, polyethylene groundsheet 120 g/m², all seams sealed with heat-bonded strips). The presence of a breathable polyester sleeping area under the flysheet prevents contact with the condensation water droplets that can settle on the inside of the flysheet.
Wind resistance
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent to the wind. A well-assembled tent with all the guy ropes properly deployed around the tent should remain habitable with a wind speed measured at 50 km/h near the ground (Force 6).
A score to compare products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impacts are calculated over its entire lifecycle using various indicators.
