Dear Customers and Users,

You will be pleased with your Fresh&Black tent owing to the freshness and darkness it provides.

You may have noticed small holes on the tent canvas. This is not a product fault. Simply, a waterproof white seam line, used to assemble the panels of the lined canvas of your tent.

To guarantee tent waterproofing, this seam line is covered with a watertight, heat-bonded and translucent strip which allows the light to pass through the small holes of the seam.

The Black component which provides darkness is not completely uniform, so some tiny spots of light can be seen. This does not affect the waterproofing nor the overall tent obscurity (confirmed with laboratory tests).

    Needs a porch to be the ultimate festival tent
    Super dark No porch

    Had use of one of these tents during take-down of a festival. It was so dark that it required a torch to be used inside the tent, even during the day.
    "Fresh and dark" is by no means a misleading name.
    Would I buy one? If it had a porch, without a moments hesitation. In its current form, without a porch, it is not exactly practical for those attending long festivals in potentially muddy locations.

    Absolutely Love this Tent
    Not waking up feeling cooked, not waking up at all No sliders on guys - I thought it was faulty

    I used this tent for two festivals this summer and absolutely loved the cool and dark which allows you to stay asleep in the mornings or nap in the afternoon. It was also cosy and watertight in the rain and wind.
    Easy to pitch on your own.
    I was a bit nervous of the two doors at festivals but it was easy to secure them and great to open both to let the air through and light in during the day.

    I have the Fresh Tarp which makes a good addition to give an outdoor seating area, together they make a very good lightweight festival set up for one or two for a weekend.

    An awesome product compromised at few key places
    Quality for the fabric, ligth weight, strong poles Missing the draw string clamp.

    A tent, best suited for Indian weather. The Black inner lining keeps the tent cooler inside. The silver lining on the outer cover reflects heat. A tent with such technical good features has flaws/ cost cutting at key places. The carry bag of the tent does not have a drag string clamp. This clamp is key to keeping your tent compactly folded in your backpack. To add to this, the strings of the external sheet do not have a length adjuster as well( Both these clamps were available in its predecessor, the arpenaz 3 fresh). I would have also been nice if the interior had more mesh area for better ventilation. If not for these very technical disadvantages the tent is of high quality will give you a very good camping experience.

    Brand's answer :

    Hello Deepak,

    Thanks for your feedback on Arpenaz 3 person Fresh and Black tent. I am glad to hear about the features you liked on the tent.

    My answers for the issues you faced with the tent are as below,

    1. Length adjuster/ Runner missing: Yes, we did give up the runner keeping in mind the usage of an Arpenaz series of tent. Arpenaz series of tents in Quechua are meant for camping in the lowlands, occasional use, where the winds are not so heavy and we do not need a runner there to keep the tent stable, also helps us not increasing the price of our product and staying aligned with the mission to make our products accessible to more users.

    2. Draw Cord clamp: We had the option of either increasing the prices and have a draw cord clamp or give up on it and ensure low price for our user, but still stick to the promise of an Arpenaz product. I will still take this feedback and pass it on to our product manager for the future.

    3. More mesh on the inside: To repeat the promise of the Fresh and Black, keeps the tent cool for sleeping comfortably and keeps it dark making it like a black out inside. Adding more mesh, compromises on the promise the tent offers, but still provides the ventilation required for a user on the recommended terrain of the product.

    I stay available if you have any further queries.

Features

Pitching/folding
Classic dome tent assembly: poles set up with the bedroom, then flysheet fixed on top. Reverse movement to take it down.
Access
2 vertical zips for the outer door. Two D-shaped zips on either side of the inner tent. The entrance doors can be left open, rolled up and attached to the pole.
Ventilation
2 vents at the top, 2 inner doors with mesh in the upper section, space between the flysheet and the floor all round the tent: to allow air to circulate between the bedroom and fly sheet, for more breathability and to limit natural condensation.
Wind resistance
We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel with a rotary table to expose each side of the tent to the wind. A properly assembled tent with all the guys in position around the tent should remain habitable under wind speeds of up to 40km/h at ground level (Force 5)
Waterproofing

(2000 mm PU-coated polyester fly sheet, 120 g/sqm polyethylene groundsheet, all seams sealed using thermobonded tape). A breathable polyester inner tent under the flysheet means you aren't in contact with the condensation that forms naturally on the inside of the flysheet.
