    A really good quality tent for the money I would have liked the groundsheet sewn in

    We bought this tent after a recommendation from a friend for weekend camping trips. It is lightweight but very sturdy and stood up well on the Isle of Skye in a fair breeze. Space wise in the bedroom it is perfect for my husband and I for our weekends as neither of us is particularly small - I think it would be a bit neat to sleep four in the bedroom .The living space is great. We had chairs and gear bags and there was plenty of space. Love being able to stand up straight.
    The only real gripe I have is that the groundsheet is separate so it can be a bit draughty . I would have preferred the groundsheet to be attached.
    The tent is super easy to erect and was up in minutes.
    Great value for money - a lot of tent for the pennies

    Ruined my family's holiday :(
    Rain inside, drafty, not good

    Use the tent twice. First for a weekend. I wasn't very impressed from the beginning as it's not the height it says in the specs. My husband is 1.75m and can't stand strait inside the tent that should be 1.9m. We had good weather ;)
    Then went for 1 week in Wales for a camping holiday. Not a secure tent as it rain inside and it's very drafty. Soaked all our clothes and shoes. Also ruined my toaster that was left on the kitchen cupboard.
    It rains inside if the wind is blowing, through the top net.
    Really disappointed :( I'm usually a happy Decathlon customer but this product is not made for the British weather.
    NOT FUN!!!!

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
4 people family camping who want a tent with a single bedroom and a high living room.
2 years. Repairs: All our tents can be repaired in the workshop of your usual Decathlon.


Care instructions
1 CLEANING: clean the tent with soapy water if necessary, then rinse (with a hose if possible). Dry completely before storage. 2 SAP STAINS: very difficult to clean: once dry, gently scratch the stain. Rubbing an ice cube on the underside will make it brittle, making it easier to remove. 3 STORAGE: after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.
Storage Tips
Storage - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

3 poles to be put into the sheaths and place in the metal pins under the flysheet while applying pressure.
Sun protection

Living area has lined flysheet for ventilation and to limit condensation. Front and rear ventilation.
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 well pitched tent with all guy ropes rigged around the tent, must remain habitable in wind speeds of 50 km/h measured near the ground (force ).
Like all Quechua tents, special care has been given to the waterproofing, which has been verified in lab tests (WHOLE TENT tested under 200 litres of water/hour/sqm!) and on field tests. -- Polyurethane-coated polyester flysheet 2000 mm -- Seams sealed using thermobonded tape -140 g/sqm polyethylene groundsheet 5000 mm resistance.
Poles, pegs
Poles: All fibreglass poles are subjected to a double quality control to ensure excellent resistance to breaking. Tent pegs: Excellent twisting resistance (6 mm steel).
