    Fantastic for price
    Separate clip in sleeping pods and ground sheet

    Purchased this tent for our first camping trip as a family. Survived a very wet and windy weekend without a single problem. The clip in sleeping areas kept us warm and dry and the main area was big enough for all of us to sit comfortably. A great buy

    Lovely tent

    Recently purchased this tent. For two adults it's perfect. Really don't think it would suit any more adults.
    This advertised a mosquito net on the door. Can anyone advise if this was only on certain models. We don't have one. Would have been beneficial as door doesn't have a window .

    This tent is still a good buy though.

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 camping as a family seeking a tent with 2 separate rooms.
2 years.Repairs: All of our tents can be repaired in your local Decathlon workshop.


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.
Restricted use
Sleeping space width max. 70 cm per person.

3.9 m² living area equipped with a basin groundsheet, which can be flattened at the entrance. Closable plastic window. Pockets on the outside of the bedrooms.
4 poles to be put into the sheaths and place in the metal pins under the flysheet while applying pressure.
Sun protection
The flysheet fabric filters out UV rays with an SPF of 30. Please note: a large amount of UV can enter through a single open door.
Living area has lined flysheet for ventilation and to limit condensation. Front screen door and mosquito screen at the back.
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 stays in position around the tent should remain habitable under wind speeds measuring 50 km/h at ground level.
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 -- Seams sealed using thermobonded tape -140 5000g/sqm polyethylene groundsheet 5000mm 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 (6mm steel).
