    Size, ease of set up

    Perfect campsite tent. Oodles of room inside and since both bedroom pods are separate it is quite versatile. Withstood gale force winds and rain in the highlands on more than one occasion without any leaks or concerns.

    Arpenaz5.2 family camping tent
    Looks nice once erected The frame

    I wouldn't advise anybody to purchase this tent . It lasted one night and then the tent poles snapped and the tent collapsed on top of us !
    It does not cope with wind at all !

The waterproofing of QUECHUA tents is tested on the complete tent, under 200 litres water/hour/sqm (200mm of rain per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (= mm schmerbers) only measures the waterproofing of the fabric. Our test enables the ingress of water through seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc to be prevented: We test our tents in a wind tunnel on a turning platform to expose each side to the wind. Tests in real conditions.

Care instructions
1 CLEANING: if necessary, clean with soapy water and rinse (hosing down possible). Must be perfectly dry before storing. 2 RESIN STAINS: very difficult to remove: once dry, it should be (carefully) brushed. An ice cube on the inside to make it brittle and so it can be removed more easily. 3 STORAGE: after use or cleaning, only store the tent perfectly dry to prevent the development of odours and mould.
