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.

    this is a great tent we have the 3 man one as we go back packing this is big enough for both me and my partner and both rucksack to fit comfortably and it is not over heavy to carry takes about 10 minutes to put up. kept us dry and warm in heavy rain and thunderstorms in the new forest.

Features

Assembly/disassembly
Standard dome assembly: install the poles in the sleeping area, then fix the flysheet to the whole thing. Reverse procedure when dismantling.
Ventilation
1 high rear ventilation point, space between the flysheet and the floor all around the tent: to allow the air to circulate between the sleeping area and the flysheet, to refresh the air and limit as much as possible the natural phenomenon of condensation.
Protection from the sun
The Ti0² coated fabric has a UPF of 50 +. Warning: a large amount of UV can pass through a simple open door. Protect your skin with sun cream.
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 40 km/h near the ground (Force 5).
A score to compare products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impacts are calculated over its entire lifecycle using various indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks...). Decathlon is a voluntary player in this environmental information approach. For more info: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
