The breathable, water repellent polyester bedroom and mosquito net prevent contact with droplets of condensation.

Inner space
Length of the room: 210 cm wide room: max. 130 cm, 110 cm at the head and 80 cm at the feet. Boosters in the 4 corners increase the tent's usable volume. 40 cm wide porch offers storage space away from the bedroom entrance.

Product test
QUECHUA tent waterproofing is approved for the whole tent under 200 litres of water/hour/sqm (200mm 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.

Stockage tips
Storage: after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Maintenance tips
1 CLEANING - if needed, clean the tent with soapy water, then rinse (with a hose if possible). Then leave to dry completely. 2 TREE SAP STAINS - Can be very hard to remove Once the stain is fully dry, gently scratch it off while holding an ice cube on the inside of the fabric to make the sap brittle so it will come off more easily. 3 STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Reviews

Sort by:
spacious for one person
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Spent a couple of weeks in it this Summer doing parts of the Ridgeway and the South Downs Way on my own. I needed a lightweight tent at a reasonable budget that I knew I could trust, and I needed it in a hurry. This looked to be the best bet.

Pro's.
Well constructed, good looking, sexy little tent pegs, pitches easily, lots of room for one person, it inspires confidence. Used it in thunderstorms and torrential rain and knew it would stand up to it.

Cons:
Too small for two people and kit. The porch is tiny, too small to get any rucksac in it. Two major problems; the second door overhangs the inner, so that if you try to exit that side in the rain the sleeping bags will get wet. Likewise the main door - the floor of the tent seems to be bigger than the top of the fly, so in even quite gentle rain it was impossible to keep sleeping bags dry. The inner tent needs a second tie, nearer the end, but that's easily fixable with a needle and thread. You can't sit in the porch and cook easily in the rain, and you definately can't cook with the porch door shut.

If they took out the second door and made it a bit smaller and lighter it would be a great one person tent.
looks good, some nice touches
small, and not good in the rain

This tent balances the equation of room-v- weight/size pleasingly.
A roomy tent for a solo camp that is easy to put up. It kept me dry in steady summer rain. Porch space was useful for hiking boots. There was enough space to keep my pack in my tent and still have a comfy sleep. I havne't yet hiked and wildcamped with it but this would be suitable for the job.
quick to put up, porch space
I bent the lightweight pole on first use
Quality tent

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This tent is brilliant. Never had a tent before and chose this because of its weight! Really easy to pitch, took only 7-8 minutes for the first time. Enough room for 2 people - maybe not the most spacious tent but ultralight and compact.
Easy to pitch, ultralight, hooks in the corners
Cannot cover the nets on the inner doors
Tiny, packed up
Used for 3 to 6 months
I cycle so something small was my main objective, its actually quite roomy opened out and I suspect good in a storm and I am comparing it to a very expensive expedition tent
Small package
Not easy to pack
Perfect for motorbikers travelling solo!
Used for More than 1 year
This truly is a motorbiker's best friend. Light and compact due to short size of poles means that it fits any pannier on the market. I thouroughly recommend this tent!!

Super easy to set up and dismantle.
Light, compact and super easy to assemble.
expensive.
Great tent

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Great tent. Hooks in the inside are very useful. Triangle fastening things on the strings to tie down the tent are easy to use. Great size for one person. Seems durable, but we shall see what its like after a year or so. Got some rock pegs separately for problematic hard ground. You can always cook in the alcove at the side of the tent if you really need to instead of doing it completely outside. Just wish the tent bag was slightly bigger to make it a little easier to fit the tent in after rolling it up, but its not that bad, just being picky. ( fyi, you CAN get spare parts for it!) Great value for money. Love quechua.
Good size for one, light, easy to put up
Could have a slightly bigger tent bag
Another awsome product

Used for 1 week or less
Just come bace from the OMM in scotland, and this tent was amazing. Its light and small so easily fitted into a running sack of 30l. It is very quick to put up and laughed at the howling winds and sheet rain we encountered overnight. Considering its low price, the build quality is superb so I highly recommend it. And being 6ft2 there was heels of space inside for me and my team mate.
Space, easy to erect, survival in harsh conditions
There really are none!
Ultralight 2 Tent - Great

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Great tent for the price - does exactly what you need it to and packs up nice and small for sea-kayaking. Survived rain and wind with no problems. Quick and easy to put up but very limited storage space or cover to cook. Really good value for money.
Everything I expected and more
inner & outer touched in one place
No spares for ultralight
Good basic tent that's value for money but no spares available so anything breaks it becomes useless. Better spending a bit more on something that can be repaired
