Technical Information

(2000 mm PU-coated polyester fly sheet, 120 g/sqm polyethylene groundsheet, all seams sealed using thermobonded tape). A breathable polyester inner tent under the fly sheet means you aren't in contact with the condensation that forms naturally on the inside of the fly sheet.

8
Living area
5 m² living area equipped with a basin groundsheet, which can be flattened at the entrance. The shelter from the fixed porch means that the section can be opened even when it's raining. 2 large windows with curtains and 1 large mosquito net in the door. Pockets on the outside of the bedrooms. Clothesline above the window.
9
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.
10
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,e under wind speeds measuring 50 km/h at ground level.

Pole : 100.0% Glass - Fibre (FG) Outer fabric : 85.0% Polyester (PES), 15.0% Polyurethane (PU) Inside room : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Groundsheet : 100.0% Polyethylene (PE) Carry bag : 85.0% Polyester (PES), 15.0% Polyurethane (PU)

Product test
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.

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: 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.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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 !
Looks nice once erected

Super Tent!!
Used for 3 to 6 months
Used this tent for a weekend away in the Lake District - lovely tent, great design, it did not take long to put up or take down. One night it was windy and poured down all night and in the morning not a single drop of rain was to be found in the tent, also because of the colour of the tent it looked very cosy in the morning with the sun shining on it. we got loads of complements saying how great the tent looked and wishing they had one. Would highly recommend - Go and buy one now!

Great tent
Used for More than 1 year
Good size family tent. Comfortable seating area which could hold a table, three chairs and kitchen equipment. Spacious two section sleeping area, Very easy to put up took about 10-15minutes.
Packs up quite small
Great value all-rounder
Took this tent out for a test run for the weekend with my 5 year old. Managed to put up by myself in under an hour. Most time taken getting the poles in and tent upright. Strong structure and the pole design definately works when the tent is upright as plenty of room in the sleeping compartments with sleeping heads less likely to come into contact with the tent.
Overnight torrential rain on the first night and not a drop got inside the tent. Plenty of space in the living area and always a plus with vertical pockets for storage. Great idea to have a front door that can be unzipped at the top half with fly net in place so the panorama can be enjoyed during the evening. Plenty of light gets into the tent with the side windows and colour design of the tent.
Being picky another entrance at the side would benefit but for the price you can't expect to have everything.

1st family tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
1st family tent, and very happy with purchase. . Very easy to put up. With help less than 45 mins
Took this out on the only weekend this summer that rained for 24hrs, and high winds 40mph for almost 12 hrs. Tent stayed dry inside and intact. Slight adjustments to original putting up, stopped water collecting above the living area. Unlike others who we camped with, sewn in living area ment they had extra feature of indoor swimming pool, where ours again remained dry. Porch area coverd the doorway enough to have top half down. Unlike some other tents no additional porch extension area though, so cooking can't take place unless outside. Buying a tarp to compensate for this.
Extremely water resistant, and 40mph winds
No two way zips
Good value spacious tent for a young family

Used for 7 to 12 months
Might be a simple thing but as with all large tents it never quite goes back in the bag like it was when new, maybe some simple instructions on packing back same as at the factory would be good.
Porch area, useful pockets good bedroom sizes
None really
