Putting up/taking down
Extremely quick assembly or disassembly. The flysheet and the room are pre-assembled. Poles are attached to sleeves in tent, so you can save precious time when pitching. Taking down the tent is equally fast.
To store the tent in the cover, simply attach the poles together in elastics (once folded), fold up the tent until it's roughly the width of the cover and then tightly roll up the tent and poles.
Quechua tents are checked in the laboratory (tent mounted under 200 litres/metre²/hour for 4 hours (the equivalent of tropical rainfall), as well as in field test missions.
40 denier polyester (PE) flysheet, coated polyurethane (inside) & silicone (outside), bedroom groundsheet PE 75D.
Seams sealed with heat-sealed strips.
Bedroom in breathable, water-repellent PE 40D, partly made of mosquito net, to avoid contact with condensation drops.
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a rotating platform where we can expose each side of the tent to the wind.
To test its wind resistance, the tent must be properly pitched, taut but not stretched, with all the guy ropes in position around the tent. It should remain habitable at wind speeds of 70km/h, measured near ground level.
Ventilation and condensation prevention
Room with mosquito net sections for ventilation and parts in water-repellent fabric to protect against condensation and drafts. There is good ventilation at the front of the tent and ventilation at the feet.
To limit condensation inside the tent, it must be correctly assembled, canvas taut, but not excessively so. The use of ventilation and good air circulation limits the humidity inside.
Complete tent made out of 20% recycled material, reduces the environmental impact of the product.
Flysheet made up of 50% recycled materials.
The bedroom is made of a "mass dyed" component that reduces the amount of water used.
The poles are coloured using an innovative anodising method which eliminates the use of nitric and phosphoric acids.
Warranty & After-Sales Service
As designers and practitioners who love our natural playground, we care about the durability of our products, so all our tents are designed to be repairable.
You will find spare parts (hoop repairs...) on the shelves or at the workshop of your Décathlon store, on our website or at the address http://spi-atelier.decathlon.fr/atelier/produit/1621088
If there is a problem, have your tent examined at your Decathlon store.
Storage: after use or cleaning, store the tent only once perfectly dry to prevent any odour or mould from developing.
The impermeability of Quechua tents is validated, with the tent mounted, under 200 litres of water/m²/hr (tropical rain) for 4 hours excluding any water passage through seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. The water column test (= mm Schmerber) measures the fabric's waterproofing. Resistance to wind: tents mounted in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent. We also carry out numerous field tests under real conditions.
