4
Pitching/striking
Extremely quick pitching/striking. The flysheet and bedroom are pre-assembled. Poles are attached to sleeves in tent, so you can save precious time when pitching. It is also quick to strike. To store the tent in the bag, 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.
5
Waterproofing
Quechua tents must pass a laboratory test (pitched tent under a 200 L/m²/hr shower for 4 hours – equivalent to a tropical shower) as well as field test missions. 40 denier polyester (PE) flysheet with a polyurethane coating (inside) & silicone coating (outside), 75D PE groundsheet. Seams sealed with heat-sealed strips. Bedroom composed of breathable and water-repellent 40D polyester and a mosquito net to prevent contact with drops of condensation.
6
Wind resistance
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.
7
Ventilation and condensation prevention
Room partly covered with a mosquito net for ventilation and partly covered with a water-repellent fabric to protect against condensation and draughts. Large vent at front of tent and additional ventilation at the feet end. To reduce condensation inside your tent, it must be properly pitched, with the fabric kept taut without over-stretching. Vents and good air flow will help reduce humidity inside your tent.
8
Sun protection
The flysheet fabric filters UV rays with a UPF of 30. Please note: a large amount of UV rays can pass through an open door. Protect your skin.
9
Eco-design
Entire tent made of 20% recycled materials, thereby reducing the product's environmental impact. Flysheet made of 50% recycled materials. The bedroom is made of a "bulk dyed" component that reduces the amount of water used. The tent poles are coloured using an innovative anodising process that does not use nitric and phosphoric acids.

Product test
The waterproofing of Quechua tents is tested by placing a pitched tent under a 200 L/m²/hr shower (tropical rain) for 4 hours and checking that no water gets through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. The water column test (=mm schmerbers) measures the waterproof rating of the fabric. Wind resistance: tents are set up in a wind tunnel on a rotating platform to expose each side of the tent to the wind. We also carry out numerous field tests in real-life conditions.

Stockage tips
Storage: after use or cleaning, dry the tent thoroughly before storing to avoid unpleasant odours and mould.

Maintenance tips
1 CLEANING - if need be, clean the tent with soapy water then rinse (with a hose if necessary). Then dry thoroughly. 2 RESIN STAIN - ...very difficult to remove: once dry, scrape it off (delicately) by putting an ice cube on the inside to make it brittle and detach it more easily. 3 STORAGE - after use or cleaning, dry the tent thoroughly before storing to prevent unpleasant odours and mould.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought this tent for camping on motorcycle trips. Its a 2 man tent but with motorcycle gear etc its best for a single person. It packs very small and is light, so does not take up much space. Used it in close to and below zero temps, where it was definitely not as warm as a dome tent due to the always open vents at the foot and head of the tent. This same feature however makes it less prone to condensation build up and in less severe temperatures its great. Small, light, relatively inexpensive and well designed.
Great tent
Used for More than 2 years
I have used this tent on 4 cycling camping trips in Germany Australia France and Spain. It’s seen night after night of heavy rain, some decent winds, cold as well as hot mosquito weather..it still pitches perfectly every Time, not a single defect after a total of 7 weeks moving every day...never leaked, has just enough storage in the alcove for shoes, helmets and food bags cooker and kit, sleeps 2x 5’4” ladies perfectly comfortably. We can both sit up in it..At 1.8kg it fits neatly in my bike pannier and is one of the lightest you’ll find with dual entry that does the job so well, I wouldn’t swap it for anything more expensive, it also goes up neat and easy every time takes about 6-7mins, packs away nicely in its 2 bags equally as well, simply pack it the way it unfolded and your tent will stay clean and easy to pack. I added a few extra ultra lite tent pegs. Only criticism I could have is that it gets a bit of condensation on very cold nights between the outer and inner, but that’s common in most small tents with 2 people breathing inside on a cold night, it dries easy before packing away and it’s not on the inside.
GOOD BUT NOT PERFECT TENT

Used for 1 week or less
Bought to replace the older tunnel lightweight tent so I could have two side access points.
Difficult to push the pole into place and on opening in the morning water dripped inside the tent. I do not like the poles being permanently attached to the tent and have yet to fold back the tent into its pack. This looks like being a job.
There was also water on top of the inner tent - very worrying as the rain was very light indeed. The older tents were always waterproof.
Not enough tent pegs?
Used for 1 week or less
How many tent pegs come with it? I got 6. I think minimum needed is 8
Perfect!
Used for More than 1 year
Solid, reliable tent. We've had this tent for over a year now with my girlfriend. We used it a lot, on week long hikes. We got caught in a mountain storm with the heaviest rain and extremely strong winds. The tent held just great! And the pegs don't bend ever.
goot tent but no spare parts avaialable
Used for More than 1 year
I am pleased with the tent, it is light and small but useful. Can fully sit. But, one of the poles broke (someone fell on the tent) and I haven't been able to find the spares to fix it. No other spares fit it.

Great little tent for one person. Might be a bit small for 2 + backpacks. Very easy and fast setting up and pulling down. Light weight. Well waterproof if you treat it like you should! (been around N.P. USA, Canada, Alaska and Europe in freezing, hot and wet conditions. Bottomliner got a bit perforated I guess on stony surfaces so no longer waterproof. Tent is though. Very good value for it's price !
Excellent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I used this tent during a short basic mountaineering course in the Himalayas. For most of the time it was pitched in Base Camp (elevation 10,955 feet).
The tent (Decathlon Quickhiker UL2) performed well. It was wide enough to fit one person and backpacks and the vertical side walls helped increase interior space.
The tent had enough space in the small side vestibule for 2 pairs of boots, helmet, ice axe, harness, rain gear. It was extremely well ventilated. Although there was condensation on the inside of the fly, there was almost no condensation in the inner tent - worked exactly as designed.

I used the tent in rain and moderate wind but did not use it in below freezing conditions or snow. The tent was bright and cheery inside making it easy to find stuff inside the tent, but on the flip side, due to the greenhouse effect, it got very hot very fast, whenever the sun was out.

I didn't use a groundsheet but the floor didn't get damp even though I didn't move the tent for 7 days at a stretch. The tent needs to be pegged out taut to prevent the fly sagging and touching the inner tent.
Bantastic product
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Purchased last year for bikepacking/wildcamping. Compared to all the mainstream manufacturers I think it's an unbeatable combination of everything I wanted. Small, light pack size, loads of room, great quality. Pointless to bivi when you can have a great little light tent. Miles better than an Vango Banchee 200 - and same money (Banchee is tiny in comparison)
Had 10 nights out in it so far. Once woke to find everything frozen but still warm in the tent ( I have got a decent ground mat).
Haven't been in much wind or rain but I'd be surprised if it was an issue.
Despite good ventilation I have still had condensation on cold nights - but that's unavoidable I think. Fine when warmer outside.
Plenty of room for 2 to sleep but wouldn't be much room for bags unless you can squeeze them in the porch.For wild camping I'd prefer it to be a darker colour but I haven't been spotted yet while out! Pitch late/break early anyway.
Looking forward to more trips.
Compact and lightweight
Used for 7 to 12 months
Tricky to pitch at first, but gets easier with each successive attempt. Not enough pegs are provided to properly stay all ropes and rings.
