4
Pitching/Taking down
Quick to pitch/take down. Pre-assembled flysheet and bedroom. Poles are attached to sleeves in tent, so you can save precious time when pitching. It is just as quick to take down. 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.
5
Waterproofing
All Quechua tents are laboratory tested (whole tent under 200 L/sqm/h for 4 hours) as well as field tested. 40 denier polyester flysheet, PU coating (inside) and silicone coating (outside), 75 denier polyester ground sheet. All seams are sealed using thermobonded tape. Bedroom in breathable, water repellent 40D polyester and mosquito netting to help prevent contact with 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
Bedroom with mosquito netting for ventilation and water repellent fabric to prevent condensation and draughts. Large vent at front of tent's fly sheet and additional vent at feet end. To reduce condensation inside your tent, it must be properly assembled, with the fabric kept taut without over-stretching. Use of vents and good air circulation will help reduce humidity inside your tent.
8
Sun protection
The flysheet fabric has an SPF rating of 30 and filters out UV rays. Please note: a significant amount of UV radiation can pass through a single open door. Protect your skin.
9
Eco design
20% recycled material for reduced environmental impact.
10
Guarantee
All tents sold by Decathlon are guaranteed for 2 years of normal use (your receipt or loyalty card is used as proof of purchase). In the event of a problem, have your tent checked out in your local Decathlon store. For spares parts and pole repairs visit your Decathlon store workshop.

Product test
QUECHUA tents are assembled and tested for waterproofing in tropical rain conditions (200 L water/sqm/h) for 4 hours to ensure no water gets in through the seams, flaps, openings and zips etc. The water column test (=mm schmerbers) measures the fabric's waterproof properties. Wind resistance: tents are set up in a wind tunnel with 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, ensure your tent is perfectly dry before storing to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Maintenance tips
1 CLEANING - clean the tent with soapy water, if needed, and then rise (hose down if possible). Then dry thoroughly. 2 RESIN STAIN - very difficult to remove: once dry, scratch carefully and position an ice cube on the inner surface to make it more brittle so that it will flake off more easily. 3 STORAGE – after use or cleaning, ensure your tent is perfectly dry before storing to prevent odours and mould from forming..

Amazing value for a low price lightweight tent
Used for More than 1 year
Spacious for one and big enough for two on lightweight adventures. I have used it in Scotland on sea kayak expeditions brilliant in snow wind and rain and back packing nice and lightweight for two people a great easy pitch good value tent I love it.
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

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
