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.

Only put it up twice, but quick, easy and light. Surprisingly roomy too.
Brilliant! compact, light and pitches super easy
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I used the Quechua T2 Ultralight for over 10 years of hiking the world and it finally gave up last year... I decided to treat myself to the next generation of the T2, this Quickhiker Ultralight 2, and what a great tent that is !!!!
Some very good improvement vs the T2, 2 side entrances, side porch for gear etc... As always, great build quality compact and light. This is also more spacious than the T2, yet still excellent for small pack size and weight.
It pitches super easy and all in one with the chamber attached. Same as the T2, corner pegs first then pole and remaining pegs for tension.
All in a few minutes, perfect!

On a cold night, there is some condensation (to be expected) on the inside of the flysheet but not in the chamber. stayed perfectly dry inside.

Some potential slight improvements for the next update:
- 1 single zip for the chamber (once, ants managed to get into the chamber via the tiny hole where the 2 zippers meet)
- if not careful, when opening the side door, condensation can fall inside, (ie morning little shower ;-)
- make an extra groundsheet/footprint available as an extra accessory (I cut a plastic sheet which I use as an extra groundsheet to keep the tent clean).

Comes with 2 backs, 1 zipper and one stuff sack... perfect.
I put my "clean" tent in the stuff sack and roll my dirty groundsheet around it then all in the zipper bag! (I am glad the zipper bag has some space for extra (extra groundsheet) + compression band) thoughtful design.
Cosy for two and roomy for one (with my bag inside the chamber). I absolutely love this tent and I am sure it will serve me as well as the T2 did... Well done Quechua!

This is a near perfect hiking tent. And at that price, it's an absolute treat... Highly recommended.

PS: Decathlon should also present this tent to the UK Scout Association and DoE Award as they will surely recommend the tent in their Approved Kit list! Many of my scouts' colleagues never heard of Quechua! (I am bias as I am french ;-)
Perfect for a wild camp
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and have just completed a wild camp with my 26year old son on Snowdon. It was a cold and windy night but the tent behaved impeccably. Yes, it is tight for two adults and two large rucksacks but still comfortable. This is an ideal tent if you are looking for something that is light and compact enough to backpack with and at a price that is very difficult to beat.

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.

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
