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.

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..

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.
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
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 !
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.
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
