The truth is have not used it I hope to leave very soon on holidays but it sure is very practical.
The tent was easy enough to set up and kept us dry, however we weren't provided with nearly enough tent pegs. There were only 6 in the bag, which held the poles down and two of the guide ropes. its should state on the website that more are needed as we were at a festival and if our friend hadn't had spare ones we would've been in a pickle.
The tent was big enough for two of us and all of our stuff for a week and was brilliantly waterproof.
When you're at a festival it's very comforting to have two zips on the inside so that you can tie/padlock them together. This tent only had one and this did result in some of my belongings being stolen while I was asleep, I feel if the tent was changed to have two zips then it would be a much safer choice for festival goers.
In terms of value for money.-Excellent. So easy to erect. Took only 4mins from unpacking.
Very well made with strong seems and zips. Over all a quality product that I have no hesitation in recommending.
A great product with good design features
I have a very small question for those who bought this product.
In the product page, it is shown that the tent is 3,2 kg
It is also written under "technical information" that the weight is 3,2 kg.
But on another picture (link is below) of the product, it is shown that the tent is 3,1 kg
However, my friend told me that his tent is written on it that it is 3,4 kg
But he also said that when he weights out with & without the tent; he sees 3,2 kg of difference.
I am planning to join a group of hiking people. I couldn't make a decision to buy or not to buy; as, i think, 200 gr gets heavier during the hike.
If you have an "Arpenaz 3 tent" can you please tell me how many kg exactly it is?
Thank you everyone
if it were 3,1kg or 3,2kg
but is 3,4kg
Thank you for asking us about the Quechua Arpenaz 3 backpacking tent.
You're right about the information. It is confusing.
The product manager and I have just measured it and the result is the tent is around 3,1 kg.
If you have more comments or feedback just let me know!
