Product test
QUECHUA tent waterproofing is approved for the whole tent under 200 litres of water/hour/sqm (200 mm of rain per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (=mm schmerbers) only measures fabric waterproofing. Our test means we can prevent any water getting through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. Wind resistance: We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel and on a rotating plate to expose each side of the tent to the wind. Tested in real conditions.

Stockage tips
STORAGE - after use or cleaning, only store the tent completely dry to prevent the development of odours and mould.

Maintenance tips
1. CLEANING - if necessary, the tent can be cleaned with soapy water followed by a rinse (possible hose). Then needs to be dried fully. 2. TREE SAP STAINS - Can be very hard to remove Once the stain is fully dry, gently scratch it off while holding an ice cube on the inside of the fabric to make the sap brittle so it will come off more easily. 3. STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Excellent Tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used this tent on two occasions now one in quite a windy condition and stood up to it pretty well. The tent due to its size is surprisingly quite spacious. Very pleased with product
Great tent

We found this tent good value and excellent quality. We faced 50mph winds and driving rain throughout the night and into the fill owing afternoon and it stayed standing and maintained its shape and strength. We were impressed and would recommend.
Easy to put up and put away even in bad weather
None that I can think of

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Took my two young children on their first camping trip with this tent.
It fit a double mattress and a toddler bed, the 3 of us were very cosy. (It wouldn't fit two mattresses, if that is what you're looking for).
It was easy to assemble/disassemble and fit back in the bag. Packs quite compact and is particularly light to carry, bonus!
The porch area was great for all the extra gear and even managed to store a buggy as well.
It didn't rain, so I can't comment on that.
Overall a great tent for the price.
Plenty of room, porch area quite big
Great for the price

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
We brought this as we were going to glastonbury and wanted something a bit bigger and with more space.

It says 4 man but I don't think it would be comfortable as a 4 man, 3 man would be ok, but there was just two of us. It meant we could have the space to 'unpack' and not struggle to get changed with both of us in the tent at the same time. I'm just over 6ft and I couldn't stand up, but I knew this prior to purchasing it and found it not really to be an issue. For the price it certainly was well worth it.

It kept dry, and the porch was certainly of added benefit to store everything muddy in.

If you are looking for a 'cheapish' tent (I know that sounds bad but it isn't) then buy it, worth the money and from a very decent brand of tents. You'd be unlikely to find something as good as this for a similar amount.
Space, Porch, Ease of putting up and taking down
Fantastic tent and easy to put up and down!

I was able to put this tent up and down in less than 10 minutes by myself. The inside and outer layers are connected so all you have to do is insert 3 poles and peg it down!

Has enough room in the front to sit comfortably on chairs when it's raining or cold. Couldn't quite fit 2 double air beds in but still enough room for 4 people in the tent.
So easy to put up!
Not quite big enough for two double air beds
Does not come with ground sheet!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
We were disappointed that the front of the tent doesn't meet the ground to attach a ground sheet. Once the tent was up we realised a ground sheet is not provided, so we were forced to buy one separately. I recently saw that the Arpenaz 4.1 comes with a fitted ground sheet that meets the base of the tent. For the £10/15 difference get the 4.1. When is rains the front of the tent gets wet inside.
Quick to put up
Comes with no ground sheet

I thought it was a bit flimsy when I put it up but it lasted in 45 mile an hour winds with ease and torrential rain for 7 hours not a drop of rain came in could do with a ground sheet for the front part other wise cannot fault
Easy to put up by one person 10 mins most
Bit tight for 4 persons
