Pole : 100.0% Glass - Fibre (FG) Outer fabric : 85.0% Polyester (PES), Outer fabric : 15.0% Polyurethane (PU) Inside room : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Groundsheet : 100.0% Polyethylene (PE) Carry bag : 85.0% Polyester (PES), Carry bag : 15.0% Polyurethane (PU)

Product test
The waterproofing of QUECHUA tents is tested on the complete tent, under 200 litres water/hour/sqm (200mm of rain per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (= mm schmerbers) only measures the waterproofing of the fabric. Our test enables the ingress of water through seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc to be prevented: We test our tents in a wind tunnel on a turning platform to expose each side to the wind. Tests 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, clean with soapy water and rinse (hosing down possible). Must be perfectly dry before storing. 2 RESIN STAINS: very difficult to remove: once dry, it should be (carefully) brushed. An ice cube on the inside to make it brittle and so it can be removed more easily. 3 STORAGE: after use or cleaning, only store the tent perfectly dry to prevent the development of odours and mould.

No leaks, lots of room! *
Used for 1 week or less
Got this tent last year and loved it! It rained a fair bit over the five days, but there were no leaks at all. I had plenty of room for everything (it's always nice being able to stand up inside). It definitely takes two people to put up- I dread to think how difficult it would have been on my own, and getting it straight was a bit fiddly. Overall though I'd say this is a really good tent! I'm looking forward to using it again this coming summer.
Perfect
Used for More than 2 years
Perfect campsite tent. Oodles of room inside and since both bedroom pods are separate it is quite versatile. Withstood gale force winds and rain in the highlands on more than one occasion without any leaks or concerns.

I wouldn't advise anybody to purchase this tent . It lasted one night and then the tent poles snapped and the tent collapsed on top of us !
It does not cope with wind at all !
Looks nice once erected

Super Tent!!
Used for 3 to 6 months
Used this tent for a weekend away in the Lake District - lovely tent, great design, it did not take long to put up or take down. One night it was windy and poured down all night and in the morning not a single drop of rain was to be found in the tent, also because of the colour of the tent it looked very cosy in the morning with the sun shining on it. we got loads of complements saying how great the tent looked and wishing they had one. Would highly recommend - Go and buy one now!

Great tent
Used for More than 1 year
Good size family tent. Comfortable seating area which could hold a table, three chairs and kitchen equipment. Spacious two section sleeping area, Very easy to put up took about 10-15minutes.
Packs up quite small
Great value all-rounder
Took this tent out for a test run for the weekend with my 5 year old. Managed to put up by myself in under an hour. Most time taken getting the poles in and tent upright. Strong structure and the pole design definately works when the tent is upright as plenty of room in the sleeping compartments with sleeping heads less likely to come into contact with the tent.
Overnight torrential rain on the first night and not a drop got inside the tent. Plenty of space in the living area and always a plus with vertical pockets for storage. Great idea to have a front door that can be unzipped at the top half with fly net in place so the panorama can be enjoyed during the evening. Plenty of light gets into the tent with the side windows and colour design of the tent.
Being picky another entrance at the side would benefit but for the price you can't expect to have everything.

1st family tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
1st family tent, and very happy with purchase. . Very easy to put up. With help less than 45 mins
Took this out on the only weekend this summer that rained for 24hrs, and high winds 40mph for almost 12 hrs. Tent stayed dry inside and intact. Slight adjustments to original putting up, stopped water collecting above the living area. Unlike others who we camped with, sewn in living area ment they had extra feature of indoor swimming pool, where ours again remained dry. Porch area coverd the doorway enough to have top half down. Unlike some other tents no additional porch extension area though, so cooking can't take place unless outside. Buying a tarp to compensate for this.
Extremely water resistant, and 40mph winds
No two way zips
Good value spacious tent for a young family

Used for 7 to 12 months
Might be a simple thing but as with all large tents it never quite goes back in the bag like it was when new, maybe some simple instructions on packing back same as at the factory would be good.
Porch area, useful pockets good bedroom sizes
None really
