Composition
Pole : 100.0% Glass - Fibre (FG) Outer fabric : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Inside room : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Groundsheet : 100.0% Polyethylene (PE) Peg : 100.0% Iron

Product test
Waterproofing of QUECHUA tents is validated for the whole tent, under 200 litres of water/hour m² (200mm rainfall per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (= mm schmerbers) measures only the impermeability of the fabric. Our test allows to prevent any passage of water through the seams, flaps, openings, zippers, etc. Wind resistance: we test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each face of the tent to the wind. Testing in real conditions.

Stockage tips
Storage - after use or cleaning, store the tent only after perfectly dry to prevent odour or mould.

Maintenance tips
1 CLEANING: If necessary, clean with soapy water followed by rinsing (water jet is possible). Perfect drying required before storage. 2 RESIN STAIN: very difficult to treat: Once dry, gently scrape the stain. An ice cube on the inside will make it brittle and easier to remove. 3 STORAGE: after use or cleaning, store the tent only after perfectly dry to prevent odour or mould.

Decent tent but not perfect
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
We've pitched this tent three times now, one trial run in the garden and on two separate campsites. Overall it's good but we found it a bit tricky to get it completely straight so that the flysheet is taut over all three bedroom pods. Also disappointed that it leaked in the living area where a hook for a window cover is sewn into the seam. The bedroom pods all remained dry in heavy rain.
Roomy, separate bedrooms, quick to put up.
Leak under heavy rain, tricky to put up correctly

shame about poles
Nice tent but poles need quality control or stronger - other tents with similar poles have lasted years
Really useful space with headroom
2 poles cracked - only used 3 times
T6.3 family tent

GREAT LITTLE TENT AFTER LET DOWN BY KAMPA AIRTENT
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
BASICALLY WENT TO FRANCE WITH OUR EXPENSIVE KAMPA AIRTENT SED ONCE OPENED THE BAG AND THE AIR PIPES HAD ROTTED. WENT TO DECTHLON BOUGHT THIS TENT TO SALVAGE MY HOLIDAY I HAVE NOTHING BUT PRAISE FOR IT AND WILL USE IT AGAIN
WATER TIGHT , ROOMY

Excellent Spacious 6+ man tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
First-off, the clips & toggles are no different from other top-end brands eg Eurohike & Outwell, but unlike a similar Outwell tent which can be easily erected in 20 mins by one person, this does need 2 people though can be ready to use in under 15 minutes without instructions.
This was used in constant heavy rain 11+ hours without any leakage - before we packed-up and left.
The tent is spacious and airy, suffered no problems with condensation and allows water to roll-off with no sagging. It has plenty of deep pockets easily able to hold general items including maps.
The ground mat has been cleverly designed to velcro to the bottom of the rooms and hook to the tent, this creates an inner-tray ensuring water simply cannot enter even from the ground.
The only real problems the tent does suffer from is: the mat does not extend into the porch area - you will need an additional mat as especially as the porch is still inside; the room-pods have no windows, only the main tent, the door cannot be extended to a covered porch, it is simply left loose of rolled-up, the guy lines are all white (yellow is better - this can be adjusted by buying replacement lines (generic is fine); also, all zips are single-zipped rather than double so the tent pods really need to be fully-opened from the bottom to the top clambering across the person next to the door is therefore garder.
Sturdy, durable well designed product
Needs at least 2 people to erect, heavy 15Kg
Good tent, but internal clip broke.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Have had 2 of these tents now and the internal bedroom clips have broken on both. It is otherwise a lovely tent but having woken up to wet bedding due to the clip breaking I wouldn't recommend it.
spacious and easy to put up
internal clips brittle

Me and a friend put it up in 10min and was the easiest tent I've put up simples what a GREAT TENT
Internal clips made of brittle plastic
Hi, on my first attempt at putting up this tent the internal plastic clip broke to one of the inner bedrooms. Other than that fairly basic problem it is a lovely design.
