Technical Information

1
Assembly/disassembly
Standard dome assembly: set-up of the poles with the bedroom, then subsequent fastening of the double roof above the rest. Reverse procedure when dismantling.
2
Ventilation
2 vents at top, 2 internal doors with mesh upper section, space between flysheet and ground all around tent: to allow the air to circulate between the sleeping area and the flysheet, to refresh the air and limit as much as possible the natural phenomenon of condensation.Fresh concept reduces the sun's heat.
3
Protection from the sun
The Ti0² -coated fabric is SPF 50+. Please note: a large amount of UV can pass through a simple open door. Protect your skin with sun cream.
4
Waterproofing
All Quechua tents are laboratory tested (entire tent under 200 L/sqm/h for 4 hours) as well as field tested. (Polyester 2000mm PU-coated flysheet, polyethylene groundsheet 120 g/m², all seams sealed with heat-bonded strips). The presence of a breathable polyester sleeping area under the flysheet prevents contact with the condensation water droplets that can settle on the inside of the flysheet.
5
Wind resistance
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent to the wind. A well-assembled tent with all the guy ropes properly deployed around the tent should remain habitable with a wind speed measured at 40 km/h near the ground (Force 5).

A score to compare products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impacts are calculated over its entire lifecycle using various indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks...). Decathlon is a voluntary player in this environmental information approach. For more info: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

Great value - nice features
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
+ Dark interior - wow, what a nice feature
+ Hanger hook for a light
+ Guylines included
+ Quiet Zipper toggles
+ Sturdy Floor
+ Strong tent stakes

- A little too short! I'm only 175 cm and the walls touch my feet and head when laying down.
- Squeaky rain fly! This rubs against the poles and keeps you awake. Do yourself a favor and make 2 cloth sleeves to fit over the poles (350cm x 3.5cm)
- No vestibule. Would have been easy to include and could enable 2 ppl to camp with gear. Oh well.. maybe in the next version.

Haven't tried in the rain yet. It has held up very well in wind so far.

Used for 1 week or less
Fantastic little tent overall! Spacious for one but a bit cosy for two with kit. Quick and easy to pitch. We use 3 of them inside a large tent for our 3 kids so they each have their own pod/zone. The blackout was the main feature we bought them for and it is totally dark which helps sleep immensely and fun to use torches for bedtime stories even at 8pm in mid summer. Best addition to our camping experience since our gas fridge!

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I took this tent with me to Tanzania for 11 days of camping in various national parks and conservation areas (Serengeti, NgoroNgoro crater). It took it all well even when hyena and wild pigs came sniffing the tent at night, it is easy and quick to put up and take down which was useful, the black out I didn't think worked as good as it was decribed, it was dark to the point of needing a torch to see things clearly during the day, but you could manage with what natural light did actually get in. The tent also felt cooler than other tents during the day, but only slightly.
