Technical Information

1
Assembly/disassembly
Standard dome assembly: install the poles in the sleeping area, then fix the flysheet to the whole thing. Reverse procedure when dismantling.
2
Ventilation
1 high rear ventilation point, space between the flysheet and the floor all around the 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.
3
Protection from the sun
The Ti0² coated fabric has a UPF of 50 +. Warning: 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 (whole tent under 200 L / m² / h for 4 hours), as well as in the field. (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).
6
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/

Good on the inside but bad on the outside
Used for 7 to 12 months
I have just used it twice and the pole has already broke don't know how as I was very careful with it and the bag that holds the tent togather has already torn from many places from the stitching area apart from that it's good and waterproof used it in muddy rains didn't allow anything to enter in the best part is the ventilation awesome tent if u guys are serious in regards with ur products then please improve on the material of Ur pole and bag except that it's nice I would have given 5 stars.
Comfortable and spacious
Pole material and the bag in which the tent is kep
An awesome product compromised at few key places
Used for 1 week or less
A tent, best suited for Indian weather. The Black inner lining keeps the tent cooler inside. The silver lining on the outer cover reflects heat. A tent with such technical good features has flaws/ cost cutting at key places. The carry bag of the tent does not have a drag string clamp. This clamp is key to keeping your tent compactly folded in your backpack. To add to this, the strings of the external sheet do not have a length adjuster as well( Both these clamps were available in its predecessor, the arpenaz 3 fresh). I would have also been nice if the interior had more mesh area for better ventilation. If not for these very technical disadvantages the tent is of high quality will give you a very good camping experience.
Quality for the fabric, ligth weight, strong poles
Missing the draw string clamp.
Response of the brand
Hello Deepak,

Thanks for your feedback on Arpenaz 3 person Fresh and Black tent. I am glad to hear about the features you liked on the tent. 

My answers for the issues you faced with the tent are as below,

1. Length adjuster/ Runner missing: Yes, we did give up the runner keeping in mind the usage of an Arpenaz series of tent. Arpenaz series of tents in Quechua are meant for camping in the lowlands, occasional use, where the winds are not so heavy and we do not need a runner there to keep the tent stable, also helps us not increasing the price of our product and staying aligned with the mission to make our products accessible to more users.

2. Draw Cord clamp: We had the option of either increasing the prices and have a draw cord clamp or give up on it and ensure low price for our user, but still stick to the promise of an Arpenaz product. I will still take this feedback and pass it on to our product manager for the future.

3. More mesh on the inside: To repeat the promise of the Fresh and Black, keeps the tent cool for sleeping comfortably and keeps it dark making it like a black out inside. Adding more mesh, compromises on the promise the tent offers, but still provides  the ventilation required for a user on the recommended terrain of the product.

I stay available if you have any further queries.

Nothing
Super Cool
Am very impressed with the cooling effect this tent has. I was able to sleep well till around 10AM under the hot sun. Better than any other tent for hot conditions. Perfect for the heat.
Durability
Could have been a little bigger
Needs a porch to be the ultimate festival tent
Used for 1 week or less
Had use of one of these tents during take-down of a festival. It was so dark that it required a torch to be used inside the tent, even during the day.
"Fresh and dark" is by no means a misleading name.
Would I buy one? If it had a porch, without a moments hesitation. In its current form, without a porch, it is not exactly practical for those attending long festivals in potentially muddy locations.
Super dark
No porch
Absolutely Love this Tent
Used for 3 to 6 months
I used this tent for two festivals this summer and absolutely loved the cool and dark which allows you to stay asleep in the mornings or nap in the afternoon. It was also cosy and watertight in the rain and wind.
Easy to pitch on your own.
I was a bit nervous of the two doors at festivals but it was easy to secure them and great to open both to let the air through and light in during the day.

I have the Fresh Tarp which makes a good addition to give an outdoor seating area, together they make a very good lightweight festival set up for one or two for a weekend.
Not waking up feeling cooked, not waking up at all
No sliders on guys - I thought it was faulty
great tent for 2 people back packing
Used for 1 week or less
this is a great tent we have the 3 man one as we go back packing this is big enough for both me and my partner and both rucksack to fit comfortably and it is not over heavy to carry takes about 10 minutes to put up. kept us dry and warm in heavy rain and thunderstorms in the new forest.
dark in the morning, quite small when packed
