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

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
Best tent ever
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought it for Glastonbury Festival and it's done its job 100%. Completely waterproof (I stayed on site till Wednesday as I was working as security officer and it was pouring rain for about 15 hrs), it really lowers the temperature when sunny, blacks daylight out in about 80%. Highly recommended. It will be your last purchase. You won't ever think of buying a different tent. Too bad it doesn't come in bigger sizes yet.
A lifesaver on a hot day but on the small side

I bought this tent for a festival, it was easy to put up and stayed cool and dark even in midday sun. I'm a light sleeper and normally get woken as soon as it gets light but was able to sleep in with this tent. The only downside is that this tent is not much bigger than a double airbed so there was only just enough room for my bags. If there was a version with a porch I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.
Brilliant Tent but...
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
It is a wonderful little tent, that comfortably fits in myself and another, as well as our things - however, if you are using this to sleep during the day, you may notice that the bottom of the tent lets in light, thus making it not completely blackout - but on the whole not a problem at all. Difficult to get it back into the small bag too, but not too much of a problem. Would definitely recommend this tent to everyone!!
Amazing little tent
