Waterproofing
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) measures just the impermeability of the fabric. Our test enables the ingress of water through seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc to be prevented.
7
WIND RESISTANCE
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent to the wind. The well-pitched tent with all the guy ropes rigged around the tent must remain habitable in wind speeds of 50 km/h measured near the ground.
8
Poles, pegs
Poles: All our fibreglass poles undergo a double quality control guaranteeing excellent resistance to breakage. Tent pegs: Excellent twisting resistance (6mm diameter steel).

We bought this as a shelter to use at race events. Really easy to pitch and does what it says it will do.
Cool and comfortable

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Lot of space to move around as the height is pretty comfortable. The insects are also kept at bay because of nets being all around. These nets also keep the tent cross ventilated and cool. The door has a single zipper which is quite annoying at times.
Great value for price
Used for 3 to 6 months
Strong and qualitative materials, easy to set up tent, on par with Decathlon's quality. I like the fact that its possible to stand up with extra room. The boxy shape makes it very spacious. Also more than enough ventilation if needed. Absolutely no smell of plastic, very confortable to sleep. The thick bottom layer makes it usable on wet and very wet grounds.
On the down side, a two way zipper would have been better, and the zipper get stuck almost each time.
Also, a hole to run a cable would have been nice.
If there is a cover that goes on top I would like to buy it too.
I recommend buying this product, you probably wont find better value for money 4.5/5
Excellent budget tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought this tent as a cheap, spacious awning to go alongside my Mazda Bongo. I took it around Europe for 3 weeks and It was fantastic. Very easy to assemble, I did it alone a few times. Very spacious and a great for eating in, getting changed etc when you need some extra room.

The only downsides are the zips are not the quality of a more expensive tent so just don't be rough with them. The back large door also does not have a zip, it only closes with Velcro so this maybe not the idea tent for it you are in bad weather.

Overall for £80 this is an excellent budget tent.

Used for 3 to 6 months
I bought this item about 2 months ago. Used it 5 times. Easy to put up, easy to take down. PROBLEMS- The zipper only has a one way zip. In my opinion it should have a two way zip. Plus my wife would always get the zipper stuck in the material and was hard to get out. The other bad thing about the 1 way zip is that the zipper always has to be zipped to the bottom(ground level). The bad thing about this is Taiwan(where I am residing) has a lot of snakes, especially poisonous ones, and if one crawled in my tent and bit my baby or wife It would be horrible. So, if you forget to zip it up completely you have to worry about snakes or other critters entering your tent. Finally, when you want to put your tent away it is not that easy to store it in the bag it comes with. you really have to make sure it is perfectly rolled up in order for it to fit. When it is raining and your tent is wet it makes it that much more difficult. Other than that the height size and air ventilation is pretty good. I give this a 3.9 out of 5.
Could be easier

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Purchased this as a sport day shelter but it is not very easy for one person to put up and improvements could be made the poles are are cumbersome to fit through the roof area and would be better if they were separate and joined at the roof corners this would make it easier to put up in restricted spaces and easier to take down ( perhaps this is why I could not find a video of it being erected!) the size is good but could be easier, I should have purchased the base 2seconds and given the choice would do so but I have used the shelter.
Great design
Used for 1 week or less
Great as a campervan awning , plenty of extra room , sturdy and easy to put up
Love the design shame about the quality
Used for 1 week or less
Took this on a 6 week camping trip unfortunately as others have said the fabric is flimsy and 5 days into the trip it ripped. Really disappointed
