Technical Information

1
Pitching/folding
Classic dome structure: poles fit on the room, then attach the flysheet over it.,. Reverse the process to unpitch.
2
Mattress compatibility
We recommend you use the tent with the self-inflating or trekking mattress measuring 60 cm maximum. We do not recommend the use of inflating mattresses over 6 cm height in this tent due the reduction in living space and resistance to condensation.
3
Ventilation
1 upper back ventilation, space between the flysheet and the ground all around the tent: to enable air to circulate between the room and the flysheet, to renew the air and limit the natural phenomena of condensation.
4
Waterproofing
All Quechua tents are validated in a laboratory (whole tent under 200 L/sqm/h for 4 hours), as well as in the field. (2000mm PU-coated polyester fly sheet, 120g/sqm polyethylene groundsheet, all seams sealed using thermobonded tape). A breathable polyester bedroom under the fly sheet means you aren't in contact with the condensation that forms naturally on the inside of the fly sheet.
5
Resistance to wind
We test all out tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side to the wind. A properly pitched tent with all guy ropes fitted around the tent must remain habitable in wind speeds up to 40 km/h near the ground (Force 5).

Great tent for the price
Used for More than 2 years
This tent will work great for most people for most occasions. First, like with many tents, subtract a person from the mfr's designation. This is a 2-man tent if both campers are hobbits; otherwise, well, either you'd better be with your spouse, or just really, really skinny people. I use this as a 1-man tent on my backpacking excursions, and for that, it's worked well. A few quibbles. First, the tent is too short. At 6'2"/188 cm, this tent is only 200 cm long, and that doesn't take into account the slanted walls. Bottom line is that either my head presses against one wall, or my feet the opposite wall. Why, or why did you do this, Decathlon? The extra nylon to make it longer would have cost you about a quid, for which I'd gladly have paid, given how little this tent costs. Most other quibbles are just commensurate for a tent at this price point: little to no mesh area on the tent, so it can be a bit stifling in warmer weather. The tent door has only one zipper, so you always have to go all the way to one end or the other when zipping it up. Better tents usually have two so you can start/stop zipping wherever's best. Stuff pocket only at one end of the tent. Things like that. Otherwise? Nothing but praise. At 2.2 kilos, it's not the lightest out there, but certainly not porky. To fit it into the bottom of my Gregory backpack, I take out the poles and then smash the tent down a bit and then place it horizontally. I then just put the poles in the bag vertically.
It's definitely waterproof as I've gotten caught a couple of times in decent rains.
Overall, you get a lot for the money here. It's certainly not going to have all the bells and whistles of a tent at a higher price point, so if you camp/backpack just occasionally, give this tent a try. If you're a more serious camper, are 6'2" or taller, or just need a bit better gear, pass on this.
2man tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I BOUGHT THIS TENT FOR A HIKING WEEKEND. IT DONE THE JOB PERFECTLY. IT WAS LIGHTWEIGHT EASY TO PUT UP AND TO PACK AWAY. THERE WAS ENOUGH ROOM FOR TWO PEOPLE AND A BACKPACKS,ALSO ROOM TO MOVE. I WOULD 100%RECOMMEND THIS TENT.
IT WAS AWESOME!
OK tent but flimsy!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Easy to put up but quite flimsy, bought to change into wetsuit. If windy not very stable. OK for a kiddies play tent though.
Great biker tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Got this as a last minute motorcycle camping trip was organised. Lightweight, compact when bagged up and easy to assemble.. perfect for a short trip. I'd say it should be one man to a tent though given you'll be keeping your gear in it. Fantastic bargain price tent.
Unbelievable value
Used for 3 to 6 months
I use this tent for wild camping. The quality is amazing for the price, on par with tents costing 10 times the price. It’s light, packs down into the bag easily every time and is very warm. Decent ventilation too.
Not a drop of water all weekend
Used for 1 week or less
Great size for 2 people, plenty of space to sleep and have bags. It rained all weekend and there wasn't a single drop in the tent! So impressed! Only fault would be that we were missing a couple of tent pegs but it wasn't an issue.
Excellent tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This tent has been used at 2 festivals, both of which had awful weather so this tent has been through hell. Inside compartment remained completely dry whereas all tents around me were leaking badly. Advertised as a 2 man but it's perfect for 1 + bags and drinks. GetV easy to put up and is very light. Only downside is poor lateral stiffness so it does deform considerably in high wind but for the price this tent is everything I expected and more
