Quick to pitch. Free-standing tent (place it wherever you like, and if there's no wind, no need for pegs = ready to use!). Easy to fold thanks to the guiding system.
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.
Flysheet with 2 side panels that can be opened out and attached to the side guy ropes (open from the inside). Air can circulate in the bedroom. The entire rear flysheet can also be lifted from the inside, by pulling on a string. 2 spaces between the flysheet and the ground on each side in the bedroom to enable the air to renew itself and limit natural condensation. Fresh concept to reduce the heat from the sun.
All Quechua tents are validated in a laboratory (whole tent under 200 L/sqm/h for 4 hours), as well as in the field.
(2000 mm 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.
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 50 km/h near the ground (Force 6).

Used for More than 1 year
The tent mounts by itself when opening the buckles.
Putting it away is slightly more complex but still way faster and easier than a normal tent.
If you are buying this I would recommend passing by a Decathlon shop and ask them to show you how it's done.
It is really fresh and dark. About freshness you need to be a little smart and close the openings if it is too cold. During summer camping I could always find my thermal comfort, wind or not!
No water leak whatsoever under the rain.
In this particular model there is no space for backpacks. For that you need to buy a bigger one. Also this tent, when folded, is in the shape of a large disk, therefore not usable if you are planning to carry it while hiking. You need to camp close to you car.
The interior is well organized, there are pockets and a hook where you can attach the lamp.
Excellent value for the price
Used for 3 to 6 months
I’m giving it 5 stars not because it’s the best tent ever but for £65 it is very, very good for what it does.
Yes, it takes a ninja to put the tent up I’m in the times stated (pegs and guide ropes) but is it easy and up in 5mins? Yes.
I actually used it for a summit camp on top of Ben Lomond, Scotland (only advisable for low wind forecasts) and it was absolutely fine, even when the forecast was wrong and I got hit with 30-40mph wind and gusts. With bags and stuff, it would be a struggle to fit two people (I had a lot of camera gear, for example) and it’s not designed to be carried up a mountain, so not a compact thing when packed away.
But it’s a great tent. And for the price, it’s an excellent tent.
