Assembly/disassembly
Extremely quick to pitch and unpitch. Pre-assembled room and flysheet. The poles are fitted on the tent opposite the sheaths to save precious time when pitching. Unpitching is also quick. To tidy the tent in the cover, re-attach the poles in the elastic (once folded), fold the tent on itself until it reaches the same width as the cover, then roll everything tight together.
5
Waterproofing
Quechua tents are tested in a laboratory (pitched tent under 200 litres/m²/hour of water for 4 hours, i.e. a tropical shower), as well as in mission tests in the field. 40 denier polyester (PE) flysheet, coated polyurethane (inside) and silicone (outside), 75D PE groundsheet. Seams taped with thermo-bonded tape. Breathable and water repellent 40D PE inner tent with a mosquito net section that prevents contact with drops of condensation.
6
Wind resistance
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent to the wind. To guarantee its resistance to the wind, the tent must be well mounted, taut but not excessively so, with all the guy ropes properly deployed around the tent. As such, it will remain habitable with a wind speed measured at 70 km/h near the ground.
7
Ventilation and limitation of condensation
Room with mosquito net sections for ventilation and parts in water repellent fabric to protect against condensation and drafts. There is good ventilation at the front of the tent and ventilation at the feet. To limit condensation inside the tent, it must be correctly assembled, canvas taut, but not excessively so. The use of ventilation and good air circulation limits the humidity inside.
8
Eco-designed tent:
Whole tent made of 20% recycled materials, reducing its environmental impact. Flysheet made of 50% recycled materials. The bedroom is made in a "self-dyed" component that reduces the amount of water used. The hoops are coloured using an innovative anodising process which eliminates the use of nitric and phosphoric acids.

Warranty & After-sales service
As designers and practitioners who love our natural playground, we care about the durability of our products, so all our tents are designed to be repairable.

Composition
Outer fabric : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Inside room : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Pole : 100.0% Aluminium

Test Product
The impermeability of Quechua tents is validated, with the tent mounted, under 200 litres of water/m²/hr (tropical rain) for 4 hours excluding any water passage through seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc... The water column test (= mm Schmerber) measures the fabric's waterproofing. Resistance to wind: tents mounted in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent. We also carry out numerous field tests under real conditions.

Stockage Tips
Storage: after use or cleaning, store only after complete drying to avoid any odour and mould from developing.

Great wild camping
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used wild camping on the South Downs this January. Dipped below freezing, wind and rain. I was very impressed. Stayed warm and dry. Using it solo there's plenty of room for admin while keeping sheltered and dry. I imagine for 2 people you'd just have room to sleep, and have to do kit admin outside.
Vents well, not much condensation. Very light. A breeze to put up. Has to be very taught to reduce noise in the wind. Very, very impressed.
Good quality tent, Quick
Used for More than 2 years
I had chosen this tent for its weight and size closed. Designed for soft ground but with my technical acknowledged I was able to set it on a car park. I had camped on half of the word in three years and a pole just started to bend, no complaining about it. As the name said its Quick to open and easy to close.
Garden Test in Thailand - 71 year old kid
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I set up the tent in my garden in Thailand. Put a plastic sheet down first. A little difficult to get it stretched into a good shape so that it doesn't sag when you're inside.
It rained hard and no water came in. After a week, I noticed some wet patched on the ground sheet. Water had collected between the ground sheet and plastic sheet. Surprised to see it come through though.
Clipping open the sides was inadequate but I used plastic clothes pegs.
In Thailand, it felt humid and claustrophobic, except in the hard rain which was nice. I want to try an additional sun shade with a small tarp.
All in all, I like it. Love it.
extremely durable and lightweight for this price
Used for More than 2 years
I've used this tent 3 months a year for the last 5 years and I can testify of the durability of the materials. The zips, clips, stitches, poles and strings are still in perfect condition. Last summer I got a rip in the fabric of the flycover which I have fixed with duct tape and the repair has held well in rain and wind.
I love the design, so lightweight, compact when packed and very fast to put up.
Would give it 5 stars if it had one abside on each side.
One man and his dog...
Used for 1 week or less
Withstood 45mph winds and pouring rain. The only water in the tent was brought in by me or a very wet dog, but no condensation in the morning and certainly no leakage.
Pitched without a practice in under 5 minutes (I did watch the video) and taken down and back into its small package in about 10 minutes.
Value for money and a great little two man tent.
Quickhiker Ultralight 2-person tent.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Only used it twice so far but it is nice and light and folds up small. You need to apply quite a reasonable amount of force to get the end of the pole into its retainer but the design is well thought out, it is quick to pitch and it is reasonably spacious for its size. Not tried it out in rain and wind yet but always trust Quechua to test their products well.
used for 3 nights, easy to erect and take down.
Used for 1 week or less
used for 3 nights, easy to erect and take down. Good room inside very pleased with purchase.
Great tent for trekking+touring
Used for 3 to 6 months
I have spent many days looking for a decent cheap-ish tent, and decided to settle for this one. There are similar products on the market, but somehow decathlon managed to squeeze it into a smaller package than others whilst maintaining a lower price and maintaining a low weight. I think the only way you are going to get better quality, is if you spend over 300 pounds on a tent.

It has some really neat little details, which shows someone actually thought about this, which is awesome: for example on a windy night I was impressed to notice that the mesh on the door is designed to be above my face, so i do not get a cold.

So far I have used it on 3 separate trips, each about 3 nights long over Spring-Summer season, and have only positive things to say about it. I have also shared it with a person and did not find it uncomfortable. I am about 1.80 tall and managed to get some stuff below/above me inside the tent without too much of an issue .
Amazingly inadequate set-up instructions.
Used for More than 1 year
Four cartoon images do not tell you how to erect this tent.
Perfect tent
Used for 1 week or less
I was on hicking over å weekend. Where I tried different places to setup tent. And I was really suprized how easy it was to work with.
Another thing is weight and volume of the when you hicking around.
So I'm looking forward to my next trip :)
