Great at first
keeps cool when hot, sewn in lights.
Not good when rains, shape changed on second use
lucy (United Kingdom)
30-39 years old Woman3 5
used for 2 to 8 weeks During first use, this tent was great in hot weather. Need 2 people to put up but relatively easy and stress free. The size is great and the living area is large too. During the second use on another camping trip, it rained all night and I found that rain was collecting in certain places and putting strain on the tent, I had to push it up on the inside in order to clear the rain puddles. Also, the shape of the tent changed slightly upon the second use causing the area above the head on the inside of tent to lower, so we had to switch our sleeping bags around to sleep with head near door of tent.
Quick to put up, Airy, Waterproof, Easy to Clean
Cumbersome to Carry

used for 3 to 6 months Had this tent for a while and its been on 5 outings
First thing learn how to set it up and pack it up before you go anywhere with it.
1st outing Good old Glastonbury. Bit of a hassle to carry in the crowds. However on set up it was literally done in seconds. Tent worked really well and stood up to what was literally thrown at it. Cleaned off the mud easily. A slight problem with the bag as it broke. Decathlon replaced it without hassle.
2nd outing a weekend in Suffolk in a camp site. The worst thunder and rain I've ever seen had me retreating to the pub. Expecting the worst on return, there was no water anywhere in the tent despite the shoe deep flood all around the outside of it. I watched it in the winds and the rain and it just took whatever was thrown at it. At one point I thought it had been blown completely flat but it just stood right up again. Slight issue with the inner tent zip. Good old Decathlon sorted it without any quibble.
3rd outing Womad Festival Malmesbury Wilts. Really sunny weekend and the airflow sides meant that you could lie in til 11 am while everyone else was up and sweating by half 8. Great tent easy to set up and pack down once you've got the hang of it and the lights are an excellent extra.
4th outing Naxos Greece yep. Crazy!!!! booked it in as sports equipment with the cheapies bought it a gong bag (as a flight bag) 100cm one does the trick, strapped it to my back pack frame and flew the thing to Greece. Tent was perfect, a bit of a monster to carry round but with all the buses and taxis available I didn't have to walk far ever. Only across a few port sides getting onto ferries. Airflow system worked well. Had the roof open to the stars. Worked well. Probably a bit too much too carry if i'm honest. (Learning curve)
5th outing Exmouth Devon again worked perfectly well, was a bit cooler but the inner tent with the airflow pulled in and zipped down retains the heat quite well. Others very impressed how quickly this can be set up.
As the inner tent is already in place you only have to put the ground sheet down then the tent goes over the top of it. If it is raining you can get the tent up and shelter in a few minutes, absolutely great in this situation. Make sure you have done a few practice runs though.
Great for warm-weather camping
Opening roof, cool, dark, quick, reading lights
Groundsheet isn't sewn in
Barney (United Kingdom)
40-49 years old Man5 5
used for 2 to 8 weeks The separate groundsheet means heavy rain causing standing water on the ground would flood in, so we use this for summer camping only - but it's fantastic for that! The opening roof is great in the mornings when it warms up, and the white outer stops the greenhouse effect whilst the black liner keeps it dark inside. The lights are a great touch and it's quick and easy to put up and take down.
WOW What a tent
Needs a few more pegs & size when packed
andy (United Kingdom)
40-49 years old Man5 5
used for 2 to 8 weeks What can i say....WOW, what a tent.
We brought this from the Lakeside Store after going a buy a cheaper one but saw there "Pop Up" tents being shown to another customer and was then hooked.
First of all this tent is so easy to put up and take down even by 1 person.
Once up you will not be disappointed due to the size of the tent, the looks and the LED lights.
The tent will hold 2 x 120 Quechua air beds with space either side and down the middle so making this tent ideal for Families and Couples alike.
I have taken this away on 2 Scout Camps and has stood up to the Great British weather- Raining hard and the end of a Hurricane(40-50 MPH winds)-we had 2 other tents with broken poles.
The LED lights on this are fantastic so much so that i did not use another torch whist in the tent.
You may also be the envy of the site so be prepared to answer question and to show off your tent to other campers.
The Thermal insulation on this tent is superb even on a hot day in August.
Another great feature/idea is the "Sun Roof", never had one before and to be honest don't think i will ever use it in the UK but you never know.
If you have all of the "wings" undone for the air flow then this tent looks like its flying.
One little niggle for me is the size of it when its packed away in its bag, will not fit through the loft hatch but will live with it because its such a great tent.
A little hint, if you buy this and you carry it by the "ruck sack" straps make sure no one has a camera, as you will end on Facebook looking like a turtle!!! you have been warned.
a fair weather tent
great ventilation lighting is fantastic
flaps wildly and noisy in windy weather
sarah (United Kingdom)
40-49 years old Woman4 5
used for 2 to 8 weeks I love the space in this tent and I think the air options would be perfect in hot weather. In future I would choose my pitching spot carefully to minimise exposure to strong winds as the roof cover flaps, lets in circulating air and makes a loud noise which might keep you awake at night. Study the video carefully to ensure that you know each step of putting the tent down because it isn't as easy as it looks and I have had 4 pop up tents of varying designs before! I am happy with the tent generally and the integral lighting is fantastic.
Dimensions and weight 4.05m by 2.95m on the floor without guy ropes.
The very spacious 2.25m long by 2.80m wide bedroom can fit 2 2 sleepin'bed camp comfort beds with their headrests raised.
Mini-living area with 1.57m max headroom. Floor contact surface: 1.70m by 2.30m min and 2.80m max. 4 adults can easily be seated around a table with space for their belongings. Large storage bag.
Cover Disc: 93 cm diameter.
Thermal insulation The 'Fresh' flysheet material is exclusive and patented. It noticeably reduces heat in a tent exposed to the full sun, thanks to its reflective and low emission properties. It has 3 layers: polyester fabric; coating with titanium dioxide; then an aluminium-coated layer inside. The fabric reflects 56% of the sun's energy, absorbs 35% and only lets 9% inside the tent.
Ventilation 1 vent at the back of the bedroom. The ceiling of the bedroom opens completely. 3 vent positions on the sides of the bedroom: closed, open (protected from the rain), rolled open. Everything can be adjusted from the inside and the outside. The roof of the living space is fully ventilated. The entrance door has an upper part which can be turned into a mosquito net. The flaps at the bottom of the fly sheet can be tied up to leave ventilation space. Ventilation limits condensation.
Lighting system 4 lights with individual switches. 2 reading lamps, 20 lumens each (0.3 watt). 1 90 lumen light in the living space, and 30 lumen light under the front door porch.
"Warm white" LED bulbs. Battery case (4 x LR6/AA supplied). Around 7.5 hours of battery life in constant use.
Pitching/folding Has a clever pitching system, with the groundsheet being put in place and attached to the tent before unfolding. Easy to position and pitch the tent correctly. Tent can be unfolded and set up in 2 minutes. Quick and easy to fold up thanks to the "EASY" system. (Please see videos at quechua.com).
Waterproofing Like all Quechua tents, the waterproofing has been particularly well-developed, approved in lab tests (WHOLE TENT in a shower of 200 litres/h/sqm!) and on field tests. (PU-coated polyester flysheet, 140 g/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.
Poles/pegs Solid 6.5 mm diameter fibreglass poles. / 5 mm galvanised steel pegs for good twisting resistance.
UV protection (protection against Ultraviolet rays) The 'Fresh' fabric has a SPF of 50+.
Please note: a significant amount of UV rays can enter through a single open door.
Guarantee All our tents are guaranteed for 2 years of normal use (your invoice or receipt gives proof of purchase date and price). In the event of a problem, have your tent checked at your local Decathlon store.
Wind resistance We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel and on a rotating plate to expose each side of the tent to the wind. A properly assembled tent with all the stays in position around the tent should remain habitable;e under wind speeds measuring 50 km/h at ground level.
flysheet: double PU-coated polyester with titanium dioxide outer layer and aluminium layer inside; bedroom: breathable polyester; ground sheet: polyethylene; poles: solid fibreglass.
QUECHUA tent waterproofing is approved for the whole tent under 200 litres of water/hour/sqm (200mm of rain per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (=mm schmerbers) only measures fabric waterproofing. Our test means we can prevent any water entering through seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. Wind resistance: We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel with a rotary table to expose each side of the tent to the wind.
STORAGE: after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould forming.
1 CLEANING - if needed, clean the tent with soapy water, then rinse (with a hose if possible). Then leave to dry completely. 2 TREE SAP STAINS - Can be very hard to remove Once the stain is fully dry, gently scratch it off while holding an ice cube on the inside of the fabric to make the sap brittle so it will come off more easily. 3 STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.
