Decathlon Blackout Tent
As most regular campers know, being woken up very early by the bright early morning sunlight is a common hazard. But now, it doesn’t have to be, thanks to Decathlon’s blackout tents. Blackout tents are the latest tent technology designed to help campers sleep longer rather than wake up in bright early morning sunlight. Decathlon’s range of Quechua blackout tents uses Fresh&Black technology to both manage the heat coming into the tent and create a darkened bedroom to make it easier to stay sleeping past dawn. This innovative technology is combined into one 4-layer fabric. The first two layers are made of white polyester and titanium dioxide that reflect the sun's rays. Meanwhile, the third layer is made from lampblack and absorbs the light and the 4th layer, which is made of aluminium, protects you from the heat. Thanks to this technology, you’ll have less light and heat inside your tent to enjoy a comfortable sleep.
Here at Decathlon, we have a huge selection of blackout tents for you to choose from, including pop up, air and poled blackout tents in various sizes from 2 up to weight-person tents. Each tent uses our blackout technology to create a cool, dark place to sleep in whether you’re at a festival, on a busy campsite with the family or your own enjoying a spot of wild camping.
Hiking is a great way to explore your surroundings and see the sights on a camping trip. If you’re planning a long hike on your next outdoor adventure, you need good quality trekking boots and accessories to protect your feet. Decathlon’s range of walking shoes from top outdoor brands such as Quechua, Forclaz, Merrell and Nikwax are designed to support and cushion your feet, even on those long and arduous hikes. We also stock waterproofing spray, backup boot laces, outdoor gaiters and anti-blister plasters, so you’ll be ready to tackle even the most challenging of hiking trails.
If you struggle to sleep well on camping trips and are either too hot or too cold, you’re probably using the wrong sleeping bag. There are different sleeping bags for different temperatures and climates, and picking the right one can make all the difference to your quality of sleep. If you’re camping during the warmer summer months, opt for a lightweight 1 – 2 season sleeping bag, a 3 – 4 season sleeping bag for those slightly chillier nights and 5 season sleeping bags for exceptionally cold climates.
Summer camping trips and outdoor dining goes hand in hand. There’s nothing better than sharing a delicious meal with family and friends in the fresh air. Make sure you have somewhere sturdy and comfortable to enjoy your meals and explore Decathlon’s range of folding picnic tables. You’ll find picnic tables of all sizes that fold up easily and can be neatly stored away, ready for next time.
