Why does greige help to reduce the environmental impact?
Greige means that the fabric is not dyed and is in its raw colour state. Given the significant environmental impact of dyeing, we chose to use this process on part of the flysheet of the tent.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we chose to use the Dope Dyeing process in which the colour pigments are added during the production of the yarn itself. We chose to use this process on part of the flysheet and the bedroom of this tent.
Pitching and striking the tent
Take advantage of the EASY technology and its push button to pitch your tent in 1 minute.
Thanks to its free-standing structure, the tent can be moved to the required location after it has been deployed. Instant foldaway: once the tent is no longer under tension, you just need to fold it away in its bag.
The Fresh & Black technology keeps the inside of your tent cooler and darker
Cooler and darker for better sleep!
Fresh & Black is a technology patented by Decathlon that allows us to reflect the sun's rays and insulate from the light thanks to specific materials.
This reduces the sensation of heat in the tent and makes it darker.
To get the most out of this technology, don't forget to ventilate your tent at night!
Recommended tent with a self-inflating mattress or trekking mattress up to 70 cm wide.
We do not recommend using inflatable mattresses, that are more than 8 cm thick, in this tent.
Indeed, this greatly reduces the volume inside the tent and increases condensation inside.
Ventilation of the tent
2 side doors enable maximum ventilation when they are open. Breathable mesh bedroom with mechanical ventilation. So that air can flow and be replaced between the bedroom and the flysheet, and eliminate the natural condensation as much as possible, there is a space between the flysheet and the ground across the entire surface of the tent.
Waterproofing of the tent
All our tents are validated in the laboratory and in the field to guarantee the waterproofing.
To do this, we put the entire tent under a 200 L/h shower for 3 hours.
The flysheet is in 2000mm Schmerber PU-coated polyester, the groundsheet is in 5000mm Schmerber PU-coated polyester and all the seams are taped with heat-sealed strips.
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side to the wind. A properly pitched tent with all the guy ropes properly positioned around the tent should remain habitable in wind speeds of up to 50 km/h measured near ground level (Force 6).
What does my product contain?

Warranty of your tent:
This camping tent was designed for occasional outdoor use (4 weeks per year) during your camping trips or in the countryside.
Continuous exposure to UV light over a period of several weeks can damage its textile part.
Our tents do not belong to the category of "garden furniture" and are not designed to be kept outdoors permanently.
To maximise the lifetime of your tent, it's important to store it properly when it is not being used.
Don't throw away, repair!
Our tents are great for camping at night.
Over time, they age and some parts may wear out or break.
To facilitate repairs, we keep a stock of parts (tent poles, flysheets, bedrooms, etc.) so that they can be easily replaced. Don't throw away, repair !
