Technical information

Polycotton care

As part of the tent is cotton, the fabric must be absolutely dry before storing to avoid mildew. It is also important to keep the fabric clean and to deal with stains as quickly as possible. It is advised to wipe away dust with a soft brush.DO NOT KEEP IN A DAMP LOCATION.

Benefits of Polycotton or Technical Cotton

The Polycotton, also known as Technical Cotton, has the following benefits:
- better resistance to UV
light - better breathability than a traditional polyester tent
- a longer lifespan
- a more lightweight tent than a 100%-cotton tent
- A more pleasant living environment, in terms of sound reduction, for instance
Still, remain vigilent because Polycotton is a fabric that requires special attention when drying and when cleaning off stains.

Bedroom and living room

6.8 m² living room with a max headroom of 2.15m.
This tent is equipped with the following:
- 2 bedrooms (140x210cm) or one large bedroom (280x210cm)
with "Easy & Quiet" magnetic doors
- Zipped bathtub groundsheet at the entrances in case of rain
- A transparent window with a flap
- A mosquito net window with a flap
- Storage pockets in the bedrooms & in the living room

Sleeping width

Each bedroom in this tent is intended to accommodate a maximum of two 70 cm wide mattresses.The partition wall between the 2 bedrooms can be removed to form a large bedroom.

Pitching and dismantling

Inflatable all-in-one structure with pre-assembled bedrooms and flysheet.
Using our Quechua 5.2 litre red pump with built-in pressure gauge, we recommend that you inflate the tubes to 7 PSI of pressure.
Pump not included.
To view this pump, copy the reference 8243066 and paste it into the search engine of our website.We recommend that 2 people pitch the tent.

Sun protection

Our Polycotton technology relies on a fabric with UPF 50+ sun protection.
be careful, as a large amount of UV rays can get in through a simple open door.


Living room: The ventilated flysheet on the living room enables air to circulate and reduces condensation inside your tent. The living room has two mosquito nets, one at the top of the front door and the other at the side of the living room.
Bedroom: There is an upper air vent outside the two rear bedrooms. Inside, there is a lower ventilation hatch on each side.
The bedrooms have mosquito nets on the top section of the doors.

Wind resistant

We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable. The aim is to expose each side of our tent to the same wind intensity.
Properly pitched (minimum 7 PSI inflation), with the guy ropes deployed, this tent remains habitable in wind speed 8, measured at 70 km/h.

Feel free to re-inflate your inflatable poles regularly during your stay at the campsite (minimum 7 PSI).

Waterproof and taped seams

We test our tents to validate their waterproofing. The first test is done in the laboratory, 3 hours under 200 litres of water per hour per sqm, the equivalent of tropical rain of 200 mm per hour. The second test is done in the field under real-life conditions by our teams. This tent is fitted with a polycotton flysheet. It has a 195 g/sqm waterproof groundsheet. (groundsheet: 5000 Schmerbers).

To guarantee maximum durability of your tent, it's important to store it in a dry place when not in use.
