Architecture, tent poles and tent pegs

Aluminium poles 7001 Ø 10.5 mm.
Durable lightweight aluminium.
Tent pegs/stakes:
Length 17 cm, Ø 6.1 mm.
Non-anodised 7075 aluminium for maximum strength and lightness while lowering the environmental impact.
The 3 poles form a non self-standing tunnel. This structure forms a very light and hardwearing tent that needs to be fixed to the ground and does not stay up alone.


Extremely quick pitching/striking. The flysheet and bedroom are pre-assembled. Then insert the tent poles in the sleeves provided on the flysheet. It is also quick to strike.
To store the tent in its bag, just fold up the tent until it is as wide as the back, fold up the tent poles into a bundle and place them on the bedroom or the flysheet, and roll everything up into a small bundle that will fit in the bag.


Forclaz tents are tested in the laboratory: pitched tent, 200 L/sqm/h (4 hours, ie equivalent to a tropical shower). They are also tested by a panel of users in the field.
75 denier polyester flysheet, polyurethane-coated (interior) water-repellent treatment (exterior), P75D groundsheet in the bedroom.
Seams taped with heat-sealed strips.
Multi-component bedroom (P66D) that is breathable, provides protection from the wind and reduces condensation.

Wind resistance

We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a rotating platform where we can expose each side of the tent to the wind.
To test its wind resistance, the tent must be properly pitched, taut but not stretched, with all the guy ropes in position around the tent. It will remain habitable at wind speeds of 70km/h, measured near ground level.
Our tents are certified by the independent CSTB laboratory in Nantes.

Ventilation and condensation prevention

Bedroom with mosquito screen for ventilation and water-repellent fabric to protect from condensation and draughts. Large vent at front of tent and additional vent at feet end.
To reduce condensation inside your tent, it must be properly pitched, with the fabric kept taut without being over-stretched. Vents and good air flow will help reduce humidity inside your tent.
The back of the flysheet lifts up for better ventilation.


3 season tent: your tent will protect you from the harsh weather conditions you can encounter in the spring, summer or autumn. It will withstand light snowfall but is not designed to withstand heavy loads that would weigh on the structure.
In case of snow, remember to shake your tent regularly in order to bring down any snow that has accumulated to avoid putting too much weight on the structure of your tent.

Eco-designed tent

We have chosen to use a "biton" weave for some of this tent's fabric.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce the impact on the environment, we use only one mass-dyed yarn out of every two, and thus reduce our consumption and our impact on water.

Tent eco-design (continued)

The tent pegs are not anodised. We have stopped using nitric and phosphoric acids to fix the colour because its only function is to make them look aesthetically pleasing.
Your tent pegs can have an "untreated" or "used" appearance but they retain all their technical characteristics and strength.
These actions help to reduce the environmental impact of your product.

Repairs and After-sales service

As designers and users who love our field, we care about the durability of our products, which is why all our tents are designed to be repairable.
You will find spare parts (poles, bedrooms, etc) in store or in your Decathlon store's workshop, on our website or via e-mail
In the event of a problem, you can have your tent inspected in your Decathlon store.

Our commitments

This tent has been tested and validated in the field in real-life conditions. It was worn for 5 weeks by several people who went trekking in the Canary Islands for 2 weeks, followed by 3 weeks on the GR10 trails in the Pyrenees.
Test Product The waterproof rating of the Forclaz tents is validated by placing a pitched tent under 200 L/sqm/h shower of water (tropical rain) for 4 hours, and checking that no water passes through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. The water column test (= mm Schmerber) measures the waterproof rating of the fabric. We test all our tents in a wind tunnel, on a rotating table to check all four sides. We also perform tests on the components (abrasion, tearing, perforation, etc).
Guarantee : 5 years. All our tents are repairable. Parts and information in store or on our website
