Pitching and striking the tent
The tent is free-standing: you can place it wherever you want once it has been deployed in order to choose the best location.
When there is no wind, you do not have to anchor it with tent pegs.
This tent is easy to fold away using the guiding system.
Recommended tent with a self-inflating mattress or trekking mattress up to 60 cm wide.
We do not recommend using inflatable mattresses, that are more than 6 cm thick, in this tent.
Indeed, this greatly reduces the volume inside the tent and increases condensation inside.
Ventilation of the tent
So that air can flow and be replaced between the bedroom and the flysheet, and eliminate the natural condensation as much as possible, the tent has 1 air vent at the top.
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 made of 2000mm Schmerber PU-coated polyester and the groundsheet is made of 120g/m² polyethylene. All the seams are sealed with thermobonded tape.
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 !
Product design: our expertise
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location is a place where our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc.) can meet with outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A significant advantage for designing high-quality products and giving you access to all our expertise.
Where do our tents come from?
Created in our international design centre at the foot of the Mont Blanc in France, this tent is then manufactured and assembled by our suppliers in China, Vietnam and Bangladesh.
These are partners that have genuine expertise in making our tents and with whom we are in close collaboration.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our partner laboratories, as well as our own, contribute to the innovation and development of our Quechua tents.
Extensive analysis and experience allow us to guarantee the technical nature of these products (wind resistance, waterproofing, durability).
To meet your requirements, Quechua tents are tested in the conditions that you may encounter during your nights in camping or in the wilderness.
Our teams, plus a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test products throughout their development until they go to market.
This allows us to guarantee a high-quality tent.
REPAIRS: All our tents can be repaired in the workshop of your local Decathlon store.
