Light. Strong. Dark. Dry

I’ve been backpacking with this tent for over 6 months. It’s the best thing ever. Everybody in SWAGS runs out of there tent as soon as the first sunbeams arrive in the morning. Not me! My hangover and I stay nice and cool(ish) inside the tent up to 2 hours after the others are vaporised. After 6 months of daily take downs en rebuilds, during the Australian summer and winter the tent started to change colour. It aged the sticks turned grey en fabric wrinkled. It didn’t take long before his outer skin shred. Ducked tape saved me from the rain season, but the real hero is Decathlon they provided a new tent and without a doubt I asked for the same one! It’s my babe my precious just buy it. Breaking down after 6 months of camping means you will enjoy it for 24 weeks of camping. Equals 12 year of 2 week vacations! It can be the tent you give to your 12 year old son, and till him he has been made in this! (Washing is not possible) Buy. It.

Great wee tent

I bought this tent for doing the NC500 on my motorbike. Its small and light so suits motorcyclists perfectly. Quick and easy to erect. Black out works great. I experienced strong winds and very heavy rain throughout the night at Applecross and Durness. The tent didn't let in a drop of water. Surprised to be honest how good it handled the Scottish weather.

Great tent

After a long research in order not to spend too much money on a tent, I have bought this one. Proved to be an excellent choice. Price might be a little steep for some, but I think it is worth it. Went for a camping trip for a week into the Lake District. The tent withstood very heavy rain and strong winds. It held up really good. Couldn't be more happy with it. The pegs are super lightweight. Poles are magnetic, very easy to put together. Takes about 10 minutes to put the tent up with an extra pair of hands. The fresh and black feature worked well. Although it gets warm in scorching sun it is very bearable inside. The blackout feature does the job well, might need a torch even in daylight. Ventilation is very good, couldn't spot any condensation inside. Plenty of room for you and your bergen inside, plus more bags. Good storage pockets on the inside, quite useful. Getting out of the tent could prove to be a bit of a bending gymnastics, it is a bit awkward, but no major drama there. A lot of room to leave your boots/shoes outside your sleeping area. Packs up easily too. Overall, if you are considering buying this tent, buy it. Well worth the money.

Brilliant, would recommend

This is a fantastic purchase. Lightweight for carrying when trekking and so easy to put up. Also, taking the tent down and packing it into the bag is really simple too, which overcomes the frustrating part about tents....the bag never being big enough to fit the tent back in! This tent blocks light out so well too, whilst keeping the inside nice and cool. Plenty of space inside and the design enables bags and shoes to be left outside the tent but still under cover.

Cannot be used in cold or wet UK weather

I am a big fan of Decathlons own brand equipment and have been very happy with many of their tents for several years. Unfortunately this tent is unusable in wet and/or cold (10 C or less) conditions as it is sometimes almost impossible to stretch the fabric enough to seat the poles in their tensioning cups. In warm weather this is not a problem and the fabric stretches and getting the poles seated is not a problem. The problem is most acute if you have cold and wet conditions when it is impossible to maintain enough grip on the wet poles to stretch the fabric. The fresh and black fabric does work very well and I like the design of the tent, BUT the difficulty of getting the tent set up means this tent is almost useless. I did report this to the store but they were unable to suggest a remedy.

Not exactly quick!

I had a trial run setting this up in my garden. I found it extremely hard to get the tent poles to fit into the lugs on the opposite side from their entry point. They seemed too long and it took a real effort of pulling the tent and pushing the poles before I could get them to fit. The following week I had to put the tent up in a rain shower. Even harder, especially with wet poles which were very
