Lightweight, easy to assemble and STRONG.

Great tent. We bought it at the start of the year and have used in during the hot summer months in France for 2 people. The black out lining kept us cool from the sun with plenty of ventilation points while still stopping the mosquitos from getting in. Now we’re cycle touring with the tent at the end of October and it’s staying pretty warm inside and withstanding the strong winds we’re experiencing at the moment. We find it very easy to assemble/take down between 2 of us. It’s up/down within 5-10 minutes depending on how lazy we’re feeling. All of the interior pockets on the ceiling are great for us to keep organised too. Plus the added drying line has been a blessing to hang up our damp towels and swim suits. Highly recommend!

Quick Hiker 3

A cracking tent, recently used in sub zero temperatures, which in my opinion is a bridge too far, but I can’t wait to use it in the coming months.

Well thiuthoout but poorly executed

I really wanted to like tgit tents and it's such a shame because it's a really nice tent with some really nice touches. It comes with the right amount of nicely turned pegs, the poles are aluminium and it comes with two pole splints in case one breaks, the blackout fabric is nice, there are rain gutters above the doors, there are 8 pockets inside, four high and four low, there's a lantern hook inside and even a little clothesline with 8 different tabs to hang it from. Two main doors and the two low-down vent options inside are great Also, you can pitch it with bedroom and fly, just the fly if it's very warm but raining, or just the bedroom without the fly if it's very warm and not raining. Bad news is that there are only two openings in the poles sleeves, one at each end, the other end is just sealed off to stop the pole and hold it in the right place... then the other end has a plaspla cup to slot the end into. Sounds ok in practice, in reality the fabric is so dense that the friction inside the pole sleeve is very high and because it's sealed at one end it almost creates a vacuum meaning it's very very hard to get the poles in, and even harder to get them out. The plastic cups are cheap and I think they'd split, if you can manage to get the poles seated, which I couldn't. I agree with the previous review that the force required to get the poles seated is inordinate and proved impossible for me, so I returned the tent. It's well thought out but poorly executed and an extra tenner on some proper aluminium seats for the pegs at each end would sort it out

Black, but not so fresh

It's a good lightweight hat with regard to keeping both showers & sun off my face, hence buying a second one. However, Decathlon has let me down due to careless service from the warehouse as this could have been easily avoided. Pros: The tent fabric blocks out light well, as long as the tent flaps are zipped up & the ventilation panels down. It's still darker than other tents when these are open/up. Make sure to take a bright lamp to use in daytime. Small pack size for the internal size of the tent, though it would be crowded for 3 people. The 3 person would be a nice size for 2 with gear. Tent pegs are robust, & pretty. No leaks during rainstorm. Cons: This is the first tent I've ever needed help assembling in 40 years,. I couldn't get the poles in to the tab without an extra pair of hands & lot of force. Tent became hot soon after 9am & by 11am was unbearable by 11am, so unable to sleep during UK heatwave weather. Ventilation won't work unless there's a breeze. Aluminium poles seem robust, though I'm not yet sure whether the inclusion of pole repairs is a good thing, or they are likely to break through the force needed to assemble the tent. Blackout fabric makes the tent heavy for size. Pockets are hard to see in the dark. It's might be a good idea to pitch the tent on a groundsheet to protect the base of the tent which seemed a little thin.
