Makes me want to live in this tent! Perfect!

Compact, easy to assemble, comfortable, highly recommend!

Good tent, but there are some flaws.

The tent is good overall, worth the money. Pros: FRESH & BLACK technology Quality of manufacture in general Metal arcs Materials of manufacture Cons: The inner size of the tent is 170 cm instead of the promised 180. 3 60 cm mats do not fit, you will have to cut one. (well, at least I didn’t have time to buy self-inflating ones) There is no fastener on one of the entrances of the inner tent to fix the door in the open position (the door weighs, the question is that the children will tear it off is a matter of time) The quality of the seams in some places leaves much to be desired (looks like cheap China, but I think it will not affect the quality) Otherwise, the tent is excellent, among competitors in the price range, in my opinion this is the best option.

Super spacious comfortable tent...

Good night

very good hiking tent the fresch & black and a very good invention less light in the morning in the tent bought as part of the hiking bike a small problem nevertheless on the total weight 1kg less would have been great but overall very good product

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!


Very well made. It met my expectations. I recommend .

We take it as much...

We take it both camping and wild! However my dog tore it in a very short time... but we are comfortable in it with 2 children and 2 adults and the dog has our feet

Disappointed the hoops are too long to mount it..

I bought this tent recently and trying to put it up I realized that it was almost impossible to fit the end of the poles in the ends to put it up and stretch it properly because they are a few centimeters too long ... I think of a defect and will bring it back to the store to find out if the after-sales service Can do something? Thank you decathlon for informing me about this.

problems encountered

I bought this tent because I left for 3 weeks on a bike trip in Europe. From the first days, an arch of the frame was split in two, then a second the next day. In the tent bag there are two protective bandages for the broken poles which allowed me to hold the mount. Unfortunately a third broke just after. I found myself with a tent that no longer held up after 9 days of travelling, I had paid the price for it on purpose to have maximum comfort. the broken poles pierced the roof of the tent and also the storage bag... I am very disappointed with this purchase and it put me in a lot of trouble during my trip (I didn't have the budget to buy another). As for insulation and impermeability, I have nothing to say about it, it is very good, we have experienced several heavy rains! What compensation does decathlon provide in this case?

Top, too bad he...

Top, too bad there is no double closing of the doors, mosquito net plus another wall. Black nickel effect, fresh ok effect.

fresh and black on top

remained cool despite the heat of this summer, which was always very dark even at 9 a.m. with rays of the sun

For 2 people

The tent is suitable for two people, I don't think three people are possible. There was a violent thunderstorm the first time I used it. Tent stayed stable and dry. You can be happy with that. But there was one fly in the ointment for me. The zipper for the entrance was not neatly sewn and therefore torn. I returned the tent today and will get it again. We also recommend the hammer to hammer in and remove the pegs and a tent footprint.

Quick and easy assembly...

Easy and quick assembly, ideal for 2 people only. The darkness in the tent is total and it is well ventilated. It takes up little space to put on a motorcycle. to house the 2 entrances are too small and water tends to get inside. It's a shame, it would have needed 30 cm more canvas for this tent to be perfect.

Delivered dirty and broken

Luckily for me, I wanted to set up the tent for a test before the holiday. I was appalled when I opened it. It wasn't just the tent and especially the ground sheet that was completely dirty. No, one rod was also broken and the other completely bent. What kind of quality control is it when a return is simply sent back without being checked? Imagine if I hadn't found out until I was on vacation that the tent was broken... The tent will of course be returned immediately. I still have to think twice about ordering something from Decathlon again. The woman on the hotline didn't seem particularly surprised.

In my opinion great!

Small when packed, it fits on a standard bicycle rack, it is easy and quick to unfold and fold, and thanks to the fresh&black flysheet I was able to sleep much longer than my colleagues sleeping in ordinary tents; it is really dark inside and much cooler than in ordinary tents; it is worth, and maybe even necessary, to pay extra for the fresh&black version.

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 guarantee its wind resistance, the tent must be properly pitched, taut but not stretched, with all the guy ropes in position around the tent. It should remain habitable at wind speeds of 45 mph, measured near ground level.

Ventilation and condensation prevention

Bedroom with mosquito net sections for ventilation and water-repellent fabric sections to protect from condensation and drafts. Large vent at the front of the tent’s flysheet and ventilation at the bottom.To limit condensation inside your tent, it must be correctly pitched, the canvas stretched out, but not excessively so. The use of ventilation and good air circulation limits humidity inside your tent.
