Easy to assemble and very happy with my purchase

Very good.

Nice for 2 or 3 people

Great for 2 small children and 2 adults, but with older children it is much too small. When it blew and rained, everything in the awning got wet. It then rains under the flap. But the sides of the outer tent are also quite high, causing rainwater to flow into the sleeping area. It seemed as if the poles were just too long for the tent width. Easy and quick to set up and also nice that you can stand upright.

serious design errors

The tent is poorly designed and made: it has no net in the bedroom, no side ventilation, only a small slit in the back which is ineffective. You can't stay in this tent during the day, you actually suffocate if you close the door or leave it open and all the flies and mosquitoes come in....

Great tent for weekend trips

We used the tent for a weekend and are generally very satisfied. I was just a little disappointed that after a short time, water started to come in at two places during a rain shower: it dripped in from a loop on the "window" with mosquito net in the awning and water collected in a corner of the sleeping area - and not a little bit. Unfortunately, the air mattress and pillows were soaking wet. Luckily, we had a sponge and bucket with us to get the water out and catch the dripping spot. Conclusion: great for sunny short trips, but it's better not to rain.

fantastic tent

super comfortable tent, I wanted a tent that would allow me to sleep longer and not wake up because it was too hot, and this tent was an excellent choice!

Excellent tent, quick and easy assembly. I would recommend immediately buying 2 rods and a string to raise and fix the entrance plane, turning it into a canopy. They are not included in the package, but are marked in the instructions as an additional option. Fresh&Black technology is really a great thing that allows everyone to sleep in the morning. Definitely recommend for purchase.

Living room and bedroom

53.8 ft² living room with an inner tent height of 74.8 Inch.This tent has several features:- Liftable floor mat at the entrance in case of rain- Transparent window with shutterThe chamber of this tent is designed to accommodate a maximum of 4 24 Inch-wide mattresses. It can also accommodate a couple looking for a very large bedroom.

Pitching and dismantling

All-in-one frame structure with pre-assembled bedroom and flysheet. The 3 colored poles are to be inserted into their respective sleeves. Then make taut by positioning the poles in the black end pieces located below the flysheet. Drive in the V-shaped pegs at the 2 back corners, then pull the tent forward. Then drive in the pegs at the 2 front corners.We recommend that 2 people pitch the tent.

Sun protection

Our Fresh & Black technology relies on a UPF 50+ sun protection fabric.Caution: Be careful, as a large amount of UV rays can get in through a simple open door.


The ventilated flysheet on the living area airs the room and reduces condensation inside your tent. High ventilation hatches are placed at the front and rear of the tent. There is a mosquito net at the back of the bedroom.

Wind resistance

We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable. The aim is to expose each side of our tent to the same wind intensity.Properly pitched, with the guy ropes deployed, this tent remains habitable in wind speed 6, measured at 30 mph.

Waterproof and taped seams

We test our tents to validate their waterproofing. The 1st test is done in the laboratory under 200 L/m²/h of water for 3 hours, which is equivalent to a tropical shower of 200 mm per hour. The 2nd test is done in the field under real-life conditions by our teams. This tent is fitted with a polyurethane-coated polyester flysheet measuring 2,000 mm. It also has seams that have been waterproofed with heat-sealed strips, and a 4.9 oz/m² polyethylene groundsheet.

The fresh & black technology keeps the inside of your tent cooler and darker

Cooler and darker for better sleep!Fresh & Black is a technology patented by Decathlon that allows us to reflect the sun's rays and insulate from the light using specific materials.This reduces the sensation of heat in the tent and makes it darker.For maximum enjoyment


As designers and users who love nature, we care about the durability of our products. That's why all our tents are designed to be repairable. Spare parts and repairs for inflatable hoops are available at the workshop of your Decathlon store or on our website.

Poles and tent pegs

Poles - All our poles are made from fiberglass and undergo double quality checks. This guarantees some of the best resistance against breakage.Tent pegs - All our pegs are made of steel and have a diameter of 6 mm.

Product testing

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).

Storage instructions

We advise that you air-dry your tent outside, including the underside. You can then store it without any risk of odors or mold developing.
