Size and weight : Bedroom: 2.25m long x 1.95m wide. 4.6kg.

Bedroom space : Just right for 3 adults, very comfortable for 2.

Storage space (or living space for some tents) : Shoes can be stored inside, between the bedroom and the flysheet. 4 pockets in the bedroom.

Access : Efficient and easy-to-use front entrance: big D door with one zip. No need to climb over your companion to get out.

Pitching/ folding : Instant pitching. Free-standing tent (place it wherever you like after pitching, and if there is no wind, there is no need for pegs = ready to use!). 11 pegs and 4 guy ropes included in case you need them. Folds down in 15 seconds (once you have the "knack" as shown in the instructions and on www.quechua.com).

Waterproofing : Like all Quechua tents, the waterproofing has been particularly well-developed, approved in lab tests (WHOLE TENT in a shower of 200 litres/hr/m2!) and in field tests. (PU coated polyester flysheet, 120g/m² polyethylene groundsheet, thermobonded sealed seams.) A breathable polyester bedroom under the flysheet means you aren't in contact with the condensation that forms naturally on the inside of the flysheet.

Ventilation : Air Cooling System label: 2 side panels on the flysheet can be opened up, allowing air into the bedroom through the mosquito netting (so the bedroom remains protected from insects). These panels can be left open even in the rain, and can be closed from the inside. This means that you get a good night's sleep on even the warmest of nights. It also allows you to safely see what's going on outside.

Poles : Solid fibreglass; highly break resistant.

Pegs : 5mm galvanised steel for excellent twist-resistance.

Cover : Flat disc, 75cm in diameter. Fitted with a no-zip flap, which is more practical, and 2 straps for occasional carrying.

UV protection : Our tent fabrics block over 98% of UVB and 80 to 95% of UVA rays... for those looking for daytime protection, remember that a lot of UV rays can enter through one open door.

Warranty : All our tents are guaranteed for 2 years under normal usage conditions (your invoice or receipt gives proof of purchase date and price). In the event of a problem, have your tent checked out in your local Decathlon store.
