Product test
QUECHUA tent waterproofing is approved for the whole tent under 200 litres of water/hour/sqm (200 mm of rain per hour) for 4 hours. The water column test (=mm schmerbers) only measures fabric waterproofing. Our test means we can prevent any water getting through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. Wind resistance: We test all of our tents in a wind tunnel and on a rotating plate to expose each side of the tent to the wind. Tested in real conditions.

Stockage tips
Storage - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

Maintenance tips
1 CLEANING: clean the tent with soapy water if necessary, then rinse (with a hose if possible). Dry completely before storage. 2 SAP STAINS: very difficult to clean: once dry, gently scratch the stain. Rubbing an ice cube on the underside will make it brittle, making it easier to remove. 3 STORAGE: after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould from forming.

great for a longer holiday
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Good size comfortable tent for 2 adults. Easy to put up and certainly survived light rain. Only two slight negatives: we didn't manage to get it straight (probably incompetence) and would be nice to have a double layered inside door so ventilation can be varied. But for such a cheap tent, very minor complaints. Also difficult to get it back in the bag.
Never A 4 Man Tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This is a good weekend Tent , but as we found with 2 adults and 2 children its never a 4 man . Positive for us it withstood torrential rain and couldn't argue for the price. Do not forget this is a less than £100 tent.
Brilliant little tent
Used for 1 week or less
Bought this as a smaller tent for little dad camping trips with my boys as our family tent is too big for overnight trips. The tent is really good quality and easy to get up, the space inside is great. Used it to test in the garden overnight and we had some heavy rain and hail but were all snug inside. Easily fit for sleeping bags in the bedroom too.

Could have done with the option for a footprint as getting it down on wet grass once the inside is out means it laying on the grass and getting wet inside.

So I'd recommend getting a tarp and laying it under it will make it much easier and cleaner to take down in anything other than totally dry conditions.

So Ive ordered one off eBay :).

Very happy with my new tent :)
Leaky roof
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Decent enough tent until the rain & wind comes then the flap on the roof of the porch lets water in, woke up to a puddle of water in our seating area now we're home going to have to look into stitching the flap over a bit

I was really impressed with my purchase from start to finish. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The tent came when it was supposed to and even though I have not used the tent yet I'm sure it will be of good quality. I would definitely buy from your store again

Excellent service, quickly delivery, brilliant price, we've been looking at these tents or a while after seeing some whilst camping. They're a good height so no stooping, a lovely sized living area and nice size bedroom bit. Defo recommend .

Great tent easy to put up and a really useful living area. We had torrential rain and high winds during our weekend trip and the tent held up really well when people around us were having all sorts of problems with their tents leaking
Fantastic Family Tent

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used this for V festival and a camping trip with our children, was a fantastic purchase and easy to set up!
Great starter tent
Used for More than 1 year
A great tent that we've use for our second season now. Proved sturdy in high winds and horizontal rain. Spacious front, and at 6'2, I can stand up in. It's an ideal size for 2 people. For the price It couldn't be faulted. 2 years of use (about 8 weekends and 2 weeks) and it's only just started to leak. No doubt a little waterproofing will fix that.
Excellent tent for little money. Well worth it
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this tent for my 8 year old son and myself to use for the occasional break.
we came to Scarborough this week. The tent was up and readt to use in under an hour with just me putting it up.( with a little help from my son) The youtube instruction video is the best way to see how it goes, as the instructions on the storagr bag are not upto much.
we have had a lot of rain through the nights and it has stayed bone dry inside.
Today we had a good 2 hour downpour which left most of our site flooded. This tent stayed steomg and again dry inside.
There is loads of space inside for 2 but i feel it may be a bit tight as a 4 person tent.
looking forward to our next outing
