My son is currently using this tent at a festival in Budapest and says it is fantastic! Has kept him cool in the 30+ degree heat! He also commented that a lot of the other tents there, were the same as his, so they must be good!
The good; The blackout system really works and the outer flysheet stops the tent from getting too hot. It was very easy for me to pitch and pack-up. At this price point it's weight is also reasonable. The bad; I am just over six foot and could not lie flat, unless i did so diagonally, which is completely impractical. With two people and our kit, the tent felt very cramped. For the price it is good value, but I would only use it for myself and not share. As a comfortable one person tent it's ideal for festivals, when the need for a lie in is most appreciated.
Great tent used for 14 day camping trip.1 full day of sun & the tent stayed cool, it rained the rest of the trip & at times it was torrential. This tent withstood the rain & wind no leaks or any other problems. Lovely & dark in the morning so I could get a decent amount of sleep. I would advise getting a tarp which is what I did & it was a good call. There isn't any 'porch' area so the rain would have gone straight into the tent on entering & exiting but my tarp prevented this. If you are guaranteed dry weather no need but if not its worth the extra £20 or £30. The 3 person capacity was fine for me & my equipment. Im not sure Id want to share, even with just one other person as it would be a real squeeze. If you could store your stuff in a car or outside I guess it would be fine for 2 just to sleep in. Great that the tent has the option to open at both ends to let the breeze through & more light in, it was the deciding factor in me opting for the 3 man & not the 2 & also why I didn't get a pop up tent. They seemed very dark & low plus very bulky whereas this is light & compact. Its very simple to put up and to pack away. Great product for amazingly low price.
The sun can beat down on this tent in the morning for a few hours and you will still be cool. Leave the inner doors ( one on each side ) open for ventilation. It's dark in there so not the best place to hang out but great to sleep. Saved me at a couple of hot festivals last year. Amazing
Bought this tent nearly two years ago to use on Scooter rallies, absolutely brilliant, lightweight and cool in the summer. I also purchased the tarp which is a great add on. Extremely happy
I bought two of them last year and used for a month, they are not family tents and I wouldn't say that they 3-man either, unless you are 5foot tall and skinny as a poll :-) personally I love them - they don't take much room in a car big enough for a double air bed and you can easily fit some suitcase as well. We were camping where there was literally no shade but because they are light colour outside they reflect sunlight and stay cool inside, also if you like your sleep they stay practically pitch black inside. Need a good torch if you like to stay up reading. You can't do much more in there. Well I bought third one as 6 of us is going this year :) they are good enough for me!
Bought this for a weekend away at the Lake District. Easy to put up and importantly also take down. The Blackout interior really helps you to get a good nights sleep while the white outer layer reflects the sunlight and keeps you cool. Also has excellent ventilation throughout and easy access doors at either end of the tent. Comes in a compact lightweight bag that you could probably use for hiking also.
Bought it for Glastonbury Festival and it's done its job 100%. Completely waterproof (I stayed on site till Wednesday as I was working as security officer and it was pouring rain for about 15 hrs), it really lowers the temperature when sunny, blacks daylight out in about 80%. Highly recommended. It will be your last purchase. You won't ever think of buying a different tent. Too bad it doesn't come in bigger sizes yet.
I bought this tent for a festival, it was easy to put up and stayed cool and dark even in midday sun. I'm a light sleeper and normally get woken as soon as it gets light but was able to sleep in with this tent. The only downside is that this tent is not much bigger than a double airbed so there was only just enough room for my bags. If there was a version with a porch I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.
It is a wonderful little tent, that comfortably fits in myself and another, as well as our things - however, if you are using this to sleep during the day, you may notice that the bottom of the tent lets in light, thus making it not completely blackout - but on the whole not a problem at all. Difficult to get it back into the small bag too, but not too much of a problem. Would definitely recommend this tent to everyone!!
Really easy to set up. Stayed lovely and cool during the day and didn't get sticky at night.
Had use of one of these tents during take-down of a festival. It was so dark that it required a torch to be used inside the tent, even during the day. "Fresh and dark" is by no means a misleading name. Would I buy one? If it had a porch, without a moments hesitation. In its current form, without a porch, it is not exactly practical for those attending long festivals in potentially muddy locations.
I used this tent for two festivals this summer and absolutely loved the cool and dark which allows you to stay asleep in the mornings or nap in the afternoon. It was also cosy and watertight in the rain and wind. Easy to pitch on your own. I was a bit nervous of the two doors at festivals but it was easy to secure them and great to open both to let the air through and light in during the day. I have the Fresh Tarp which makes a good addition to give an outdoor seating area, together they make a very good lightweight festival set up for one or two for a weekend.
this is a great tent we have the 3 man one as we go back packing this is big enough for both me and my partner and both rucksack to fit comfortably and it is not over heavy to carry takes about 10 minutes to put up. kept us dry and warm in heavy rain and thunderstorms in the new forest.
Classic dome structure: Fit the poles on the inner tent, then attach the flysheet over it.Reverse the process to take it down.
We recommend you use the tent with the self-inflating or trekking mattress measuring 60 cm maximum.We do not recommend the use of inflating mattresses over 6 cm height in this tent due the reduction in living space and resistance to condensation.
1 upper back ventilation, space between the flysheet and the ground all around the tent: to enable air to circulate between the room and the flysheet, to renew the air and limit the natural phenomena of condensation.
All Quechua tents are validated in a laboratory (whole tent under 200 L/sqm/h for 4 hours), as well as in the field.(2000mm PU-coated polyester fly sheet, 120g/sqm polyethylene groundsheet, all seams sealed using thermobonded tape). A breathable polyester inner room under the flysheet means you aren't in contact with the condensation that forms naturally on the inside of the flysheet.
We test all out tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side to the wind. A properly pitched tent with all guy ropes fitted around the tent must remain habitable in wind speeds up to 40 km/h near the ground (Force 5).
