Dear Customers and Users,You will be pleased with your Fresh&Black tent owing to the freshness and darkness it provides.You may have noticed small holes on the tent canvas. This is not a product fault. Simply, a waterproof white seam line, used to assemble the panels of the lined canvas of your tent.To guarantee tent waterproofing, this seam line is covered with a watertight, heat-bonded and translucent strip which allows the light to pass through the small holes of the seam.The Black component which provides darkness is not completely uniform, so some tiny spots of light can be seen. This does not affect the waterproofing nor the overall tent obscurity (confirmed with laboratory tests).Jean-Baptiste Bonnafous, Product Manager
Having used this for UK camping at easter, while well made, it is very cold and I think more useful for summer camping abroad which is perhaps why the description mention the advantages with ventilation so much. It is well ventilated in that the mesh lets the air straight into the tent so you can feel a breeze at night so perhaps not for the UK easter camping ! Apart from that a doddle to setup and not hard to take down but practise a few times before going.
I own several tents which I bring for car camping. This is the only tent that allowed me to really sleep and rest well due to its black internal fabric and relax comfortably due to the great airflow provided by the windows and other openings. I'm a light sleeper. But because of the black fabric material, I start to doze off in minutes! The tent withstood strong winds and rain while I camped in Tagaytay. I'm very happy I purchased this tent and I do plan to check out other Quechua Fresh & Black tent models.
Btw, it was easy for me to set it up and fold up afterwards. Of course, I practiced at home before going on my first camping trip with this particular tent. Really great tent and worth the price!
We used this tent traveling through Europe in summer. Fabulous with white exterior reflects heat & dark inside so can sleep! Also ventilates four directions so doesn’t get stuffy. Not good in rain though as no cover over entrance. Super easy and quick to put up and also easy to pack up as different colored clips reduce confusion!!
We love this tent and bought one on line when we returned to Australia. Highly recommend :)
I'm a user of Quechua tents for years, I found a good progress of easier folding.
It got much easier than older model.
Good ventilation, durable to heavy wind and rain.
Great buy for the price.
Brilliant service and a brilliant tent!!
This tent can only be used as a car camping tent as it does not pack down like a normal tent, instead it packs down a meter wide circular pack.
NOWHERE on the webpage is this stated and so the tent is completely useless to me as a backpack hiker.
I have contacted decathalon several times to complain about this and all I receive is an automated response about returning it to a store. This is impossible as I do not drive, live miles from a store and the tent only has a single carry handle. So my options are spend a few hours travelling to a store or spend £15 on return postage simply because decathlon did not make it clear that this is not a backpacking tent.
Extremely unhappy with decathalon's customer service. Most of my camping stuff comes from decathalon but I will not be using them at all in the future or recommending them to fellow campers
Not bad easy to set up and pack up
