Technical Information

1
Pitching/folding
Classic dome structure: poles fit on the room, then attach the flysheet over it.,. Reverse the process to unpitch.
2
Mattress compatibility
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.
3
Ventilation
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.
4
Waterproofing
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 bedroom under the fly sheet means you aren't in contact with the condensation that forms naturally on the inside of the fly sheet.
5
Resistance to wind
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).

Festival tent
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought tent for my teenage son to take to Reading. He said it was great. Just annoyed he didnt bring it back home with him!
Great Tent, although corner hook snapped!!
Used for 1 week or less
Purchased this tent for my daughters to use in the garden. Quality is very good, with built in ground sheet. However, on first assembly, a corner hook on the top green sheet snapped...…..
Shame really, has dented our opinion of the tent.

Great tent - despite low price
Used for 1 week or less
Great tent - really spacious, easy to put up and take down and to top it all off a great price!
amazing tent
Used for 1 week or less
The only word that describes this tent is AMAZING, easy to setup, large on the inside. I was camping in heavy rain and scary wind and the tent didn't even care. Amazing product, only one suggestion is to add more storage pockets on the inside.
Very practical and weighs nothing.
The truth is have not used it I hope to leave very soon on holidays but it sure is very practical.
Not enough pegs
Used for 1 week or less
The tent was easy enough to set up and kept us dry, however we weren't provided with nearly enough tent pegs. There were only 6 in the bag, which held the poles down and two of the guide ropes. its should state on the website that more are needed as we were at a festival and if our friend hadn't had spare ones we would've been in a pickle.
The tent was big enough for two of us and all of our stuff for a week and was brilliantly waterproof.
When you're at a festival it's very comforting to have two zips on the inside so that you can tie/padlock them together. This tent only had one and this did result in some of my belongings being stolen while I was asleep, I feel if the tent was changed to have two zips then it would be a much safer choice for festival goers.
QUECHUA Camping tent 3 people. Green.
Used for 1 week or less
In terms of value for money.-Excellent. So easy to erect. Took only 4mins from unpacking.
Very well made with strong seems and zips. Over all a quality product that I have no hesitation in recommending.
A great product with good design features
None.
conflictive content
Used for 1 week or less
Hello everybody

I have a very small question for those who bought this product.

In the product page, it is shown that the tent is 3,2 kg
www.decathlon.co.uk/media/832/8322006/big_f0daaa0e67104fdea48f05a4a8ba53e2.jpg

It is also written under "technical information" that the weight is 3,2 kg.
http://www.decathlon.co.uk/arpenaz-3-tent-3-man-green-id_8322006.html#anchor_ComponentProductTechnicalInformation

But on another picture (link is below) of the product, it is shown that the tent is 3,1 kg
www.decathlon.co.uk/media/832/8322006/hd_2208356396a04da091817ef51b4bb421.jpg

However, my friend told me that his tent is written on it that it is 3,4 kg
http://we.tl/fRcsjoGyip

But he also said that when he weights out with & without the tent; he sees 3,2 kg of difference.

I am planning to join a group of hiking people. I couldn't make a decision to buy or not to buy; as, i think, 200 gr gets heavier during the hike.

If you have an "Arpenaz 3 tent" can you please tell me how many kg exactly it is?

Thank you everyone
if it were 3,1kg or 3,2kg
but is 3,4kg
Response of the brand
Dear Sir,
Thank you for asking us about the Quechua Arpenaz 3 backpacking tent. 
You're right about the information. It is confusing. 
The product manager and I have just measured it and the result is the tent is around 3,1 kg.
If you have more comments or feedback just let me know!
Best regards,
