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!
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.
Easy to put up - well made - a bargain
Great tent - really spacious, easy to put up and take down and to top it all off a great price!
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.
The truth is have not used it I hope to leave very soon on holidays but it sure is very practical.
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.
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
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
It is also written under "technical information" that the weight is 3,2 kg.
But on another picture (link is below) of the product, it is shown that the tent is 3,1 kg
However, my friend told me that his tent is written on it that it is 3,4 kg
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
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!

The review might go a little long. I was looking for a four person tent for my hikes but during my visit to Decathlon, this one was available. We were three on a trek to Lam Dal Lake in mighty Dhauladhar mountain range located in the Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh (India). As we were already with heavy rucksacks, so we decided to distribute the tent among all three by dividing outer, inner & sticks. As the claimed weight of this tent is 3kg, therefore for a single person, it was not that easy to carry it with that amount of baggage. In first day of our trek, the tent remained un-opened as we got shelter somewhere. Next day our trek was through Gaj Pass and then to Lam Dal Lake but we were caught in heavy rain and it took 4 hours to stop. After then we resumed out trek and crossed the pass in dark at 09:30 PM. Due to dark, it was not so easy to find out the way and wandering here and there, we reached at 11:30 PM beside the lake. We pitched the tent for first time and as we entered in, the rain started and in 5-10 minutes, it turned heavy. The tent was sufficient for three with respective baggage. I was worried about the rain, as tent was pitched on a little tilted ground. My companion friend asked me, “is it able to face such rain and will it keep us safe?” I replied, “let us see the result”. As we were too tired, soon we were in deep sleep. In the morning when we woke up, the rain was stopped and it was all fine inside. We slept well and everything inside was almost dry (95%). We packed everything and moved on to Kareri lake via Minkiani Pass which is next to Gaj Pass in the same mountain range. After reaching Kareri lake, we pitched it again and everything was good but during midnight, heavy rain started again. But this time I was quite confident about the capability of tent. Next morning everything was good. You just need to make it little dry before packing it. Don’t pack it in wet condition. Next morning, the Sun welcomed us and we got sufficient time to make it dry under Sun. We removed the outer and gently placed it on a dry boulder and left the inner in assembled position under heat of Sun. After a while it was dry enough to pack. Overall, it is a good, reliable and I must say “tough” product. In some cases, it is even sufficient for four person. But in such condition, the baggage needs to be placed wisely.
