Bought this tent last year i am new to camping, i searched the net before purchasing and found myself keep coming back to decathlon. We put this tent up in gale force winds in sept last year. It was solid didnt budge at all and it stayed dry. The flappy bit was really good rather than keep stepping over. 2 adults and 2 kids it was cramped with the kitchen and clothes but the darkness was amazing im like a vampire. We have since purchased the 10 person gazebo to put the kitchen and table and chairs in. The second time we used was the beginning of oct it was so rainy the banks nearly burst on the site we were. So this tent has been put through its paces. Would definitely recommend.
Having been a long time purchaser of Decathlon products, and camping since I was a child, I had every faith this tent would be great.
After viewing the ‘air’ version in store, (there was none available and camping had gone a bit mad after the first lockdown was lifted) I was assured by two members of staff, this version would be identical in both shape and size, the only difference being the poles instead of the air beams.
The size difference is in fact significant and even for a family of two adults and two very small children it was completely inadequate.
The design it’s self is shocking. The front door was a perpetual nightmare, it didn’t matter how many times we pitched and re-pitched the tent, the front zip would never close. In the end we had to use zip ties to keep it together for the duration of our trip.
Secondly the lack of stitching of the ground sheet was a bizarre design flaw, especially with the side up to allow air in (which believe me is needed in this thing) it basically means your entire tent is open to bugs, dirt and water. The lack of fly sheets on these areas is frankly absurd. Likewise the design at the top, rather than allowing air flow simply provides a place for every bug on the campsite to get trapped and die.
The floor is incredibly poor quality, and despite a pretty good base at the campsite was ripped in two places even with a hard wearing ground sheet down. The ‘fresh and black’ element was absolute rubbish. It was dark, yes, but fresh? Absolutely not. This thing was genuinely the worst tent I’ve been in for condensation and overall heat - it was like being in a sauna and it wasn’t that hot when we went away - around 20 degrees Celsius. Likewise the bedroom (which is again different from the air version) is stitched completely separately from the remainder of the tent, so if you have a carpet to go under the bedroom like we often do for insulation, you can’t use it - neither can you lower it for cleaning. And the middle curtain doesn’t separate, so if you have small kids, you can’t open it into one large bedroom. Literally nothing about this tent works for a small family.
The colour almost attracts the heat and if you’re unlucky to have a hot few days you will literally bake alive. Two of the guy ropes attachments failed on the first day, pegs bent far too easily, and frankly this thing was only good for the bin upon our return home.
Whilst we loved some of our other camping kit from Decathlon, this is something to absolutely avoid and was such a huge disappointment. I’d never purchase a tent from decathlon again sadly. Even when we called from the campsite to ask what we could do about the door, we were basically told to pack it down and return it, thereby ruining our holiday and sacrificing the money we paid. But if we contained to ‘use it it couldn’t be returned’. Really not good enough for such a poor product. Avoid.
New to camping we didn’t want to spend a fortune so after reading reviews decided on this one. We are a family of four , our children are 10 & 11 , the tent has plenty enough space if you are organised, myself and my husband had camp beds which utilises space underneath for storing and the kids had blow up beds .
The tent is very easy to construct , our first attempt took us about 30 mins - next time I’m sure we will have it up in 20. The instructions to put up and take down are very useful.
Luckily the weather was fine so can’t comment on leaking but it’s very well made.
The black out rooms are great and the mosquitos net air vents did their job.
I would definitely recommend this for family’s who are occasional campers.
If we were going to go for any great length of time I may think about getting a bigger one but this did the job perfectly for us.
We love this tent, I can put it up with my 8 year old in 20 mins, the fresh and cool and black out really work.great tent, great price!
An amazing tent at an awesome price and the blackout inside is so cool
