Quechua Arpenaz 4 - Man Tent Review

Friday 19 August 2022


I'm going to start off by saying I love this tent. The Quechua Arpenaz 4 Man Tent is from Decathlon and is one of the easiest tents I've ever used and a perfect beginners tent.

Last year I borrow my sister's 3 man pop up Quechua tent (can't remember the exact name of it but it was a limited edition 90s tent) so when buying a tent for our first proper camping season, I knew I wanted a Quechua tent.

The tent itself has a bedroom and a small seated living room area. As with all 4 man tents, you can comfortably fit 3 full sized humans in, but I think you'd struggle with 4. If you have kids, two adults and two small kids would probably fit comfortably. With this tent, there is a fair bit of ventilation with a covered vent above the living room. I also like the window feature which allows you to do a classic bit of people watching, however there is a flap which covers up the window should you want the privacy.

It's a poled tent, so think traditional assembly. There are 3 main poles which are colour coded, and adjustable guy ropes. The tent comes with heaps of pegs, so you'll never be without. It takes roughly 10-15 minutes for the two of us to pitch the tent. We also have never struggled getting the tent back into the bag which is a massive win for me.

The only main issue I have with this tent is that you can't fully stand up, you're always hunched over which can be a little tiring on the back. If you have a table and 2 chairs, you can just about fit in the living area sat down. Another thing to note is there is no ground sheet in the living area.

As for price, it's a really decently priced tent, retailing for £99.99. It is a really good tent and worth every penny.

We recently upgraded to a slightly larger 4 man Quechua tent, which features a stand up living room and fresh and black technology in the bedroom. Watch this space for the review!
