Quechua/decathlon T2 ultralite pro

Has anyone any experience of this tent. looks cracking value for money but would prefer to hear that from someone who's owned one before i go out and get one.

Thanks.

My daughter has the 3 man version.  I think it is very good for the price, one of here friends tore the door a little through not opening the zip fully (how many times do they need to be told!) which I repaired myself.  Other than that it has done several trips including some pretty heavy rain without problems.

Just back from a comping trip in France, hordes of em in use, but the weather we experienced only enabled testing of mosquito repellence and shading

Having just bought one of these tents i realised theres no HH rating, just says 450ltr per hr per sq mtr which sounds like a hell of a lot of water, but........................

Anyone know how to work out the equivalent HH.

Thanks.

Not sure on the HH, but I reckon its probably around 3500/4000mm.

Let me know how you get on with it, a friend is thinking of buying one, so any feedback appreciated

Do you think he has time to think about it at that price.?

I was there first thing saturday after moggy alerted me.

The sheffield store only had 4 in stock and hadn't  put the sale price on show, when i asked about the price and it was confirmed by an assistant a guy "earwigging" immediatley went and got one off the shelf too.

It seems to pitch a little "flappy" along the sides but kept me dry in the wind and rain last night.

Maybe i just need a little more practise pitching it but anyway for 50 quid if it lasts me a year i wont complain, i'm sure it will last much longer if not exposed to silly weather.
