First adventures: Our advice

What should I check before leaving?

To avoid any unpleasant surprises when you get to pitch your tent, it's a good idea to carry out a few checks so you can set off with peace of mind.

- Take your tent out of its bag to air it and reduce any bad odours, and clean it if necessary (see our maintenance advice below).
- Check the condition of your equipment: make sure that a tent pole ring isn't broken, that the guy ropes aren’t showing any defects, that you aren’t missing any pegs, etc.
- Inspect the fabric and groundsheet to check that there are no holes
- Check the condition of the zips to make sure they are working correctly

Where to pitch my tent?

Before pitching your tent, it is essential to choose an appropriate spot. So, we have listed some tips to help you find the perfect spot :

- Look for a flat and relatively clear ground (no stones, branches ...) to sleep well and not damage your tent
- Avoid pitching too close to a water point for many reasons: humidity, insects, possible rising water…
- Limit exposure to the wind so that it doesn't shake too much and opt for a relatively sheltered location such as undergrowth for example. Always place the entrance of your tent with your back to the wind
- Pitch in a place where the sun shines in the morning so as not to be cold in cool temperatures.

How weather resistant is my tent?

All our tents are tested in a laboratory to validate their waterproofness: a first test is carried out for 3 hours under 200 L of water per hour and per square met. The second test is carried out in real conditions by our experts.

As far as wind resistance is concerned, our tents are also tested in a wind tunnel on a turntable.

To see the specific characteristics of your tent model, please consult the product sheets available on the Decathlon website.

What is the Fresh & Black technology?

More freshness and darkness to sleep better! Fresh & Black is a technology patented by Decathlon which allows the sun's rays to reflect and isolate light using specific materials. Therefore, we reduce the feeling of heat in your tent. To make the most of this technology, don't forget to ventilate your tent in the evening!

How to prevent condensation?

Recurring rain throughout the day, hot air that persists when the outside temperature drops, body heat… these are factors that can create condensation inside your tent. To avoid this phenomenon, here's some advice:

- Open the vents of your tent as much as possible, even when it's raining
- Avoid any creases when pitching your tent, as these favour the concentration of water drops
- Do not pitch your tent too close to a water point but rather in a sheltered place where temperature and humidity are regulated.

To remove the condensation already present, gently wipe off the droplets with a cloth and ventilate your tent as much as possible. Open the door until it can dry out.

Looking after my 2 Seconds Tent

Using it correctly

Before pitching your tent, leave the front door closed to avoid stretching the canvas too much when you pitch the poles. Do not tighten the guy ropes too much because too much tension on the canvas could damage it. Finally, do not leave the tent too exposed to the sun because UV light causes premature wear.

Cleaning

Do not use any cleaning products to wash your tent, but rather plain or soapy water if necessary. Make sure you rinse it well when you've finished.

Drying

It is important to dry your tent well after cleaning it to avoid traces of mildew. If you have room at home, assemble it completely, open all the doors so that it dries quicker. If, on the contrary, you run out of space, detach the pieces one by one and extend them.
Finally, remember to dry the cover as well.

Storing

Store your tent in a dry place at room temperature. Remember to close the front door to prevent your tent from being too tight when you put it up again.

Restoring the waterproof properties

Several factors can affect the waterproofness level of your tent, such as exposure to the sun, friction inside the cover or even natural wear.
Therefore, we advise you to apply a waterproofing spray on the canvas at least once a year.

A RIP HAS FORMED IN MY FLYSHEET

You just need to apply a patch or adhesive to fill the hole. We recommend that you apply them on the inside of your flysheet or your bedroom for better adhesion.
