6 Reviews of the T6.2

By: Wayne goodman  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2007   Rating: 

A good tent, but to be honest there are better, and offer more value for money than the present price (169,aug 2010) It is ideal for a few days away, but not for 6, unless you are extremely close. The living area is quite small and in wet weather it does tend to rain in under the windows. At present quechua have a T6.3 tent which I think offers a all round better value for money at around 99. And if to compare it is the one I would purchase.

Good for good weather!

This was the first family tent we bought and to be honest we didn't really know enough about what to buy.

It was fine for our first trip away when the nights didn't get too cold and the days were dry. We liked the space in the bedrooms (2 adults and 2 children) and the living area gave us room to cook and eat and the children to play.

Our second trip away was a different experience. The nights were cold and the weather very wet and windy. Not only did the wind and rain blast through the gap at the bottom but the whole thing was in danger of taking off at one point. Luckily we had only booked 2 nights, otherwise we'd have left after that time anyway as I couldn't have taken another cold night in it.

We have now purchased a vango maritsa 700 which we're confident will better suit our needs but are going to keep the quechua because if we decide to go away for an impromptu short break and good weather is pretty much guaranteed it is quicker to put up and perfectly comfortable.

Used this tent twice , I agree with the other reviews this is not a 6 berth as stated although only two of us myself and my son used it , so space was not a problem, I would not recommend for more that a couple of days.

Quite easy to put up and have managed on my own which is a bonus with a tent of this size.The lack of a living area groundsheet was a bonus as any spilt food and drink was not a problem.

Not really big enough for 6 people unless you're very friendly! No groundsheet in the 'living' area so wind and rain liable to come in underneath. No vents to let air in so it became unbearably hot when the sun shone. We went away for four nights and couldn't wait to come home and sleep in an air filled room! I would suggest this would be suitable for a group of friends who aren't too fussed about their sleeping arrangements.

We have had 6 outings in our Quechua T6.2 and until our most recent trip to Skye, we were very pleased with it. It was comfortable for a family of four (six would be very cosy), and the living space is big enough to cook and relax in during inclement weather. However, as we discovered this week, it doesn't cope with strong wind and driving rain. Blustery wind caused rain to blow in through the roof ventilation sheet which was a pain, but bearable. Unfortunately, the tent didn't cope with strong wind, and buckled and eventually began to flatten. We discovered a split pole, and replaced it with the one spare, only to find that 3 more poles has also split. With no let up in the wind, we binned the tent and came home. Overall, a good family tent if the weather is fine - I wouldn't trust one in wind again!

Bought this tent to go on our first camping trip has been on 3 more since then - advertised as 6 berth but bedrooms only sleep 2 people. Living space could be bigger but we have just returned from a rain soaked week in Somerset and tent was warm and dry only for the fact that we added some flashing to the bottom as with the 6.2 xl large gap at the bottom of the tent is not good in the rain! overall good basic tent just make sure you are not on a water logged pitch and definitely not enough living space for 6 people!

Manufacturer's Description

Designed for hikers looking for a 6-person campsite tent with a living area that can be completely opened.

PU-coated polyester flysheet, breathable polyester inner tent, polyethylene groundsheet. 12.7mm diameter fibre poles.

CLEANING: if need be, clean the tent with soapy water then rinse (with a hose if possible). Then dry completely.

RESIN STAINS (very hard to remove): once the stain is dry, gently scratch it off whilst holding an ice cube on the inside of the fabric to make the resin brittle so it will come off more easily.

STORAGE: after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is completely dry to prevent odours and mould formation.

Technical information

Living area
Comfortable, extends from 6 m 9 m under the permanent canopy when the front panel is fully opened (even when raining) -- Light -- 3 big windows (can be screened off) -- Easy access through the front that opens partially -- Permanent canopy = no need to set up the canopy several times a day (rain, outings...)
2 bedrooms that are comfortable for 3 (1.8 x 2.1m) with generous height of 1.85m -- Breathable polyester and low ventilations -- 8 inside pockets + 4 outside pockets in each bedroom.
Like all Quechua tents, the waterproofing has been particularly well-developed, approved in lab tests (WHOLE TENT in a shower of 450 litres/h/m!) and in field tests. PU coated polyester flysheet, thermobonded sealed seams. 140 g/m polyethylene groundsheet.
Ventilation and condensation prevention
Lined living area flysheet (remarkable!) -- Space between ground and flysheet -- Front can be left open even if it is raining.
Excellent stability and durability: 12.7mm fibreglass -- All our fibreglass poles are double-inspected to ensure the best resistance to breakage.
