Quechua Camping Tents and Canopies
Quechua is a French company that designs and makes items for use in outdoor pursuits. One particular type of outdoor gear that they make are tents. Available in a range of sizes, Quechua camping tents and canopies are designed with a variety of specific camping situations in mind.
Going on a family camping holiday?
If you're camping with all of the family, you'll need a large tent that can sleep multiple people. Not to mention to fit everyone's luggage in! Quechua tents sleep up to a maximum of eight people. The Arpenaz Family 8.4 XL is ideal for family camping, as it has four bedrooms and an area that can be used as a living room, a dining room, a food prep area or indeed however you choose.
The benefit of a large family tent is that it provides enough space for everyone to relax in. Not a family of eight? Large Quechua tents are available in four, five and six man versions too.
If you want something that's smaller and super easy to put up, then a one to three man tent would be ideal. Smaller and lighter, these tents would be a good option if you were going to a festival.
Camping off the beaten track
For backpacking, trekking or hiking a lightweight tent is essential. When you're covering long distances with all your luggage on your back, the last thing you need is extra weight from the tent. Hiking tents generally have a lower berth and less, if any, living space. Quechua hiking tents are available in two, three and four man sizes.
At the smallest end of the Quechua hiking range, the Quickhiker Ultralight II folds down into a 5 litre carrier and weighs 1.96 kilograms, so there's no need to worry about it taking up lots of space.
Small yet mighty, you've no fear that lightweight Quechua tents mean lightweight protection. All of the sizes of hiking tents available are wind resistant up to 70 kilometres per hour and are waterproof up to 200 millimetres, enough to withstand a tropical rainstorm.
Need a little extra protection?
A shelter is the ideal way to protect yourself from the sun, wind or rain.There are numerous shelters available from Quechua, from sitting shelters for one, to larger canopies accommodating up to six people.
The biggest advantage of these shelters is that they can be erected very quickly, so whether you're on an organised campsite or hiking in the wild, if the weather suddenly turns you can be rest assured that you'll be protected from the elements.
