The waterproofing of Quechua tents is tested by placing a pitched tent under a 200 L/m²/hr shower (tropical rain) for 4 hours and checking that no water gets through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. The water column test (=mm schmerbers) measures the waterproofing of the fabric. Wind resistance: tents are pitched in a wind tunnel on a rotating platform to expose each side of the tent to the wind. We also carry out numerous field tests in real-life conditions.
Storage: after use or cleaning, wait until the tent is perfectly dry before putting it away in order to avoid bad smells and mould.
1 CLEANING - if needed, clean the tent with soapy water and rinse (with a hose if possible). Then dry thoroughly. 2 RESIN STAIN - ...very difficult to remove: once dry, scrape it off (delicately) by putting an ice cube on the inside to make it brittle and detach it more easily. 3 STORAGE - after use or cleaning, do not store your tent until it is perfectly dry to prevent odours and mould forming.
