This Vango Windbreak 5-pole (designed in Sky Blue colour) is a new windbreak for 2017, with the matching colour of the Exclusive range of tents, such as the Rivendale, Edoras, Hayward and Claremont tent collections. The Vango windbreak is simple to erect, with 5 steel poles, which collapse down when not in use, for a smaller pack size, making the windbreak far more portable. The windbreak is also fully waterproof, and will provide an adequate method of sheltering from wind and rain.

Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.
