The Ark Plus is a three berth tent, with space for up to three people to sleep in. The Gothic arch provides a solid and reliable tent structure, whilst also giving exceptional head space for an adventure tent.

 Why is it different?

  • Vango have taken the standard Vango Ark tent and added another front pole onto the tent to create a porch area.
  • It has a front and side door - not just two side doors like the Beta Tent
  • Commended in Camping 2014 Awards as "Best Small Tent'
  • New "Lights out" inner tent - allows you to sleep for longer in the morning

Berth 3 Man

Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.

Hydrostatic Head (mm) 3000

Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.

Flysheet Fabric Protex® 70 Denier, 3000mm Polyester Flysheet

Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.

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.

Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.
