With great internal space and a new gothic arch tunnel design, Vango have designed a fantastic new version of the Ark 400 adventure tent for the 2017 season. The Ark 400+ has a spacious front porch area, making it a more expansive tent than the Ark 400. Additionally, the Ark 400+ retains all the best Vango feature - it is a double skin tent that has extra head room, improved stability, full height front windows and a fully sewn in groundsheet making it a comfortable tent for both sleeping and relaxing in. With the use of King poles (sold separately) the front door can be turned into a simple sun porch to create even more space.

Berth 4 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 3000 polyester embossed

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.

Window Fabric PVC Crystal Clear windows with internal covers
