Berth3 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)5000

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 FabricProtex HC 5000 polyester flysheet - 70 Denier 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.

Groundsheet FabricPolyester 6000HH inner groundsheet (lightweight fabric)
Inner FabricBreathable fabric inner tent reduces the condensation within the tent
Fire RetardantNo

Fire Retardant – all modern tent fabrics are fire-retardant under EN5912 European Safety Laws. Caution with fire must always be used, as flame retardant fabrics, will still catch fire given the right circumstances.

  • Flysheet and inner as one to save time, and making the tent easier to pitch.
  • The Vango patented TBS II – the Tension Band System ensures the tent structure remains stable and reliable in the event of wind, as you can use the straps to tie down the tent frame.
  • The Protex 70 Denier polyester flysheet - tried and tested Vango fabrics are used across all backpacking tents.
  • All flysheet and groundsheet seams are factory taped, giving a water tight seal, ensuring you stay warm and dry.
  • 70 denier lightweight polyester groundsheet is the perfect blend of waterproofness, durability and reliability whilst keeping the weight of the tent down.
  • Doors are constructed so that rain will not drop into the inner when opened, adding to the intelligence of the tent design, and ensuring the interior of the tent stays dry.
  • Twin flysheet doors gives you the option of having a porch for access and one for storage, or allows easier access for two or more occupants - especially if you wake up in the night needing a wee, you don't need to wake the person next to you to get out of the tent!
  • The constant curve of the inner doors enables the door to be opened in one movement, using one hand. The door has a mesh panel in the upper half for extra ventilation, which in turn, reduces the condensation on warmer nights.
  • Compression stuffsac for easy pack-and-go, with the new easy pack bag system to ensure the tent goes back in the bag.
  • Flysheet door can be opened to ventilate the porch area of the tent by opening the door from the top with the second zip runner 
  • Breathable polyester inner tent- the fabric allows condensation to pass through, ensuring a comfortable nights sleep 
  • Vango PowerLite 7001-T6 alloy poles are lightweight, compact and durable poles for added stability.
  • The guy lines are attached to the tent at optimum positions for stability and tension. 
  • Reflective orange guylines - easy to see even in low light conditions, making it easier to spot the tent in the dark, and ideal for not tripping over.
  • Colour Coded Poles for more intuitive & speedy pitching.
  • By incorporating a pre-angled section into the pole more internal space is achieved than with a standard arch.
  • Independently tested according to EU standards at a certified test centre to EN5912.
