The Vango Bora 300 tent is a lightweight, small pack size, three berth tent ideal for the warmer climates, or for the British summertime. The Bora utilises a multi-pitching system, allowing the inner tent to be pitched as a stand alone unit. The waterproof flysheet can then be clipped on top in the event of bad weather, ensuring you are protected from the rain. The main advantage the Bora 300 has over other tents, is the amount of mesh ventilation it has, allowing fresh air into the tent, and stopping a build up of condensation. Additionally, the Bora has two opposing doorways, allowing entry / exit from either side of the tent, thus increasing the versatility of the tent.

  • Simple to pitch design
  • 70 Denier, tried and tested Protex Fabric - 5000mm
  • Two Entry / Exit points - adds versatility to the tent
  • Plenty of mesh, for warmer weather systems
  • Inner Can be pitched alone.

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) 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.

Colour No
Doors 2 Doorways - Entry / Exit from either side of the tent
Flysheet Fabric 70 Denier Polyester ProTex Flysheet - 5000mm waterproofing treatment

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 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.
