  • Flysheet and inner pitch together making it simple and quick to pitch and pack 
  • The Vango patented TBS II – Tension Band System ensures that your tent performs in adverse conditions, especially strong, changeable winds. In calm conditions the system can be disconnected if desired. When tensioned, the bands brace the pole and prevent sideways movement. The buckles should be adjusted so that slack is removed, but not over tensioned, as this may deform the poles. 
  • The Protex 70 Denier polyester flysheet is a highly waterproof, durable and reliable fabric that will keep you dry and comfortable, and it's exclusive to Vango 
  • All flysheet and groundsheet seams are factory taped, giving a water tight seal 
  • PE groundsheets are robust, hardwearing and waterproof to 10,000mm. Ideal fabric to stand up to the rigours of the most active of campers 
  • Breathable polyester inner tent- the fabric allows condensation to pass through, ensuring a comfortable nights sleep 
  • PE inner tent groundsheet provides a robust, hardwearing and waterproof bathtub style base 
  • The guy lines are attached to the tent at optimum positions for stability and tension. 
  • All poles are identical, for ease of pitching. • Conveniently positioned inner tent pockets store snacks, torches or electronics 
  • Large Diamond Clear PVC windows for maximum light and great visibility 
  • All Vango tents use fully fire retardant fabrics that meet the European EN5912 safety standard which will give you and your family peace of mind 
  • We weather test each of our tents to the European standard EN5912, in a certified wind and rain test centre. This is to prove the tent can perform to advertised standards. 
  • Vango AirZone- High and low level ventilation panels combine to create a comfortable flow of air through the tent
  • One doorway has a mesh door - which can be left open to allow extra ventilation
