The Vango Capri 400xl is a deceptively large four berth tent, with the Airbeam system for a 10 minute pitching time.

The Vango Capri 400xl Airbeam tent is ideal for couples or smaller families wanting a standing-height tent, which is very simple and quick to pitch. The 400xl is a new addition to the highly-popular Capri range of tents, and offers more height and living space than the standard Celino 400. Furthermore, the Capri 400xl benefits from the front porch area, as an added living space and extra protection at the front of the tent from the elements. The NEW Sentinel Fabric is designed to last longer, and offer better protection from the elements.

Berth4 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)4000

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 Fabric70 Denier, 4000mm 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.

Window FabricDiamond Clear PVC Windows for great views and excellent lighting
Fire RetardantYes

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.
