A classic tent turned modern, the Vango Diablo 1200xl was highly popular back in the early noughties - falling out of favour to the quicker pitching designs. However, the Diablo returns to the range for 2017, with the innovating Airbeam inflation system, which will allow the tent to be pitched within 15 minutes. The beauty of the Diablo is the exceptional living space it offers, coupled with three separate sleeping compartments, making the tent highly versatile to the growing family's needs. Furthermore, the Diablo 1200xl now features the 150 denier fabric, enhancing the lifetime of the tent, and offering added protection from the elements.

  • 150 Denier Tent Fabric - 5000mm
  • Quick-pitching Airbeam System
  • Classic design - tried and tested

Berth 8 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 Sky Blue
Doors 1 Front Door, 1 Side Door and 1 Rear Door (can only be used when rear sleeping pod removed)
Flysheet Fabric Protex 150 Denier, Polyester fabric waterproof to 5000mm

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.

Inner Fabric Breathable polyester inner tent, with low level vents, and zipped dividers
Window Fabric Diamond Clear PVC windows with zipped privacy curtains / Roof panel windows

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.
