Approximate dimension: 400 x 240cm

The Floorplan of the Icarus 400 tent measures 420 x 260cm so the footprint will be designed a little smaller to allow rainwater to fall onto the ground.

The Vango tent footprints are designed for the protection of your tent groundsheet and are designed specifically for each Vango model of tent covering the living area of the tent perfectly. The benefits of a footprint are:

  • Helps mark out a clear position for erecting the tent
  • Ensures the tent is kept cleaner when pitching the tent
  • Provides additional insulation and waterproofing from damp that can rise upwards from the ground
  • Ideal for fully sewn-in groundsheets as they are protected from rough surfaces, stones, etc which will in turn prolong the life of the tent
  • Helps to keep the main tent cleaner when packing down as without the footprint, the tent will be wrapped up wet and muddy. Unfortunately this is the perfect breeding ground for mould, which totally ruins further use and enjoyment from your tent
  • They can be wrapped up relatively small and then cleaned down and dried when you get home from your camping holiday
  • Packaged in a carry bag for neat, compact storage until your next camping holiday

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.
