The Vango Illusion 800xl TC Sun Canopy is perfect for extending the profile of your polycotton tent, as it will add some living space to the front of the tent. The TC Sun Canopy is a polycotton sun canopy, and it will zip onto the front of the tent fully, for a secure seal against the tent. Quick, and simple to the pitch, the Sun Canopy has one steel pole, and should be unzipped, and laid flat in the event of strong winds.

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.
