Suitable for those wanting an easy to pitch tent, thanks to the 'pitch as one' system, which sees the entire tent pitched together as the inner tent is pre attached into the flysheet. Another key feature of the Vango Lauder 400 is the front canopy, which provides a little bit of protection from the elements when entering and exiting the tent.

|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||
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.
