The Vango Opera 400 represents an ideal four-berth, smaller weekend tent packed with technical features. Most notably, the tent incorporates a pre-attached front extension providing space to sit and admire the view in good weather. This adds to the indoor living area to provide generous space for storage or preparing food, or for sheltering from the weather. Features such as the Tension Band System also add stability to the tent if the weather should ever catch you out, as you can create a stronger, more rigid tent shape when the wind rises.

  • Sheltered front porch pre-attached
  • Double Entry - two doors - one front and one side door
  • Riser Groundsheet in living area for more comfort
  • Lights out inner tent - allows you to sleep for longer in the morning.

Berth 4 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) 3000

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 Fabric Protex 70D 3000mm

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.
