Pitched Indoors - Perfect Condition
A return of a classic style of tent, the Vango Palermo 800 brings back the podded style into the Airbeam range, with three separate bedrooms for greater comfort and privacy. The Palermo is very simple to erect and pitch, and can be pitched within ten minutes. Based on the designs of the Vango classics, the Diablo and Colorado, the Palermo is bound to be a winner, with an excellent living space and porch area, as well as a traditional dome style, which is more suitable for coping with the British weather systems.

|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.
