The Vango Ravello 600 is a six berth tent, ideal for those wanting a budget, quick pitching tent for their camping holidays. The Ravello 600 is very similar to the Solaris 600 tent, but has the rainsafe side door, as opposed to the canopy. The rainsafe door is an excellent feature, as it allows access to the tent, without getting the interior wet, when it is raining. Additionally, the patented Airbeam system allows the tent to be pitched within 8 minutes, making it perfect for any campers not wanting the hassle of a pole tent. Furthermore, the Ravello features a sewn-in groundsheet for added comfort and protection from the elements.

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)||
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.
|Doors||Dual Entry to the tent - Front and Rainsafe side door|
Protex Polyester, 70 Denier - treated for 4000mm
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.
