The Vango Tahiti 600xl Airbeam tent is the perfect family tent, offering a quick-pitching solution thanks to the Airbeam inflatable system, and a reliable, durable family tent in the new Sentinel 150 Denier Polyester with ColourLok. The new fabric is designed to last much longer than your regular tent fabric, and will also retain its colour better over the years. Furthermore, the design of the Tahiti 600xl is a unique design, a three-zone tent with a mesh entrance into the front awning, allowing better ventilation to the front awning area. There are three mesh doors into the main living space, allowing plenty of ventilation into the main living compartment, which will help to reduce the effects of condensation with a polyester tent. In addition to this, despite being a 6 berth tent, the mass of living space this tent features, allows for an additional 2-berth bedroom to be added (sold separately) to increase the tent to an 8 berth.

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.

Sentinel Exclusive 150 Denier Polyester Fabric, with ColourLok
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.
