The Vango Tahiti 800xl Airbeam tent, similar to the smaller Tahiti 600xl but with the additional side studio built onto the side of the tent for added sleeping space or storage space. A completely unique design, the Tahiti uses an Airbeam structure to create a wonderful living space, which has two living space compartments with the front awning on the front as well. The deep sleep bedrooms are darkened inners to maximise the sleeping time, and also offer a 250cm depth, which is much better for double camp beds or queen size airbeds. With a pitch time of 16 minutes, the Tahiti offers a massive family tent, with a really good pitching time, allowing maximisation of leisure time, and less arguments all around. In addition to this, the Tahiti is manufactured in the new Sentinel Exclusive 150 Denier fabric, which is much stronger than previous Vango fabrics, and will enhance the durability of the tent, whilst the ColourLok design allows the tent to keep its colour for longer during the UV fading process.

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||1 Front Door, 3 Side Doors (Mesh Panels on Front Interior and 2 Side Doors)|
Sentinel Signature 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.
