The Vango Taiga 500xl is the ultimate multi-functional family tent, which has a variety of layout options in the sleeping space and the living area. The Taiga 500xl benefits from the patented Vango Airbeam system, which means the tent is quick and easy to pitch. Ideal for those requiring a spacious five berth tent, with a front enclosed porch, a sewn in living space and full standing height. The three zone system is especially popular with campers, as they can leave any wet clothes, muddy boots of the kids toys in the porch area, whilst keeping the sewn-in living area of the tent clean and tidy.

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.
