The Vango Universal carpets come in a range of sizes, all ideal for different size tents, and their living spaces. The Universal carpet will add some comfort, warmth and insulation to the tent, which can be ideal in the colder camping climates, found in Spring and Autumn. The carpet also has a PVC backing, making it waterproof, and allowing it to be used externally from the tent as a picnic rug. The Vango Universal Carpet 260 * 360cm is designed to sit into pretty much any tent with corresponding dimensions, and will fit into all of the following Vango tents, though it will not sit "wall to wall" in any of the tents. You would need specific tent carpets if you want the carpet to cover the entirity of the living spaces.
|Year of Manufacture||2016|
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.
