A new design for 2018, the Vango Verona 600xl is a beast of a tent, offering lots of versatility, lots of space and some really premium features. The Verona is a three zone tent with a front awning built into the design, with the sewn-in groundsheet area encompassing the living and sleeping spaces. However, the tent has so much flexibility due to the different layout options available, making it ideal for the growing family needing plenty of space. There is also a rear door, which also offers an excellent storage area or alternate access into the sleeping zones of the tent. The Airbeam structure creates a strong, quick-pitch system, which is super easy to erect, and just as easy to pack away.

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.

|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.

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.
