Vango TBS Vista 600DLX Tent Reviews

General comments: The Vango vista has been our family tent for 4 years now, and overall it's served us very well. We've done family week camping in wonderful and not so wonderful weather - when it's hot you can use either side door as a sun canopy, and when it's not so hot there's plenty of room inside, especially if you don't use the third inner (there are only four of us, so we don't tend to bother). The tent is high enough in the middle section to house table and chairs comfortably, or for adults to walk around, and the footprint groundsheet which goes under the bedrooms, offers extra piece of mind in the standard English summer.
The TBS (Tension Band System) which strengthens the tunnel construction against winds works well and is very easy to use - this tent stood up to winds and storms last year at a time when various parts of the country were being flooded with just a bit of extra flapping. There are also handy storage pockets built into the inners and strung from the middle walls, extra bits of thoughtfulness that count. With everything colour coded in terms of poles and inner tents you don't need the manual to put it up, it's self explanatory.
Pros: As this is a tunnel even though it's a big tent, it's remarkably easy to put up, I can and have done it myself, or with just the aid of a small child. I particularly enjoy the part after putting the poles in, when you peg one end, pull the other, and hey presto a tent.
Cons: I have suffered some leaks down the door seals in particularly heavy rain - it seems to be something to do with the folds that allow the door to act as a sun canopy as the water runs down the inside of them, dripping into the middle of the tent rather than running down the inside of the door and out.
