The roomy sleeping space, large windows and effective ventilation mean it's a comfy shelter for any outdoor trips. The Eurohike Rydal 500 on the other hand is less expensive, although less attractive in its features. I think I would change it for a different one if I could, the step is such a danger and the non blackout bedrooms are annoying, but the space is perfect for one or two people.

The canvas is still in good condition, we've needed to make minor repairs to an internal zip and one of the rear elastic fixings. In the living area I had 2 folding chairs, a folding single camping table, kitchen equipment under the table in boxes, and a camping stove which you screw gas canisters in to, very economical.Yes it made the floor more 'homely' but because we were on a very sloght slope it just kept slipping all over. This 5-person tent from Vango is a great option for long camping adventures offering spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to 5 people. For optimum comfort, whack a tent carpet in the living area and line the sleeping area with blankets before lying sleeping mats on the top. The 4000mm HH polyester flysheet is both waterproof and durable, ensuring that you stay dry even during heavy rainfall.

The tunnel tent design optimises the space, with a sleeping are that can be divided in two depending on your family or group dynamic. Erection with the highly tensioned poles needs to be practiced, but OK in the end, and a very solid tent as a result, especially when its unique tension straps system is used.This also allowed us to put our child to bed but have space between us and her without disturbing her with lighting or noise whilst we played cards. But it hasn’t gone to tent heaven, it has found a new lease of life with our friends and their two young sons who are new to camping. Overall we have been very happy with this tent and are considering on purchasing a Air beam one just so I can go camping for the weekend on my own with our child (6yrs old) without the struggle of trying to get a poled tent up alone. Just back from a very wet week in Cornwall and only a few drips of rain in living area, because front guy rope came out overnight.

Would definitely recommend this though, easy to put up with one adult (especially if you can get a child to help). Maybe it’s worth mentioning, that the Vango Icarus 500 dlx is erected ‘flysheet first’, meaning that the bedrooms, that are not waterproof, stay under the protective and waterproof flysheet. A great option for family adventures the Vango Icarus offers spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to 5 people. Tents have evolved so much in the last 5 years, so the real question is this: is the Vango Icarus 500 DLX still a good little tent like it used to be, or is it an old model that should have been discontinued years ago?The spacious front porch is great for storing gear, furniture, bikes etc, and large windows give great all-round visibility and let light in. Being able to stand up is a big bonus over my “umbrella style” quick pitch tent, which is ideal for overnight stops.
