A truly special tent that is packed full of features, great design and easily the most functional of Vango TC range. The polycotton (or technical cotton as it is otherwise known) fabric makes the tent a bit heavier than its polyester version but equally makes it more durable, longer lasting, cooler in hotter climates and a lot quieter. Arguably the best "value for money" tent we sell.
