Vango Icarus 500 Tent

The ever-popular Vango Icarus 500 Tent has been reprised for the 2013 season. This tent was made wider in 2012 and it keeps those larger proportions for this season too.

The Vango Icarus 500 has built its popularity on the back of its fantastically simple 'as-one' easy to pitch system and the simple 3-pole 'no hassle' construction making it an ideal weekend or short break tent. 

The Vango Icarus 500 features a 3+2 berth breathable inner tent (with removable divider) and a generous (335x245cm) living area with a fully sewn-in polyethylene groundsheet.

Technical features of the Vango Icarus 500 tent include a Protex 3000 embossed polyester flysheet with 3000mm hydrostatic head waterproof protection, venting panels for AirZone air circulation, Powerflex fibreglass poles, TBS tension band system for extra strengthening in adverse weather and a 10,000mm HH polyethylene sewn-in groundsheet.

  • 'D' shaped side door with mesh double door
  • Step-in sills
  • 'U' shaped front door with mesh double door

  • Canvas thing what I bought :-) 13th June 2013 45 great tent, erected in 15 mins staright from 'as delivered' state, which is what we wanted. We have an Outwell 6 which used to take around an hour to erect, great for 2 week pitch, not clever for quick weekend getaway. Roomy enough for 3 large people. Only fly in the ointment was the pathetic room divider, was almost not worth bothering with. Not convinced I would want to pitch it in a windy spot, but then it wasn't bought for that sort of camping.

  • A pleasure to live in! 28th August 2012 45 We have used it in for 12 days in a row with no problems, we do use the closed canopy to give us enough room but there are 5 of us 2 adults and 3 children and a large dog.

  • Tentastic! 8th August 2012 55 In our third season now with our Icarus 500. It's a fairly big family tent (we are 2 x adults & 2 x children), has withstood every weather known to man (except snow & Ice!) and still going strong! I have replaced two split poles but thats about it. Have now used it on thirteen trips altogether ranging from weekends to full weeks camping and don't see why I can't get a few more years out of it yet. Best tent I have ever purchased for the money.

    from CambridgeVerified Purchaser@family camper The Vango Icarus 500 is a very popular sturdily waterproof easy to erect tent
  • Embarassingly big! 21st July 2012 45 First outing with this tent was a camping trip with a bunch of friends. Let's just say our tent was about twice as big as everyone else's, this thing is huge. Very easy to set up though and soon got over the embarrasment when it started raining and everyone fitted in the 'lounge' section.

  • Another Excellent Tent From VANGO 18th May 2012 55 A very impressive tent overall, quick and easy to pitch, usual high build quality as you would expect from Vango with a very usefull range of additional accessories including a fantastic enclosed canopy, (which literally doubles the living space!) carpet and footprint. I would highly recommend this tent to anyone looking for a family tent, although i would class it more of a comfortable 4 birth rather than 5.
