A simple but roomy tent with a look that stands out.
The Vango Ark DS 300
is a 'gothic arch' tunnel tent with great internal space, plenty of head room and reassuring stability.
It uses Vango's 'Airzone' system to ensure a constant comfortable flow of air inside, and has an added inner tent and full height front windows.
Very quick and easy to pitch, it has colour-coded poles so even a novice won't get in trouble. The 'gothic arch' style gives you extra headroom and breathing space, and lets you stand out from the crowd if you're pitched at a busy site.
The Ark DS 300's sewn-in groundsheets make it draught free and bug free, very comfortable for sleeping or relaxing. Inner pockets let you stash your gear without losing it, and the large windows give you excellent vision and help add to the tent's 'airy' feel.
The front door can also be turned into a simple sun porch on a nice day, to create even more space.

Good tent, easy to put up, other than pegs provided were poor & bent easily. A couple of more guy lines on the side of the tent would be good. Overall though very pleased with it, big enough for three, looking forward to using it again.

I really like this tent! It's light and the poles aren't too long. Easy to pack away and carry. A bit of a Tardis. Doesn't look very big from outside, but once in there is plenty of room for a double blow up bed. Space around the mattress for my bags, coats etc. Very easy to put up, I leave the inner tent in place and just roll it up, still packs down well. Only 3 guy ropes but stays up in very strong winds without any mishaps. Pockets inside are a nice touch, as is the light hanging loop.
Good Tent watch out for side winds, 25 June 2013
By Happy Camper (Gloucester)
Just come back from the Outer Hebrides , The tent kept us dry, however in moderate side winds the inner and outer touched a lot on the windward side, luckily it didn't rain ! The tent has only 3 guidelines,1 at the back and 2 at the front, which means you can't tension the sidewall of tent enough, a couple of guidelines on sidewalls would help and I may add some to the front as well. without wind the tent is great, But I will use my old Vango Zetes 300 more often as it handles the wind better.
Great tent - shame about the pegs!, 22 April 2013
By Winged Beast (Cheshire)
Bought 3 of these for Bronze D of E groups. Split between 3, weight was good. Pitching was quick and straightforward even on first attempt and with inner separate. Generous head room meant 3 could sit in tent comfortably. Only let down was the poor quality of pegs - far too flimsy, no spares, and one of the tents was one peg short in the pack.
Fantastic Tent, 20 August 2012
By Lone Gunman (Stockport)
I bought this tent for an extended motorcyle tour in Europe. I spent 31 Nights in this tent and i cannot fault it. It is simply to put up, As it goes up it one piece and only takes 5 minutes. It stood up to some serious weather and always kept me warm and dry. And after all the abuse i gave it, It still looks like new, Fantastic tent.
