Optional Extras


A roomy and easy to pitch base for 5 campers or festival-goers.

The Vango Icarus 500 Deluxe's combination of space, flexibility and simplicity keep it popular with anyone looking for a weekend tent for family camping or festival visits. Now with more sleeping space, larger windows and adjustable low level ventilation, the Icarus 500 keeps evolving and improving.

Pitching is a breeze - the Powerflex fibreglass poles slide through the heavy duty pole sleeves and are easily secured with a ring and pin system, allowing you to erect and collapse the tent 'as-one' and keep the inner tent dry. In windy conditions the Vango Tension Band System makes the Icarus more sturdy and stable against gusts or knocks.

The outer is waterproof Protex 4000 polyester with taped seams to prevent leaks, and the fully sewn-in groundsheet is a simple solution for keeping out draughts and creepy crawlies.

The enormous front porch is great for storing gear, furniture, bikes etc, and the new larger windows give great all-round visibility and let in lots of light.

The side mesh door on the Vango Icarus 500 allows for insect-free ventilation, and the parallel-zip front door can be extended out as a canopy using awning poles (not included).

Front and rear venting and a breathable inner keep you comfortable inside, and 'comfort colours' (darker over the bedroom) mean there's no rush to get out of the tent on those bright mornings.

It comes with an oversized handled carry-bag that makes packing away simple.

  • Easy pitch tunnel style, pre-attached guylines, sewn-in groundsheet
  • Fully wind & rain tested
  • Cable entry with cable tidies, hanging storage, reflective webbing, easy-find inner clips
  • Vango AirZone ventilation
  • 2 full mesh doors, detachable flexible inner divider, part mesh inner doors

Icarus 500DXL, 15 May 2017
By grandpa (Nairobi, Kenya)
Took this tent to Kenya to use as play space for my grandson (13months). Easy to erect by fitting all poles to the ring pegs, while flat on the ground, then pegging out groundsheet and raising the tent up. The light coloured top proved to be a source of heat and the ventilation was rather inadequate, there being only one small opening under the window and a slightly larger opening above the sleeping area. some low level vents around the sleeping area would have improved the temperature control. The TBS was very good. Would have improved the stability if included in the extension Porch. Also needs some low level vents. We did not like having to unzip the fly screen before opening the side door.
Otherwise it stood up to the wind and rain exceptionally well. the only water that got in was from opening the doors but that is an inherent failure of this tent design.

Great tent for the price!, 07 May 2017
By Ben (Stevenage)
This is a great tent for the price....easy to assemble (the only tricky bit is fishing the poles through as the pockets are a bit tight) good ventilation and loads of windows making it very light inside.
The last time I put up a tent was 20 years ago and the first time took only 45 minutes
The sleeping area was very cozy and warm

Icarus 500, 01 May 2017
By Ste greg (Hucknall)
Looking for our first family tent. Came to look at something different saw the Icarus 500 set up in store. Decided there and then the Icarus package would suit our needs. First outing untested on the cliffs at Scarborough. The weather was terrible to the point of thinking of coming home on the first night, didn't sleep at all through worry. The Icarus stood up to everything Scarborough weather had to offer without the slightest problem. Brilliant tent

Good spacious tent, 01 May 2017
By Dave (Bristol)
We've only put this up once in our garden to check all was in order. Took about 20 minutes for my fiancée and I to put up, lots of room inside appeared to be of good quality. We did have an issue with the elastic snapping inside one of the poles which although disappointing from a relatively premium manufacturer was sorted with no fuss at our local go outdoors store.
