Icarus 500 Deluxe Tent Tent Carpet for Icarus 500 Deluxe Icarus 500 Deluxe Awning Footprint for Icarus 500 Deluxe Tent

Price When Bought Separately: £502.96
You Save: £72.96
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

By Ellie
We were looking for a good ?? size tent ?? for our family ??????????? And we came across this one ??? and we love ?? The tent ?? is very well layed out. I would suggest this to anybody with a family ??????????? of 3-4 as I think 5 people in this tent ?? would be a little tight.

Great Tent, 07 April 2017
By Andrew (Glasgow)
I bought this to upgrade from a three man hiking tent, and definitely haven't been disappointed. Just spent a week on the west cost of Scotland (high winds and lots of rain) and the tent stood up to it all admirably.

As other people have commented the slope on the doors isn't great for the rain ingress, but isn't a show stopper.

There is loads of space, but I think I will purchase the front awning to make an already great value tent a belter.

Vango Icarus 500 Deluxe, 06 April 2017
By Shell
I love my new tent. Great value. Very good quality tent, impressed with all the features. Love the windows, mesh, pockets, sown in groundsheet, vents. Easy to erect and take down. Also got the groundsheet footprint and carpet for a bit of luxury. Can't wait to get the porch!

Excellent Icarus, 27 February 2017
By Ian (Newcastle Under Lyme)
We bought the tent in March of 2016 and so far have only used it once in the August of that year on a trip to the Lakes. The weather was less than pleasant on our last night, it rained from 9pm until 8pm the following day yet we were dry throughout. I have seen a few reviews on here complaining about poor stitching and waterproofing, maybe their tents were made at 4pm on a friday, ours was great.
Plenty of room for 3 people, I would have no more than 4 in it. We had a long 4 day weekend and found the living space to be great although we may invest in the awning for our trip this year so we can take the bikes. Easy to put up and take down, the extra groundsheet was a good purchase.

Great tent - no arguments!, 13 September 2016
By Amanda&Chris (Leicestershire)
Bought this tent initially to go to a weekend festival but with many more trips in mind. It's really spacious (but packs up well) with lots of thoughtful and useful extras like lots of pockets to put odds and bobs in. Went up quickly (although it might have been the expert putter upper!) and dismantled easily too. No arguments - either with the tent, the service or between those staying in it!
