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

Great tent easy to pitch, 08 July 2016
By KentCat (Kent)
A fantastic offer on a great tent. Given the size I was a little hesitent about two of us putting it up but it was really simple and easy. Although we didn't use the divider in the bedrooms there is clearly lots of space for multiple occupants. Hanging pockets in the middle are really useful!

highly recommend, lots of space and reasonable price.

Icarus 500, 28 June 2016
By JakFrost (Lancs)
Great tent loads of space like the living area. Wonderful if it doesn't rain.... Used 4 times always pack away clean and dry and very carefully. Leaks in at the fixing rings where the pegs are and has done on last two occasions,. Not overstretching so must be a flaw in design. Probably would not pay that amount again for a leaky tent.

Vango Icarus 500 Deluxe Tent, 27 June 2016
By Rosie (Edinburgh)
This is a great tent, the two main things that swung the purchase of this over other tents was the space and viewing panels. We took it up to Loch Lomond where we had a loch site pitch as even when it rained we sat very comfortably in the tent, still able to see the fabulous views of the loch. Very easy to erect about 15 - 20 mins. The poles are identical sizes two have red sections but the pole slots on the tent indicate where the two poles with red should be inserted. The tent endured a very harsh hailstone downpour, lashings of rain and brilliant sunshine - no problem. We had a few people asking us about the tent and space inside etc so that is a good sign. I highly recommend this tent.

satisfied customer, 26 June 2016
By noddy504 (Gloucester)
We have recently been on holiday in our Vango Evoque600 Airbeam tent. Whilst away we decided that it was to big to use for a few days away. We went to Gooutdoors in Exeter where we saw the Icarus 500 tent and thought it would do nicely. When we got home we put it up our daughters garden and wow what a size. This ten can be used on its own or with the awning. My husband is a motorcyclist and the tent on its own would do him nicely for a camping trip on his bike. All in all I thinks its a great tent

vango icarus classic 500, 26 June 2016
By Steve (suffolk)
Thought we would try this tent in garden first before venturing out, wise choice.

1, poor sewing on inner tent which ripped away from zip the first time opening the sleeping compartment.

2, 4000 hydrostatic head? It leaked.

In 34 years of camping, I've never had a tent that leaks the first time you field test it in my garden.

Shame, because i did really like. Only giving 1 star because my sons £20 fun tent is more waterproof.

Disappointed, taking tent back.
