A sturdy, comfy and easily-pitched tent that's perfect for a weekend getaway - exclusively available at GO Outdoors.

The Vango Icarus Classic 500 gives you the space and comfort you need for easy family camping, with a simple and sturdy design that's easily set up to give you plenty of relaxing room.

It's made with a highly waterproof Protex 4000 polyester flysheet with taped seams to prevent leaks, and a fully sewn-in storm-skirted groundsheet keeps out draughts and bugs. It's simple to pitch, with easily secured Powerflex fibreglass poles, and you can erect or collapse the tent 'as-one' and keep the inner tent dry if it's raining.

Vango's clever 'AirZone' system uses high and low ventilation panels, along with the breathable polyester inner, to let air flow inside, while the 'lights out' darker fabric stops bright morning light from overheating the bedroom. The TBS ®II system makes sure that the tent stays stable even when the weather gets rough, especially in strong, changeable winds. When tensioned, the bands brace the pole and prevent sideways movement (they can be removed if you're camping in calmer conditions).

  • Robust, hardwearing waterproof PE groundsheet stands up to the rigours of the most active campers
  • Conveniently positioned inner pockets for your essentials
  • Diamond Clear windows maximise light and visibility
  • Easy to use toggled privacy curtains that can  roll away when not in use
  • Integrated eyelets let you prop open the door and create a canopy with optional king poles (not included)
  • Zipped cable entry point with hook & loop tidies
  • Lantern hanging points positioned in the living and bedroom areas
  • Easypack oversized carry bag with 50% more volume, for simple packing
  • Fire retardant fabrics meet European EN5912 safety standard
  • Weather tested to the European standard EN5912 by certified test centre

Good Buy - No Complaints, 21 July 2016
By Hoots (Lincoln)
We have had two long weekends in this tent to date. Very easy to erect. It has survived 4 hours of heavy rain without leaks and also withstood strong winds without incident. We also got the carpet and although it doesn't fit exactly it made the living area more comfortable and warmer. The sleeping area allows for three adults to sleep comfortably within two compartments with a little room for bags etc however it was even better when there were just the two adults, loads of space.

We paid less than the RRP and feel we got a bargain. I would recommend this product.

By kcob (Ballynahinch)
Great value. Easy up and down. Instead of buying the Vango canopy i got the freedom trail universal canopy and it fits perfectly.

Brilliant buy, 29 June 2016
Love this tent. Easy to pitch and roomy insid. In a week we had no condensation at all, and it is beautifully waterproof. Would recommend the footprint, but carpet is obviously a standard fit as doesn't fill living area fully
