A spacious and comfortable weekend tent that's ideal for adventure trips into the outdoors or festival goers.

The Vango Metis 500 Tent, available exclusively at GO Outdoors, uses a simple design that's popular for good reason - it's easy to pitch and comfortable to stay in, stays stable and sturdy even in poor weather, and gives you ample room for yourselves and your gear.

All-in-one pitching ensures that the inner always stays dry, and it uses Vango's TBS ®II system to stay stable in adverse conditions like strong, changeable winds. When tensioned, the bands brace the pole and prevent sideways movement, and in calm conditions the system can be disconnected.

The large porch area, convenient inner pockets, hanging points for lanterns, and its combination of breathable fabrics, linked-in groundsheet and easy ventilation all combine to make the Metis a comfy place to relax and enjoy your camping experience.

  • Part-mesh inner door lets air flow through but keeps bugs out
  • Linked-in groundsheet can be rolled away when not in use, easier to clean than a fully sewn in groundsheet
  • Diamond Clear windows maximise your light and ensure great visibility
  • Colour-coded poles for quick, intuitive pitching
  • Weather tested in a certified wind and rain test centre

First ever tent, 18 September 2016
By Bernie (southampton)
I bought this tent as my very first tent for me and my 2 kids. Its spacious and solid but i was disappointed the 'living area' groundsheet is not sewn in and did flap in the wind but a few pegs inside to secure and more tension on the outer corners and it worked brilliantly! Overall very pleased, great price, very sturdy and can't wait to get out there.

Vango Metis, 22 April 2016
By Cola (Newcastle on tyne)
I bought this tent to use on my own on my motorbike but wanted to be able to stand up in it. I took it straight up to Beadnel bay for the weekend but had to take the car due to the horrible weather conditions. We had rain sleet and snow and i thought about cancelling but decided to press on to give the tent a proper test. I Had the whole set up complete within half an hour on my own and hunkered down to see how it faired. The wind and rain proceeded to batter the tent for 24 hours and I have to admit to being concerned it would collapse. However it stood up to everything thrown at it and remained perfectly dry throughout. I cant wait to get back out there and the added bonus is my bike will fit in front porch easily. I would definitely recommend this tent.
