A roomy tent for six, using inflatable beams instead of poles. Set it up in minutes and your camp is ready!
Vango AirBeam® tents use inflatable beams in place of traditional poles, allowing you to pitch a large family tent in a matter of minutes! Pitching time takes only 3 to 10 minutes (depending on the size of the tent) and will be up and ready in 4 easy steps. All you have to do is take the tent out of the bag, pop a peg in each corner, pump up the inflatable beams and peg down a few guylines. It really is that simple!
They're so quick and easy to pitch that one person can pitch an AirBeam tent within minutes. Whether you’re camping solo or with the kids, an AirBeam tent will make pitching and dismantling a breeze.
The Vango Icarus Air 600's combination of space, flexibility and simplicity make it popular with anyone looking for a weekend tent for family camping or festival visits.
The outer is waterproof with taped seams, and the fully sewn-in groundsheet keeps out draughts and creepy crawlies.
The spacious front porch is great for storing gear, furniture, bikes etc, and the large windows give great all-round visibility and let in lots of light. Roll-up curtains allow for privacy when you need it.
The side mesh door 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 even on those bright mornings.
The whole tent packs into its handled carry-bag for simple, easy transportation.
Supplied with pump for fast inflation and deflation
I went to put this tent up 2 years and 2 weeks after buying it. Two of the airbags are rotted despite the fact that we have only used it 5 times and it was dried and stored indoors. Vango seem to find this acceptable and amusing and refuse to replace them as there is a two year guarantee. It doesn't matter that it is just over two years and they probably started to fail in less than 2 years. The quality is as bad as the customer service. Friends we camp with have no problems with outwell tents - I strongly recommend you get one. They want me to pay £100 for the two inner tubes at full price - RIP OFF

We love it !
We bought this tent mid summer and have used it twice both times in the lakes and both times it rained . The second time the wind and rain was relentless but the tent stood firm with no leakages whilst our friends tent flooded ! My sister a seasoned camper has also borrowed this twice instead of the hassle of taking their trailer tent due to its ease of set up . I put it up on my own with 3 children running around in about 15 minutes from start to finish . It took my husband and i around 10 the first time and we were complete novices !

Not so good
We bought this tent as our weekend tent for the ease of it just going up in minutes, which we were please say was the case brilliant...but unfortunately that's where it ends, we had rain and it leaked everywhere, we were gutted so we took it back to go outdoors, this was out trip away with it and was only bought 4 days earlier, we had to cut out trip short...we were then told when swapping out tent and upgrading to the nimbus 8 that the Icarus 600 and 800 are having lots of problems with leaking...it's a shame really as the tent is great looking and quite spacious inside we were considering buying the awning for it.

Vanga Icarus 600
Top quality tent. Other campers were coming up to look at, not believing how fast it went up!
Bought after reading other reviews.
1st time camper(complete novice)
Bought footprint to complement, which aided set up.
1st ever use, I had it up in 10mins.
All pegged out in another 20mins.
Re-packed in under an hour.
I could not recommend this enough for 1st timers and seasoned campers looking to upgrade.
Well worth the money spent.
Will buy awning next for additional storage. etc.

We have been camping twice now and I can honestly say this is the best tent, so easy to put up and quick to take down, never going to a poled tent again.

wow what a great tent
We bought this tent for the summer and it is so great. We went camping to lossiemouth and ended up there when the tail end of hurricane bertha was there. We were amazed by how well our tent stood up against the terrible rain and 50mph winds . Other tents with poles were ripped apart but ours was still in tact

Brilliant! I take my two young children camping regularly, after a long journey, they don't like to wait for a tent to go up, this one literally went up in 10 minutes, they can even inflate it, it also only takes 20 minutes to pack up again, easily fits back into the bag, airbeam tents are definitely the best, no going back to heavy,clumsy poles. :)
