Practical and reliable two person tunnel tent that's quick and easy to set up.

The Vaude Arco 2P is a classic-style backpackers tunnel tent, with plenty of usable space and a good-sized porch.

Fully waterproof with a bathtub style groundsheet to protect from groundwater, the Arco 2P can be pitched as-one to give you a secure, weatherproof shelter in minutes. Just slip the lightweight aluminium poles through the pole sleeves, secure them, peg out the guylines, and you're ready to relax after a days hike.

The flysheet door can be rolled away to the side or left open at the top to allow air in and ventilate the inner tent, preventing condensation build up and cooling the interior on hot days.

Straightforward and easy to use, the Vaude Arco 2P is a reliable backpacking tent for use from spring to autumn.

Great tent at a bargain price

Highly recommend this particularly at it's bargain price. It stood up well to the rain of Snowdonia this past weekend.

Very roomy inside, plenty of space for a double airbed to not cause contact with the outer surface and still have space to store things in the inner tent. A good sized angled porch to keep boots/cookers dry.

Sidepockets inside for keys/wallets, hoops for hanging lamps/torches and a drying line, all very useful. Sturdy waterproof outer.

Easily put up by 1 person in about 5 mins and packs down nicely into a watertight bag it comes in.

Definitely needs an addition of a ground sheet as the base of the inner tent is very thin and would easily be pierced by rocks/sticks, you can get generics that will work that are much cheaper than the official one. It only comes with enough pegs to peg out the tent so you need some extras (4) to peg out the guy ropes which is frustrating but you shouldn't let it put you off!

Light and Roomy bargain

Being 6'5, for years I have struggled to find a backpacking tent with a big enough sleeping compartment. Finally I have found one! In the past I had owned several Vango tents, the best if which was the Omega 350, which although it had a large front porch, the sleeping sleeping area was only long enough if sleeping diagonally.
I have now purchased the Arco 2P and have found it to be nothing short of superb. It's well built, has a porch area big enough to keep all your kit in if it rains, but most of all the sleeping area is HUGE! Being a simple tunnel design, you can pitch it in 5 mins.
A couple if tips: I've also purchased a footprint online, as the flooring material is quite thin.
I also made use of Go Outdoors' price promise where they give you an extra 10% off a competitor's price if found cheaper
Highly recommended.
