Our best buy for a long time.
4_5 out of 5

We had to return a new Coleman Waterfall 5, too many small manufacturing errors. By contrast this Vango Icarus is excellent, very well made, thoughtful design and loads of space for the price. No surprise that it's now sold out at most outlets. Used it in moderate wind and rain as well as hot days, No issues at all. Erection with the highly tensioned poles needs to be practiced, but OK in the end, and a very solid tent as a result, especially when its unique tension straps system is used. Very happy.

Good tent
4_5 out of 5

I bought this tent to go camping with my wife and 4 year old daughter. It withstood strong winds and rain. It’s a tent worth buying. Just ensure when erecting the 2 x tension straps on the inside are unclipped. The beds I bought were bigger than expected so we have used it as 2 rooms. I’m going to buy a festival done shelter to keep the chairs and tables in as we just used the car for storage.

Very waterproof tent with lots of windows
4_5 out of 5

After 2 weeks in North Wales…
POSITIVES: Very waterproof (4000HH rating). No impact / little in windy storms (but a bit noisy)
2 high doors. Good height in lounge. Lots of windows. Very easy to put up (start with middle black pole). Excellent value & design. Easy clip in bedroom system.
NEGATIVES: Front door hooks are high up so I extended them with a hair band loop to reach door toggle more easily. Internal curtain loop extended with hair band to close curtains.
5 guy ropes easily added at front & back for increased windproof for big storms.
2 padlocks on doors.
Noisy skirt on tent outer

1st use - torrential rain - bone dry inside
4_5 out of 5

Its early stages of our use but the very first night absolutely chucked it down for hours and the tent was bone dry inside in morning- there may be worse conditions to come but that’s a very good start for the tent.

Straightforward to put up with two people and well laid out. I think for the price this is an excellent tent for a couple or small family and I recommend it. Simples!

Really glad we chose this tent
4_5 out of 5

It stood up like a dream to brisk winds by the Solent and within 2 weeks we were in a damp wooded valley by the Tamar and it kept out 12 hours of torrential rain. It's just the right size for me and my daughter because we can have our own rooms and the living area is perfect for our kit and a couple of chairs. That said, it's ample for a family of 4. Big, clear windows, so plenty of light, the black out bedrooms are pretty good and the securing straps did a good job of keeping it sturdy. A brilliant buy in my opinion.

Excellent camping tent!!
4_5 out of 5

AMAZING is an understatement!!!
I went camping for a week and the weather was awful all week, heavy rain and wind, the tent stood like it was made from bricks, not a single droplet leaked in... its very spacious and sturdy, a lot of storage space and extra pockets allow you to be more organised and saves you the hassle of putting things on the ground.
I am more than happy with the tent and definatelly recommend this product to everyone!!
