Vango have cleverly combined their simple-to-pitch, family-cum-festival tents with the harder wearing, larger family tents. The wonderful thing about the Vango Artemis is the inclusion of steel poles - tougher, stronger and longer-lasting.
Boasting 190cms of head space, the majority of tent users can happily stand up, if they please, with the wider central pole offering more space either side too - for a flysheet-first pitching, the extra space to move inside is more than handy!
The Crystal Clear windows come with internal covers for night, or even if you just fancy a nap, and with front and side doors there's no need to feel as though you're trapped in a rabbit warren. The bedroom is five-person; however, a detachable divider is available to separate the dorm into two decently-sized two person compartments.
With a pitch time of approximately 15 minutes, you're unlikely to be pulling your hair out, and the pack size of 80 x 25 x 28cm will slot comfortably in your boot with all the other accessories you'll need. Pitching instructions are available from Vango's website if you happen to misplace your own.
Customer service manager Craig and OutdoorKit marketing maestro Ryan's recent trip to Glasgow has resulted in a bunch of video tent reviews - grab a look at the Artemis 500 here. If you fancy bigger or smaller, the Artemis comes in a 400 (4-person) or 600 (6-person) style, all in stock and with groundsheets and footprints available separately from Outdoorkit.co.uk.
