The Vango Iris 500 has been a staple of the family campsite for years. The Iris is an innovative and functional 5-person tunnel tent that teams panoramic views with functional interior space. The Iris features Vango's patented TBS®II Tension Band System which uses tensioned braces to prevent sideways movement, creating a stable tent which can withstand adverse conditions and strong gales. A tough Protex 70D polyester flysheet provides exceptional wet weather protection whilst high and low level ventilation panels create a comfortable flow of air through the tent. The new Vango Vista front offers stunning panoramic views from inside the tent whilst allowing much more light to brighten up the tents inner.

4_5 out of 5

Sturdy and fairly spacious tent

I bought this tent for a solo camping trip (with my dog). This had a higher rain rating than another. There is a mesh on the front door. There is a large window in one side. There are small windows either side of the front door with a 'curtain'. Nice feature that the side window 'curtain' drops down rather than rolling up so you can easily have it half open. Side door doesn't have mesh. No pockets down the middle but plenty in bedroom. It stood up well to wind&rain and warmed up fast in sunshine (plenty of vents tho). I put it up and down alone. Nice spacious lounge for a 3 pole tent. V happy.

Q&A (4)

Can you fit a double blow up bed in both of the sleeping areas- it does not show the individual widths of these only the overall. Thanks

11th Aug 2019, submitted by Alex

Hello Alex. Yes if you have two double air bed that are the low style and not the taller style then they will fit. The beds will touch the inner mesh bedroom pods but wont touch the outer waterproof fabric. I hope this helps.

Does this tent come supplied with the appropriate tent pegs?

9th Apr 2019, submitted by Cat

Hi Cat. Yes this tent comes with tent pegs that are at a high enough quality to hold the tent down, while camping though the weather is ever changeable and taking 4 or 6 larger stakes for piece of mind, this wouldn't be a bad thing. I hope this helps.
