The Anantara IV Air 650XL Tent
The Vango Anantara III was awarded tent of the year in 2021 and now in 2022 Vango has introduced the Anantara IV. The Anantara IV Air comes in 2 sizes with 2 fabric options. The tent comes in sizes 450XL and 650XL and in both Polyester and Technical Cotton options.
Today we are going to take a look at the Anantara IV Air in polyester. This is a big tent that will sleep 6 comfortably as there is lots of space inside. The villa like construction means that the sides of the tent are in a more upright position allowing you to walk or place items closer to the sides.

This tent is divided into 3 main areas. To the rear of the tent is the bedroom area, the living area in the middle and an awning area at the front.
This tent also allows you to add more room with the optional extras available. Including an extra annex, sleeping areas or both. Please see the section below regarding what these are.
Structure – This is an airbeam tent with Single Point Inflation – multiple deflation points which manages 5 supersize beams. The tent is a large tunnel style tent and has Vango’s TBS (tension bracing system).
Beams are extra large at around 13cm wide to help give extra stability.
Guy Lines – Comes with pre attached guy lines and webbed storm straps for added stability in adverse weather conditions. These are also cleverly coloured so they are more visible where you need them to be and at higher points blend with the colour of the tent.
Fabric – Vango have used their Sentinel Elite 150D 5,000HH (212g fabric) Polyester with ColourLok and UVPF rating of 50+. So the fabric will retain it’s colour and look fresher for longer. This is a fire retardant fabric and meets European EN5912 safety standards.
Cable Entry – multiple cable entry points. The Anantara has 3 cable entry points to allow you to run electrics safely into your tent.
Windows – Large, tinted, panoramic windows with zipped privacy curtains. there are also a few skyline windows that the privacy curtains also cover.
Doors – Entrance from the front and side of the tent. Three side doors, 1 side door has a canopy overhead that is supported by an aluminium pole.
Extra large front entrance with multiple opening and ventilation options. All windows on this include the options of bug mesh, PVC windows and privacy curtains so you can chop and change the layout and use of them.
Ventilation – the Anantara has great ventilation with both low vents, below the windows and a large ventilation panel on the rear. Remember you can also have ALL doors closed with just bug mesh screen to allow more if needed.
Bedrooms – 3 Dark Midnight Bedrooms so you don’t wake up so early. The bedroom are all sized differently with the master being 160cm wide, the second 140 cm wide and the third at 120cm wide. All bedrooms are about 250 cm deep. The dividers between bedrooms are zipped so you have the option to open them up and creat larger spaces if you wish.
Doors also have mesh panels built in if you need extra air flow or even to just let some extra light into the sleeping areas. Storage pockets in bedrooms.
Living Area – Large living area and separate awning area that would be great to use as a kitchen area. Awning area comes with a grooundsheet.
This tent also has the Vango sky track system that will allow you to hang various storage or light systems.
Storage pockets are also located outside the bedroom areas.
Optional Extras – Additional studios/rooms can be added to this tent to provide either extra sleeping areas or storage. These are added via a zipped connection.
An additional internal 2 berth bedroom can also be bought and hung/placed in the living room area.
Front of this tent comes with a zip if you wish to add an additional extension or awning. Having this zipped onto the tent rather than pulled over and attached elsewhere gives greater stability and keeps drafts out.
Tent carpet and ground sheet are also available for this tent.
