Vango Stargrove 600XL Air and Pole Tents Review

For 2019 Vango has launched their Stargrove tent in both Airbeam® and poled versions. This means that whatever your preference when it comes to structure Vango has it covered.

The Tent

This is another fantastic family tent from Vango. With the option of fibreglass poles or Airbeam® structure, the choice is yours.

The tent comes with pre-attached awning, large living area and rear bedroom area accommodating up to 6 people.

The bedrooms to the rear of the tent which is also versatile due to the toggled dividers allow you to have 3 x 2-person bedrooms or toggle away the dividers to create a master room. Bedrooms have storage pockets for small items to help keep them safe and bedroom fabric is made with lights out inner material to help reduce the amount of light coming into your sleeping area.

The living area is very spacious with large windows to let the light flood in and give you good views of your surroundings. These are made with Vango’s Diamond Clear material. Privacy curtains for each window allow you to block everything out as you settle and rise in this tent. These can be toggled away when not in use.

With light hanging points and 2 cable entry points in the main tent. The living area then opens out to the pre-attached awning.

2 large doors provide you with optional entry points to the tent depending on set up and have an integrated fly mesh to allow you to have the door open and still keep the bugs out.

The tent has the Vango TBS® (tension band system) to provide further stability in adverse weather conditions. These can be neatly stowed away into the handy pockets provided when not in use.

Tent skirt (bottom of flysheet) can be pegged out to ensure that any rain or water runs away from the tent.

Conclusion

A fantastic family tent that will allow plenty of room for everyone. Gives fantastic views of surroundings and great value for money. The awning provides great options for storage and extending the living area. The awning area does not have a sewn-in groundsheet but this can be purchased separately.

The only thing I dislike about this tent is that the privacy curtains are on the outside.

Need something a little bigger? Why not check out the Longleat 800 XL tents.
