Our Review

I have discussed before about the usefulness of having a camping tarp in your kit, and have these video instructions on how to put up a tarp.

Well, being a bit if a tarp fan, I was really impressed when I saw this Vango Family Shelter. It's basically one large tarp that you put over the front of your tent.

There's plenty of space to shelter under here!

As you can see, this tarp covers a large area, including extra protection for your tent.

Now I've not got my hands on one yet to try it myself, but from the details and looks, it will be a really good addition to any family camping kit.

There's only one pole too, with the rest of the tarp structure supported by the tent.

It's a similar price to other tarp kits and includes the pole, for ease of use and looks, this is worth considering IMHO. It's certainly cheaper and more flexible than a tent awning. I see no reason why you couldn't pitch this over a side door of the tent if you prefer.

The pole is supplied and can be extended to a height of 220 cm.

The material is also fire retardant, so it makes a great shelter for cooking under.

Great for creating more outside living space when the weather isn't as cooperative!
