It is safe to say that air tents have revolutionised camping in recent years. Invented in 2010 by Vango after over a decade of research and development, these pioneering designs have made it much easier to assemble even the largest of tents when camping.
Vango's AirBeam series paved the way and, like all genius inventions, it seems so simple after the pioneering design has been realised! In the case of air tents, what makes them so special is that, instead of tent poles, there are inflatable air beams.

Vango has refined their designs and expanded on its range of tents since their first air tents in 2010, but the central innovation remains the same. All the tents in this collection showcase this clever yet simple technology. The great benefit of a tent with an air beam structure is that it is so quick and easy to erect and to take down again. Instead of feeding steel or fibreglass poles into your tent, you simply unpack the whole thing, connect your air pump, and the structure will be up in a few minutes. This leaves you with more time to relax and explore the great outdoors.
Spacious and clever designs
The research that has gone into these tents does not just stop at the air beam technology, as you will also benefit from other elements such as Vango's Midnight bedrooms. Vango's tightly woven yarn fabric is such that it blocks sunlight from pouring through the tent into the bedroom, so you can have an optimal rest. As well as being fire retardant, the fabric is also highly breathable, meaning that conditions feel refreshing inside, no matter the weather. In addition, their ColourLok technology means that their fabric even has UPF of 50+, making sleeping conditions safer and fresher in those summer mornings.
Vango Earth collection
We are happy to include in this collection a number of air tents from Vango's newest Earth range. This has been developed in an ecologically friendly way. Vango has achieved this by recycling single-use plastics to create their own eco fabric called Sentinel. On top of being made in such a sustainable manner, these eco-friendly air tents offer all the other hi-tech features that you would expect. This includes mesh panels to increase airflow, covered entrances to prevent rainwater from getting into the tent, and Nightfall technology to stop light from getting into the tent when you're still resting.
