The Vango Skye 500 5-man tent is a 3-poled tunnel tent; easy to pitch, great space to pack-size ratio and highly functional. The large porch is great for storing kit and features a linked-in groundsheet, which can be rolled under the bedroom area when not required. Clear side windows allow light into the porch area, whilst the Nightfall inner bedroom reduces the morning light. This tent is a great choice for weekend camps and festivals.

Quality Materials

The flysheet of the Vango Skye 500 is made from Protex 70D polyester, which is both waterproof and breathable, ensuring that you stay dry and comfortable inside the tent, even in wet weather. The tent also features a bathtub-style groundsheet made from durable polyethylene, which helps to keep water and dirt out of the tent.

Living Space

The Skye 500 offers plenty of living space, with a generous floor area of 8.6 square meters and a peak height of 1.75 meters. The tent also features a large porch at the front, which provides additional space for storing gear or cooking.

Supreme Stability

The tent also has a high level of water resistance, with a hydrostatic head rating of 3000mm on the flysheet and 10000mm on the groundsheet, which means it can withstand heavy rain and wet conditions without leaking. The tent also features TBS II Tension Band System, which provides additional stability and helps to prevent the tent from swaying in windy conditions.

Added Features

The Vango Skye 500 has a variety of features to make camping more comfortable, including multiple storage pockets, lantern hanging points, and a part-mesh inner door that provides excellent ventilation and helps to reduce condensation inside the tent. The Vango Skye 500 is designed for easy pitching, with color-coded poles and sleeves that make it easy to identify which pole goes where. The tent also features reflective webbing and guylines, which make it more visible in low light conditions.

Why Should You Buy This Tent?

Overall, the Vango Skye 500 is a great option for families or small groups looking for a spacious and comfortable tent for their camping adventures. Its sturdy construction, easy pitching, and ample living space make it a great option for camping trips where comfort and convenience are top priorities.

Brilliant service and quick

Came in good time and quick service. Would of liked a bit of protection maybe for the tent but everything was fine. So I was very pleased. Thank you


Ordered this to take my 2 sons camping (ages 8 and 9) and think it's a great starter tent. Very good quality for the price. Plenty of space for the 3 of us and easy to pitch and pack. Delighted!

Very easy to put up and decent quality. Ideal size for us!

Great tent, great value

Such a great tent for our family of 4. It was our first camping trip together as I have wonderful childhood memories of camping, and the tent really helped. It holds 2 sleeping compartments. But first night I slept in the front part, outside the sleeping compartments, to let kids settle, which holds ample space to do so comfortably. First night we had 10 hours of continuous heavy rain and the tent withheld. It’s’ material dries quickly. All in all, really great tent: spacious, easy to pitch and break down, weather resistant, good quality and size.


It's easy to put up after you’ve done it a couple of times. I didn't find the pitching instructions especially helpful and glad we practised in the garden before going away. Tent itself is well designed and good quality.
