Vango Lismore Air 450

The Lismore Air 450 is a great value for money tent – and perfect for first-time campers or families buying their first inflatable tent.

Although the price makes it very attractive, it doesn’t lose out on quality, with loads of practical features like cable entry points, airspeed valves and mesh doors. Vango’s inflatable technology also makes it really easy to pitch.

The pre-angled AirBeams allow you to make the most of the tent’s internal room and can be inflated in seconds with the manual pump supplied with the tent. The Lismore is split into three areas – for sleeping, living and storage or cooking.

The two king-size bedrooms feature Nightfall fabric to block out early morning light. The large living area provides plenty of space to relax and the pre-attached front awning is ideal for storing kit or for setting up your kitchen.

The hydrostatic head rating of 3,000mm should be more than enough to cope with the worst British weather.

The door on the front awning can be arranged into three positions (fully open, semi-open or closed), which means that you can use the area to suit your needs. It also includes an additional groundsheet protector, to protect it from damage and extend the tent’s life.

Vango Harris Air 350

The Vango Harris Air 350 is a three-berth air tent designed with a focus on ventilation. The Air 350 has multiple mesh panels throughout, with an additional mesh panel behind the bedrooms to maximise ventilation and keep your tent cool.

The Sentinel fabric keeps the pack size and the weight low, while ensuring quality and durability. Nightfall darkened fabric in the king-sized bedrooms helps you sleep in longer. The pre-attached front canopy provides a great area for dining and relaxing, offering extra living space.

Other features include a large living area, a drop-down doorstep, large mesh roll-away door and a toggled bedroom divider.

The large diamond-clear windows have toggled curtains for privacy and Vango’s TBSII System provides extra stability.

The Harris Air 350 is an ideal family tent for summer breaks.

Lismore Air TC 600XL

Winner of the Best Family Tent in the Camping Awards 2023, the Lismore Air TC 600XL offers a touch of luxury alongside reliability – easy to pitch, spacious and sturdy and reliable in all weathers, it’s a perfect shelter for long summer breaks with the kids.

The AirBeam technology ensures quick inflation and a sturdy and reliable structure. But, if you’re looking for frills, then how about the sumptuous Sentinel TC fabric?

The technical cotton improves climate control through the tent, so it’s cooler when it’s hot outside and warmer when the external temperature drops. But, practicality aside, it just feels right. Polyester is all well and good, but the natural quality of cotton gives tents something more.

Not only does the Lismore look good, it’s soft to the touch, smells like a traditional canvas tent and even sounds better when it gently shifts in the wind. And it all makes this a premium tent for family holidays.
