The Vango Kapalua TC is a new tent for the 2020 season and certainly seems to tick all of the boxes for a family polycotton tent. The spacious three zones (Awning, Living & Sleeping) offer plenty of functionality, practicality, and value for money. The 550XL uses Vango’s Sentinel Signature Polycotton fabric but they have now embedded it with ColourLock which means that the colour and fabric is designed to last longer than other manufacturer’s tents.
The sheer amount of internal space is thanks to Vango’s Villa Construction Airbeams which means the walls are more vertical giving you not only better interior height but also allowing you to utilize every inch of the tent by putting furniture closer to the sides. A multifunctional front door gives you the flexibility to have it positioned open or shut, meaning whatever the weather is doing you can make the most of your holiday.
The Kapalua Air TC 550XL has the unique feature of a storage pod on the left-hand side of the tent, allowing you to declutter your tent or use it as your emergency loo, this then frees up room in the living area to make it your home away from home. A dividing door between the living and the awning area has a secondary mesh door located behind it which twinned up with the lovely big mesh window gives the tent a great bug-free airflow. Vango’s signature features such as SkyTrack, SuperSized Beams, zip-up curtains and zip-dividers are highlighted throughout this tent making it unlike any other on the market.
Seeing as the tent only takes 10 minutes to pitch, there is no reason why you can’t use the Kapalua for a weekend let alone a week’s camping! Finally, the tent is supplied with a new ‘Smart Pack Roller Bag’ which is oversized with a folding indicator and helps to get the tent packed away with complete.
