The Vango Aether is made from Vango's Sentinel Eco fabric, giving durability and quality, but also peace of mind you are helping to protect our great outdoor environment. How have Vango incorporated recycled single use plastics into thei Earth Collection? Firstly PET (polyethylene terephthalate), single use plastics are collected, sorted, washed and crushed. The plastic is then made into pellets and spun into a thread, which is woven into the Vango Sentinal Eco fabric. This fabric is then made into the Vango Earth Tents and is all ready to accompany you and keep you safe from the elements in comfort, on your next camping adventures! This Sentinal Eco fabric of the Vango Aether Earth 600XL tent brags a waterproof rating of 3000MM HH and can also be easily cleaned with a simple wipe down. In the tent world, 1000MM is the lowest level considered to be waterproof, using a hydrostatic head test, so the Vango Joro will definitely keep yopu dry in unpredictable weather. Allowing campers to be assured this tent will perform in harsh conditions , it's seams are fully factory taped and the material is 70D (a very high-density weave) recycled polyester, which is highly watertight, dependable and hardy, whilst being low weight, making it easier to move your Vango Joro from home storage to your vehicle and from your vehicle to your chosen pitch. It really is a durable material, with strong weather resistant qualities, meaning you can can explore the countryside whatever the weather! This exclusive Vango Sentinel Eco material is fire retardant, meeting the ISO5912 standards (these are stringent international standards, which specify requirements on safety, including fire, performance, rain resistance and fitness for use). It has a UPF (an ultraviolet protection factor, which is a rating system for clothing and fabrics that protect you from the sun) of 30+, so you can be sure your little ones will be sheltered from the sun. Vango have also incorporated their ColourLok technology we have seen in their recent tent and awning fabrics, into this Sentinel Eco material, which aids colour retention from UV light, so other campers on site with be envious of your style for years to come!
