4 Reviews of the Artemis 400

By: Outwood13  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2012   Rating: 

This is my first tent, and I am so so so happy I did my research and chose this one. I have put 2012 as the date manufactured, but I do believe this is an end of range tent, so I could be wrong on the year manufactured.

We've been on a couple of outings, and I am really impressed with how it has handled the weather. We've been pitched on a windy cliff top, and though the fabric moved (of course), those steel poles didn't move a muscle! I felt very safe in there. We also endured a couple of storms (great camping trips huh!), but the tent stood firm and not a drip was dropped. I was so pleased!

I like the mesh door on the side, great for getting some fresh air without the bugs! I wish it had one on the front as well, and I believe that in this price range, I was lucky to get one at all.

The first couple of times the tent was pitched were a little awkward, but only because I am a newcomer to camping. Yesterday, I pitched the tent to dry and it took 15 minutes BY MYSELF to put up! Fair enough, the guy ropes would have taken a little longer. But not much!

There is plenty of room for me and my daughter, comfortably fitting in two beds with room for bags etc in the 'bedroom'. There are plenty of pockets in the bedroom for belongings, as well as in the lounge. It also has plenty of handy loops to hang lanterns etc, which were all useful.

We had two chairs, table, 'kitchen corner' in the 'lounge', toys and clutter and had plenty of space. We received a free canopy as part of a deal, but haven't had it out yet, we simply don't seem to need the extra space right now. I would like to buy the carpet though. Although the picnic blankets we used were quite sufficient.

All in all I'm happy with what I bought. I'd LOVE a window in the bedroom , and a mesh on the front door as well as the side, but for the price I paid, I can't complain. I'm looking forward to many happy camping trips in my Vango Artemis 400.

(PS. Yes, a bigger bag would be great. I've NEVER managed to get it back in with the poles.)

My Artemis tent withstood gusts of up to 60 knots. When we took the tent down we found that the tent pegs had twisted themselves into corkscrews. Other tents were torn but not this one.

Even though this tent has been discontinued Vango has brought out a very similar model to this one, complete with steel tent poles.

With all the flaps opened it is easy and safe to cook inside this tent. We only use it for two people and so there is enough space for 2 comfortable camping beds and other furniture.

This tent has made me a very happy person and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you cannot find this one, then buy the new version from Vango.

So much more robust than a government policy on public sector pensions. This tent has steel poles so makes the tent structure really strong. Easy to assemble and takes about 20 minutes all-in with guy lines staked in and children delegated to help. Steel poles make the packed tent a bit heavy, but it packs down to a reasonable size for the back of a car. Great ceiling height, light and space. Good size with ample space for storage.

This is an ideal tent for any family of 2 adults and 2 small or one older child. There is room for a double and a single airbed which is generous for a 4 berth tent. We had 3 chairs and a table and fridge in the living space and our bags too, there's plenty of room. We used ours on a couple of short breaks in Lake District, we had lots of wind and rain and uneven ground but the tent was perfect. Easy and quick to erect and cosy inside too. We also have the extension which is ideal to cook in or shade from the sun. Stand up height and all round comfort the whole week. Ideal first time camper and perfect second tent for shorter camping trips

Manufacturer's Description

The Vango Artemis is a new range of steel poled tunnel tents with a wider central pole so it offers greater living space than most other conventional tunnel tents. Although steel poled, the proportions of the tent are neat and tidy and the easy, quick erection make it an outstanding new addition to the Vango Weekender range.

The tent is constructed using Power Plus steel poles, a Protex 2000 Polyester flysheet (2000mm hydrostatic head protection) with taped seams and a fully sewn-in polyethylene (10,000mm HH protection) groundsheet. The layout of the Artemis 400 tent features a 4-berth single room inner (no divider) with part mesh door, a large side 'J' door with mesh double door, large window on the opposite elevation, cavernous front panel door which doubles as a sun porch when propped open (porch poles not included). Other details of the tent include; flysheet first pitching, heavy duty pole sleeves, storm skirts, pelmet with storage pockets, cable entry point, reflective webbing, 'Crystal Clear' windows (with internal covers), breathable fabric inner tent. Handled carry bag and repair kit included. Flame retardant throughout.

Height: (living area) 200cm
Weight: 15.3kg
Pack Size: 80x24x25cm
