2 Reviews of the Azure V 600

By: Johnsgotwood  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2014   Rating: 

I thought I would update my previous review as we've now had the tent for 12 months and have spent over 40 nights in it with no other issues. Firstly almost immediately after writing my original review, Vango suddenly wanted to resolve my issue with the bent poles which were eventually replaced in February this year by Outdoor Action. Who I must admit were really good in trying to sort this out.

As I've already said we've used this tent a lot this year having managed two fortnight holidays and quite a few weekends , so you could say its tried and tested. Being metal framed it's not the easiest or quickest tent to put up but it's certainly worth the effort. The living area is huge and although the bedroom can be divided into a two and four , we prefer to open it up into one large bedroom. We also have the front extension which again is metal poles but once it's zipped on is relatively easy to put up. Certainly compared to a side extension that has to be strapped over the roof. You do have to be quite tall though to reach the top of the door, or stand on a small stool. We only used the extension if going for a week or more as it does add a bit of time to setting up and packing away.

Once up though the tent feels solid and secure. There's no movement in the wind and obviously no need for Vango's TBS system. I have added two guys ropes to the front and rear of the tent attached to the poles near the top. This is to help pull the flysheet tight, as without them it does seem to sag a little between the two poles opposite the side door. This seems to stop water from puddling on the roof which was an issue without them. That aside we had some torrential down pours which didn't affect the tent and had no leaks at all. We had the usual condensation but that was probably down to the fact that we like to keep it nice and warm inside in the cold evenings, although we do keep the vents open. The curtains on the main windows have zips and the vista front ones are toggled. The extension also has toggled curtains and the side ones have attachments half way which is a nice idea. The extension also comes with a ground sheet but this is separate and not sewn in, although it does fit quite well.

Packing it away is straight forward and the bag is plenty big enough. Just roll it up and place the bag over it. It's not the smallest when packed and the combined weight of the tent and poles is quite heavy at about 40 kilo's, which is still 20 kilo's lighter than the Vango Eden which we've now bought as our weekend tent.

So despite my previous review I actually love this tent. It's ideal for longer holidays where speed of pitching isn't an issue. It's waterproof and stable in high winds and it looks really good.

I bought this tent because it looked good and was large enough to put a double height air bed across the bedroom without taking up too much space. Overall the tent is a good size and is relatively easy to pitch although it wasn't windy at the time. My issue with the tent is that all the roof poles are bent out of shape, some worse than others. In fact one of the poles when put together looks as if it would be better placed on a roller coaster rather than a tent. This causes the fabric to stretch in some ares and sag in others. When we had rain it puddled on the roof and had to be pushed off. The company I bought it from were great in sending me a replacement set of roof poles but unfortunately these were just as shocking. I've emailed Vango customer service to this effect but the only response I've had so far was a question asking me if the picture I had sent of the roof poles was the roof poles or the leg poles. Bearing in mind I was emailing about the roof poles it seemed a stupid question to me and probably just done to waste my time. I'm not happy with Vango's response to this and lack of communication. I don't believe waiting a week or more between emails is customer service but a complete contempt towards people who spend their hard earned money on Vango products. If I can't get a satisfactory response to this soon then I will have no choice but to return the tent and ask for my money back. The problem I have with this is that the tent came from Blackburn and I live in Exeter. The moral to this is don't buy a tent over the internet , buy locally then at least you can take it back and show the dealer what problems you are having. I expected better quality control than this from Vango and I'm very dissapointed. We've got other Vango tents which is why we stayed with the brand. The dealer we bought from can't do much more having sent a replacement set of poles which is why I feel Vango should look into this.
