5 Reviews of the Iris 600

By: JONEAA  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2015   Rating: 

Bought this tents two years ago it's has lasted well. It is well worth the price. I highly recommend it for families as it has plenty of space for sleeping and a large seating area. I would recommend buying the frond awning as it creates some shade when sitting outside. Buy a spare pole as I found that after a year the poles weakened a bit so we had to replace one.

We bought our Vango Iris 600 to replace an old Coleman tent we'd had for 7 years which was getting a bit tired. The Iris is much easier and quicker to put up with only 3 poles being a tunnel tent. It's lighter in weight and much cosier inside as our old one was a bit dark, the lime green colour is much friendlier and calm.

The bedrooms have a special lining with makes that part darker while the living area is light and spacious. I particularly like having the choice of using a side door instead of just a front or back door. The internal pockets are positioned perfectly for using for torches and odd bits and bobs, and there are plenty of them. I also like the tuck away pockets for the zipped doors, as makes things very tidy and less likely to get ripped.

Ventilation is also very good with extra vents in various places that can be closed or left open as needed. We haven't had to use the tension bands yet although we did put them up once when the forecast was for 30mph gusts during the day when we were out and the tent was still standing when we returned to it so it must be ok.

Windows are very clear to see out of, hardly fuzzy at all so you can enjoy a view from the privacy of the living space. Plenty of headroom to walk upright as well as plenty of space for luggage, chairs and tables etc. A family of four could comfortably sit around a table to eat inside if needed. I'm sure you could fit 6 adults in the sleeping areas but it'd be a bit of a squash.

The inner tent sleeping area has a separate divider to hang up if you want it, or not. I only realised it had high visibility guy ropes when I was comparing them to some extra luminous yellow guys I had bought just incase. They show up very well under torch light so you're much less likely to trip over them in the dark.

Actually love this tent, and it's already been on 8 trips with us in 9 months. Only issue was our own fault and ripped a small hole in the groundsheet by accidentally leaving a peg sticking up underneath the tent. We've only had to replace one split pole so far, still our fault for rushing the tensioning of the tent correctly when we erected it one time. It's easy to order replacement poles from Vango as they are standard sizes.

An added bonus is the option of buying the Vango extension for this tent but at 175 seems a bit steep for an awning that only adds one room, although if you are a family of six, or going on a week or more abroad it'd be worth it.

Bought this tent at the end of 2015 it had been a display model in the shop and the price was keen. We didn't get the opportunity have a trial run with it prior to our trip to France. This is our fourth tent to own. I found this tent very easy to erect, about fifteen to twenty minutes, I did not have trouble with the poles, for the two of us it was plenty spacious, it has mighty ventilation, and with the big windows for great views. This tent is easily packed away. In my opinion this is a great tent and I am looking forward to a great summer.

We have a Kampa Tenby 8 which is absolutely superb but is really bulky and heavy so we looked for something a bit more compact for shorter breaks. This tent is really spacious for the packed size/weight. It is a bit tricky to erect, surprisingly, compared to the Tenby; there's definitely a sequence to be followed. We haven't had massively challenging conditions but it stood up to thunderstorms well. The accommodation is very spacious for four and the nick-nack storage is very useful. It seems to be pretty well made for the price.

We bought this tent to replace an old one that we found extremely difficult to pitch. What a difference! The isis v 600 is an absolute dream to pitch, the built in groundsheet and bedrooms pod save oodles of time. We haven't camped in wind yet, but no doubt the tension band system will be invaluable. I wasn't sure of the colour from the pictures, but once up it looks fab and blends in to the campsite nicely.

The vents ensure that condensation isn't a problem and the fly nets on the doors keep the bugs out whilst letting lots of light in.

I would recommend the footprint to go with it, this means you don't have to clean up a grubby tent when pitching in the wet, you just have to deal with the footprint when you get home, which is much more convenient.

Packing away is just as easy, remove the poles, fold, roll and away you go. The bag is 10% bigger so no squishing and squeezing to try and get it back in.

All in all a fantastic tent - A* to Vango for this one.
