A fully geodesic 3-man tent, the F10 XPD 3 has been developed from the knowledge and feedback we've gained over the past 50 years through working with adventurers and mountaineers on groundbreaking arctic explorations through to pioneering Himalayan expeditions. The self-supporting structure provides an excellent balance between weight and stability. Featured with inner first pitch, double vestibules, snow skirt and a durable flysheet fabric with the highest UV resistance of any Vango tent, all in at an impressive sub 4.5kg weight; The XPD tent sets the gold standard for expedition tents.
