Inflatable tents became popular a few years ago when Heimplanet first introduced The Cave. With its striking design and rigidity, The Cave opened the way to many other manufacturers to look into inflatable tents as a suitable product for recreational use. This doesn’t mean The Cave is the best inflatable tent available but it certainly was a trigger for others to develop their own. There are now many manufacturers providing great inflatable tents at various prices and sizes. This includes Vango, one of the leading tent company with its Vango Airbeam Tents.
So what’s the best inflatable tent?
It’s a jungle out there, with a large selection of tents at various prices, sizes with lots of different features. It can get tricky to recognise real quality over what could be a total waste of your money. That said, the most expensive tents are not always the best, and vice-versa. Take the Kelty Mach 6 for instance. This is a reasonably priced inflatable tent, that gets a decent amount of good reviews.
Kelty is not a very well known brand in the UK and this can put some people off. So if you’re after a company you know and trust, Vango is always a good option. The Vango AirBeam Inspire 600 has won the Best Inflatable Tent award in 2015! Camping Magazine chose the Inspire as it is a fantastic tent for those who require a great internal living area combined with a spacious covered external space. In reality, the design and built quality apply to the whole range of Vango Airbeam Tents. The Vango Odyssey Airbeam 500 and 600 were our best sellers last year.

If you are here, you should have already decided how many person your tent is for. Be it a large 6 man inflatable tent to spend time comfortably with your family in a campsite. Or a smaller, lighter and very easy to setup 2 man tent to take with you in the middle of nowhere in Scotland and beyond…
