Seems a good deal, don't really know all that much about tents but only 3,000mm HH seems quite low, my quiksilver jacket is 10,000mm HH.

Is 3000mm HH enough to keep dry inside a tent during heavy downpour?

mm HH (milimeter hydrostatic head) is dependent not just on overall vertical volume of water but PSI (lbs per square inch). The reason your jacket has a much higher mm HH is because you yourself physically exert more PSI than you would in a tent, since you're in direct contact with the jacket and not the tent. They're incomparable values because they have different required performance for their intended purpose. So therefore you shouldn't compare mm HH values between clothing and tents.

3000mm is more than adequate for a tent in UK weather. This is a great price for a 5 man Vango with canopy, etc...
Thanks for the advice guys, much appreciated, sounds like 3,000mm HH should be ok then.
Good value tent from a good mid range tent maker. People who think this kind of tent is expensive don't appreciate how much even decent quality stuff costs never mind high quality.
I could be wrong but I think this is the same model: youtube.com/wat…UWU

I think it's unlikely that he will be able to do that because a) it's not available cheaper elsewhere and b) he's a complete numpty.
In case anyone's still looking for this, or similar, here's a 6 man version @ £179.95 plus £3.99 delivery

Got to hold hands up and accept that.

Was confusing with the Carrera 500 by Vango, which looks very similar at first glance, available at Millets currently for £150. Footprint on sale there too for only £12 which might be of use to someone.
