It's hard to find high-quality tents that meet our demanding ethical standings, so much of the super high-end camping gear out there uses materials or production methods that harm the beautiful natural environments we want to be adventuring in - it's the ugly irony of the outdoors industry.
So after years of fruitless searching we're happy to now be stocking Vaude tents - the top of the range Invenio is manufactured to their very exacting Green shape manufacturing standards and from materials that are designed to have an extra long lifespan.
And even better, the Invenio has all the well thought out little features we've come to look for in a tent - dual entrances so you don't have to climb over your companion to get in and out at night, a natty construction that means your tent doesn't get wet inside when you're putting it up in the rain (take note MSR!) and high head space so you don't feel like your trapped in cave on rainy nights where being outside is impossible.
This is the three-man version of the best selling Invenio 2UL, its tent is a little too heavy to be called ultralight weight (i.e. its more than a tarp and some fishing line), but is perfect for those of us who want a little more space to stretch out in or are travelling with a dog.
It's designed to be warm and dry when pitched in the snow and has enough ventilation for those hot stuffy summer nights. A real do everything tent, that means you don't have to sacrifice comfort for weight.

We are a member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) and we are committed to continuously improve working conditions at all of our production facilities. We monitor these conditions regularly. VAUDE has achieved leader status, the highest status of FWF membership.
With our Green Shape label, we offer functional, environmentally-friendly products made from sustainable materials. They are manufactured under fair working conditions along the entire supply chain. The criteria for the label are strict and transparent. They are under constant review and cover the entire lifecycle of the product from design, through production, care and maintenance, to repair and the product’s end of life.
VAUDE products bearing the Eco Finish been waterproofed in an environmentally-friendly way without fluorocarbons (PFC). PFCs are part of a group of chemical compounds which are used to waterproof the outer layer of many outdoor products. They have come under criticism for being non-biodegradable, bioaccumulative and toxic, and suspected of being harmful to health. VAUDE has made a clear commitment to completely renouncing PFCs.
The VAUDE label "PVC-free" means that this product is manufactured 100% free of PVC (polyvinyl choride). PVC largely contains plasticizers (phthalates) that are considered to be harmful to your health.
