Vango Helix 100 (2014)

£100.00

Tents are getting lighter, but the lightest often carry a whopping price tag. However some brands are making lightweight tents that are far more affordable – and the Helix 100 is the lightest and lowest-priced model in Vango’s new range. At £100 for a one-person tent weighing just 1573g, the Helix 100 should strongly appeal to weekend backpackers. But if ...

Vango Sabre 200 (2013)

£150.00

The Vango Sabre 200 is a new tent for 2013, and it has more about it than first impressions might suggest.

Vango Force Ten Helium 100 (2012)

£220.00

The F10 Helium 100 has won ‘Best Value’ awards from Trail in the past, but the 2012 version is even better. The tent is based around a single precurved transverse pole that slips through a sleeve in the outer, to create a side entry tunnel. There’s an additional vertical pole at each end to add extra headroom. There are now ...

Vango Force Ten Helium Superlite 100 2010

£230.00

A bit like the new coalition government, Vango’s plan for easing the burden of carrying a one-person tent is to strip out wasted weight. According to the manufacturer, everything that is good in the classic Vango Force Ten Helium is apparent in the new Helium Superlite, but you now have a new lighter groundsheet and inner tent. The result of ...

Vango Nitro 200 2009

£200.00

Vango has a wide range of low-priced tents that compete on virtually equal footing with those costing twice as much.

A weight of only 2300g coupled with good dimensions and that all-important price tag of £200 makes this a strong competitor.   DesignThe ...

Vango Equinox 350

£250.00

Like many Vango tents, this 4-person family tent is pitched outer-first which is ideal for the wet weather so often encountered in the UK. Three colour-coded poles slip easily through mesh sleeves around the outer, while ladder-lock adjusters make the tensioning easier. The inner tent is suspended inside and provides plenty of room. The porch area is huge at 220cm ...

Vango Colorado 600

£200.00

This family tent from Vango is huge, with a tall and spacious dome-shaped living area and tunnel extensions for sleeping compartments. It’s a bit fiddly to put up, but would make a wonderful base for longer trips. Plenty of windows, skylights and vents make it feel light and airy inside.
