Vango Cargo 65 (2012)

£38.00

Although the Vango Cargo 65 is the most affordable duffel in the line-up it’s not short of features. Its simple design comes with two solid grab handles at each end, two mid handles with a clasp and – most inventively – two stowable shoulder straps that allow you to carry the bag in the style of a rucksack. It’s nowhere ...

Vango Supernova 5000 2010

£90.00

The steam from my mug of morning tea drifted up through the unzipped doorway of my tent. The sun was rising over a perfect wild camping morning. When everything goes well, there is nothing more idyllic than waking from a good sleep high on the mountains. The problem is that the weatherman’s forecast is never that reliable. Knowing how much ...
