Vango Ultralight 200

This is a very unusual design of 2-person sub-2kg tent yet it benefits from incredible stability and a surprising amount of living space. It is a single-skin tent that pitches far more easily than appearances would suggest. Once erected, the external door gives direct access to the inner living area, as there is no porch. The headroom easily allows two to sit up and just above your head are two large air vents that encourage airflow to control the condensation inside the tent. For extra stability there is Vango’s well tried and tested Tension Band System, in this case a lightweight version, that places internal guylines across the inner. There is a small porch at one end that could be used to stow boots or a stove. But the pegs are very short, which limits their use to good grassy flat pitches. This is a single-skin tent, so even with good airflow some condensation is possible in some conditions. As there is no porch gear storage and cooking options are very limited.

Verdict Buy it if you want a very stable, lightweight tent for use in windy rather than wet conditions where the lack of a porch will be less of an issue.
