    I don't know about this model but I have a Vango tent and think it represents very good value for money and it is well made. Comes with lots of spare parts too.

    You might want to look at how well the seams are sealed around the 'roof light' though.

    If it wasn't for the rain in our lives there would be no rivers. X 2

    Haven't owned any Vanga tents but everytime I see one pitched, it's tight, sheds water & high winds well and i never hear a bad word said against them.

    May all your winds be gentle. And for ww - May it rain the night before.

    Interesting entry system.

    And no, I've never owned anything that modern looking.

    Just to buck a trend....

    I owned a Vango for about 3 weeks. It was appallingly badly made. I sent it back and bought a Terra Nova instead. When I was working for Nevisport they stopped ranging them because of the QC issues.

    Having said that, I do believe they've raised their game back to where the reputation demands.

    It was like that when I got here...

    hi, we own a vango tent and would highly recomend it. we camped in all the bad weather last year and on one weekend we were at shell island right on the edge of a cliff.. we had tornado like conditions and people were skipping there tents and going home.the skip was full with broken and battered tents of all kinds.. . we stayed put for 3 nights and four days i seem to remember. one of the days saw the end of the tent bowing down in the wind to hit the blow up matress we had. the table we had inside kept lifting off the ground. i didnt want to leave the tent at all that weekend but in the end we went for a pub dinner and came back thinking our tent would of gone over the cliff, but no, it was still there ,blowing in the wind..it was a very scary weekend, but each morning we emerged from the tent unharmed and the tent still looking like new..


    on another weekend that we camped we had our gazebo blow right over our vango tent at 6am, we saw it tumble over our tent, right over the top of it..legs flying everywhere.. the tent stayed intact without any rips..

    its survived gales, thunderstorms, wind, rain, sun and tornado like conditions..we will be using it this year also
