Vango Tents - A History
by: Nick Hurst

Vango have been producing tents since their beginning in 1963 in West Scotland. The company name of Vango is an anagram of Govan, the area in Glasgow where they first started. Vango has become one of the world’s leading tent manufacturers by listening and responding to what outdoor enthusiasts want and need to enjoy their adventures outside. Part of the AMG group, Vango have won awards for their innovative sleeping bags and introduced their easy to pitch weekend tents knowing that quick get-a-ways are more likely the easier it is to set up and pack down.

Vango have built on their traditional experience of quality and reliability by continuing to innovate and totally understand that style shouldn’t be compromised for comfort and easy pitching. The value of easy pitch tents should never be under-estimated as it allows you more time to enjoy the rest of your adventure. Plus there is the benefit of stress-free pitching which keeps you on a good foot and in a good mood when you may be tired after travelling and just want to get to bed. Or maybe it’s the morning and you want to be set up to go out for the day with peace of mind that your tent is pitched for when you get back. The Vango Dart 200 is a two person ‘pop-up’ dome tent that is both easy to pitch and easy to pack down again. With festival-goers in mind, that might be pitched closer together than they would normally prefer, the Vango Dart 200 is made from fire retardant fabrics that reduces the chances of it being ignited by naked flames and also has reflective webbing, th!

us making it easier to find at night or when the weather turns bad. Weighing less than a bag of sugar, this durable Vango Tent also makes a good back-packers companion. Although heavier at 3.6 kilos, another tent ideal for festivals is the roomy Vango Alpha 250 that includes pre-attached guylines with guy tidies.

A camping tent that would work well for base camping is the Vango Equinox 450 tent. A four person tent from the Vango lightweight range, the Vango Equinox 450 tent weighs 6.7kg and is recommended by Vango as suitable for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Quality features such as guyline Line-Lok runners, colour coded poles and easy feed pole openings ensure this tent can be pitched in 15 minutes. Additional features include large inbuilt storage pockets for easy house keeping organisation, a compression sack and a tent repair kit, that you are not really expected to need but is there in case you’re miles from anywhere and the unexpected happens.

These little touches have come about by Vango spending time investigating what they can do to make your outdoor adventures the best they can be. Whether you’re a festival fan, a fair-weather camper, like wild weekends away or are planning your next family holiday, Vango want to help you get closer to the great outdoors and have designed and tested a range of tents to suit your needs.
