An ultra-light 2 man tent that's ideal for trekking and backpacking in any conditions.
Ideal for trekking and backpacking through any conditions, the Vango Banshee 200 is a reliable shelter with a handy porch area for cooking and storage.
Updated from previous versions, it has a lower silhouette and a door on each side, giving you dual access and extra storage if you need it.
The tent can be pitched either all as one, or flysheet first, depending on the conditions you're in.
The flysheet is fire-retardant Protex HC polyester with a hydrostatic head of 5000, with taped seams for extra protection and reflective webbing and zip pullers to help you find it in adverse conditions.
Handy features like O-ring guylines and colour-coded Powerlite alloy poles make pitching the tent simple, easy and quick. The inner groundsheet is completely waterproof polyester, and the breathable fabric inner and mesh ventilation ensure a comfortable sleeping area, with a lantern hanging point if needed and storage under the door. The whole thing packs easily into a compression stuffsack, and comes with a repair kit for emergencies.
In drier climates, you could use the tent without the fly to be even more comfortable.

Good Tent but Design Flaws, 26 January 2016
By nzland (New Zealand)
As per the bulk of the reviews a good tent.
However a couple of flaws (1st easy to rectify)
1) The inner tent zip starts at the bottom - to the back and then up. This is just annoying as it means opening the whole panel up everytime. If it started at the top front it would be easy to nip in and out (+ close the outer zip) via a slot without letting bugs in! (SIMPLE VANGO PEOPLE!)
2) If you get condensation under the fly this runs down to the lower end of the tent where the rib to which the inner tent is attached causes it all to run onto the end of the inner. Consequently you will always end up with the end of your sleeping bag wet (BAD!) ..not good for extended trips is tough conditions.

The plus points for this tent are firstly it's very quick and easy to pitch, it's definitely rainproof and very stable in windy conditions. The manufacturing quality is as good as you would expect from this tried and trusted company.
The downside is it's small, no way will this tent accommodate two people with all their gear. It's OK for solo use though.
The headroom isn't great, I'm 5'9" but if I was taller sitting upright might be an issue. The porch is just big enough for 1 medium to large rucksack and a pair of boots but there's no groundsheet to keep them of wet ground.
OK as a solo tent if you're not too tall, so you can stash all your gear inside with you. For a few extra quid the Tempest 200 if a better buy.

Have only recently received the tent.After assembly and 4 trial setups ,I am very pleased with ease and speed of setup.Very quick and easy even in rain.This tent took 4.25 lbs off my back when compared with my old one.This is huge folks.The tent is really only a one person tent as many others have said but that's all I need unless the gf comes along and it;s still all I need.Like just fine so far,just waiting for a new sleep pad to take another trip.I see no probs.with this tent

Nice little tent but not really big enough for 2 adults unless you are both very good friends , under 6 ft , very slim with no equipment . I am 6 ' 4 " and the tent sits on my face when i lay flat on my back . All in all it kept me dry after 2 camping trips both with quite a lot of rain but it does feel claustrophobic and i can't sit up in it .

Brought one of these little tents with my partner last year to take on a backpacking trip round Europe, certainly a good little investment, really light and was perfect for strapping to the bottom of our backpacks, super easy and quick to put up, only 2 poles! Was a little bit of a squeeze inside with the both of us, and our two large backpacks with a months worth of supplies, however as other have said, perfect for the lone camper or for those on casual pursuits. I will note I have used this casually since and it is impossible to fit a double air bed etc in.
