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.

Great tent., 13 April 2015
By surfer dude
Being a regular surfer, i camp a lot this time is simple to put up but is more of a one man ten than two but stands up to wind and rain brilliantly. Takes 15 minutes to put, the inside shell takes a bit of practice with the straps to make the most space but I got this in a sale and its great for me

Light, small, 1-man, 23 February 2015
By SFTrooper (Nottingham)
Pros: light, packs small with compression strap outer bagl, repair kit inside, fly sheet, minimal condensation, 1 man tent if you're 6'2" tall (or 2 man if you're 5'6"), coped with desert, Brecon, Lakes and DoE abuse
Cons: light material vulnerable to snags/sharp instruments, pegs are sub-standard, minimal gap between inner & outer for stowing wet kit.
Recommended for the price but pack your rucksack well or suffer the consequences. No quality issues with mine - 48 months and still going!

Amazing value, 28 January 2015
By Firefly
I have the 2013 version and it is a very good tent, especially for the money. So far I have used it to camp in Scotland and the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia and it has seen it's share of rain and wind and has proven itself capable of dealing with this very well.

Of course, this tent is a bit heavier than similar but much more expensive tents, so it's your choice if a few hundred grams of weight savings is worth the extra money.

I have found one (minor) problem with this tent. On very cold nights when you have a lot of condensation on the inside of the outer tent, it sometimes drips through the ventilation mesh on the foot end of the tent so in the morning you might find a few drops of water inside the tent at the foot end.

Undersized Junk, 26 September 2014
By NeptuneUK (Bristol)
Firstly this is NOT a two person tent, at best it's for 1 person with a bit of kit.

The manufacture is of a poor quality. Mine have snagged guy lines right out of the carry sack and after 1 night the seams on the inner were coming apart.


One the upside it is quick to erect, but probably will fall apart even quicker.

My home for 6 months, 02 August 2014
By Laura
This tent has a lot of sentimental value to me because I lived in it for the better part of 6 months during a backpacking trip across America and Europe. I hitchhiked every day, slept in this thing every night- and it held up fantastic. It's incredibly sturdy, and put many other tents I saw to shame in that area. In desert storms that had £300+ tents flapping around like laundry, this one was almost rigid. It took on rainstorms, typhoons, snow and even a fully grown deer running into it at flat speed.
It was SO easy to set up- I could get it done in 60 seconds flat (after insane practice). Also easy to put away so long as you're somewhat tactical about it. It's the perfect amount of space for ONE person and their gear. I got my enormous backpack in there with me each night. 2 people if you're absolutely desperate and the weather isn't too bad, because you'll each be pressed against the sides, that's a guarantee.
It's stealthily low to the ground and a good colour for wild camping, which I was doing almost every night. It's tent pegs are a liiiiittle bit on the crap side so I encourage you to buy spares.
I wouldn't recommend for tall people. I'm 5ft 6 and I was comfortable, but I had a friend who was 6ft 2 stay in it and had his feet pressed into the bottom. This thing absorbs heat like crazy- good for cold weather, not so great for hot. It's also wickedly compact- great for backpacking- but not necessarily very light. The weight was the only issue I had.
Overall- amazing little tent. Perfect for solo travellers on long haul trips. I'll happily keep using it until it's nothing but holes.
