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.
There are 2 versions of this tent available, the 2013 version in Green/Black and the 2014 version in 'Cactus' Green. The 2014 version has been updated with 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.
- 2013 weight = 2.14kg
- 2014 weight = 2.3kg

Vango Banshee 200 Tent, 21 January 2014
By smiler84089 (Middlesbrough)
A great one man tent that is easily erected and light enough to be carried as part of a 20kg back pack.
I am 6'1" tall and I have to be careful when sitting up not to catch the roof of the inner pod as that is where condensation can form in colder seasons.
There is enough space for myself and a 75ltr pack for overnight camping and space for your boots between the inner pod and the outer flysheet.
It is really easy to pack away and the inner pod clips into place.
All in all a superb one man tent.
The Jackels lair..!!, 30 December 2013
By the jackel (edinburgh)
The jackel is an wild Animal with an reputation for getting into confined spaces and the Vango Banshee 200 is its favoured lair..With excellent low profile and an minimal footprint that really suits the Jackels style of camping..Some heads were turned summer beach camping last year with the stunning little green Banshee an hit with the sunseekers..but things can get overheated on popular lothian beaches so the Jackel made for some headland spot over in Fife with strong winds and waves the TBS and alloy poles prove as no gimmick and both the Jackel and local wildlife The Seals! pitched easily in gale force..Its light weight low cost strong and looks good too..!
Ideal lightweight tent for the price, 26 November 2013
By Pete (Hinckley)
I've used this for 14 days now and found it a perfect lightweight tent for the price. Its ideal for one man and a dog. A small downside is the hooks that fasten the bottom of the inner to the outer tent. They are very difficult to unfasten especially with frozen fingers.
