A sturdy and versatile 3 man tent for fun, festivals or youth expeditions.
Suitable for everyone from families on campsites, to youth groups on expedition, the Vango Omega 350 tent
has an extended porch and generous sleeping area but a comparatively low weight, which makes it versatile enough to cope with many different situations.
It's pitched all-in-one with the inner and flysheet together, and uses Vango's 'TBS II' Tension Band System, combining the webbing of TBS® with the external guying system for total stability even in high wind.
The simple style, colour coded Powerlite Alloy poles and O-ring guylines combined with the 'as-one' pitching method mean it's quick and simple to erect.
Reflective zip-pullers and webbing mean you'll be able to find it in the dark, or on a crowded site.
Rain gutter zip-covers, taped seams and Vango's 'Riser' groundsheet give you great protection from the elements, while the breathable inner, mesh ventilation and front flysheet vent ensure you're comfortable inside.
Inner storage pockets and a lantern hanging point mean you'll be able to keep your gear organized and your sleeping area ready to go. The 'O'-shaped inner door gives a touch more cosiness and adds protection.
The mesh door option and 'Crystal Clear' porch windows give you great visibility from inside the porch and allow ample light into the tent if you need it. Multiple flysheet doors let you choose your entry point according to prevailing wind, and can be opened as vents in warmer weather.
Pack it down into the supplied compact compression stuffsack for a convenient, highly portable tent!

Impressive, 27 September 2016
By IanB (Dorset)
I purchased three of these tents for a Scout group. The reduced price plus a discount for scouts made the price very attractive.
I have had many tents over the years and I am impressed with this one. There are nice touches in the design such as reflective guy lines, a tub shaped porch floor and pockets to store the tension band system when not in use. If set up properly the tent is very stable with a taught inner and outer.
The tent have three hoops and on one of the three tents, one pole section was torn along the point of interconnection and of course it broke completely in no time once under pressure. Gaffer tape and a tent peg as a splint held it together overnight and Go Outdoors have promised to send a replacement pole.
On another tent there was a small tear along a seam of the inner tent close to the zip. Not bad enough to compromise the tent, but as it would get worse we are fixing it ourselves, It looks like the stitching was too close the fabric edge and as the fabric frayed the seam came loose.
The pole and seam knock one star off a 5 star rating, though the nub is that I would buy again for either myself or the Scout group.
Awesome tent, 08 May 2016

Just used my new tent over the 1st cold and windy bank holiday weekend. Wind at times gusted a Force 7, there was some rain and the tent was solid as a rock!
The clever tension band system straps and pegged out guylines :-) worked well.
If you have ever put up a tent in pouring rain you will appreciate this tent pitching "as one" or "fly sheet first" as both options mean the inner tent stays dry.
If the tent is dry and clean when taking down leave the inner tent and living area ground sheet attached (assumes an under tent footprint has been used to keep tent clean) it will all roll up and fit in the tent bag with a little space to spare.
Tents of this price range always come with very naff pegs whatever the make (so it is no reason to mark the tent down). Ditch the pegs with the tent as they always bend and if transport weight is and issue get 5mm titanium hook shaped pegs for soft parts of tent and titanium v shaped titanium pegs for the guylines.
Light weight campers - This 5kg tent transports fine in an 80ltr strong wheelie bag which means you an hop on a train with it and leave the car at home. I don't drive and this is how I transport it.
DofE users could easily separate the tent and back pack with it.
Tent is very spacious inside and feels like a big tent, but in miniature.
Vango - please stitch some mini Velcro tabs to the living area ground sheet and the bottom of the tent for next years model.
Potential to become a very popular tent appealing to many different users.
Perfect for touring on motorbike, 23 April 2016
By Jo (Lowestoft)
We bought this tent when we started touring in Europe 4 years ago and the space that it provides far outweighs the niggles, which we have got around. Every time we have used it we have 'tweaked' what we take and have now solved the main problems that we have. I bought the footprint to go underneath which is also handy for finding best position for pitching and the pesky little twigs and stones that seem to find their way under the most inconvenient places. I bought the adventure tarp which not only solves the issuse of water coming in when you unzip the door in the rain but is also a nice extension for boots etc in the dry. We got over the issue of the gap between porch groundsheet and side of tent by taking bits of sticky back velcro it works a treat no draft or little lakes and just peels off when we move on. Overall we love this tent it has plenty of space for leathers and boots etc and the whole lot goes in our top box.
Promises plenty offers little, 08 April 2016

Vango's Omega 350 is a decent sized three person tent. I used it over the course of an 8 week trip across Austria, Italy and Croatia on a variety of terrains in hot sun, light rain and winds. Whilst I have no issue with the overall aesthetics and shape (initially the design of the tent was very attractive) the overall quality and build of the tent leaves something to be desired; I returned the tent after two months and was content with an 80% reimbursement. Pitching the tent was vexatious to say the least; the quality of the pegs and poles mean that even in moderately soft ground you'll be searching for a vice to bend them back in to shape before too long. Unless pitching on absolutely flush surfaces it is almost impossible to create a perfectly taut shape. This can obviously cause issues with drainage especially in damp weather. The overall ventilation of the tent is OK but I'm yet to be convinced by removable inners; whilst there is a mesh on the door to the sleeping compartment the vestibule is exposed, meaning the tent fills up wth creepies and bugs in no time at all. The water proofing is OK but again the detachable inner means that water will always find a way into the vestibule, especially if you are pitching on uneven ground or in lengthy grass. For the price, this isn't a bad tent; it's compact, simple and cheap; I can understand why it is DoE recommended. But if you're looking for something a little more comfortable and long lasting, I'd recommend spending a little more for a better quality tent.
Good tent- horrible clips, 01 April 2016
We bought this tent a couple of months ago, used it twice so far. For 2 people it is really spacious, you have plenty of room and it is really stable.
There is one thing though that we really don`t like about it, the clips. They are really difficult to use and we managed to break one already....My fingers are totally red and hurt by the time we build the tent up or by the time we unclip everything. That`s why we don`t even use the groundsheet in the packing area, we bought a separate one.
