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!

No complaints here!, 30 August 2014
By basstromman (Chelmsford)
We needed a tent to replace our much loved Khyam ridge-dome igloo and after much searching plumped for this. I don't back pack but I needed a small package size to allow for packing in a Mazda MX-5 along with other camping chattels, driver and passenger. The storage area was a bonus too. I was happy to pay for niceties such as aluminium poles and decent fly sheet fabric. The tent is a doodle to pitch. The clips for bedroom floor and ground sheet are a bit of a faff but nothing too bad though. Can't complain about water ingress - perfect on what was a very wet bank holiday Monday! No water came in when doors were opened - just give the tent a shake before unzipping! Yes, the ground sheet is a tad thin but this is a light weight tent! The clue is in the spec! I've now got a footprint for the next time the tent goes out. Not sure about the practicality of the windows really but I suppose they do let a bit more light in. Overall - very pleased with this tent although it remains to be seen if it has a life as long as my Khyam!
I love this tent, 13 August 2014

I have used this tent a few times now in all weathers and it has been great, will sleep two and a dog easy. It would struggle with three. Plenty of storage spaces great tent
A little disappointed, 06 August 2014
By cowwhisperer (Dorset)
I'm disappointed because I spent ages deciding on a new tent and this doesn't quite live up to expectations, although it has generally performed well so far in mainly good weather. Positives are that it's easy to pitch and roomy, and it seems pretty stable in strong winds. I bought it because I was tired of sharing my small 2 man tent with my dog and the huge porch on this is ideal for dealing with a wet dog and keeping wet gear out of the sleeping compartment. I also like that there's room enough to cook in the porch in bad weather without fear of burning the tent down. This tent seems quite flimsily made compared to my robens small dreamer and I miss the flourescent guy lines which that had, having tripped over the guy lines on this tent in the dark more than once. Considering the cost I think they could have added small details like this and put fly screens on both doors. On a hot evening you want both doors open for ventilation so have to choose between a through flow of air and a tent full of flies or being too hot. I'd happily sacrifice the windows which aren't needed. There is quite a big gap under the flysheet which I suspect would let rain blow into the porch in heavy rain. The porch groundsheet is pretty useless; flimsy and fiddly to attach. It needs to overlap with the flysheet on the door sides to keep water out. I use a big tarp instead which gives the inner tent something to sit on as well as being wide enough to fold up the edges inside the flysheet in wet weather. A few design features seem a bit odd like the end guy lines being attached to the ventilation flap which doesn't seem like the strongest point to attach them to. Also it means you can't adjust the ventilation. The inner tent is very saggy so if 3 people were sleeping in it someone would have a face full of fabric. Not a problem with 1 or 2 people as bags can go at the back. The groundsheet in it is quite flimsy too so if weight isn't an issue it's worth having another inside it as well as underneath. The tent is very lightweight for it's size so would make a great backpacking tent for 2 or 3 people. The pegs are useless on anything but soft ground so it's worth taking some more robust ones at least for the main guy lines. So, not a bad tent and it has some good features but it doesn't quite have the quality I'd expected from Vango. One of the door ties has snapped already which isn't great. I've given it 4 stars because 3 seemed a little harsh, but given the option I'd give it 3.5.
Brilliant Tent, 10 June 2014
By WalterM (Beckenham)
Got this for weekend trips. Very roomy for one and be good for two. Easy to set up on your own even in the wind. Very sturdy, put up with gales over a weekend in Snowdon. Got a basic 2x3 tarp from B&Q to use as a base bedroom area following reading other reviews. Great idea and worked well. Excellent value for money.
Great quality and value, 10 June 2014

I bought this tent as a roomy quick-getaway tent for one or two people for weekends. The quality of the flysheet and poles are outstanding and have withstood some of the extreme weather that has hit in the last few days. It was simple to put up by myself, and taking it down was even easier as it was possible to leave the bedroom in situ. The porch is roomy enough for boxes of kit and tall enough to sit in a chair, which makes for comfort. Other good features include a mesh door on one of the side doors, and the tension band system which gives the poles greater stability in high winds but tucks away in little pockets when not needed. The only wee niggle is that the groundsheet is quite thin and I added in the footprint groundsheet to protect the whole tent and ensure that it is clean and dry for packing. Of course a thicker GS would have bumped up the pack size and weight, so its not really a problem. All in all this tent is great quality and I bought it during the Bank Holiday discount sale at Go Outdoors so the price was unbeatable too.
