A lightweight, packable and robust tent for two adventurers.
The Vango Tempest 200 is a lightweight, roomy and sturdily constructed tent, suitable for quick camping in fair or trying conditions.
There are 2 versions of this tent available, the 2013 version in Pine/Black (Green/Black) and the 2014 version in 'Cactus' Green. The 2014 version has a re-designed single flysheet door, to provide a greater porch area for gear storage or cooking.
The waterproof Protex HC polyester outer, breathable inner with part-mesh door and Venturi Vent System all combine to keep you comfortable inside. Reflective webbing and colour-coded Powerlite alloy poles make it simple to pitch and easy to find, and the multi-function door (2013 version) can be opened to the left or right, or even rolled away completely for full porch access.
The unique 'TBS II' internal bracing system means the tent will stay reassuringly stable in harsh weather, with the completely waterproof polyester inner groundsheet will act like a bathtub even if the ground around you starts turning into a stream.
The whole thing packs easily and quickly into a small compression stuffsack, and comes with a repair kit should you have any mishaps.
- 2013: pack size = 39cm x ø15cm, weight = 2.9kg
- 2014: pack size = 43cm x ø15cm, weight = 2.78kg

Hiking holiday in Scotland, 22 June 2014
I took this tent on a 6 night hiking trip in Scotland. The weather was as you can expect (rainy!). The tent performed amazingly and it fit two adults comfortably.
It was even easy to put up in the middle of the night after a full day hiking. We did have a small torch, but still.
It stood up well, 21 May 2014

Had a great weekend in one of these the other week. It was chucking it down, the ground was soaked and squelchy, the wind was blowing severely and it was pretty grim, However i stayed nice and warm and dry all weekend. The morning after the second night there were a few patches or water on the inner, I'm talking maybe 1 or 2 drips and i think these were most likely dew. My friends tent collapsed in the wind after his poles broke, another had some water ingress, but i was happy. Would recommend the tent and cant wait to use it again!

Great little tent, purchased for touring Europe on bike and had first trip this weekend. Tent stood up well against the driving wind and rain and was surprisingly warm on the frosty starts. I would however call it a one man tent with room for gear.
As waterproof as a tea bag, 22 March 2014

First time using this was a dry weekend in Scarborough, didn't rain at all but ground was damp from earlier rain. Water seeped up through groundsheet within 20 mins and soaked everything inside. One cold, wet and sleepless night followed. Would NOT recommend this tent.
great tent, great price., 26 December 2013

It has withstood high winds and heavy rains.
If you zip it all up you'll get slight condensation so open the vent in the door slightly and you'll be fine.
