A lightweight, packable and robust tent, comfortable for one person but room for two if needed.
The Vango Tempest 200 is a lightweight, roomy and sturdily constructed tent, suitable for quick camping in fair or trying conditions.
This 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

Tempest 200, 02 September 2015
By Tim (Derby)
I was quite favourably impressed with this tent, it's fairly quick and easy to pitch but like any other tent, I'd recommend practicing pitching it in your garden first. I didn't but it didn't take much figuring out. The all in one pitching makes things a lot easier too. At 2.75kg it's a reasonable weight for the size of the tent and the price.
It's big enough for two blokes as the porch is big enough to stash loads of gear and provides plenty of space for cooking, plus the porch groundsheet is a real bonus and something you don't get in a lot of other tents. As a solo tent it would be luxurious.
The tensioning system is a good feature, but you only need to use this in very high winds.
I've given it four stars because one of the internal fastening rings for the inner tent was missing, looks like it had just been missed completely in the manufacturing process. Not a big deal, but not what you'd expect from Vango. To be fair, their after sales support is really good and they supplied the missing part straight away.
Use as a Festival Tent, 29 June 2015

Great little tent, just taken it to Glastonbury for a week. It was a last minute purchase to replace my old Vango which was significantly heavier and I wanted to keep my pack as light as possible. This meant I didn't even practice pitching it before I got there, but it's incredibly easy and straight forward.
Didn't have too much trouble with the tension system as it's fairly easy to get to grips with and it meant I didn't need to peg any guy ropes down at all (great when other festival goers are stomping through!).
Given the fair weather conditions, it didn't receive too much of a bashing from the weather but excellent when it did rain. Really sturdy on the tension system alone so wind wasn't a problem.
Only complaint was I'd love it to have been a tiny bit taller, but obviously for a tent this size it's to be expected. Still was able to sit up in it, get changed, etc. Comfortably fit me, my bag and Thermarest mattress in, but can't say I'd recommend it for two person use.
All round great tent, really impressed with it!
Vango - always excellent, 16 May 2015
By Wendy K
Our first (Vango) tent (1973) was, along with the other Vangos on site, the only tent standing after a huge storm on Wastwater. It kept continuous rain out for 12 days. This is another excellent product with many thoughtful features. Outer goes up easily and protects you as you put up the inner. Enough room for 2 and space for clothes etc at the top . Modern addition - netting storage along sides for phone, ipad, etc. Packs up small and lightweight, so ideal for walkers and cyclists.
Great but too small, 22 March 2015
By Kim (Gloucester)
I brought this tent for long hiking trips and it was perfect in every way but one. I couldn't sit up in it! I'm not a particularly tall person either! Everything else about the tent was perfect as it was light and easy to put up but I just couldn't do anything in it. It was easier getting changed outside in the wind instead on in the tent!
Brilliant, as you would expect from Vango, 29 September 2014
By Beej (Stourbridge, West Midlands)
I use this for motorsport marshaling so it sees some of the worst UK weather at the UKs race tracks.
It is brilliant, VERY easy to pitch, took me less than 15 minutes first time out the bag, I can leave the inner attached so it's even quicker to pitch and take down now.
It handles the wind very well and also the rain. The internal support straps mean that it doesn't move at all in the wind but is low enough for that not to matter.
Not for 2 people I would say but more than enough space for 1 on their own.
Recommended. My advice if you are buying a tent is buy the Vango designed for your needs. You won't get a better tent and the quality is amazing.
