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.

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.

Wild Camping, 27 July 2014
By Andrew (Edinburgh)
I bought the tent for use as a standby for my large tent and I used this tent for wild camping in Scotland and the ease at which the tent went up amazed me (as a seasoned camper).

Good Points: After one practice it took about 5 minutes to get the tent pitched and ready for use, I decided to keep all the clips connected after my practice run as this would save time later and it did. it has a large interior for one person and you can easily fit all your walking equipment inside and if using it for two people it has a roomy porch area for use as extra storage, which you could cook in. It has enough ventilation and there was no trouble with condensation. It has a low profile so does not stand out in the countryside. I would recommend this tent for two people as you could share the weight, one person carrying this in the mountains would easily tire.

Downside: I would not recommend this tent for one person as it weighs more than you should carry and that's even after stripping down the spare guys, carry bag, porch mat and leaving one pole and other spares behind and I could not get the weight down to less than 3kgs, so far too much weight for one person to carry in the mountains. To walk up 2000 metres of height carrying this tent and all other equipment needed for a wild camp is really a drain on the energy and I would suggest using a lighter alternative if you wish to keep safe.

The pegs supplied are of lightweight in design (aluminium?) and are of no use and each one bent when putting them into the ground and this was good ground with no rocks but hard as it has been a good summer (2014), luckily I pitched the tent using only 7 pegs, but this would not stand up to the tests of wind. If considering the tent then you should look at changing the pegs to ones more robust that will last.

Conclusion: I never give out 5 stars as there is always room for improvement and I would have given this tent 4 stars but it is let down by the pegs which are somewhat useless (lightweight pegs for a tent that weighs over 3kgs?). If you are walking in pairs then this tent is ideal as it is roomy and easily erected and the weight can be shared and is not a visual impact on the hillside.

Hiking holiday in Scotland, 22 June 2014
By Ash
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
By Ashfire (Holmfirth)
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!
