A lightweight, packable and sturdy 3 man tent.
The Vango Tempest 300
is a lightweight, roomy and sturdily constructed tent, suitable for any quick camping, in fair or harsh conditions.
Its 2014 redesign gave it a single flysheet door, to provide a greater porch area for gear storage or cooking.
Protex HC polyester flysheet, breathable inner with part-mesh door, and Venturi Vent System keep you comfortable inside. Reflective webbing and colour-coded Powerlite alloy poles make the tent simple to pitch and easy to find.
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.

Amazing tent, 14 June 2016
By Tes (Congleton)
I love this tent! We originally got it to take when we went camping on the motorbikes as the little porch area is great for storing bulky leathers.
One weekend we went camping it rained for 2 days solidly. There wasn't a single leak in the tent I'm so glad that we went with this one and not one of the cheaper products.
We've had this tent for years now and it's still going strong and seems though we don't do anything to prolong the life of tents I'm really impressed with this.
It's a weird tent to put up the first time you do it, especially if you try it alone, but it's pretty simple except one pole needs a bit of 'encouraging' to get in. Even with that I would still give this 5 stars.

My girlfriend and I are travelling around France, Italy, Denmark, Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland. So far, we have slept in it for every night for 7 weeks in France. It has been great for us! Can set it up quickly and pack it fairly quickly too. I love the you set it up from the outside first. It's rained heavy on us and hasn't leaked. We had 2 nights of wind gust up to 80kmph And our tent seemed to stand the best in the wind compared to everyone else's on site.
THE CONS - the inside of the tent is orange. Now I like my sleep. But if you get any bit of sunlight on your tent, it illuminates the whole inside of the tent and forces you to wake up unless I have something covering my eyes. I ABSOLUTELY hate the colour on the inside. Why not make it a darker colour??
Also, it gets hot in the tent sometimes. It conserves the heat inside (which made me assume because it's an English tent that this is a winter tent and not a summer tent), which can get really hot and they only have this little fly screen inside at the top for a bit of fresh air. Why not make it a fly screen for the whole door?? Most tents I know have it for the whole door?
Anyways overall I do like it a lot! But just not for summer. I guess that's my fault on my behalf as I'm assuming because it's English, it's for English weather. Just change the colour on the inside to a darker colour so we can get to sleep and I'll be happy :)
Very good tent, 28 May 2015
I bought my Tempest 300 in the spring of 2011 and since then I have lived a total of 30 weeks (yes, that's weeks!) in this tent. It has served me very well.
The tent has been used for car-camping in the UK, mainly Scotland, and has seen a lot bad weather. Very strong winds and rain, yet it has never leaked.
However, it did snap the main front arc once in stormy wind. The tent didn't collapse because the sleeve kept the pole in place so I only noticed it when I stepped out of the tent the next morning. I replaced that section of the pole and kept on camping.
Later during it's lifetime I have had to replace other sections of the poles because they developed hair cracks at the joints. However, I don't think this is unreasonable to expect after so much use in sometimes very bad weather. Aluminium poles will eventually suffer from metal fatigue. I have had the same experience with another tent that I have used extensively.
I like the low profile of the tent that makes it cope well with strong winds. I also like the porch area that is just big enough to be able to cook under cover when it rains.
After 30 weeks exposure to the elements the colours of my tent have really faded now and the fabric is starting to decay so it will certainly not last another 30 weeks. I'm now considering whether to buy the same tent again or to use it for one more season.
Vango Tempest 300 - 10 out of 10, 12 May 2015
By Jolly (Sheffield)
Just bought one of these and it got tested in the Lakes over the weekend (2nd weekend in May (i.e. it throw it down). Very impressed with the tent for the following reasons. 1) Simple and quick to pitch: first time, 10 minutes in the dark with driving rain 2) Very stable and doesn’t move: blow a gale in the night.
It also has some nice touches to show this tent has been well worked out 1) instructions sown into the stuff sack, which also has compression straps 2) pocket in the side to tuck the flysheet out of the way. 3) Porch ground sheet 4) excellent tensioning system to guide ropes. 5) Velco straps to keep guide ropes out of the way when not in use / striking tent. 6) Colour coded poles for ease in pitching.
I can see why it’s on the D of E list having now used it.
Hope this has been on some use.
very impressive tent., 11 May 2015

So I toyed between the 200 and 300 model and in the ended opted for the 300 as it was only £15 more and glad I did.
With no instructions (couldn't find any) I put the tent up on my own in about 15 minutes. The poles are colour coded to little tags of the same colour on the tent. Made a few mistakes attaching the inside but like the clip mechanism for the lower parts of the inner.
The inside is spacious and big enough for two adults with gear. Decent sized porch, very lightweight poles, and stood up to a night of wind and rain. Felt very safe and in high wind the tent was hardly moving.
I brought a cheap tent last year and learnt that it's better to spend a bit more and get a quality tent like this.
Looking forward to the next outing in it next month.
