WIN a Vango Zenith 2-person tent!
Vango tents have one of the most impressive heritages of any outdoor brand, stretching back to the legendary Force Ten Mark 5 tents used in explorations all around the world, and including the great British Everest expeditions of the 70s.
Today they produce a superb range of models, ranging from the toughest mountain tents to the lightest backpacking models, and we have one of their excellent Zenith 200 tents to give away in this issue’s competition.
The Zenith 200 is a hybrid tunnel tent which helps to maximise the inner space to weight ratio. The flysheet and inner pitch together, allowing you to get the tent up quickly – especially useful in bad weather. It has factory taped seams and a 70-denier, 6000mm polyester groundsheet and 5000mm flysheet, meaning the rain will always be kept at bay. Alloy poles keep the weight down and they are colour-coded for easy pitching. Inside the Zenith 200 you’ll find an inner tent featuring breathable polyester, which allows condensation to pass through, and the part-mesh door increases ventilation while also keeping bugs out. There are several useful pockets inside to keep essential items close to hand, and the O-shaped inner doors are easily opened with one hand.
There’s lots of nice touches all around this tent. We like being able to prop up the door with your walking pole to create a sheltered porch, and the reflectors on pegging points make seeing in low light that bit easier. We like the oversized tent bag which means packing up is quick and easy, with compressions straps reducing the volume. Then there’s the patented Vango TBS II Tension Band System, which significantly improves the tent’s performance in adverse conditions, especially in strong, changeable winds. The TBS II system is super clever; when tensioned, the bands brace the pole at three points and prevent sideways movement, giving you a good night’s sleep even when a storm is raging outside.
