Vango have been producing quality tents for over fifty years. Their decades of experience span the full spectrum of outdoor needs, from entry-level camping to solo mountain adventures. Innovation is integral to their design philosophy; the history of Vango tents is filled with new ideas, first-attempts and ingenious improvements. They were the first brand to introduce an integrated flysheet and ‘A’ pole system, the backbone of their iconic Force Ten tent. This industry legend was introduced in 1967 and successfully supported Everest expeditions in the 1970s.
Amongst dozens of other innovations, their Tension Band System® (TBS) stands out. This internal frame mechanism creates stability to cope with adverse conditions and high winds. First introduced in 1993 TBS is now in its third iteration and continues to be a key feature in Vango’s design arsenal.
Vango tents are for the family and the lone explorer. They pioneered the AirBeam to create inflatable tents that are rapid to pitch and spacious enough for the full family. Alternatively, their larger poled tents are a more traditional home-from-home for all the family, though they still benefit from years of technological development.
For moving fast and light in the outdoors, Vango backpacking tents are hard to beat. Alloy poles, the TBS system and robust waterproofing all make for a reliable refuge in the wilds. When all of this is packed into a tent weighing only a few kilograms it really does become ideal for adventure.
