- TBS II - The Vango patented TBS II – Tension Band System ensures that your tent performs in adverse conditions, especially strong, changeable winds. In calm conditions the system can be disconnected if desired. When tensioned, the bands brace the pole and prevent sideways movement. The buckles should be adjusted so that slack is removed, but not over tensioned, as this may deform the poles.

Having also had the opportunity to test Vango’s cheaper version, the Talas, I was struck by the quality of the poles that hold this tent up – all metal (aluminium?) and well manufactured. They slot together convincingly and the tension cord is sufficiently strong to stop them coming apart while you feed them through the sleeves – which are on the outside of the flysheet in this design.
I also like the fact that this is a tent where the flysheet goes up first. This means that if it’s raining you don’t get the inner soaked before you’ve finished putting it up, and it also means that in warm weather you can just use the flysheet. Once you’ve mastered how it works you can get the flysheet up very quickly, and peg it down with no fewer than eight guy ropes as well as pegs through the groundsheet hoops. The pegs, by the way, are lightweight ones, hollow aluminium, I’d guess. These are much lighter than steel, although I suspect that wouldn’t take kindly to being driven into hard ground with a mallet.
I did find fitting the inner within the tent a bit trickier, however. First you attach the groundsheet to the straps that hold the bottom of the flysheet in the correct position using hooks and rings provided for the purpose. That was easy enough, although removing them again when dismantling was challenging because of the strength of the clip closures that are designed to stop accidental release.Read more ›
This tent is what you would expect from a smaller Vango. Great 3 pole design, very easy to erect.
Great size tent with plenty of ventilation options.
The tent was very easy to pitch, even without a second pair of hands. The three poles fitted together effortlessly, and slid through the seams of the tent without any hassle. The pegs are quite lightweight (and could probably bend quite easily) but I was able to push them into the soft grass without much effort. The inner was quickly and easily clipped into place and I was good to go.
In terms of space I was fairly happy overall. I'm not exactly short at over 6ft and still had plenty of room below my feet. The width was also satisfactory. At the highest point of the tent I was just about able to sit completely upright without brushing the ceiling. The two porch sections at either end of the tent are small and would only accommodate relatively small backpacks. I used it to store my hiking boots. However there is enough room inside the main tent to keep a couple of rucksacks. The ventilation also seemed to be good with no condensation when I woke in the morning (I kept all four of the ventilation zips open throughout the night). I also experienced a couple of hours of steady rain and the tent showed no signs of leaking.
Packing the tent up was probably more difficult than pitching it. The ceiling parts of the inner were easy to remove, but the six clips that attach to the bottom of the outer were very difficult to remove (especially with cold and wet hands at 6am). In the end, I had to resort to using a multitool to unclip the fasteners. Despite that, I was able to get the tent rolled up and packed away in about five minutes.
The tent isn't particularly light, but for the price it's hard to complain. Overall, I was very pleased with this purchase and would certainly recommend it to anyone.
