5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING, 30 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't give this anything other than five stars. Truly great product.Tastes and smells like coffee when made, I use almond milk to make mine. I have a little strainer that sits in your cup, I put a couple of teaspoons of dandelion in, pour hot water on, leave for a minute, remove and then add the milk. Delicious, works so well in the morning and nice to be able to have it last thing at night as well. Timing is key, not brewed long enough will leave you with a disappointing watery beverage, too long and it becomes so bitter it is undrinkable. Find your correct time and it is perfect. Can also reuse the granules about three times I have found, brewing longer with each use, so very economical! The health benefits of dandelion are just so good as well. It isn't just that you are removing pesky caffeine from your diet, you are adding so much more like vital vitamins and minerals. Love love love it.

I only buy designer pants now and mainly Emporios as they last longer and don't lose shape or colour as other brands seem to.

Would have given four stars except my mum had to put a new button on as the one it came with broke off. Otherwise seem decent and fit really well. Certainly bright and vibrant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 28 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely love these, perfect colour and sound quality is great. As well as for music during activities ranging from running and swimming through to housework and gymnastics, I like to download ASMR tracks which these are great for. No wires to worry about getting ensnared in should you fall asleep.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too fond, but I don't hate them, 28 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, not great no bad. They seem a little baggier around the legs than I was expecting and also seem in a fashion actually more suited to an older gentlemen than a younger one like myself.

Vango Blade 200 Tent

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Good Tent, if had a a full mesh door flap would be a 5star., 28 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can wholeheartedly recommend the Vango Blade 200 as a great backpacking tent. Its one pole design means it is compact and light, yet it is also very spacious, especially for one person. It can do two people at a push, but it gets cramped quickly with all the items you want in the tent with you. It has stood up to some horrific weather and has been tested around the UK in various locations with various substrates and climates.

Zero condensation issues when used with a single person, some slight problems with it when there are two people but not too bad. I've been in a tent before where I woke up to almost everything being soaked and this is nothing. Like I said with one person, not a dot of it anyway. When used alone, sleeping centrally gives you a large strip of space either side for bags and other kit, as well as some space at your feet too. The porch area is large and can fit your boots and any wet items in easily.

I use the tent with the Vango Footprint designed for it, and gives it an extra layer of protection from the ground. It also allows you to map out your pitch before putting the tent up which is useful. I would advise decent pegs as the structural integrity of the tent, because of the single aluminium pole, is heavily reliant on its anchor points. The pole will not keep the tent upright on its own, it needs tension from the sides.
The shape of the tent is very much designed to be as effective in strong winds as possible, and it works. It has little of the pole flex I have experienced in other tents, which is always slightly disconcerting when you are lying there watching the side of the tent cave in! This is reassuring and allows you to sleep a bit easier during storms.

Inside you have an inner tent which lays quite close to the outer so some care must be taken not to touch the sides if it can be helped (to avoid condensation penetrating). It is comfortable and warm, provides decent ventilation through a small roof flap at the rear, and one at the front. There are ample pockets to keep things you need to be able grab quickly like a flashlight, knife, keys etc. All of the seams seem very durable, the tent has been used extensively and no sign of any fraying or loose stitches as of yet. There are two ceiling hoops for hooking camp lights on to.

To top it off, the tent is also very attractive to the eye. It has a pleasing shape and does not stand out in any landscape. The guy lines are very visible being bright orange and reflective to avoid tripping.

Pros: Reliable, lightweight, wind resistant, spacious, attractive, practical, warm, very easy to pitch.

Cons: Two people is a push for the tent, it's doable but this is not where it shines resulting in space issues and some slight condensation. Quite a few and pretty strong pegs needed. Would be nice to have a half mesh/full mesh door flap for those warmer nights when you want to see outside, but not get eaten alive by midges.

Overall I would give the tent a 4.2/5. Vango Blade 200 Trekking Footprint: http://amzn.to/2eCw6kj
