At the very start of the Summer I was sent a Vango Inflatable Tent to review and I was pretty excited. I had wanted an inflatable tent since last Summer after spotting one being put up with effortless ease at a festival last year. Typically weather, illness and other issues meant I haven’t even had a chance to go camping again this year.
Yet I wanted to know what it was like, so what do you do when you haven’t got a chance to review yourself?
Yes, you send a friend to do the job for you! Luckily some of my friends were eager to give it a whirl.
Here is what they thought:
It’s an impressive bit of kit. The bag is pretty big and reasonably heavy but has strong straps if you had to carry it a long way.
The tent comes with a good dual action pump and plenty of pegs.
Putting it up was straight forward, being male we decided to not read the instructions and it went up in no time.
We spread the tent out and pegged one end then working backwards inflated a pole at a time.
The poles felt solid when inflated, much sturdier than plastic poles.
The AirSpeed valves are simple to operate and make inflating and deflating quick and easy.
The 2 rooms were big and we could both stand up and move around in there pretty easily. There are lots of vents and mesh to allow air circulation, also handy pockets in the sides of the tents and quick zip curtains.
It’s probably the best tent I’ve used because of the size, ease to put up and pack away and the fact that it doesn’t really move if there is any wind – it’s rock solid.
Packing away a tent is always a pain, but this was reasonably straight forward. I would definitely recommend it.
Thanks Ceri for reviewing on my behalf, as well as a great guest reviewer he is a pretty awesome photographer – go check out his work here.
