3 user reviews of Vango Omega 350 Tent See all
I bought it to use with my motorcycle on tours, I have used it now twice, one on a mountain during summer with around 9 degrees celsius and quite a lot humidity, no problems at all!
It's has plenty of room for 2 people and their gear, 3rd would be quite squashed.Second journey with it included a hot part of the Greek countryside, it performed quite nicely (even though I was afraid I would be very hot inside it), easy to pitch and easy to pack (needs a bit of practice though due to its size) even on your own, the pegs are quite easily bent so I would advice buying some strong pegs, especially if you camp on rocky spots. It's build is quite nice and seems it can withstand both wind and rain, I haven't tested it in more extreme conditions (other than the mentioned above) but I am planning to give it a go on a autumn mountain excursion.

Me and my Girlfriend use for use one of these for car camping. On one occasion, we used it for a 3 day trip to North Yorkshire where we got horrendous weather, i.e gales for the whole trip, to the point where other more expensive tents started to leak and break. I was convinced our relatively cheap Vango tent (we paid £89.99 for it at the time) would suffer the same fate, but it stood strong. I've liked Vango tents ever since.
When me and my girlfriend split, she somehow ended up keeping the tent, so I replaced it with a Spirit 200 +, which is even better, but did cost a bit more.
