An extremely tough 1 person tent from Vango. The Tempest 150 is light enough to be an adventure tent whilst still coping easily with most weather conditions.

General comments: I brought one of these tents recently as I only go out a few times a year on my own, most of the time with friends or family, so I went for a budget tent. However I have to say that it is ok. NOT excellent but for its money it performs well. It is a 3 season, tunnel tent, and is quite spacious inside. The material are strong and durable, but then they should be s the complete weight is about 2.6kg. Thatís very heavy for a 1 man, and I noticed the extra weight! It will make future trips easier though. Seriously it is very heavy, and that is its main problem, yeh, fine if your putting it up on a campsite, but for carrying around the hills I will pay more next time. Despite that, there are some other very excellent ideas. It can be pitched as one, which saves time in the wet, also the groundsheet comes quite away up the sites, making it better for use in light snow or long grass. I have not used it in extreme conditions, and to be honest would dream of it, as it doesnít seem very stable, even when fully pegged out.
Pros: Cheap, good performance, get a spare and repair kit with it. Oh and colour coded poles.
Cons: Very heavy - you have been warned

General comments: I have had this tent for a year and a half and I love it. Okay, it is a wee bit weighty but there is loads of room with a big porch (even my instructor on my ML(S) training commented on that being a plus), it is easy to erect and quite stable in quite windy conditions (no probs on the Cairngorm Plateau). The opnly downside for me is that with it being so roomy, I feel the cold when conditoons are windy. But hey, that's why I have a good sleeping bag and it minimises the chance of condensation. All in all £75 well spent
Pros: lots of room in the porch for gear and space for cooking. In the tent itself, plenty of roonm to pack everything in your rucsack before taking down the tent.
Cons: can be cold but that's a good incentive to keep moving.

General comments: iv had this tent 4 bout 2years, been out many times and im pleased with its all round performance.
Pros: campt in heavy rain and it has neva likt, havent had problem with codensetion eather, the ground sheet is very good thow it feels quit soft and frigle, would still be awar of twigs and that on ground your setin up on,flaps in the wind but she is a stable tent, fits well in carying bag but is little on the big side, ( there are smaller/lighter 1 man tents out there) nice inside the material of inner tent gives it a good feel thow seatin up in there is not fun and when getin in and out of sleepin bag youv got to stay cool, porch comes in very handy, when setin this tent up its ferly fast you can make it stronger spend a little time stand bak look if its strait down midle,#~ all round its a good sleep/enof room/ strong tent, not sutable 4 expaditions, a nice forest 1 man experiens.
