My first tent, so unable to compare to others. Very easy to put up, and must have been about right as even in very heavy rain it stayed dry inside. Am 6ft and heavy, but plenty of space for self and wife and all luggage. Seems to a great deal of attention to detail. All sorts of little clips and toggles. Still haven't worked out reason for all of them, but am newby.

Only difficulty, finding one the @@@@@@@ things to buy in the first place. If you can find one, buy it.

Buy one

Like many I bought this tent because I wanted a quality weekend tent for two people but with that little extra room and with a bit of storage but small enough to pitch quickly on my own - I was not disappointed!

The quality is great and the internal storage fantastic. The sleeping is great and has enough space for a double air bed with enough room for personal belongings.

Pitching is a very easy taking about 5 mins to erect with two adults, and taking it down is just as easy.

Weather proof - it's great/ I've just returned from weekend in Wales where it did nothing but rain for 2 days and not a drop came through the lining.

The porch area may prove draughty and sometimes feels like there is a few pegs needed at the front but now where to put them but this is a storage area after all.

Finally I would have given it top marks but the down side, unfortunately after our first camp in it I will be need to take it back as the stitching around one of the zips has been completely missed - Iím hoping this is a one off as it has been a brilliant tent. Tent pegs are also aluminium so will need replacing.

Pack size is brilliant, even has velcro guy line tidies and weighs next to nothing!

Extremely compact.

Very easy to erect in any conditions.

Stands up to severe wind and rain.

Porch and bedroom are massive compared to the packed size and weight.

Aluminium pegs can bend on rocky ground, but they are very light and easily straightened (so this isn't a bad point).

I bought the 2009 model, which is significantly lighter than previous versions, and love it - the three person version was the perfect size with a nice entrance tunnel. East to put up (it's my first ever tent) and pack down, instructions a little confusing - they almost make it seem more difficult that it is! Nice reflective bits on the webbing and zip tags - why haven't they put this in the guy ropes too? I suggested it to them in an email and they've not bothered responding.

Tent pegs very soft - I bent the entire bundle in half because it was in my side cargo trouser pocket when I was pushing one at time into the ground! But reasonably easily straightened. Would definitely recommend.

Promised that I'd update my review after using the tent, so here it is. Just back from a weekend camping at RAF Finmere for a paintball event with absolutely horrendous weather - I can't recall the like since the storm of 1987 - 70mph gusts and driving rain. The campsite was decimated with tents collapsing, being flooded, blown upside down - you name it.

Thankfully the Omega 350 was superb. Easy to pitch even in the very blustery (30-40mph) conditions at the time and being set end-on to the prevailing wind it took everything thrown at it without any problems. Not a single leak inside and the split design was a god-send, allowing you to get inside and strip off waterproofs and wellies in the porch area, then clamber into the lovely dry sleeping area.

I'd made a tarp footprint for the tent and when taking the tent down was able to strip out the bone dry inner tent before having to collapse the fly sheet - made life a lot easier when drying the fly in the garage at home.

Other points - the bright orange guylines were superb, a small thing but I lost count of the times people tripped over the dark coloured lines on other tents - but these stand out brilliantly. They also come fitted with line-locks as standard, which I hadn't realised - makes adjusting the lines so simple and secure.

I've been racking my brains to think of a single downside to the tent and the only improvement I'd like to see for the 2013 model is some way of closing/adjusting the air vent into the sleeping compartment. It's well shielded from the elements but in the gale force winds we experienced it was slightly breezier than ideal.

A really excellent tent, can't recommend it more highly.

I've just had my first trip away in my Omega 350 more then happy with it, I had 35mph winds when I was away and it stood there and took it without a flinch, I did have slight condensation on the fly sheet one morning but the temp had gone down to -4c in the night so its to be expected.

Its a good size tent and you could sleep 3 but I think it would be better for 2 unless you are all really friendly.

Easy enough to pitch, I managed to pitch it by myself when it was a bit gusty so no problems there.

All in all a good all round tent.

Fantastic little tent, nice and quick to put up. A good amount of protection from bad weather with the store lashing internally. Nice bright colour on the inside along with brightly coloured guy ropes. Plenty of space in the sleeping compartment, to the point we had a self inflating queen sized airbed in ours and it fitted perfectly. In the 'living' end, we managed to have three bags of close, five carrier bags of food, a dog bed, and all our cooking gear, plus to chairs put up so plenty of room indeed! Nice and easy to put up and take down and folds away nice and compact. To add to this is amazingly light.

The only down side I can think of is that if you've had rain, when you open up the door, it runs down off the roof and straight onto the living area floor because the roof and the floor are offset and the floor comes our further than the roof.

Other than that its a fantastic tent!

First time festival camping this year so plumped for this well reviewed model. After initially buying last years model at a £40 discount with G.O only to find it was 'used' they swapped it for the new model for same price for the inconvenience.

I bought a separate footprint (£30) which I heartily recommend as you can peg it out first and use as a stencil for pitching area (great to have an idea if you encroach someone else's pitch). Time to put up was 15 mins but that was with me previously practising and attaching the inner bedroom. Would guess 25 to 30 mins from new bag to first pitch.

The tent really stands out and has a suitable porch which is well ventilated if both doors used. Can cook in there but only recommend a small hexi cooker and half a tab burning at a time (good when raining). The attachable bedroom section is very spacious. The bright orange colour means all is well lit in the day and gets quite warm in there if temperatures outside are up. It stays very cool at night though and plenty of zippable mesh kicking around for air flow (bedroom door & One main door fly screen).

There is a separate upper-lipped ground sheet for porch area you can attach in case you have no additionl footprint and works just as well, though would not recommend for stony/hazard ground.

As long as this tent is not stretched too tight with the guide ropes, the 2014 model seems very robust with strong seams. It survived an overnight downpour and mild gusts easily (it gives you confidence when inside).

The usual/well documented 'tapping the roof from within' to release the rainwater before exit is a staple but no dealbreaker or hassle; alternatively can be a useful shower if left on and then open your door (subject to porta-showers on site being crap).

I would definitely buy Vango again and this model is slightly too big for hiking so considering dropping a size to the 250 - it would all depend how long I plan to stay somewhere and how much luxury I want to take.

This would easily suit two people and the porch can be utilised as a sleep area if there are small kids. I would not sleep above 3 people. I was on my own and I had a single air bed in the bedroom - this left loads of room and I could have easily got a double in there with space left over for storage. 6 large side pockets take virtually every accessory you have and is a great feature.

There is space to hang a light and one of those mini 's' hooks allowed my torch/lantern to be hung no problem. All in all I felt rather spoilt with this tent for just myself and it did turn quite a few heads with the very British green colour.

Unflappable in the face of wind whilst shrugging off the showers and casual serenity in the blazing sunshine. I recommend A ***

A really good little tent!

Lots of thought put into it and can be put up in no time at all with only one person (particularly handy whilst the other is occupied getting the barbecue going!)

It has some really handy features with it, and is a pleasure to camp it

The waterproofness of it is fantastic, the water just runs straight off, and the ground sheet comes up at the sides and clips on to prevent water entering from below - there are masses of pockets in the sleeping area which are rally handy for emptying your pockets into (just remember to take the pack of cards out before you pack up, or you'll be playing 52 card pick up next time you erect it)

Really like this tent, you could actually sleep 3 in it but more comfortable with 2. Good sized porch with groundsheet, bedroom with SIG. Needs a full insect screen door option into bedroom, has a little one in top of door at present. Very waterproof and seems fine in what wind I have experienced with it. I have a footprint for Vango airbeam Genesis 300 which fits perfectly, big help in keeping things clean and dry. Easy to keep the inner bedroom area attached when taking down if it is dry, goes up in no time in that configuration.Need to give the sides a good bash when it has been wet. Not too bad for condensation - keep the vents open. All in all, roomy, comfortable, weather proof and adaptable.

Manufacturer's Description

The Vango Omega Tents are very similar in layout and style to the Vango Beta tents however, they feature two significant differences; they have alloy poles which significantly reduces the weight of the tent and they feature the new 'speed-pitch' system to allows for 'all-in-one' pitching (the Dodgers are interested). These tunnel tents are perfect for 2-season camping and feature a living/porch area large enough to use as living space, bike or gear storage and two entrances.
The Vango Omega 350 a 3-berth version of the tent which features a breathable polyester inner, bathtub inner groundsheet and permanent living area/porch groundsheet. The flysheet is made from Protex 2000, a polyester fabric with 2000mm hydrostatic head with fully taped seams and continuous external pole sleeves. Within the flysheet are air vents and 'crystal clear' windows with internal covers for privacy. The poles are Powerlite 7001-T6 alloy providing precision and strength with flexibility and corrosion resistance. Comes complete with zip entry handled carry bag.
