2 Reviews of the Hurricane 200
By: Wintercampers Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2008 Rating: Date: 16/02/2009
This is a great tent, not the lightest but still a great all rounder. In its latest use, I had it up in -2 temps at night, strong winds and rain. There was not a drop inside and I was kept comfortable at night. It is quick and easy to put up with no over complications. The design, with its tension system, vents , bathtub inner and colour coded pole slips make it the best tent I have owned and used to date.

Not a light weight but suits me to the ground. Have had this tent for a year now and has been used seven times. The first time out from the Friday night to the Sunday afternoon it rained non stop with gusts of wind, no sign of any drips, nothing got wet and it stood its ground well. Have managed to get the pitching time down from 15 minutes to 10 easily now I am getting more used to it. It has two doors and two storage areas big enough for backpacks. Four good vents keep the condensation at bay, handy storage pockets at side of tent and a small roof cradle suitable to put head torches in or a mobile. I am 5 foot 8 inches tall and can sit upright easily due to its design. The tensioning system works well and even with strong winds the flysheet has not touched the inner tent.
The tent is used mainly for D of E expeditions and at this moment in time has proved itself to be bomb proof.

Classic, four-pole geodesic symmetry with external pole sleeves, the Hurricane epitomises all that is Vango - strong, comfortable, easy to use and above all, reliable across a range of conditions from high mountain use all the way down the mountain. It is robust enough to stand all that can be thrown away at it for many years of use.
