3 Reviews of the Storm 200

By: Robinbriggs247  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2007   Rating: 

Trusty small tent. Easy to put up and take down. With age the thin groundsheet is becoming porous and I have had to replace one section of one of the poles. It is really useful to have a tent tall enough to sit in without scraping the roof. It is also great to have front and back door options in windy conditions. When I finally replace it, I will look for a larger porch area.

As a teacher I was encouraged to give full marks whenever warranted. Vango really hit the button with this little tent! Mind you, these were the days when their entire trecking range consisted of Storm, Hydra and Hurricane. Sometimes less is more. But no problems with full marks for my Storm tent.

Rather like Dr Who's TARDIS the Storm feels larger on the inside than out. Probably because of the combination of generous rectangular inner with steep sides and two doors.

As it's name suggests, Storm can actually handle one of these due to its inner first pitching arrangement - no protruding poles and, of course, the flysheet anchoring everything in place. Also, partly it's semi-geodesic pole design preventing the tent being flattened by gusts.

As the other reviewer here has mentioned there is one tiny issue regarding the flysheet orientation! It can take a moment to align the doors correctly due to the asymmetrical shape but not enough to remove a point in my opinion!

High quality components throughout ensure not only a sturdy piece of equipment but one which lasts for years. After 12 years or so my Storm is as good as new. She's seen fellow tents from Vango come and go but holds her ground in every way.

I too hope that Vango steer a course back towards high quality versus high quantity. I've bought several of their more modern trecking and family tents recently. I've chosen carefully though as stories abound online of cheaper models (outsourced to overseas manufacturers) which are barely fit for purpose and which lead to disappointment. Even so, I've encountered quality and design issues which one would never traditionally attribute to the Vango name and that's very sad.

This tent is Vango at their best. The design is such that you get a good rectangular, helpfuly sized, proportioned inner tent.

The parts are all high quality and everything is well made.

It's easy to pitch -only tricky bit is ensuring the fly sheet goes on the right way round as it's not symmetrical. You don't have to spend ages messing around getting things lined up and adjusted to get a tent that's well pitched and resistant to the elements.

I've never had any leaks or high wind issues, never had to replace any parts or even reproof it!

The only slight repair I had to do was on the ground sheet which is quite thin, but that's expected from a light weight tent.

My only problem is what do I replace it with when it does finally die as Vango seem to have gone very downhill in the quality of their tents, at least their bigger tents.
