3 Reviews of the Zetes 200

Overall, this is a great tent for the money. We used it for 7 days in Shropshire and it held up very well.

The tent is comfortable for 2 people, but only for sleeping. There is limited space for getting changed and storing gear.

The tent package is lightweight, and good quality. It survived a couple of heavy downpours with no problem.

Pitching the tent is very easy, as is dismantling.

Overall it is a hassle-free tent which is good value.

I took this tent for a weekend away in march I already have a Vango Beta 250 but decided to give this little beauty a try. Firstly its light and compact so for bike touring or anyone wanting a small yet large weekend tent its ideal. I would not fancy fitting 2 people and their gear in it but for one its fantastic. It was frosty overnight but I stayed warm and cosy partially due to my 4 season sleeping bag and a 13tog duvet :) The tent was so easy to put up it took me 7 mins at snail pace and was so easy to pack away. The quality is great and for around 25-40 quid you wont go wrong with this 2 man effort from Vango. It also has a generous porch area 10/10

First outing camping for a few years, bought this tent upon the recommendation of an assistant at Go Outdoors, who recommended it over a pop-up tent that was 10 more expensive!

I was unused to pitching a tunnel tent, the last tent I used was a dome tent some years ago, and unfortunately in this game previous experience doesn't mean you can avoid reading the instructions. These were thoughtfully sewn into the tent bag, so they are virtually impossible to lose.

Once we realised the poles threaded through the fly sheet, which went up first, everything else went fairly swimmingly. Our first attempt took us way longer than the 5 minutes suggested on the Go Outdoors site, but I'm sure next time will be quicker and easier. It was a little difficult to judge exactly how wide to pitch the fly sheet, which meant we had to reposition some pegs when attaching the ground sheet to avoid overstretching. Attaching the inner was however relatively easy thanks to the simple elastic loop and plastic toggle system.

Some clever features made this tent easy to use, such as the pocket for the door flap to tuck into, and the pockets on both sides for easy access to belongings.

The overall tent was of a generous size, but the fact the porch was so large made day-to-day use very practical.

Some neat little touches such as the windows, net opening on inner door and various vents made for a comfortable night's sleep.

Dismantling was quick and easy. It is possible to keep the inner attached to the fly sheet when dismantling the tent, though we chose to take the inner down first, which meant that everything stayed dry in the rain.

The tent came neatly packed with poles and pegs in separate bags, along with patches and spare guy lines. There were, however, no spare pegs, which could prove a problem should any become damaged.

Manufacturer's Description

It's pretty big for a small tent. Almost tardis like, the amount of space inside is surprising. It's no myth that the tunnel structure gives lots of internal room to manoeuvre. Get the most out of your walking poles by using them to extend out the front door after a day on the hills. This home improvement needn't cost the earth and can be done without going near to the local DIY store. (Walking poles not included).
