One of the best purchases I ever madeReview by Graham
Bought my Vango Force 10 Mk3 in 1981 and it's still going strong. Decided to buy mine after I camped one winter in the Lake District and we had strong gales all night. When we woke in the morning the only tents in completely good shape were the distinctive orange Vangos.
Mine has stood up to everything from snow to torrential rain, howling winds and desert sun. Very robust, totally dependable. Yes they're a little heavy, wouldn't like to backpack with it unless I could split between two people. (Posted on 14/04/2014)
This tent will last for years!Review by David P
I bought my Force Ten in 1975 and apart from new rubbers it is still going strong! excellent workmanship.You can't buy better quality than this. (Posted on 05/08/2010)
Bombproof Stealth TentReview by David
These tents have been around for nearly forty years. The design is very simple A-frame poles, cotton inner and fly, robust groundsheet. Tough design means they will stand almost anything, cotton means they do not suffer from condensation. I've used in Snowdonia in winter when modern tents were giving up the ghost. Orange is a bit bright, but looks cool in deep snow! Only issue is they are a bit weighty, but reasonable split between two. (Posted on 10/05/2010)
