Features to Note:

In-use Test:

Pitching the Vango TBS Micro 200 tent: Thread the single pole into its colour coded sleeve, then peg out the four corners. This is not quite as easy as it sounds because the centre axis keeps falling over until you have at least two (diagonally opposite) pegs in place. Everything is adjustable though so it is easy to pull everything taught and adjust on stony ground.

Inner section can be left attached to the fly when stowed so the tent goes up all in one action.

The Vango TBS Micro 200 has internal tensioning straps designed to keep the tent sturdy in high winds. However, these pass through the living quarters and including the door restricting access.

Features: Small porch - big enough for cooking but not for stowing a rucksack. Side opening door can be stowed out of the way (but you must remove and then reattach the internal tensioning strap first). Lots of side pockets and hanging ring for torch, radio etc.

Size: Too small for a two person tent - though ideal for one. Two (very good friends) can sleep side by side but both will have to leave all their kit outside. (The porch is not big enough to store one rucksack let alone two). Central apex design means headroom at either end is a little low. I found it difficult to get into any position where I wasn't brushing against the inner tent. In fact the whole inner section tends to sag and feel claustrophobic.

Buying Advice:

Vango gear is always good value - and the Vang TBS Micro 200 is great for one person. If you need a two person tent - get the next size up.
