Review: Vango Soul 200 Tent

We've been holding off with this particular review for some time, the snow and freezing temperatures hasn't exactly made it the optimum time to start throwing summery tents your way. But, compared to recent weeks, this weekend has been rather glorious, not exactly a heat wave, but sunshine and temperatures reaching over 5C see's a sufficient difference to start getting a little excited about the Spring and Summertime ahead.

So without further ado, let's have a gander at a new tent for this Spring/Summer, the Vango Soul 200. This two person, tunnel designed tent is perfect for those who are taking their first steps into camping, as well as those who have been exploring the great outdoors for some time. With just two powerflex fibreglass poles, the Soul 200 is a cinch to pitch and can be done in under 5 minutes. Featuring a 70D Protex 2,000mm flysheet and a hardwearing 10,000mm groundsheet, the Soul has plenty of weather protection, just in case the rain clouds come calling. It has inner first pitching with a breathable polyester inner tent and part mesh inner door.


Inside, the Soul 200 features a conveniently placed lantern loop sewn into the roof so you can hang your lantern for reading, cooking or just relaxing in the evening. Other specifications include Vango's orange guylines, making them easy to see even in low light, so yourself and other campers won't trip up and fall flat on their faces. The tent comes with a handy carry bag for simple storage and ease of transportation.


All together the tent weighs a total of 2kg, has a pack size of 51 x 14cm and has a quoted pitching time of around 7 minutes, although it can be done quicker! We've got two colours available; Black/Treetops and Atlantic/Black. We've also got the rest of the Vango Soul Family in stock with the 100 and 300 versions.
