Would bug too heavy for me ... good to stick in boot of car though

seems good value

Reasonable quality tent - excellent value for price. I bought this a month ago - whilst it's not as good as more expensive Vango tents, it's damn good for the money. Heat!

Yes, you'll be fine ... as long as you are 120cm or less

This was on HUKD about 3 weeks ago at about £42 via Amazon and I bought it, very happy with it, used it only once so far but a great tent and was a great price when I bought it, even better now. Heat !

Cheers OP, perfect for the kids camping in the garden!!!

quite helpful,definitely will sit tight

One thing I would say about this tent is that its more of a two man tent. Two single airbeds fit in, only just. A double would be better. But no way of getting 3 people in on airbeds, maybe 3 people on camping mats but that's it. It is a great tent though, not many with double layer walls and a reputable brand at this price. The inner wall/sheet is built in with the ground sheet so you can easily add that in the rain after assembling the rest of the tent first and you won't get the living area dirty even in the rain.

Looks a decent tent for the money.

To be fair camping on air mattresses is slightly cheating.

Hello,

I've just seen this but had been considering the Vango Ark 200 or Vango Alpha 300 for about £60. Would anyone recommend this tent over those as I'm already getting tempted by the price.

thanks in advance

Personally, this Bravo is a no brainer when compared to the other two. They all have the same HH rating (3000mm fly, 10,000mm floor). Unless I am mistaken though, the Bravo has 2 doors (and 2 vestibules), which means you can store your gear easily/separately from one another, can have a huge amount of ventilation if required, and you can enter/exit the tent at night without disturbing the other person.

The design of the Bravo also means you can open the entire side of the tent, which is nice for ventilation, but also for cooking and just watching the day go by!

The other two are just conventional tents with just one front door. None of them are suitable for hiking etc because of their weight.

I was looking at Both the Alpha 300 and The Bravo 300 a few weeks ago and sole reason I got the Bravo 300 was because of the Amazon price which was a few £ more than it is now but still almost £20 cheaper than the Alpha 300.
So I can't speak much for the Alpha 300 but I am very happy with the Bravo 300. What I can say is its a shame the Bravo 300 doesn't have plastic windows like the Alpha, but I do prefer the two side doors of the Bravo 300 rather than just one front one. That having said with the front one on the Alpha 300 you can probably make a small canopy from an open door by using two poles. The two side doors of the Bravo 300 means you can store your shoes etc between the outer and inner door on one side but still make a quick exit through the other door if needed without tripping over shoes etc! One thing to be aware of is there is no front and back storage areas, although it looks like there is in the image there is no way of getting to these (no internal openings to them for example).

It does have 2 doors but only one vestibule/storage area. All the other positive points you make are very valid and I'm happy with my Bravo 300, probably more so than I would have been with the Alpha

Heat, I would have bought this if I didn't already have the Vango Sabre 300 for £60 on Amazon a few months ago, £115 now (amazon.co.uk/gp/…EEG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00) - it's a similar style to the Bravo, but a bit better, eg 5000mm fly sheet.

bargain bought, thanks

Quality tent, bought at £42 a month ago. Excellent bang for your buck.

Using it tomorrow again for more bike touring.

Thats about the price it was at when I bought it, still very much a bargain. Hope you enjoy it

If you can cope with something a bit smaller the 2 man version is an absolute bargain at the moment for less than £26 !
