Vango XD Backpacking Tents

15:27

Are you looking for a tent range where the manufacturer asks the end user how do we make our tents better to suit your needs? Then better still they listen to your feedback, and go and make the tents?
Introducing the Vango XD backpacking tent range.
If you are you a group leader, say of a scout group or DofE school group, and you're looking to improve the outdoor kit in your stock room, then the Vango Xd tent range is for you. Bigger, better, stronger. The Vango XD trekking tents are constructed with extra durable materials and components, and are more resistant to wear and tear.

Vango XD Tents for 2018 - Complete Outdoors


The above words are easy to say and type but what have the guys at Vango actually done to improve their existing tents?

Glad you asked. Here are the answers:

1) THE FLY SHEET & GROUND SHEET

The fly sheet is a tough 75 denier polyester which also has a ripstop design worked into it. This means the material has an increased strength compared to the standard backpacking tents and the ripstop gives the flysheet a tear protection.

We all know tents that are loaned out from kit stockrooms get a lot of use and maybe don't get the same love and attention compared to your own tent. So when damage does occur, such as a hole on the flysheet, the ripstop design will reduce the progress of the tear. So that's the roof improved but what about the floor? Good news! The groundsheet has a top spec of 150 denier and has been integrated and manufactured to withstand high levels of usage.

2) THE VANGO XD TENT POLES

When you think of tents braking, what is one of the first thing that stands out in your mind? Tent poles!!

So how are these Vango XD tents any different? Glad you asked! The XD tent range now comes with a pole first aid kit which includes a spare pole section keeping the tent self serviceable for longer.

2) THE VANGO XD TENT PEGS 

Finally let's not forget about the small and simple things. The alloy tent pegs have been made thicker so they are less likely to bend (we have all experienced that, more than once!).

Ever think much about zips and pegging points? The guys at Vango did too, so all have been beefed up on the XD tents, protecting them from heavy handed users.

CHECK OUT THE XD TENTS!

Vango trekking tents have always been great but now with the XD you can have tents you can trust. In Vango's own words these tents are seriously tough, light and easy to pitch. The XD tents are a must look at if you are in the market for a new tent, or looking to invest your funds to replace your tired tents in your kit room.
