Ideal for lightweight campers, the Vango Torridon 300 is three-berth, lightweight tent, which offers a high-specification tent at a low price. The Torridon is very much designed for the mountains or high altitude, with durable polyester Ripstop fabric, and alloy tent poles, to reduce the weight. Perfect for DofE, backpackers or scouts, embodying all the features required for lightweight campers.

The Vango Torridon 300 Tent is a truly stunning lightweight, small pack size tent, designed to be at home in the mountains, with it's semi-geodesic design and exo-skeleton frame. An exo-skeleton frame is quick to pitch, whilst also adding strength and stability to the frame structure of the tent, whilst maximising internal living spaces.

Ideal for long distance, high altitude trips, with a low weight (3.75kg) and an excellent 70 denier, ripstop polyester fabric.

Berth3 Man

Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.

Hydrostatic Head (mm)5000

Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.

Flysheet Fabric70 Denier, Protex RS, 5000mm Polyester Fabric

Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.

Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.

Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.
