Having previously not been happy with a Vango tent due to UV degredation I have found this excellent. Easy to put up, bags of space in sleeping area. Surprising amount of headroom on the line of the pole which is where you need it. Outer storage area at each end leaves bags of space for storage and cooking etc with entrance/exit at each end means you don't have to be climbing over gear to get out in bad weather. And you can change ends with the wind! Had about 50 nights in it over the year that I have had it, but have had very good luck with the weather so I haven't tested it in a real storm. In moderate winds the tension band system seems to work well.
Only complaint is that one of the plastic D rings that you peg through broke when I stood on it on a rock. As with all their products I guess Vango would replace this free but I haven't bothered, I just peg through the strap.
It has completely won me back to Vango tents -- just have to wait a few years now and see how it stands up to UV.
