User Review: Vango Micro 3
Ease of Setup: very hard have to make sure all the little poles are up (and the easily fall down again!)
Weight: very heavy
Price Paid: free
Someone lent me this tent for as long as I needed it. Judging by the weight I can tell why. I tried to use it on the D of E and it leaked and also weighed a ton. I notice Gelert does a very similar tent (Nakina Plus), but has changed the steel pole with fibreglass poles, this might make it lighter.
The other problem is when re-packaging it there are four little poles in the corners that stay connected to the tent so you have to make sure you get them all facing the same direction (or unroll it and start again!). This tent is supposed to be a 3-man; there were two of us in this tent and we had to put our gear in survival bags outside (don't know where the thirrd man would go!). The other point is the roof on this tent is very low at the sides so you have to watch you don't suffocate!
