User Review: Vango Micro 3
Design: three-season backpacking
Ease of Setup: Impossibly easy
Weight: < 3kg
Price Paid: $200
I was trying to locate spare parts for my 15-year-old Micro 3 and was astonished by the previous review - as a long term user and owner I couldn't disagree more.
The tent packs small and can be pitched in under two minutes by one person. It's a single pole tent with two roomy vestibules and large doors (for its size), low profile makes it stable in wind - the tension bands help here. Sleeps two comfortably and three in an emergency.
The inner can be detached for wet packing but other than that it stays in. Packing down is no problem. The tent is small and light (not ultralight) and stands up in pretty much anything the UK can throw at it. The only place I wouldn't take it out is high in a Scottish winter.
It's a pity Vango don't make them anymore.
