Vango Nevis 200 2P Hiking Tent
How to set up & pack away
Details & Specs
With a good space to weight ratio, an easy to pitch design and an affordable price tag - the Nevis 200 2P Tent from Vango is a great choice for travelling fast and light.
The tunnel design gives you good performance in the wind. The external frame allows for the inner and fly to be pitched together or pitch the fly first and attach the inner after. Featuring a solid yet breathable polyester inner, a durable 6000mm rated floor, and a 70D Protex 3000mm rated fly to keep out the elements - the Nevis provides you with reliable protection. The factory taped seams on the fly and groundsheet create a watertight seal, and the alloy poles combined with Vango's Tension Band System offer a light yet durable structure.
Three mesh panels in the inner tent provide ventilation for the sleeping area whilst storm covered vents on the ends of the flysheet allow for airflow to the outside. O-shaped doors are easily opened with one hand and the top of the vestibule zipper is protected by a storm flap to minimise water dripping too far into your storage space. For items you need close by at night there is a divided storage pocket inside to keep you organised.
The tent bag also has an oversize opening plus compression straps to make packing it up a breeze. Well-made, lightweight and budget-friendly - the Nevis 200 2P tent from Vango provides dependable shelter for two.

If using this in summer is there a footprint to use with the fly? the enclosed inner looks like it'd get pretty hot, but I like how you can pitch the fly only. Can you do that with the BW Mantis ULII?
Tom - Melbourne(4 years ago)
You can pitch the Nevis 200 with the fly only, however, there is no footprint currently available for this model, so you could use a lightweight tarp underneath your sleeping mat. Unfortunately there isn't the option to pitch the Mantis UL II fly only due to the pole configuration.

Is this suitable for snowfall?
Tess - Torquay(5 years ago)
In theory you could use any tent in snow, as long as you are aware of its limitations! One of the Snowys Team uses their Vango in the snow. It has minimal ventilation, so will be warmer, and should stand up to reasonable winds and other alpine elements, however its frame isnt going to handle snow load. If you are in active snowfall you may need to get up a few times in the night to clear off the fly. Hope that helps!

Is this tent free standing1 answer
Is the tent free standing on its own without the use of tent pegs or stakes
Cody. - Grenfell(5 years ago)
The Nevis 200 2P Hiking Tent isn't free standing, so it will need all poles and pegs to be used to keep the tent up.
Leece - Snowys(5 years ago)
Hi, with the inner of the tent not being mesh (although it does say it is a breathable fabric?) do you think condensation would be an issue?
Joel - Black Hill NSW(5 years ago)
Yes, the Vango Nevis 200 is likely to create condensation due to its minimal ventilation and we wouldn't recommend it for use as a general hiking tent. It is a 3 season tent however it's designed to best suit damp/wet conditions. Cheers :)

Weight vs. minimum weight1 answer
What is omitted when measuring the weight vs. minimum weight?
Greg - Bayswater(5 years ago)
The minimum weight of the Nevis 200 (and most hiking tents) is the weight of just the tent, fly and poles. The minimum weight doesn't include the pegs, stuff sack, pole bags or instructions. If you know you're going to have other peg options (e.g. tent platforms, or sticks/rocks) and you're needing to cut your weight down then leaving a few bits behind can be a good option.
