With a stable easy pitch inner and fly, and a budget-friendly price tag – the Zenith 300 Tent from Vango is ideal for the lightweight trio ready for the trail.
This tent is designed to save you time in adverse weather as the fly and inner pitch together, while the single-pole hoop design delivers on stability. In windy conditions, the tension band system helps this tent perform and it has 5000mm rated fly with mesh vents for protection from the elements. The breathable polyester inner gives protection in cooler conditions, the part mesh inner door provides a ventilation point and the seams are factory taped for a watertight seal.
You can access this tent through the twin doors and create a sheltered porch with your hiking pole as there’s an attachment eyelet in the door to lift it up. For better visibility with your headtorch at night, there are multiple reflective points, while the inner has handy storage pockets to keep your essentials accessible. The Zenith also comes with a fast pack bag that features an oversized opening for a quick pack up, even if it’s wet.
Independently tested to the European standard EN5912 for rain and wind for reliability, the Zenith 300 from Vango offers dependable shelter on lightweight expeditions.

Tent weigh1 answer
Is the weight of the tent the actual carry weight or tent-and-fly only weight?

The specified weight is the actual carry weight of the tent in its bag and includes the fly, poles, pegs and repair kit.

Australian conditions 1 answer
Hello, Iâ€™m just wondering how Vango tents hold up in the hot Australian sun? Iâ€™m concerned after a few weeks of intense sun the material may weaken. Thanks

It should be fine mate. Over time there will always be signs of wear and tear, and the fly may fade a bit with prolonged exposure to the sun but if you look after it, it'll serve you well. It's worth bearing in mind though that no hiking tent is designed to be left pitched for extended periods. Cheers

Will this tent fit the Exped Megamat 10 Duo?2 answers
I have a Megamat 10 Duo and would like to know if it will fit in the rectangular portion of the tent floor.The dimensions shown in the pictures include the extended side, making it difficult to figure out the rectangular area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

Unfortunately, we've not been able to find out this information for you as the Australian Vango supplier does not have this information available to them. We've reached out to Vango themselves and also haven't been able to get any more information. Our gut feeling is that while the mat will likely just fit we wouldn't want to say it will. We don't currently have a display model of this tent, but if we use one to make a video for the product down the track we'd be happy to measure it then, but as the tent and mat are from two different categories (Hiking and Camping), we wouldn't generally expect people to use a mat like this as most people will be carrying this tent. Sorry, we couldn't be of more help.

Good news, we've finally heard back from Vango themselves and they're let us know that the Zenith 300 is 130cm at the short side in width, with 180cm at the widest point. So we'd say fitting a Megamat Duo will be a little too squishy.

How will this tent hold up with one single pole in overnight snow conditions at tree level1 answer
As above :)
Jay - Concord west(3 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. Especially being the large 3P size, there will be less strength in the pole as its a wider, unsupported span. 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!
