User-friendly pitching and packing

Simple and quick to pitch the Vango Alpha CLR can be pitched and ready to go in 10 minutes. And with inner first pitch the tent can be used without the flysheet in warmer climates. Further benefits include high visibility guy lines making it easier to see in lower light and reflective webbing to pick up torchlight, so the pegging points are easy to spot if you need to pitch when it’s getting dark. And when it’s time to go the fast pack tent bag makes life easier with an oversized opening that allows for easy packing and compression to control pack size.

Comfortable camping

Boasting a part mesh inner door and breathable polyester inner allows for increased ventilation, whilst keeping bugs out. Diamond clear windows maximise light and visibility to provide a bright and airy environment whilst nightfall bedrooms help reduce early morning light so your sleep pattern isn’t disrupted and dictated by the sunrise. The Vango Alpha CLR is also fitted with conveniently positioned lantern hanging points in the living and bedroom areas and inner pockets to help organise your essential items.

Waterproof tent fabric
Fully wind and rain tested

The Vango Alpha CLR has been weather tested to standard EN ISO 5912 for peace of mind making it suitable for use in wet weather for occasional and weekend camping (storms and extreme weather should be avoided). All flysheet and groundsheet seams are factory taped for a watertight seal and it comes with a robust and hardwearing Waterproof PE Groundsheet capable of withstanding the rigours of the most active campers.

Sentinel eco dura fabric
Environmentally Conscious

With a development focus on the environment, Vango have taken single-use waste plastic and transformed it into their signature Sentinel Eco fabric. Packed with the durability and quality you would expect from Vango, Sentinel Eco also benefits from a 3000mm HH rating. Perfect for weekend and holiday camping while supporting our environment.

Lots of space

Great tent for the price. Held up really well over weekend camping holiday where it rained (surprise surprise) in the Lake District. But it kept me warm and dry and was easy to put up. More spacious inside than expected.

Fantastic Tent

I received this tent last week and tried it out over the weekend. It was absolutely fantastic! The setup process was incredibly easy and only took a few minutes. Although it's not specificallty a blackout tent, it inside was very dark inside and ideal for me since I'm a light sleeper. The tent also has side pockets where I stored items like a torch and tissues that I might have needed during the night. There was plenty of room for both of our large bags, and our collie had more than enough space to sleep in the front section. While I haven't tested the waterproofing yet, I can confirm that it held up well against sand, which was easily removed from the front section by lifting the flap. Overall, I highly recommend this tent!

Excellent value!

I really like this tent; it feels spacious enough for two people and accommodated all of the bedding we brought with us. We had to weather a storm on the first night we used it, with strong winds and heavy rain, but the tent held up perfectly with no leaks or other issues. The porch is surprisingly large and extremely useful; it's spacious enough to sit or crouch in outside of the sleeping pod, and the attached groundsheet makes it perfect for storing shoes and bags without worrying about mud or damp. Setting up the tent can be a bit tricky, as it uses Velcro instead of clips for the top layer, and the inner layer needs to go up first, which can be challenging in stormy weather. However, this is likely something that gets easier with familiarity, and it's always helpful to set up the tent in good weather conditions. Overall, I think it's great value for money and easy to fold back into the bag, which is definitely a plus.

So far so good!

Bought this on the recommendation of Ligo as it was rated as one of their best buys and was a good price! So far I've only briefly tested the tent out but was easy to put up and looks pretty sturdy! Happy with my purchase so far.


I purchased this tent because I needed a smaller option for festivals and short camping trips. Although two of us pitched it, it could easily have been done by one person - it was really straightforward! We had it set up, checked, and packed away again within 10 minutes, ready for our next camping adventure. The oversized bag that comes with the tent is a fantastic idea. The quality of the tent is excellent, with a double skin to provide added protection. I was also impressed with how quickly it arrived - less than 24 hours after I ordered it. Thank you!
