Introducing the exciting, lightweight and innovative new Apex Series from Vango, designed for adventurers who need a compact, high quality, lightweight tent. As part of the Earth Collection, the Apex is made using 70D Protex® Eco fabric, created from recycled single-use plastics. Unique to Apex is the 30cm pole sections which make it ideal for packing light on any adventure, from mountaineering, hiking and Duke of Edinburgh's Award activities to bike packing, as its unique pack design can attach to bike handlebars. The Apex makes excellent use of your available space and has a number of other features from strong PowerLite Alloy Poles, part mesh doors for ventilation in summer or use abroad and O-Shaped Doors that make it easy to open with one hand and also frames those views.
The Best Materials
The Apex Compact 100 is constructed from high-quality materials that are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. Its waterproof flysheet has a hydrostatic head of 3000mm, which provides excellent protection from rain and moisture. The tent also features a breathable inner tent with mesh ventilation panels that allow for improved air circulation and temperature regulation.
The tent features a single entry point and porch area, which provides a convenient space to store your gear and shelter from the elements. Reflective webbing on the guylines and a high-visibility orange system make it easy to spot in low-light conditions. The Apex Compact 100 has a pack size of 42 x 15 cm, which makes it easy to fit into a backpack or other gear storage. Its streamlined design minimizes excess weight and bulk, while maintaining a high level of liveability and functionality.
Lightweight and Compact
Setting up the Vango Apex Compact 100 is quick and easy, thanks to its simple yet sturdy pole system. The tent comes with alloy poles that are lightweight yet strong, and its flysheet is attached to the poles for added convenience. The tent's compact size also makes it easy to pitch in tight spaces or on uneven terrain.
Inner first pitching allows the inner tent to be set up quickly and easily, keeping the inner tent dry in wet conditions. TBS II Tension Band System provides additional stability in windy conditions, ensuring the tent stays upright and taut. Diamond Clear windows provide bright and clear views outside, while also allowing natural light into the tent. Patented Vango PowerFlex fibreglass poles are lightweight yet strong, providing a stable and sturdy structure. Breathable polyester inner tent reduces condensation and ensures a comfortable sleeping environment.
