Ideal for budget hikers adventuring in colder climates, the Nevis 200 2P Hiking Tent from Vango has a fly that can be pitched first so you can keep the inner dry when conditions aren’t ideal.
If you want to see the process of how to set up and pack away this tent, then our gear expert demonstrates how it’s done in this video. Michael kicks off the video by showing you what you get inside the bag, and how to orient the entrance away from the wind. He then pegs out the fly, shows you how to set up the main pole and tensioning poles, pegs out the guy ropes and demos how to tighten the internal tension band system.
Then for pack down, Michael shows you the whole process plus the trick of leaving the main pole in last so that it’s easier to fold up neatly to get it back into the bag – so check it out above for all the details.
