Terra Nova has continued the commitment to innovation and quality established by Wild Country Ltd. Our aim in whatever we do is to be ‘Best in Class’ and we have developed an enviable reputation worldwide for the reliability and technical expertise of our award winning designs. Our heritage is in mountain tents which are still a regular sight on Everest and at the poles, where they face some of the most demanding conditions. The new millennium saw development shift to lightweight tents. Terra Nova launched the first sub 1kg tent with a Guinness World Record to mark the achievement. Terra Nova lightweight tents are now an equally familiar sight at mountain marathons. Lightweight packs and sleeping bags have since been added to its portfolio enabling people to have a tent, pack and sleeping bag weighing 1kg!

With a strong heritage to be proud of, all Vango gear is developed from experience. The outdoors is our DNA. Since 1966 Vango has been developing tents and outdoor equipment for a wide spectrum of outdoor users who trust and rely on the quality they know comes with the Vango mark. Coming from Scotland, we know a thing or two about weather conditions.

We take great pride in our research and development which has led to many groundbreaking products which continue to perform and exceed expectations long after others have fallen by the wayside. We have, and continue to achieve true innovation.

Our revolutionary AirBeam® tents are transforming the way people camp. The inflatable beams rapidly fill, allowing you to pitch even a large family tent in a matter of minutes!

We’ve rolled out our AirBeam® technology out into a range of AirAway drive-away awnings for campervans and motorhomes and static AirAwnings for caravans. The awnings have multiple fitting options and are compatible with a wide range of vehicles.

Family camping has never been so comfortable. Whether you want to relax or get active, Vango tents and tent additions incorporate intelligent features to make sure you have the best holiday possible. For a luxury camping experience look out for panoramic Vista windows, ‘lights out’ inner tent fabric and optional fitted tent carpets.

Go light, go wild, go explore! Vango trekking tents are designed to be lightweight with a small pack size, but still deliver great stability and strength in adverse weather conditions.

Vango synthetic and down sleeping bags offer superb warmth to weight ratios using premium fabrics and fills. From old favourites like the Explorer rucksack through to modern classics such as the Sherpa, our rucksacks are well featured to ensure a great fit and a comfortable carry. Look out for rucksacks, tents and sleeping bags recommended by the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

Mountain biking, festivals, hill walking; whatever you like to fill your weekends with our adventure range is designed to make it easy for you to get away with your friends. Features such as gothic arch give you extra head room, and large vestibules provide plenty of room for kit or even just for hanging out.

Vango make tents and equipment for families to camp in comfort, adventurers to go light and wild, and for mountaineers to survive in extreme conditions. From campsite to summit, trail to mountain, Vango makes every inch of the outdoors your playground.
