“ The Hydra has an excellent pedigree and has been in our range for more than a decade. A tough semi-geodesic tent designed for the trekker or backpacker who will appreciate the combination of lightness, stability and spaciousness. „
Just got back from camping in my Hydra 200, and was astonished how stable it was, I mean I was at at very windy exposed site. Many tents blew away last night, wagons had to be ratchet strapped down, as they started to move in the wind.I double uped on pegs, two in every posible guyrope, and peg hole, and then knocked some long steel rods over half a metere into the clay ground, but we stayed up. The exciting bit, the Vango Hydra 200 I was in stayed up in the wind that was measured to be at 108mph last night, with no trouble what so ever!Buy a vango Hydra if you want a seriously stable tent!
size and stability - absolutely massive 3 person tent, 2 doors and very high quality profiled design and materials. Old design has evolved to produce an outstanding product; favourite feature is the little pocket to stuff the door to the inner in so it dosn't get all muddy. I have Used it several times in the Ogwyn Valley and it barely budged in the wind.
If you are looking for a tent to use when you are driving to a campsite that you can trust in any weather this is the fellow. The size of the vestibule means you never are climbing around gear, and you don't suffer from 'cabin-fever' when the weather keeps you in.
