These are but a few qualities in the Vango Omega 350. The fact that it can be assembled in 10-minutes by one person means quick disassembly too. It also helps that the poles are color-coded with the sleeves, for speed. There is an inner door for the sleeping area which has a mesh window for good ventilation. There are also plenty of inner storage pockets.
At the end of your trip, the provided storage bag has an extra-large opening and straps for compressing the tent inside.

How to Pitch a Vango Omega 350 Tent
There’s no better way to learn how to do something, than by watching someone else do it. First, we give you Vango’s video, so you can see for yourself how easy the Vango Omega is to pitch.
Time needed: 10 minutes.
Simple to follow instructions on how to pitch your Vango Omega 350 tent. There are three main sections to the Vango Omega tent: the outer, the inner and the living area groundsheet.
Always close zippers to doors and windows when you take your tent down, so it’s easier to assemble next time. Leave your inner tent attached with the bottom clips, when you put the Omega 350 tent down. This saves time when putting it back up again.
- Step 1 – Spread The Outer Tent
Spread the outer tent on the ground of your pitch, putting it the right way around for the 2-side doors. Before you begin, you must assemble the 3-poles.
- Step 2 – Assemble the 3 Poles
Insert your color-coded poles into the right pole-sleeves. Push the poles up until the tent concertina’s into 3 arches. At one side, pop all the poles into the eyelets in their relevant anchored straps. Then do the other side.
- Step 3 – Taut The Tent
Pull out the front and back of the tent, and peg the corners so the tent is taut. Peg the rest of the tent down, including all the guy lines. Your outer tent is now assembled.
- Step 4 – Spread Out The Inner Tent
Spread out the floor of the inner tent. This is where it comes in handy if you left the clips attached previously. Attach all the clips in place from back to front, bottom to top.
- Step 5 – Attach The Groundsheet
The final part is the unattached groundsheet in the living area. Clip this in place so it’s a bathtub shape, keeping out drafts and water.
Now, enjoy your outdoor vacation.

Camping is a popular way to enjoy an outdoor vacation, so make sure you choose the right type of tent. The Vango Omega 350 will sleep up to 3 people. If you have more in your party, why not look at getting a larger tent rather than several smaller ones.
Read our review on The Best 12-person Tents. If there are fewer people in your party, then you will have lots of room on your vacation.
If you’re hiking, then it makes sense to carry a smaller tent around with you. That’s where the Vango Omega 350 is perfect. Of course, there are other 3-man tents, very similar, such as the Coleman Coastline Compact. But the living area is not as roomy and it’s only a summer tent. A Vango is for all seasons.
If you’re lucky enough to be camping out on warm evenings, be even more adventurous and try sleeping in a hammock. Read all about it in our article on The Best Hammock with Mosquito Nets. That way, you don’t need to worry about bugs while you’re asleep.
