Vango has a long and illustrious history in designing and manufacturing outdoor products. Trying to summarise all that information and history on one page is challenging, but it's not in our nature to shirk at a daunting task.
Here are some key facts about Vango:
Vango was established in the West of Scotland in 1966.
The name Vango is in fact an anagram of Govan, the area in Glasgow where Vango originates from.
Vango and Force Ten by Vango are both part of the AMG Group which owns and distributes various high profile brands within the outdoor industry.
Vango and Force Ten are both synonymous with designing and producing products that suit the needs of those wanting to spend time in the outdoors.
Every tent, rucksack, sleeping bag and accessory designed is packed full of experience, reliability, quality, innovation, design and usability.
A brand with true heritage, Force Ten is recognised for durable and high performance expedition mountaineering tents. The range includes leading edge designs that meet the extreme needs of mountaineers, climbers, runners, adventurers and explorers. The Force Ten Classic tent, the first produced by the Vango brand, is still frequently seen on mountain summits and is one of the most iconic pieces of outdoor kit.
