We are on a winning streak!
It’s the outdoor awards season again and all the top brands within the outdoor world have been putting their most innovative products forward to be judged by the industry's most experienced outdoor enthusiasts. After months of development it is always a little nerve wracking to have our latest innovations put under the microscope, but this year we had a sneaky feeling we might do quite well, and so we did!
Kicking off the awards season, was the Camping and Caravan Club who awarded our complete Trekking tent range with ‘Best Backpacking Tents’ - a welcome surprise. Our trekking range, many of which are recommended by the Duke of Edinburgh's Awards and the Scouts Association, includes features such as Protex® 70D polyester flysheets, high level pockets, large O-shaped inner doors and Vango PoweLite alloy poles. For further features and details, view the range here.
Next up were The Camping Magazines awards, and boy did we clean up well! Our team were extremely proud when our AirBeam Maritsa 600XL won Tent of the Year! It is part of our 2017 Elite collection, but many of you may have fond memories of the Maritsa if you were lucky enough to own its poled counterpart. However, the new and improved AirBeam version is a must have for this year’s camping season. Head to our website for more information and pictures: https://bit.ly/2o1dI9Y
At the same awards, our Taiga 500XL tent was also commended in the small family tent category. New for 2017, the Taiga is a great tent for those who are looking for an entry level AirBeam. It has an extremely flexible layout which includes, pre-angled beams to increase internal space and height, spacious king-sized bedrooms and a versatile pre-attached front extension.
Finally, to top it all off, our brand new AirHub Hex won Family Product of the Year at the Outdoor Industry Awards! This flexible AirBeam shelter, with 3 large doors and 6 mesh windows, inflates in minutes and is great for additional space on the campsite or in the garden.
We would like to say thank you to everyone that voted for us. This has definitely inspired us for the development of our 2018 range, who knows what’s next...
