BikeRadar Gives Vango Erebus 3+ Great Review
This luxuriously spacious three-man tent from Vango’s top-end Force 10 line-up definitely falls into the touring end of the spectrum of on-bike-adventuring rather than ultra-light backpacking.
However, at just 2.6kg for the whole lot, it’s hardly a heavyweight for such a large tent and will be perfect for multi-day adventuring with pals in the post-lockdown era.
The flysheet of the tent is constructed from lightweight 20-denier silicone-coated nylon and the inner is even lighter at 15-denier.
However – and critically for the typically wet conditions encountered here in the UK – the floor is made from heavyweight 70-denier nylon. This can be backed-up with an optional footprint if desired.
The tent is available with or without the large vestibule area. I’d recommend opting for this option because it only adds a small amount of weight to the overall package of the tent but massively increases storage for panniers and adds a useful cooking area.
The poles fold down to a very manageable 46cm long. This means they’ll easily slot into most panniers or frame bags.
If you’re using flat bars and want to take a more bike packing-like approach to your overnight adventuring, they could conceivably be lashed to the front of the bike also.
