F10 Xenon UL 2+

Xenon Ultralight 2 utilises Gothic Arch poles combined with TBS Pro to create a stable two pole tunnel design which is quick and easy to pitch and strike. Perfect for those seeking greater headroom in the inner tent area, Xenon 2 also features a large vent over the door allowing plenty of airflow, and for UK trips, preventing the rain falling into the inner when the door is open. In a low weight, small pack size, Xenon 2 is a great year round performer. More >>

Xenon UL2

I used the Xenon UL2 this weekend and the wind and rain really picked up during the night, at some point changing direction and hitting the tent side on. I got out to have a look and I could see the sides between the poles were billowing around quite a bit, but otherwise, the tent felt solid, flexing with the wind a little, but never in any real danger (inside, I could hardly notice). I would estimate the wind gusts to have been between 25 - 30 mph (I suspect many campers often massively overestimate the wind speed) so not massively high, but enough to give me an idea of how it would perform in a storm. It was rock solid and would easily handle higher winds imo. The TBS system definitely helps stabilise imo, I might add one to the rear for winter use. I did wonder whether wind driven rain would enter through the rear vent, but no problem at all, I think its been designed to counter that particular concern. I'm planning a cycle tour next may, travelling through Sweden and Finland and I will hopefully use the Xenon. My only slight concern is finding enough flat space at times for the footprint whilst wild camping, but the interior room will be a nice change from the tiny UL tents I usually use, so the weight trade-off is worth it for me. I also really like the off-white interior, which makes it nicer to spend time in and all the pockets and also the fact it fits in my pannier, with poles as well is a real bonus.

Brilliant Cycling Tent

Great all weather tent for cycling with. It weighs the same as many one man tents so I use it as such. Loads of room for one person and all panniers etc. If the weather's not good there's plenty space for food prep, relaxing etc and the porch can even store my bike when I'm sleeping if required. All in all I'd say it's an outstanding tent for cycling tours.

Very capable tent

I used this tent for a week in the Scottish highlands. There isn't much to fault with it. Very spacious for two people with gear, and holds up well in rain and wind. The provided pegs are a bit flimsy, but can obviously be replaced easily. Make sure you also get the matching footprint when camping in wet places. The attachment of the footprint could be a bit easier - i.e. Hilleberg style plastic bars that go through a ring instead of the clip on and colour coding so you know how it fits on to the tent. In general I would question the durability of the plastic used for the tensioners and attachments, but all in all it compares very nicely to the much more expensive Hilleberg Anjan 2 GT.

Excellent performance

I have now used the UL2+ in strong winds and torrential rain and the inside has remained completely uncompromised. Good design has gone into this tent which offers amazing space and room for a low weight, the competition should take note as similar designs cost near twice the price. For two people with a lot of gear the space offered makes life easy and comfortable. Well done Vango!
