About Vango

Vango was established in the West of Scotland in 1966 and the company remains based at the gateway to the spectacular Scottish Highlands in the company’s headquarters in Port Glasgow.Vango makes tents and equipment for families to camp in comfort, adventurers to go light and wild, and for mountaineers to survive in extreme conditions. 

From campsite to summit, from the trail to mountain, Vango products allow everyone to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. Every tent, rucksack, sleeping bag and accessory has been designed by genuine outdoor enthusiasts resulting in gear packed full of experience that epitomises the Vango ethos of reliability, quality, innovation, design and usability. 

Vango has a long and memorable history in designing and manufacturing outdoor equipment. From pioneering AirBeam® tent technology in 2011 to sending a tent into space in 2012 to rolling out AirBeam® technology into a range of AirAway™ drive-away awnings and AirAwnings™ for campervans, caravans, and motorhomes, Vango has always been at the forefront of cutting-edge design and innovation. 

Vango’s sustainability outlet, Camping Recycled, is committed to minimising how much outdoor kit goes to waste by re-furbishing tents and awnings. If products are beyond repair, the team strips off every component that can be used again and use those parts to repair other tents and awnings.
