Who Has Vango Partnered With This Time?
This time Vango are partnering with Europe’s largest conservation charity, The National Trust.
The National Trust looks after more than 250,000 hectares of countryside, 780 miles of coastline and 500 historic houses, parks and gardens, so that people and nature can thrive. With a shared passion and enthusiasm for the great outdoors Vango aims to help contribute to the National Trust through the sales of their National Trust Collection.
Vango is pledging a minimum of £20,000 to help the National Trust look after what is important. Nature, history and the natural beauty of our country that so many of us love to spend time in. Together they want everyone to be able to continue to enjoy all of these things.
The National Trust Collection
So what is the National Trust Collection?
The collection consists of 4 tents and 3 sleeping bags that will be available soon. So we will talk you through these.
Vango is doing their bit to help the environment by producing quality tents and sleeping bags where the material is made from Recycled Plastics.
The collection is made from a new Sentinel Eco™ fabric. This is created from recycled plastic bottles which come from waterways, streets and landfills. The sleeping bag collection complements the tents range and uses a 100% recycled polyester filling made reprocessed plastic bottles.
The fabric in this collection will stand out as it has a very nicely printed National Trust oakleaf design on a blue fabric.
These tents and sleeping bags are exclusive to Go Outdoors if you would like to view any of them in more detail or purchase one.

At the higher spec of the tent collection is the Antrim Air 600XL. A lovely 6 person family tent with pre-attached sun canopy made from 301 plastic bottles. With front and side entrances, nightfall bedrooms, diamond clear windows, skytrack and airspeed system. This tent is rich on features for you and your family.

The Cumbria 500 is a very practical 5 person tunnel tent made from 181 recycled bottles. This tent has a pre-attached extention to help bring the outside in and give you some extra space without being stuck in the tent. Again nightfall bedrooms are a great way to enjoy a more rested sleep.

This collection features 3 sleeping bags. The sleeping bags are set to be released and ready for sale in May 2021. As well as featuring the blue fabric to match the tents they also feature the lovely oakleaf design. All the sleeping bags have a polyester fill made from recycled bottes.
The Gwent single sleeping bag is a 2 season, square-shaped bag. With 100% recycled filling and a printed polyester fabric this is an ideal bag for the summer months. This sleeping bag has a comfort rating of 9 degrees this bag comes with hanging loops, integrated head rest and it’s own stuff sack for transporting.
The Gwent double, as the name suggests is the double version of the Gwent bag and offers all the same qualities as the single.
Vango’s third and last sleeping bag in the collection is the Surrey 250. As the sleeping bags have not yet launched I do not have the specs on this one but will update the post as soon as I know.
Make sure to check back in May when the sleeping bags are released for full information on them.
A Fantastic Collection
We really like this collection and can’t wait to see it in person. I love the oakleaf design on the flysheet fabric of the tent and on sleeping bags. We think it gives it a very stylish look. The collection is sure to stand out in any campsite.
There seems to be a tent suitable no matter which type of camper you are and the fact that it is supporting the National Trust is fantastic. Without the National Trust caring for so much of our beautiful landscapes and historical buildings they would easily fall into disrepair and would not give so many of us the enjoyment that they do.
