Tents


These tradition metal framed tents were manufactured in the 1970's in the U.K. They are made from good quality heavy cotton and origionally designed to high altitude depolyment. They have Cotton fly sheet which covers the Internal chamber with heavy guage zip opening and a thick intergrated waterproof ground sheet.The seams are all triple folded and double or triple stitched and poles are made from steel and not and inferior metal that will snap.

These are not a lightweight budget tents, they are 8kgs total weight, 70cm x 17cm packed size and were made by Sports Touring Ltd and Branded Conquest manufactured in Fareham Hampshire used Sail making Technology by Sail Makers using superior Cottons and tread by people who knew materials failure was not an option.

They were purchased by Vango in the early 1970’s who desperately wanted to enter into tent manufacture but had no idea and thus the Vango Force 10 range was born and this very tent was rebranded the Force 10 and is identical in every way just does not have the Vango logo on the outside. So if you know how good a Vango tent is, then these tents are the bases for what was and still is the best tent range ever produced.

That said these are not museum or classic tents to be treated lightly, amazingly they have been stored well in secure buildings and are in very good condition.

There are 2 options to choose from:

Grade 1
 Has clear signs of use and may have small marks or a D ring missing on the ground sheet, may have had replacement zips.

Grade 2
 Has professional repairs to the fly sheet or internal chamber or ground sheet and may have D rings missing or has stains or marks to the fly sheet but is still fit for use and ideal for groups, scouts, schools ect.
 
Final Note, we have hundreds of these all stored in very well conditioned buildings for 30-40 years sorting and grading many tents is a difficult and time consuming task and whist our staff work hard to ensure they check every possible part of these tents we know from our extensive history selling these products damage can be missed and make allowances for this both on price and with our back up service.

Customer feedback has highlighted that the tent pegs are small gauge wire pegs
and not always suitable so make allowances to replace these.
