Robens Pioneer 3EX vs. Vango Mirage/Helvellyn 300
With the COVID-19 Lock-down still on, we set-up another #homecampsite for the late May holiday weekend.
This time, we decided to pitch two backpacking tents we have: the new Robens Pioneer 3EX and our older Vango Mirage 300, which is now available (with slightly different specs) as the Vango Helvellyn 300.
Both tents are three-person backpacking tents with a useful porch space. And although both can feet three people in, they are a lot more comfortable with just two people 😉
Plus, both the Robens and Vango tents have lightweight alloy tent poles and pegs.
We get a number of questions that ask how things compare, so with the two different tents out, let’s have a look.

The table below shows how the three tents stack up. For a comparison of all the specs, tap here.
Although the Vango Mirage 300 and the Vango Helvellyn 300 look the same, the specs are slightly different. The newer Vango Helvellyn has a lower hydrostatic head and is slightly smaller.
