The Outwell Vigor is a well designed small tent that's ideal for those quick family weekend camps.
Our Score: 9.3/10
- A great design, giving you the benefits of a smaller tent, with the practicalities of a larger tent. The canopy design is also a real bonus.
The not so good
- I wouldn't want to spend more than a few nights with a family in this tent - but that's not what this is for. This tent is ideal for weekend camping.

If you just want to get away for a quick weekend camp, taking a big tent can be a bit of a hassle. However, even a family of 5 can share a well designed smaller tent for a night or two.
This is certainly the case with the Outwell Vigor, which comes in a 3, 4, and 5 person layout. The 5 person layout is our recommended choice for families, which is the version of the Outwell Vigor shown here.
The packed tent only weights 9.8 kg with a pack size of 29x67cm, making it easy to transport and pitch.
As you can tell from the photo, it's an 'interesting' shape, which is actually very practical. It gives you a much larger area for getting changed or moving about, but keeping the sleeping area small, which is all you need for a quick weekend camp.
Another feature I really like with this tent is the canopy that comes with it, providing you with some extra protection, both over head and from the sides.
Here's a quick video I made of this tent (jump to 1:00 to see the Outwell Vigor).
