Leading outdoor equipment manufacturer Vango, has won multiple coveted awards for its Project Hydrogen Tent and Radiate Sleeping Bag developments at Europe’s largest outdoor trade fair, OutDoor by ISPO.

The OutDoor by ISPO’s Outstanding Outdoor awards, which were announced in Munich today [30 June], celebrate innovation and products which make the outdoor experience more enjoyable, accessible and motivate people to explore the outdoor world in all its diversity. Winners were carefully selected by an independent international jury panel from various sectors within the industry in Annecy, France.

Unique to the Vango AirBeam® collection, the 2020 Project Hydrogen tent claimed the highly sought-after Outstanding Outdoor Gold Winner award by ISPO in the ‘Best Tent’ category. Judges were

impressed with the world’s lightest twin skin AirBeam® tent, particularly its technically advanced features including its strength, stability, internal space and super quick pitching time.

In addition to winning the Outstanding Outdoor Gold award in the ‘Best Tent’ category, Vango was also recognised in the ‘All Round Sleeping Bags’ category for its 2020 Radiate Sleeping Bag, receiving Outstanding Outdoor Winner 2019. The sleeping bag scored top marks for its innovative heated design, utilising a graphene panel in the construction, which is powered by a USB, suitable for use with a portable power bank, or mains campsite hook up.

Marketing Director, Rob Birrell commented: “Winning these prestigious awards for products in our 2020 collection, as well as being recognised by leading industry figures, is a real testament to our product development team and our continuous commitment to develop cutting edge outdoor equipment for our customers.

“I’m delighted to be part of a team which truly excels and makes its mark with the production of innovative outdoor kit as it enables so many more people to enjoy all types of adventures in the great outdoors. We cannot wait to see what our customers make of these products, alongside the rest of our 2020 collection.”
