Hilleberg AKTO

Hilleberg AKTO 4.5 5 2 2
This tent looked after me in the Artic I walked across the Abisko mountain range (last week) in 5.5 days - every day my feet hurt, I was hungry and I was tired. And as much as the views were stunning and I thoroughly enjoyed it one thing I could guarantee was that my tent would quick to put up, it would keep me warm and dry and I could 'stash' all my stuff in it. The Hilleberg AKTO did that. It is a very well thought out design and brilliantly executed. This tent is the best in it's class. 19 August 2013
Fantastic lightweight one person tent. Very quick and easy to pitch in all weathers. Plenty of room and good design features and very good quality. Packed this tent is fairly small and easy to fit in a rucsac. My first pitching from the bag using no instructions took 7 minutes to the point where it could be used. It is worth spending another 5 mins adjusting the guy ropes to get the tension and shape correct. Once up put in a clove hitch on all the guys at the pegs as this then allows you to adjust each one without affecting the other. There are ten pegs in all, 4 at the corners of the ground sheet and 6 outer guy ropes points. After the first pitching, having fitted the inner and the foot print ( a worthy investment I might add) I have not separated the three items since. Leave it all together and then pitching the tent the next time could not be simpler, especially if it is raining, a real practical bonus. With the footprint fitted getting in and out of the tent in wet conditions is much easier and allows you to put stuff outside of the inner without it getting wet. Getting in and out of the tent is not very easy and is one of the design flaws of the tent. The fly sheet door when opened drips water onto the inner and footprint and does not clip back properly and the clip is a fiddle. The same goes for the inner door and you can get in a bit of a mess if you are trying to get in quickly during a downpour. Once in side there is a good amount of space and cooking inside the fly sheet in bad conditions is possible. Condensation after a nights sleep can be a real problem so use the zipped vents on the fly at all times to reduce this except in extreme conditions. Use the fly sheet door vent as well. Taking down the tent is so easy and quick that in a hurry and with practice you can have it down and folded in 4 minutes if dry keeping the flysheet, the inner and footprint all connected. Overall a really good quality tent that is simple to pitch in all conditions and I would recommend it to anyone despite the flaws I have mentioned. 27 May 2012

The Akto tent is an exceptionally lightweight solo tent for the weight conscious. This Hilleberg one-person tent boasts an innovative design that allows it to provide exceptional space for its pack size and weight. The award-winning Akto tent offers unmatched stability for a single pole tent due to its construction and such as features as fibreglass rods in the corners, which strengthen the tent without significant increase in the overall weight.

The Akto tent offers full four-season usage with a full-length outer tent, bathtub inner tent and three effective vents - two at the ends and one up high for maximum "chimney effect". As with all the Hilleberg range that we are stocking, the Akto can be assembled quickly and efficiently by erecting the inner and outer tent simultaneously due to a linking system. This is particularly useful in the rain to avoid getting the inner tent wet.
