Thank you so much for these amazing tents. Had a great time in my Akto here in Australia. Regards Falk
Dear Hilleberg, My dog Cruz and I had a great weekend in the Uinta mountains this past weekend. I love my Nallo 3 GT! I purchased this tent last year. It's a bit big for just me and the dog, but it rained for almost 12 hours straight, and I've never had a tent keep me so dry. I especially love the huge vestibule space. Thanks for making such great products and standing behind your work. Thanks, Ryan Johnson
Hey Hilleberg, I wanted to share a story about one of my adventures this summer. I was backpacking with a friend in the Grand Mesa, outside of Grand Junction Colorado, USA. The weather was roughly in the mid 90s, very high humidity. The mosquitoes were so thick that you couldn’t have any skin exposed. I wasn’t going to bring my Tarra, because of the warm weather but I did anyways. If I didn’t bring my tent, I would’ve probably died I got very sick from the mosquitoes and the poison water. My Tarra gave me a place of refuge. I also wanted to share a couple photos from some of my other adventures with the Tarra. The first one in the trees we were backpacking to a place Called “Lakes of the Clouds“ the snow was deep, the trail was flooded, the nights were cold, rainy, and windy. The weather never phased my Tarra!! The second is me chilling in my Tarra during a rain storm at 10000 feet. Thank you for making such great tents. Your friend always, Dale Jimeson
Hi Hilleberg, I wanted to share a photo from a recent trip of my 17 year old and Sam's brand new Nallo 2. We’ve taken our Nallo wildcamping all over, Scotland, Wales, Alps, Dolomites, Ecuador, and it’s never let us down. Regards, Louis
Hello Hilleberg, When Roberto and I walked across Lake Baikal, we bet on a Keron 4 GT - and it was the right decision! The winter in Siberia can throw a lot at you, especially if you are in the middle of an ice surface without protection. It's good to have a bomb-proof, portable home that also offers luxurious space and clever details. The materials and functions of the Keron are excellent and since we pulled the tent in a pulka, the weight was no problem either. With a few ice screws and the Abalakov technique we were prepared for any wind and the two vestibules were the garage for the pulkas - very practical. Camping on clear, kilometer-deep water is an impressive experience and with Hilleberg equipment a safe and comfortable adventure. Thank you very much for your commitment to making excellent equipment. Olaf and Roberto
Hi Hilleberg, This picture was taken in the Victorian Alps in Mount Baw Baw National Park, Australia. Akto makes a perfect one man tent as its strong enough to take any conditions up there but light enough to carry. Also love the large porch for organizing my gear. Cheers Ollie
Hi Hilleberg, We thought you might like this picture from the North Saskatchewan River in Canada. Yet another shift for the Tonners. The Allak is wonderful in our new Seaward Kayak. Saying that, we must tell you how well the New Rogen worked for the backpacking trips we did in Arizona last winter. We spent 4 nights in the Grand Canyon and 8 in total in the Superstitious Mountains. Fantastic backpacking tent - when over 60 the light weight is kinder on the body. Fondly, Roz and Jeff
Hi Hilleberg, Here is a photo I took at Pikes Peak, Colorado, USA. Rain, wind +30 mph, no problem. I stayed very comfy. Thank you Hilleberg! Dale Jimeson
Hi Hilleberg, I've had the Staika now for 5 years and love this tent! Absolute beast of a tent. Recently spent 4 nights in the Mt Timpanogos Wilderness area located in Northern Utah. Being February I had snow, wind, and -5° F temperatures. This tent has never let me down. Also at 6'8" the tent has enough room for me and my custom sleeping bag. Thanks, Spencer Madsen
Hello, I was in Kenya on a safari in the Maasai Mara National Park together with my daughter and some friends. There, we slept in our beautiful red Nallo tent that withstood an ant invasion, a harsh thunderstorm, and a visit from an elephant. In addition, my sister and I had it as our home throughout the Green Ribbon (a through hike of the Scandinavian mountain range). Truly the best tent!!! I am so pleased with it. Warm outdoor greetings, Valborg Axelgren
Dear Petra Hilleberg, Just a note to thank you for the Nammatj tent! I don’t know why it took so long, and so many other Hilleberg tents, but I am so happy with my new Nammatj. It might be the best tent in the world, but it is certainly the best tent I have ever used. I used it in the Anza-Borrego desert purposefully during the rare, I’d like to think unprecedented, rains of last week – and while the water ran over, around, and under the Nammatj, I was dry as could be, smiling and almost laughing out loud. The wind blew too, I think it was at least 25 mph – I didn’t dare take my little weather meter out of the tent – and the Nammatj shrugged a little bit and stayed firm. Thank you very much! Tom
Hi Hilleberg, I wanted to share a photo I took on a weekend trip last October. Besides longer wild camp holidays, I try to be in nature during the weekends with friends or on my own. Autumn for sure is on the the best seasons for the swiss Alps – clear air with fantastic views, colorful leaves and silence (the cows are already down in the valleys). That weekend in October, I chose the Hilleberg Unna – a great, stable and spacious solo tent that allows an amazing view on the landscape from the inside – and hiked an off the trek trail in the canton of Glarus (altitude around 2000 m). The next morning, heavy autumnal wind blasted and proved the incredible strength of this fantastic tent. Just amazing! Solo camping is always special: the silence and the isolation is a thrilling but also liberating experience. Being in nature and observing animals in the surrounding landscapes is exciting. Getting back home and into work afterwards is like switching between different worlds. Thank you for making the tents that make it possible. Thomas Jarek
Hi Hilleberg, I wanted to give you a quick update regarding my Soulo tent. I have been using it in Patagonia for just a couple weeks, but so far I am loving it! Here are a couple pictures taken near the shore of Belgrano Lake in Perito Moreno National Park, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina during a scouting trip to lay out new hiking trails in the park. All the best. Jedediah Talbot OBP Trailworks, LLC
Hi Hilleberg Team, My Soulo has been the tent that I reach for every time I head out on an adventure in the mountains of Alaska. The security it gives in harsh weather allows me to sleep well, either in the middle of winter on a glacier or at 7000 ft in the autumn while mountain hunting. While not the lightest one-person shelter, that number does not tell the whole story. Due to the warmth of the solid inner tent and the security of knowing that It will not collapse during storms, allows me to use an ultra light down quilt and neo air sleeping pad. The total sleep system weight is thus minimized, all the while maintaining absolute reliability. Ben Reynolds Splitboard ambassador for AMPLID Snowboards and Mountain Hunter.
