For those who want to move fast and travel as light as possible – while still maintaining an impressive level of comfort – the Enan is the ideal choice. Seen here in Lofoten Norway.

While the airy Enan is a superb choice for summer hikes, its surprising strength make it equally suitable for more challenging conditions, as here on a very cold and rainy spring day in the Cairngorm mountains of Scotland.

Enan 2015

This item is discontinued. Please check the special offers page for price and availability.

Starting in 2016 the Enan is made with Kerlon 1000 in its outer tent (tear strength of 8 kg/17.6 lb), which makes it stronger but slightly heavier than the original version in Kerlon 600. These tents will also come with Y-peg ULs instead of Tri-Pegs. The new weight is 1.2 kg (2 lbs 10 oz), and the new price is $635.


We still have a few of the original Enans in stock. They have Kerlon 600 outer tents, and are packaged with Tri-Pegs, but everything else in these tents is the same as in the 2016 models. The Kerlon 600 Enan is the lightest tent we have ever made, weighing 1.1 kg (2 lbs 7 oz). While we have discontinued Kerlon 600, it is an excellent fabric that is amazingly light yet still offers an impressive 6 kg (13 lb) tear strength. These are $500.



we modeled the enan after our award-winning, best-selling Akto, with the goal of making a three season version that was as light as possible while still having the strength we require from a Hilleberg tent. We knew that we could have made the Enan even lighter, but we also knew that doing so would yield less than “true Hilleberg” durability and function.

We used the Akto’s proven single pole design and its single-ended full pole sleeve system, then reduced weight by using lighter fabrics in both the inner and outer tents. Indeed, we developed our 10 denier, Kerlon 600 outer tent fabric specifically for the Enan. At the same time, we kept the same 9 mm DAC NSL pole the Akto uses, because the weight savings of a smaller diameter pole is quite negligible, while the loss in strength is significant.

As with our other Yellow Label tents, the Enan’s venting system is built into its construction: a full mesh inner tent door, in combination with outer tent head and foot ends of tough mesh both allows and encourages constant air flow. For very windy and rainy conditions, Kerlon 600 fabric panels can be rolled down and secured to cover the outer tent’s mesh ends. When not in use, these panels roll up and stuff into integrated pockets.

During development, our testers used the Enan for everything from adventure travel in Southeast Asia, to backpacking trips in Europe and the US. All praised how easy it was to pitch, its roominess and its comfort, and all were quite impressed with its strength – and, of course, with its very pleasing light weight!

What’s the story with Kerlon 600? Why did it go away?

We originally developed Kerlon 600 as a very lightweight outer fabric for our smaller tents in our three-season Yellow Label line of tents. We were very happy with the result, and put it into production in our Enan tent.

In 2015, In order to be more environmentally conscientious and to stay consistent with new REACH regulations, we had to slightly alter the formula of the coating in all of our Kerlon fabrics. This change affected our Kerlon 600 fabric substantially, to the point that it became too hard to work with. As a result, we discontinued its use, and, from 2016, replaced it with Kerlon 1000 in the Enan model.

Any tent made with Kerlon 600 has fabric that was produced before the change, and so is not in any way affected. The Kerlon 600 is an excellent fabric, with a very light weight and an excellent 6 kg tear strength.

At first glance, our Enan solo tent looks remarkably like our all-season Red Label Akto. And, indeed, we modeled the Enan, which we introduced in 2015, on the Akto, which we debuted in 1995.

In its 20 years, the iconic Akto has more than proven itself. Hikers, cyclists, climbers, paddlers, and hunters continue to count on it in a wide array of all-season conditions and terrains. “It has even been used quite successfully on North and South Pole expeditions,” says Bo Hilleberg, company founder and chief of product development. “But this is not really something we recommend!”

So when we began envisioning a very light Yellow Label solo tent, it made perfect sense to choose our Akto’s proven design as a starting place. As Bo points out, however, “the Enan is much more than simply a lighter weight Yellow Label ‘version’ of the Akto.”

When we began developing our Yellow Label, three-season tent line in 2010, we had been making all-season tents for over 35 years. From that long experience, we knew that the term “three season” could vary wildly depending on location. So we designed our first Yellow Label tents to be very light, yet strong enough for use during the snow-free months of the year, in fairly protected conditions, but completely independent of geographic locale.

With the Enan, our goal was to create a roomy one-person tent that fulfilled our “snow-free adventure” concept. All Yellow Label tents are designed to be very light and strong, and the Enan is no exception: we wanted to make it as light as possible for its intended use, but with all the requisite strength for the conditions needed for its intended use.

We began with our Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric, the same as we use in our Anjan and Rogen models. We also developed a new, lighter weight inner tent fabric and a lighter weight mesh. Next we considered how else we could create weight savings. In keeping with the Enan’s snow-free use, we wanted to pare down the original Akto design, but without losing any function. The result is the triangular ends, which, according to Bo, save “a notable amount of weight.” We also “3-seasoned” the Akto’s head and foot ends, which are made from a breathable and air-permeable snow proof fabric. For the Enan version, we used full mesh for constant air flow, and then built in stowable flaps that can be deployed in the worst rainy conditions. And, as with all Yellow Label tents, fixed mesh panels on the inner tent make venting a full-time affair. “The end result,” says Bo, “is exactly what we wanted – a very light yet quite strong and roomy solo tent.”

Since its introduction a year ago, the Enan, like its Red Label sibling, the Akto, has proven itself a tough and versatile solo tent. We’ve heard from a great deal of users who have had great success with the Enan in a variety of conditions – including some that definitely push the limits of what the Enan was designed for. And we were honored that Germany’s largest outdoor magazine, Outdoor, awarded the Enan its prestigious Editor’s Choice award in the summer of 2015.

While we originally built our reputation on all-season tents, we have always known that there were many users who wanted a lighter weight tent, and who didn’t need all-season strength and comfort. But we have never subscribed to the traditional concept of “3 season tents,” which always seemed to equate to “summer tents.” In part, the problem is that those three seasons – spring, summer, and fall – are very different in, say, northern Sweden, than they are in Australia.

In 2010, we began the project that would become our Yellow Label tents, which we introduced in 2012. Rather than creating the typical “3-season tents,” however, we set out to build lighter weight tents that would work well in more protected terrain but in all types of weather during the warmer, snow-free months of the year, regardless of geographic locale.

With the goal of maximizing light weight without sacrificing too much strength, we experimented with a variety of solutions. Initially, we put the poles on the inner tent, but still with a linked outer tent. After a number of such test tents literally flattened during wind testing, we adopted our proven system of linked but separable inner and outer tents, with the poles on the outer. This solution performed so much better, that we knew it was the ideal choice for these tents.

During this process, we also discovered that the weight savings from using smaller than 9 mm diameter poles – the same type of poles found in our Red Label, all-season tents – was slight, while the loss of strength was substantial. So, again, we stayed with the proven solution – 9 mm DAC NSL poles.

We did use lighter weight fabrics, in both inner and outer tents. For the outer tent, we developed Kerlon 1000. We knew that warmer weather, snow-free use does not place the same stress on a tent that true, all-season use does, but we still needed to maintain enough strength for heavy rains and windy conditions. Kerlon 1000 boasts a substantial 8 kg/17.6 lb tear strength.

Another way we saved weight without compromising strength was to integrate the venting directly into the construction. Rather than adding vents, which would have added weight, we built in full time venting, either through a space between the outer tent and the ground in the Anjan, Anjan GT, Rogen and Niak models, or through incorporating protected mesh panels into the outer tent, as found in the Enan.

The result is a group of tents that are ideal for users who go out below tree line and in more protected terrain in the snow-free months of the year, and who demand light weight, but not at the expense of strength enough for the conditions they might encounter.

  • Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric and 9 mm poles make for a very lightweight yet strong tent.
  • 3 season design: ventilation is built into the construction, and the inner tent mesh areas have no backing fabric panels.
  • Single pole construction offers excellent space to weight ratio and is an outstanding choice for mobile journeys.
  • Plenty of room for one occupant and his or her gear.
  • Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
  • Basic pitching requires six pegs: two in the corners of both the head foot ends, and one each in the head and foot end guy lines. The simple, single-opening, continuous pole sleeve and tensioner system is quick to pitch and remarkably stable.
  • The single entrance/single vestibule configuration affords easy access as well as storage space.
  • An optional footprint covers the entire area of the outer tent, including the vestibules. It connects directly to the tent, and can be left attached during pitching.
  • The inner tent can be replaced with a Mesh Inner tent (sold separately; see accessories).
  • The outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires optional pole holderes (see accessories).

Hilleberg Enan - Pitching Instruction

This is the official pitching instruction for the Hilleberg Enan. This film is a supplement to the instruction booklet. We recommend that you both read the booklet carfully as well as practice handling the tent before your first backcountry trip. Thank you for choosing a Hilleberg tent and enjoy your next adventure! For more information about Hilleberg and our products, please visit our website at http://www.hilleberg.com Hilleberg Enan - http://hilleberg.com/products/yellow-label/enan/enan.php Learn more about Hilleberg tents: Website - http://hilleberg.com Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/HillebergTheTentmaker Twitter - https://twitter.com/hilleberg Instagram - https://instagram.com/hilleberg_the_tentmaker/

While every Hilleberg tent comes with all the pegs, lines and poles you need, you may, from time to time, need replacements. You may also want to accessorize for more flexibility on your adventures: spare line runners, guy line, and pole holders let you customize your shelter to your needs; special circumstances may dictate special use pegs or additional poles for stability; or you may simply want different sorts of pegs. Footprints can extend the life of your tent and cut down on condensation in the vestibules, and a hank of our strong, light guy line cord is always useful.

Pole Holder Kit for Inner Tent

Extra pole holders are needed when you want to pitch the inner tent by itself. Link these to the corners of the inner, and place the ends of the poles into them. The Enan 2015 Pole Holder Kit is needed to pitch the Enan 2015 inner tent on its own.

Tri-Pegs

Tri-Peg

Tri-Peg

$20

Every new tent includes enough pegs to pitch it, but a spare peg or two can save you the frustration of losing one in the middle of a long trip. Our aluminum Tri-Peg is our lightest, and, like our V- and Y-Pegs, is gold anodized for high visibility. Its triangular cross section affords strength as well as good holding power in a range of soil types, and its purposefully smooth, polished corners were designed specifically for the lightweight 2mm guy line we use in our Yellow Label Tents. • 14 cm/5.5" • 9 g/0.3 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

Extra Poles

293 cm x 9 mm (1 pc.)

$38

9 mm Pole Section

$8

Your tent comes with poles, an extra repair section and aluminum repair sleeve, but spare poles can come in handy, both for repairs and for "double poling," which gives extra strength and stability.

Tent and Accessory Bags

While our various stuff bags are sized for our poles, pegs, and, of course, our tents, they are also ideal for organizing your gear. Our peg bag is great for holding toiletries or other small essentials, and our larger bags, although sized for our tents, are ideal for your spare clothes, cooking gear, food or the like.

Peg bags are available only in black, and in our sturdiest XP fabric. Standard pole bags come in green or red, while the burlier XP pole bag is only available in black. Standard and XP tent bags in all sizes come in green, red and sand, come in five sizes, and have a round, sewn-in bottom. The XP versions have a sewn-in handle, as well.
