The Anaris includes outer tent, inner tent, attached guy lines with line runners, pegs, stuff bags for pegs and tent, and instructions. Poles are not included.

Even though it is our lightest 2-person tent, the Anaris is still fully capable of handling all weather conditions during the snow-free months of the year. On a backpacking and berry gathering trip in the lower slopes of the Cascade Mountains, Hilleberg Team member Jon Dykes encountered classic Cascade weather – constant wet, fog and rain. The Anaris can be pitched with trekking poles or by suspending the ridge corners from trees or other supports, and one or both doors on both vestibules can be rolled completely away. The Anaris can be pitched with trekking poles or by suspending the ridge corners from trees or other supports, and one or both doors on both vestibules can be rolled completely away. When fully buttoned up, the Anaris’s outer tent offers impressive weather protection. The Anaris outer and inner tents can be used separately. The outer weighs just 640 g (1 lb 7 oz), and makes a remarkably versatile tarp. Either one or both of the Anaris’s outer tent walls can be rolled away. Use the included guy line loops to peg the inner tent on one side and drape the wall over the top, or on both sides and roll both walls up and secure them above the ridge.

Anaris $595

The new Anaris is a very light and airy two-person ridge tent inspired by the first Hilleberg model, the Keb. Conceived for warm-weather backpackers and trekkers who prefer hiking with trekking poles, its two-vestibule construction is configured so the occupants sleep parallel to the vestibules. This provides impressive room for two people, with plenty of space for both and a dedicated entrance and vestibule for each. It also offers – along with the Anaris’s remarkably low weight – voluminous luxury for the solo traveler.

Backpackers who use trekking poles for hiking often look for a lightweight way to integrate their poles into their shelter. While many choose a minimal setup, such as our Tarp 5 and Mesh Tent 1, the Anaris offers an elegantly light solution for those who prefer the comfort of a true Hilleberg tent. As with all our models, the Anaris has linked outer and inner tents, allowing simultaneous pitching of both or separate use of either. The outer tent, made with our very light yet strong Kerlon 1000, provides both outstanding weather protection, and, thanks to the walls not going all the way to the ground and the curved patterning at their bottoms, full-time air flow. Roll both doors on both vestibules completely away, and the inner tent’s full mesh doors and entrance walls provide superlative venting for very warm conditions.

The Anaris offers more levels of versatility, as well. While built for a trekking pole pitch, it can also be set up by suspending the ridge ends, and either one or both of the outer tent walls can be fully rolled away for maximal breeziness in hot weather. And for those who want the option of a more minimal shelter solution on some trips, the outer tent alone makes a kind of “super tarp”: it offers the full functionality of rolling away walls and vestibule doors yet weighs just 640 g (1 lb 7 oz).

At first glance, the Anaris is simply a lightweight ridge tent that pitches with trekking poles and is a welcome addition to our Yellow Label, 3-season/snow-free tent series. But in reality, the Anaris follows a direct genetic line from our very first tent, integrates material and construction elements from a wide range of both past and current Hilleberg tents and shelters, and is in many ways a reflection of both the history and the soul of Hilleberg itself.

The Anaris takes its basic shape from the Keb, Hilleberg’s first tent, introduced in 1973. And while the Keb pioneered our linked inner and outer tent concept, it was also the platform for some of the innovations that have come to define all Hilleberg tents, including the ability to separate the inner and outer tents, and the adoption of the silicone-coated fabrics that Hilleberg began using exclusively in the late 70s. And while Bo and the company went on to develop tunnel and dome tents, ridge tents always had a place.

The Keb evolved into the first Anaris, in the line from the mid-80s to the mid 90s, and the namesake of the current model. The early mid-2000s saw the Muddus ridge tent that used our zip-together modular system (which we still use in our large Stalon XL group tent), and the Rajd, a ridge-style shelter built with a single wall of Kerlon 1200 and made to be pitched with trekking poles. “Both the Muddus and the Rajd were great ideas,” says Bo, “but they were not fully realized. The Muddus was very roomy, and its modular construction let you make an awning out of the side wall, creating a kind of airy ‘super tarp’ that was reminiscent of our older Muddus three-sided shelter. And the Rajd was indeed very light, but it its single wall construction had some disadvantages.”

That first Muddus Bo speaks of was a very simple, floorless wind shelter with a roof and three sides that was in our line in the mid-80s to early 90s. “It was our version of the Swedish ‘gapskjul,’” says Bo, “but with a full mesh front. It was perfect for summer and fall forest backpacking trips, and you felt incredibly close to nature in it.” This Muddus and our tarps, which have been in our line since the mid-80s, set the trajectory that led to our Mesh Ridge and Mesh Box shelters introduced in 2012 and to our Tarp 5 and Mesh Tent 1, which came out in 2016 and 2018 respectively. The simplicity, light weight and airy nature of these shelters all contributed significantly to the project that became the 2020 Anaris.

“We took everything we have learned about building great tents and shelters and put that into the new Anaris,” says Petra Hilleberg, Hilleberg’s President and CEO. “After the success of our Yellow Label models, we realized that a Yellow Label ridge tent would be the perfect thing to explore.” We started with easy-to-pitch and roomy design of the Keb/Anaris and combined it with both the simplicity of trekking pole set up from the Rajd, and the airiness of the Tarp 5/Mesh Tent 1 combination. We took elements from both the Muddus wind shelter and the Muddus ridge tent, combining the close-to-nature feel of the first Muddus and incorporating the ‘super tarp’ capability from the Muddus ridge tent. “You can roll up the vestibules and the sides of the Anaris’s outer,” says Petra, “so you can get as much or as little air flow as you want. And you can do this with both the full tent and when you use the outer tent on its own.”

Perhaps most importantly, however, is that the Anaris is a true Hilleberg tent. “We have a standard of quality, strength, and comfort that we will not compromise on,” says Bo, “whether that’s for a tunnel, dome or ridge tent. Hilleberg might be best known for our tunnel tents – especially the Keron – and our dome tents, but we have lots of experience with ridge tents, as well, and they have been a part of who we are and what we do.”

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.

  • Ridge construction has Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric and can be pitched with trekking poles or by suspending the ridge ends, making for a very light yet strong tent.
  • 3 season design: ventilation is built into the construction, and the inner tent mesh areas have no backing fabric panels.
  • The Anaris has plenty of room for two and is also a very light and spacious mansion for one.
  • Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
  • Dual entrances and vestibules ensure that one door can always be situated out of the wind and provide flexible entry/exit and storage options.
  • An optional footprint covers only the inner tent area and not the vestibule. It connects directly to the tent, and can be left attached during pitching.
  • The outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires using the guy lines that come attached to the connectors between the outer and inner tent walls.

Scandinavian Outdoor Group • Hardware Award

The Scandinavian Outdoor Group (SOG) gave the Anaris their Hardware Award at the annual OutDoor trade show in Munich, Germany. “The jury does not know any other tent in this weight category that offers as much space, such sturdy materials and the same level of weather protection.”

GearJunkie • Best in Show

At the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show in Denver, Colorado, USA, GearJunkie named the Anaris Best in Show. “We were impressed with its versatility: [It] is spacious, with large vestibules and the ability to transition from an airy “screen porch” mode to a buttoned-down bunker. [T]his is a minimalist’s tent built to last.”

Hilleberg Anaris Pitching Video

The Anaris Pitching Video dives deep into the versatility of the Hilleberg Anaris, a very light, two-person ridge tent in the Yellow Label series. Remarkably roomy and airy, the Anaris is a great choice for backpacking and other snow-free adventures and is easily light enough to be a mansion for the solo traveler who wants extra comfort. The Anaris pitches with trekking poles or by suspending the ridge ends and can be configured in myriad ways for multiple customized warm weather options: both sides of each vestibule can be rolled away, either outer tent wall can be flipped over the other, and both can be fully rolled up together. The inner tent can be used on its own as lightweight bug protection in warm, dry conditions, and the outer tent can be used as a highly adjustable “super tarp.” Learn more about the Anaris at https://hilleberg.com/Anaris 0:00 Intro 2:09 Pitching with trekking poles 4:56 Suspension 6:31 Using the Anaris 7:16 Tips for wet weather 8:34 Configurations 10:33 Outer tent 11:18 Inner tent 12:45 Footprint 13:34 Taking down the Anaris Learn more about Hilleberg tents, tarps, and shelters: Website - https://hilleberg.com Facebook - https://facebook.com/HillebergTheTentmaker Instagram - https://instagram.com/hilleberg_the_tentmaker Twitter - https://twitter.com/hilleberg

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.

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 lightest peg, the new, hardened aluminum Y-Peg UL has a “Y” cross-section similar to our Y-Peg, but in a smaller (and lighter) package. While not quite as robust as the larger Y-Peg, it offers a great balance of hard ground penetration and soft ground holding power. Its gold anodizing makes it highly visible, and the attached string loop makes it easier to pull it from the ground. • 15 cm/5.9" • 9.6 g/0.34 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

Trekking Pole

Y-Peg UL

Produced by DAC, our long-time partner and tent pole supplier, our poles are great for hiking and also work seamlessly with our Anaris, Tarps, Mesh Tent 1, Mesh Boxes and Mesh Ridge. Our poles are built with DAC’s impressively strong TH72M aluminum, and they extend from 90 cm (35.5 in) to 145 cm (57 in) and collapse fully to 65 cm (25.5 in). Adjustment comes from easy-to-use and very secure double-cam Lever Locks. At longer lengths, they are ideal for the Anaris and Tarp 10, or for the front of the Tarp 5 or Mesh Tent 1. When fully collapsed, they are perfect for the back of both the Tarp 5 and the Mesh Tent 1. Our trekking poles also come with removable rubber tips for use on rocky terrain.
