Hilleberg Akto Tent Description

  • Brand : Hilleberg
  • Season : SS16
  • Code : 5005130
  • Weight : 0KG
  • The Hilleberg Akto is a low profile, lightweight 4 season solo backpacking tent with a enviable reputation for toughness and stability in the wildest weather.  Bombproof construction combined with ultra low weight and pack size are what make this a serious backpackers tent, and one of our perennial best sellers.

    While only slightly heavier than a bivi bag, the Hilleberg Akto tent offers a lot more space and comfort, and it's single vestibule easily accommodates all your gear. It still packs down so that it easily fits into a pack's side pocket and its low profile, single-pole tunnel design sheds wind, snow and rain with no problem at all.

    The Hilleberg Akto is a true 4 season tent, yet its total weight is only 1.60 kg . The Tunnel design and linked inner and outer tents makes it very simple and quick to set up, and provides a high degree of stability in all conditions. Pitching requires only four pegs – one for each of the corner guy lines – yet an additional six points provide more options for increasing stability.

    • Hilleberg Akto Tent Review

      By Nom Cabrelli on 3
      Guys, agree great little tent, easy pitch, roomy, comfortable with a great porch BUT CONDENSATION is terrible. Every time time I’ve used this tent I’ve packed a saturated tent in the morning that’s in Scotland in the summertime! Can’t compare it to other solo tents because this is the only one I’ve used. Do all solo tents suffer from this problem, I.E. Terra Nova Laser.

      By Jim Roberts on 2
      overrated and not true 4 season tent. Great for below the treeline but there are several issues with it. Poor condensation issues, low height so that you have to stoop, quite heavy for a 1 man tent and very expensive
      NO Jim Roberts would not recommend this item

      By Dave Thomas on 4
      I have used this tent for several years now.An excellent tent which has never failed me despite some severe weather. The only time I suffered from condensation was when I forgot to open the lower vents after pitching.Perhaps a bit dated now. There are lighter tents available, but are they as tough? Also it must be admitted, its v. expensive.

      Great tent, so many practical features and the usual Hilleberg build quality. A breeze to put up and bombproof in bad weather.

      By John Raymond on 5
      The very best tent for one. It may be a little heavier than the recent offerings by other well known manufaturers, but this will last far longer and still sell secondhand for a very good price-that is if you are able to part with it!

      I carefully selected the Hilleberg Akto for solo hiking all year round in the wet scandinavian climate. I have used the tent this summer: its fast to set up, it endures heavy rains and its inner tent remains bone dry when pitched in heavy rain. good materials and craftsmanship too.

      By anthony on 5
      Purchased this super tent whilst in Norway, Im in the lake district writing this review. I need to tell you how capable this tent is when it comes to holding its own in serious bad weather. Im just in a nice warm caravan in Hawkshead after being wild camping at the natorius helvellyn , stride and edge. Then onto Place fell in Glenridding. Both nights were blowing in excess of 80-90mph winds along with snow and rain. I felt a little uncomfortable at first after committing to Helvellyn. But how wrong was I, this mighty little tent done exactly what is written on the tin. Kept its shape and not even let in a snowflake. When used with the footprint it doubles the inner tents ground sheet strength aswell as adding extra protection. Dont even think about not buying a fantastic tent thats super light and well put together from a reputable manufacturer in the name of Hilleberg.
