Hilleberg Soulo Tent Description
Brand : Hilleberg
Season : AW16
Code : 5005206
The Hilleberg Soulo is an ultra light and ultra strong single person backpacking and mountaineering tent. Its free standing design makes it highly versatile and able to cope with high winds and snow loads.
The Soulo benefits from a spacious vestibule for kit storage and cooking, and its strength means it's well suited for exposed altitude conditions as well as more relaxed valley camping. With a 3 pole/3 crossing structure - like its bigger brother, the Hilleberg Jannu - it has a very strong yet very light structure. The Kerlon 1200 flysheet fabric combined with 9mm DAC alloy poles make for a remarkably light tent, particularly when considering its overall strength and weather resistance.
Like the Hilleberg's Allak, it's free standing design make it excellent for challenging pitching conditions like knife-edge ridges, rocky ground, and wooden-floored sites found in some parks. It is certainly light enough for mobile journeys, where you move your camp every day, while its Dome structure imparts superb snow load handling ability, making it a fine choice for base camp use.
