Hilleberg Soulo Tent Description

  • Brand : Hilleberg
  • Season : SS17
  • Code : 5005206
  • Weight : 0KG
  • 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.

    Sizing Information

    Technical Information


    • Free standing design that make it easy to pitch in difficult terrain
    • Short pole sleeve and clip system construction and linked inner and outer tents make for simple and quick set up.
    • Very compact footprint while maintaining interior roominess. 
    • Ultralight materials – Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9 mm poles – combined with the three poles crossing each other in three places – make for a very lightweight yet very stable tent with excellent snow-load handling capability. 
    • Pitching requires no pegs, but 12 peg points provide options for increasing stability: six loops, one at each pole end, and six double guy lines with double line runners, one along each pole line.
    • Both the floor space and head room are quite spacious thanks to the three pole structure and Dome design.
    • The single entrance/single vestibule configuration affords convenience, flexibility and comfort. And the vestibule is parallel to the sleeping area, so access to gear stored there is wonderfully convenient – you can even get at it while lying in your sleeping bag!
    • The Soulo’s ventilation system functions regardless of weather conditions, since both the inner tent’s fabric is highly breathable, and since there is a zipper adjustable vent above the door of the outer tent.

    • Hilleberg Soulo Tent Review

      Totally dependable in all weathers even on Scottish mountain in high winds. Spacious, comfortable and well made. Worth carrying the extra weight for these benefits.

    • Hilleberg Soulo Tent Review

      By Tom L on 5
      Great tent, very strong in high winds and certainly one of the best bets when the weather throws the worst at you. As usual, the only downside is the price but you get what you pay for.

    • Hilleberg Soulo Tent Review

      By Stephen W on 5
      Had a couple of trips now and very pleased with it, not the lightest one man but very durable and spacious with enough space for gear and cooking in the dry. Only warning is do peg it whilst erecting it as catches wind easily whilst walking around it fixing clips to the poles.

    • Hilleberg Soulo Tent Review

      By Neil C on 5
      I needed a tent for cycle touring and after doing a bit of research Id narrowed it down to two brands: Terra Nova & Hilleberg, but after doing a bit more digging, the overall feeling I got was that Terra Nova usually came out on top if your main priority was low weight but if you wanted a tent that was lightweight but still shrug off a storm and would still outlive you then Hilleberg was the brand to go for. I bought a Soulo based on its ability to be free standing and now that its had a bit of use Im really happy with my decision. It can be pitched in about 5 minutes (or less!) after a bit of practice and due to the free standing design can be pitched anywhere regardless of whether you can get pegs in to the ground or not and the weather has never been a problem once tucked up safely inside. As the bike takes the weight and not me, I wasnt too fussed about a few extra grams compared to the lightest tent on the market so if youre after a bombproof tent for cycle touring that will last pretty much forever then you cant go far wrong with a Soulo!

    • Hilleberg Soulo Tent Review

      By Stephen on 5
      I wrote a review for this tent just after I brought it in 2011. Well Ive been using it for over 4 years in all sorts of weather and in everything from campsites to backpacking wild camping. It doesnt come cheap but it is still as good as new and has never let me down. As such I feel it has given me value for money despite the price.

      Hilleberg Soulo - bombproof quality as expected, but Id rather review The Climbers Shop staff & service, which over the years, has been second to none. Informative when there are slight delays, friendly, knowledgeable & will bend over backwards for customers. Six stars are needed :)
