Hilleberg Soulo Tent




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.


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 by Ian, on 16/09/2019

    easy to put up and stood up to strong winds, lashing rain and surprisingly warm in sub-zero weather. Full precautions needed to minimise condensation in cool conditions, not good for tall people on a tight budget. Footprint was free though.
  • Hilleberg Soulo Tent review by TMac, on 19/06/2016

    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 :)
  • Hilleberg Soulo Tent review by Stephen, on 11/05/2015

    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.

    Soulos are great
  • Hilleberg Soulo Tent review by Garry Gale, on 24/02/2012

    Stunning tent... totally dependable and comfortable ..well worth the cost, one hint... always tidy the guy lines before packing up ... can get tangled very easily
  • Hilleberg Soulo Tent review by Tom L, on 28/06/2011

    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 Kirsten P, on 08/09/2010

    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.
