Part of Hilleberg's Red Label range. These tents are designed for both short and longer trips in generally less demanding conditions in all seasons, such as less exposed mountain terrain and forests in both winter and summer. Their emphasis on lighter weight makes them less than ideal for harsh environments and extended adventures in demanding conditions, however they are quite capable of withstanding heavy storm conditions.
The Akto offers near-luxury, all-season shelter for the solo traveller and it is only slightly heaver than a bivvy bag. It's an ideal choice any time you need the lightest weight, all season solo tent, and while it was not originally designed for extreme use, it has proven itself on extended polar expeditions, and so will stand up well to all conditions. Long distance backpackers will especially appreciate having a sturdy, comfortable room of their own at the end of a long day on the trail and hikers, climbers, bicycle tourers and sea kayakers alike embrace its lightweight roominess and a pack size that's small enough to fit into a side pocket.
The single pole construction offers excellent space to weight ratio and sturdy fibreglass rods in corners of the outer tent provide extra height and more usable space. These also make it the ideal tent for tall users who struggle to find a solo tent that has enough room. Basic pitching requires only four pegs in the head and foot end guy lines, and the simple, single-opening, continuous pole sleeve and tensioner system is quick to pitch and remarkably stable. It is recommended to peg out the four corners as it provides optimal floor space, venting and overall tent function.
The single entrance/ single vestibule configuration affords easy access as well as storage space. High bathtub floor keeps out ground water and looped guy lines affixed to twin attachments on each side of the pole increase stability in poor conditions. Zipper adjustable vents in head and foot ends of the outer tent provide good air flow, and are protected from rain by the angled design of the end itself. Partial no-see-um mesh on inner tent door is covered by an adjustable, fabric panel for all season comfort and a integrated stowage pocket helps to keep you organised.
The Kerlon 1200 flysheet is a 30D high tenacity ripstop nylon fabric; with a tear strength of 12kg, it provides remarkable strength at a very light weight.
For when you want to pitch this tents inner by itself in warmer climates. You can purchase an additional Pole Holder Set which include pole holders that are designed to attached to the corners of the inner, allowing you to pitching this tent without the flysheet.
