Summary: I am very happy I got the Footprint for my Akto tent. It connects easily to the bottom of the tent and protects the bottom. It keeps the floor more dry, warmer and protects the floor of the tent from getting damaged by stones and/or roots.
Summary: This tent is a great 1 person tent. It is very lightweight and easy to setup. It is the the quality you would expect from Hilleberg. It fits easily in your backpack and is very roomy if you are not too tall. It has been holding up also very well in windy conditions. I am very happy indeed with the tent.
Summary: Most footprints just lay there and do their job of protecting the floor of a tent and keeping the bottom dry. Well the Akto footprint does just that and a little more. Most notable is the fact that the footprint has little toggles at each corner that allow the footprint to be attached to the tent.

Summary: The first thing you notice is that it is not like all the other tents. Its design and function is out of the box. The pitching or assembly is very quick, with the inner tent attached to the fly you only pitch one tent. Unlike most tents you pitch the tent and then install the rain fly, there in lies what I see as the biggest and most important difference. I purchased the tent for backpacking and hunting, I live in the Pacific North West were it is normally wet.
Summary: When you are counting every lb (as I was) this tent is great! Super lightweight and easy set up. When you go for lightweight, you compromise on the durability. It doesn't do too well with the rough weather and tears quite easily. I still love mine and the weight was more important for me.
Summary: I used Hilleberg tents in Alaska for a 14 day mountaineering trip. Experienced nature in full fury - rain, snow, wind and sunshine. Hilleberg stood tall. I felt really safe in the tent. Strongly recommended.
Summary: Summary My go-to tent! Pros Fast easy pitch Light weight I'm not sure how long Hilleberg has been producing Akto tents but I've had mine going on seven years now and it's out in the woods being used by either myself or one of my friends at least 14-15 nights per year in all sorts of weather conditions. It truly is a four-season tent; if there is weather that it can't handle I do not want to be out in that weather.
I have to agree with these stellar reviews: this tent…

Summary: I have to agree with these stellar reviews: this tent is the deal, bombproof, fast pitch, wind defying, featherweight, and the green hides really well. Will not leak and rolls up and packs fast, unparalleled craftsmanship in both manufacture and material. I now welcome foul weather forecasts; weather is no longer a deciding factor. BUY THIS TENT.

Summary: The weight of this thing (or lack thereof) is amazing. I can literally fit this tent under a few straps on the OUTSIDE of my pack. At first look, one is certain this fabric will rip...but I assure you, Hilleberg knows what they're doing. It's build with big toughness. Condensation: Yes...it can happen. I slept in Moab at 17Deg F and 1st night woke up with my vapor frozen to the top.
