My go-to tent!

  • 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.

  • 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: Ive been backpacking ever since I was a small child with my family. Most of the equiptment I own was passed down from my father, all heavy and old. After I started hiking alone I had problems carrying my heavy gear long distances. First I tryed a cheap Eureka solo tent, and it worked well until it rained on a night just above freezing temps and I got totally drenched. Pretty much sucked.

  • Summary: Having only been a serious hiker for two years, I have slowly become more involved in the pursuit and the gear. When I realized that fair weather hiking was no longer gonna satisfy my backwoods jones, I very methodically began evaluating all the four-season solo shelters I could find. After months of consideration, I finally decided to go with the Akto.

  • Summary: I bought this solo tent for winter use. It's the lightest 4 season tent I could find on the market. It has plenty of interior room for a person and some gear, plus a large vestibule which is large enough for a backpack, boots and cooking. It uses a single aluminum pole across the center, with a rod in each corner to help suspend it. Like all Hillebergs, it features their suspended inner tent, which allows you to put up the tent and fly as one unit.

  • Summary: I bought the Akto three years ago, and had it with me on trekking trips in the Pyrenees and in Lapland. I am not very tall and tend to travel with little gear, so the Akto turned out to be extremely spacious. The packed tent is short enough to be put on top of a slim backpack without being an obstruction (important when you walk through dense forest). Cooking under the apsis was no problem. The ventilation works well.

  • Summary: I posted this on the lightweight backpacker site and thought others might be interested. Since I posted this, I thought I would add that the tent is probably not suitable for dry, very warm, buggy conditions. That said: I bought an Akto from Sweden about two years ago. Have used it extensively in the Japan Alps, the French Alps, and in the alpine mountains of Taiwan, where I live. It's excellent and makes camp a real pleasure.

  • Summary: I have had my Hilleberg Akto for about 2 years now, and it never stops impressing me! I like going by myself and I do not like carrying a heavy tent. At first I was a little reluctant to get a one person tent, but after seeing the Akto, with its 3.1 lbs, big vestibule and good sized inner tent, I decided to try it. I am glad I did! I am 6'1 and 230 pounds and I have plenty of space with all my gear and plenty of room to cook.
