"well made."

Jerry, MooseJaw
18 January 2014
  • Summary: a piece of tyvek will be about half the weight, but this is custom made for the soulo. I leave it attached to the outer tent when everything's wet, and take the inner out to keep it dry in my pack.

"Bombproof"

Lawrence, MooseJaw
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Fabulous tent. Quick setup. Considered other solo Hilleberg tents but went for this for 4-season capability, superior in strong wind/snow. Little heavy but worth the peace of mind. I'm using for canoe camping and backpacking in northeast. Excellent design and execution...very well made with attention to detail. Go green and disappear.

"Bomb-proof 4-season capability"

MooseJaw
26 November 2012
  • Summary: All the tent you'd ever need unless you're struck by a hurricane or tornado. Space is a little tight but sufficient and efficient in cold weather (less space to warm with your body heat). Vestibule has adeaquate space for protecting your pack and boots from the weather.

"No need for avoiding to set-up in rain!"

Takumi, MooseJaw
2 October 2012
  • Summary: A big difference from others will be the Hilleburg's original (smart) standing-up system; both fly and inner will be raised at same time, so the inner never surface in rain and won't be soaked! Also it's little heavier than the other solo tents, but if a bad weather condition would be expected, Soulo will definitely be one of the best choice.

  • Summary: Summary A completely free standing solo tent that is both expedition-ready and ultralight. Pros Very easy and fast to pitch (no more than 3 minutes) Completely free standing Lots of space for a one-person tent Cons Price Less easy to pack Two years ago when we climbed Iōdake (硫黄岳) and Akadake (赤岳) (Japan) early spring with a friend, I had the occasion to spend a night in his brand new Hilleberg Allak .

"Never felt unsafe in this tent."

Helge, MooseJaw
31 October 2011
  • Summary: It is not the lightest tent around, but it can take a beating like few others. The three intersecting poles make for a sturdy construction. Setup is easy, even in foul weather, and since the inner goes up at the same time as the fly, it stays dry. Condensation is not a problem. It can occur in really wet conditions, but never in the inner. Adjusting the vents are a breeze. A groundsheet is optional, but helps prevent condensation if the ground is really wet.

Elizer Ben Shalom, Trailspace.com
6 June 2011
  • Summary: I often travel solo. There are many lightweight tents available but few that are truly four season tents. The Hilleberg Soulo is a tent for the person who wants a tent for all seasons. At under four pounds (3lbs. 13 oz. on my scale), it is light enough for summer backpacking and tough enough for four season use, even strong enough for high altitude expeditions. There are many design features I like with the Soulo. 1. It sets up easily 2.
