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 .

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.

Summary: I have owned this tent and used it for the last two years. I needed a solo tent and this one filled all the requirements and has proven to be a real friend in the boonies.

It is easy to erect and provides a great deal of headroom, as well as lay down space, and the vestibule is large enough for a Bora 95 pack and snowshoes.

Summary: After buying several tents for my solo trips over the last few years I ended up with a completely useless Eureka Skylite SUL. After spending the wettest three nights of my hiking career in it I went back to the shop and was allowed to return it. After deciding to spend a bit more than I had on the Eureka I ended up with the Hilleberg Soulo.
