Summary: My strongest tent by far. This design by Sweedish folks is amazingly strong for its weight. The fact that the inner tent and rain fly erect at the same time is brilliant. Eliminates the possibility of the inner tent getting wet when it's dumping out. The venting system is very versatile, allowing for great moisture/condensation control. Lived in it for four days with buddy, plenty of room for all our gear.
Summary: Wonderful amount of space for 1 person with gear and tough as well, a Hilleberg - BUT - not for backpacking; too heavy. A great canoe tripping tent where I go (Canadian Shield) - no earth, just rock, trees, moss and water - which demands a self-standing tent. Absolutely nothing beets a Hilleberg! I know, I've had a few and still use their tarps when circumstances warrant. If I had to survive Armageddon out & beyond, it would be in this tent.
Summary: I was able to replace 3 quality tents used for different seasons and conditions with this single do it all tent. Works equally well in summer or winter, snow or rain. Check out the setup video on their website and you will see how this can save so much time and energy pitching in bad conditions. Quickly detachable inner body converts this into a mini-shelter for cooking in or weathering out long storms.

Summary: To put it in simple terms, this is the best tent I've ever seen for our needs. I have looked throughout the world at tent offerings, following even the faintest trails in search of an ideal shelter. The only tent I found that could hold a candle to the Staika was the Allak; another Hilleberg tent and essentially the lightweight version of the Staika with a couple of design deviations.

Summary: What makes an initial good impression is this tent's free-standing quality and it's ability to be lifted and placed exactly where it needs to be for sleeping purposes. The 2 door vestibules are also part of the free-standing dome structure and therefore do not need to be staked out. As with nearly all Hillebergs, this tent has a suspended inner tent which is supported by the 3 poles clipped onto the outside of the silicone/Kerlon fly.
