Year after year, this Hilleberg ultra-light solo tent is a favourite among backpackers of all kinds.

The Akto pitches easily in the worst of weather, provides good storage and excellent protection from the elements. Pitching as one, it has a single main pole with four stub end poles for better stability and more interior space. The fly or inner can be used on their own (needs extra pole cups). For a tent of this size the excellent ventilation keeps condensation under control. The waterproof Hilleberg Kerlon 1200 outer fabric has perhaps the best strength to weight ratio available today. Multiple reflectors for maximum visibility, strong and tough guylines, plus zipper flaps to provide extra weather protection and increase the zip's longevity.

Well worth the money
Reviewed By Aubrey, 03 Jun 2014

Ok , it may seem expensive for a 1 man tent but if you are serious about solo camping and backpacking regardless of the weather / season this tent is a must.
I have owned one of these for a couple of years now and it has never let me down regardless of conditions.
The main compartment is large enough to be able to move around and sit up inside also seems to be warm even in the winter. The porch is large enough to get a 80 litre rucksack and a pair of boots inside as well.
Ventilation is good with the two large flaps at either end of the tent helping to minimise condensation.
Weight seems to be good as well and when packed the tent folds neatly inside the main compartment of my rucksack.
So all in all I thoroughly recommend this tent.

 

 

 
An investment in camping
Reviewed By Jaedon, 03 Aug 2013

Let's start with the cost... its enough to make some people move straight on to the next item, but this tent is made to last and comes with Hilleberg's lifetime guarantee. The construction is such that you'll wear out cheaper tents and end up spending more in the long run.

It's a genuine 4 season tent, quick and easy to pitch. Definitely one person, but enough space in the porch for gear, without feeling claustrophic on the inside.

Don't be put off by the single hoop pole construction, it feels sturdy, albeit more exposed locations may highlight the advantage of geodesic design in other models.

Weight... unbeliveable and the product still provides 4 season camping.

The common theme amongst buyers is Hilleberg buyers is that they'll read tens of reviews all saying how good it is and eventually realise that this time tested model is still one of the greats... the deisgn hasn't changed in about 10 years and doesn't need to.

But in all honesty, you won't fully believe the reviews until you try it... go on!

 

 

 
The best
Reviewed By David, 06 Jun 2013

There may be slightly lighter backpacking tents around these days, but for sheer build quality this has to be the best on the market. Nothing comes close to it! It's the little things that make all the difference: top quality 3mm Dyneema guys, the zips and fasteners, fabric and not forgetting ease of set-up. Most important of all, it is bombproof...a true 4 season tent. Special thanks to Ben at the Preston store for the help and advice. Always good to deal with someone who spends his time on the fells and speaks from practical experience.

 

 

 
Rock solid and like the tardis
Reviewed By william, 18 Jan 2012

I am 6ft 2in my buddie is 6ft 6in we both own this tent. The first thing you notice when you first pick it up is the weight you don’t even notice as it is so light. Very easy to put up quickly on “auto pilot” and once up you have a safe haven from the elements. I have always been a bivi bag person I also like being out in all weathers this tent was a massive surprise to me. If you are a solo packer their really are few (if any) better choices. It lasts too! Nothing I hate more than a piece of kit that promises much but fails quickly. This tent lasts I have owned mine for over 5 years now and it shows little signs of age . I use mine for all sorts great for light weight packing (have to light weight now due to ageing knees lol). Also have a top box on the motorbike and this tent fits in easy with sleeping bag cooker and food for a few days. Been out in some big storms with it too and I slept like a baby. The room in them is worth mentioning too of course its a 1 man tent but wow more than enough room for yourself your kit without a strain yes I agree the price tag is high but as ferris bueller said “if you have the means I highly recommend it”.

 

 

 
Still the Best!
Reviewed By Alex, 01 Aug 2011

Like many products which have been on the market for a while it would be easy to dismiss the Akto as out of date, however in this case it would be a bad error. I use it in the North and West of Scotland on backpacking / hill bagging expeditions often camping in less than ideal pitches in ever changing weather. I'm also 6ft4ins tall which puts space at a premium especially in wet weather. Nevertheless, in my view the Akto is simply the best available compromise between weight,space,weather resistance and durability. I would reccommend it to anyone.
