We love this tent for solo backpacking!
Wherever you go, you will find avid fans with many fond memories of travels with their Akto.
It's difficult to beat the combination of space and durability for such a low weight and packed size.
There's plenty of room for one (and a dog!), with useful storage space inside the inner and in the porch.
A really useful feature of Hilleberg tents is that you pitch flysheet first ... so no more wet inner tents! You can also keep the flyheet & inner tent linked and pitch both of them quickly in one go.
If you're packing-up in the pouring rain then simply unclip the inner, stash it safely in your rucksack and get into your waterproofs ... ready to quickly take down the fly, pegs & pole.
When you arrive at your next night's camp ... do the same thing in reverse and, even if it's (still) raining, you'll have a completely dry inner as you settle in to your tent for the evening!
Having just one pole helps make it very light to carry and there's an effective system for ventilation with zipped vents at each end.
The central pole means that there is maximum headroom in the middle of this tent, giving you plenty of space for sitting up, organising you gear, preparing food and getting dressed in comfort.
It may not be quite as capable in very strong winds or heavy snow as a tent with more poles and crossover points (such as the Hilleberg Soulo) but the Akto is a truly outstanding performer.
The strength and quality of the materials used by Hilleberg mean that you'll get years and years of faithful service from your Akto.
