Expensive but worth it

I’ve had this tent for three years now so I’m ready to give it an honest review.
Apart from normal mountain and backpacking trips I have used it on high level multi day back packs (GR20 Corsica) multi day sea kayak trips (Scotland and British Columbia) and Winter use in the UK.
The best feature is that it’s so easy to pitch and quick to set up in any weather. It’s easy to use with the free standing design pole sleeve and clip system. I leave my adventure mates for dead with their tents when we’re pitching and I still love that smug feeling of being set up and waterproof so quickly.
It’s a really flexible design with so many internal vents, door and fly screen options means you can perfectly adapt it to varying wind and temperature conditions. This was particularly relevant camping in a dusty arid area of the GR20 when the wind whipped up a massive dust storm. Our friends with lighter weight tents with exposed or airy fly sheets spent the night (and most of the next morning) coughing up dust and brushing debris out of their kit. We slept right through the storm and simply shook the dust of the tent the next morning.
I have the footprint which provides a nice clean and dry porch area for gear storage and organisation in poor weather. As with most tents the two equal sized porches and doors make it easier to camp with someone else.
One unexpected bonus of the tent is that it’s such a conversation piece. Wherever we camp at home or abroad someone will always come up and say Nice Hilleberg and it’s a great conversation starter with other adventurers.

On the negative side.
1 - it’s a little heavy at 3.3kg but split between two people it’s worth the extra weight for the bombproof security it gives you.
2 - My Exped synmat squeak on the Hilleberg inner tent floor if I’m moving about a lot.
3 - if the tents soaking wet in the morning and you choose to pack it away with the inner and outer still joined together it will stay wet all day. I overcome this by breaking the tent out as soon as I find a dry or windy spot and pitching it to dry out for about 10 mins. This has always worked a charm but I imaging multiple very wet days could be a challenge if you never got the opportunity to dry the tent. A simple solution would be to separate the inner from the outer when breaking camp. Keep the wet and dry sections separate. A slighter longer pitch time but dry inner on multi day wet tents.
I really like this tent and would recommend it to anyone who wants great strength and reliability to pitch in challenging locations for extended periods.
Hilleberg Allak- expensive but you get everything you pay for and more.
