The Hilleberg Akto tent is ideal for solo backpacking, especially for long trips of any kind, in any season, where light weight is a high priority. And while not designed for extreme or above-tree line use, the Akto has proven itself on extended polar expeditions, and so will stand up well in various conditions. Its single-pole Tunnel Tent construction, very light yet very strong Kerlon 1200 material, and 9 mm pole make it best suited for mobile trips where you pitch and take down your tent daily.

This particular version has been produced in the new 'Sand' colour, offering a more natural and neutral coloured shelter which will blend in better with its surroundings.

Pitching the Akto is an easy task thanks to its single pole design and adjustable pole holder. It requires only 4 pegs – one for each of the corner guy lines – yet an additional 6 points provide more options for increasing stability. Included with the Akto are 10 'V-Pegs'.

The Akto's design offers full sitting height in the middle of the tent, while sturdy fibreglass rods in the corners of the outer tent provide extra height, eliminating the claustrophobia that many solo tents engender. Tall users find it one of the few solo tents available that has enough room. The Akto's roomy configuration will easily accommodate both you and your gear.

An important feature of the Akto is its use of both an inner and outer tent. The Tunnel design and linked inner and outer tents makes it very simple and quick to set up, and provides a high degree of stability in all conditions. To keep condensation to a minimum, a zipped vent is fitted at each end of the tent as well as a covered, adjustable vent in the vestibule. The Akto's ventilation works regardless of weather conditions, since the inner tent’s fabric is highly breathable.

Another major benefit of the Akto is the material used to make it; Kerlon 1200 is renowned to be one of the lightest tent materials available. Its remarkable tear strength makes it stronger than many so-called 'heavy-duty' or 'expedition-grade' fabrics. Kerlon 1200 is easily the strongest, ultra-lightweight tent fabric out there. Although only slightly heavier than a bivy bag, the Akto offers near-luxury all-season shelter for the solo traveller.

A complete tent consists of inner and outer tent with guy lines and runners, poles, pegs, stuff bags, spare pole section, repair sleeve and instructions.

  Great quality tent as one would expect from Hilleberg. There are lighter ones on the market but you lose strength and durability. Sand (light brown to most of us) is a great colour for blending into the British moors and mountains. Some people say it's big enough for two but its not, it's definitely a one man tent but with plenty of room for gear in the porch area and the inner.

  Great tent. Is perfect size for 1 man, could fit 2 if needed. I love the colour. Took it to New Forest and it blends right in. Yes, it cost a lot but so does replacing broken tents every few years. The folks at Woodlore answered my e-mails straight away and were very helpful.

  Worthy of hype. Ingenious design - such simplicity and ease of use; great use of space - my wife is small and can fit inside with me, although if attempting this yourself make sure you know whoever it is joining you very well indeed. The footprint is a no brainer - makes it easier to roll-up and doesnt add much weight at all - and it really is light! Sand colour a nice touch.

  This is a very good tent. A lot of this is down to the attention to detail in its design. The ventilation system, which can be zipped closed while still remaining breathable, allows for extra warmth in cold weather. The single pole can be pushed in from one side without having to go round to the other side of the tent to anchor it. The wedge shape of the tent tends to push it down in a wind; I camped on a Welsh mountain pass on a breezy night and I had no worries about the tent blowing down. The Kerlon fabric does feel different to the usual tent fabrics, being thinner and less stretchy, but also very strong. The tent is easy to pitch and the guying system works very well; mine was anchored to a rock on the windward side. It is also nice to get good quality tent pegs for a change, but a couple of spares would have been nice. For use in very high winds some extra optional pegging and guying points would be useful, although they wouldn't be necessary in the majority of conditions. I also think that a tent bag made of a breathable fabric would allow the tent to dry a bit during a days walk. Some fixing points on the tent bag would be nice too, as I often tie my tent to the outside of my rucksack.

  I wanted a small tent to use whilst travelling on my motorcycle. I've owned another Hilleberg tent for a few years and knew the quality would be superb. The first time I used the Akto was in Snowdonia over the first weekend of March 14th. The tent is really quick to erect with 10 pegs and one pole. There was plenty of room for me and my biking suit, helmet and clothes inside of the tent and plenty of storage for my boots and cooking kit in the vestibule. We had some pretty bad winds and lots of rain on the Saturday night but the tent stayed dry and secure, luckily I had pitched the door away from the wind and had a comfortable night. I'm really happy with this tent from my first impression, a great purchase and Woodlore offered the best deal on the web, delivered in good time and in good order.
