Questions on Nallo 4

    • hi, as a serious tent researcher i think i've decided upon hilleberg as my brand of choice at this point (having decided against the marmot thor and the north face ve 25). however, deciding b/t all hilleberg's options is a toughy. perhaps someone could help me with this. basically, i want a very sturdy, very roomy, yet relatively lightweight tent for potential use in such regions as the smoky mountains, white mountains, and the pacific northwest (including the north cascades).
      sturdy and super roomie (45 sq ft- ish) like a basecamp tent (such as the ve 25), but weighing no more than 8 lbs because i want to use my next tent for potential month-long treks in the backcountry.
      As for the Nallo 4, i like the 46 sq ft it offers and it's weight of a/b 6 pounds. Awesome combo!!!!
      however, being that it is the kerlon 1200 fabric instead of the 1800, i wonder if it would be as reliable over a period of several years as say, the Tarra which is made from the stronger material. I really do want a tent that has a/b 45 sq ft of space and is light- so, if the Nallo 4 would be strong enough for high mountain usage, then i might go that route. Otherwise, could you direct me to a Hilleberg made of the 1800 fabric with similiar specs?

    • Thanks for the question Vaden. I think you'll find Hilleberg's website is a great source of information. They cover a lot of the questions you ask in their Tent Information section. If you like the features of the Nallo 4, but prefer the Kerlon 1800 fabric, then I would take a look at the Nammatj. It is very similar to the Nallo in most repects, but it uses the beefier fabric and their stiff 10mm poles. Here's what Hilleberg has to say,

      "Certainly our ultralight Kerlon 1200 fabric, with its 12 kg value, is easily strong enough for snow-oriented use (it is far stronger than many so-called "expedition grade" tent fabrics). But if your trip means day after day after day in the snow, the Kerlon 1800 tents’ fabric and 10 mm pole combination, as well as their commensurately more robust zippers, guy lines and the like, provides welcome extra insurance."

Green Red Sand Nallo 4
Few tents have made the impact on the tent world that Hilleberg's Nallo series has. The Nallo 4 is the ideal all-around, all-season, ultra light tent for hiking, biking, climbing or paddling trips. Even adventure racers have adopted this light yet sturdy tent as their shelter for the most demanding competitions. The Nallo epitomizes the concept of light but strong, thanks to its clever design and innovative fabrics. The tent’s tunnel construction provides straighter side walls, maximizing usable space. At the same time, its higher front pole and lower rear one optimize overall space by putting the volume up front where you need it, and simultaneously reducing weight. And while the Nallo’s ground sheet and Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabrics are lighter than those found in our standard tents, both are still exceptionally strong – stronger, in fact than most other standard or heavy duty fabrics on the market. Still, the Nallo’s salient characteristic is its (light) weight.

But the Nallo is no mere basic tent. Its innovative outer tent entrance has a single, continuous zipper, which allows you to create a side entrance on either side or a front entrance. The inner tent entrance is backed with no-see-um mesh, and a snow-proof vent is integrated into the outer entrance panel. Hilleberg improved venting options with an easy to use and extremely functional vent on the rear of the outer tent. Now you can roll up the outer at the foot end, which, along with a fabric-backed mesh vent on the back wall, affords more air flow and better condensation control.
