Hilleberg - Enan (2015)
Following the construction of the Akto, the Enan is built with a single pole design and single-ended full pole sleeve system. The Enan uses lighter fabrics than the Akto: 10 denier Kerlon 600 outer tent fabric specifically designed for the Enan. Additionally, Hilleberg engineers found that the strength of 9mm DAC NSL poles, also used by the Akto, outweighs the negligible weight loss of 8mm poles with similar manufacturing.

- At last - a quality lightweight tent built to last.
Just spent a very mixed weather week in North Wales cycle touring. We had wind, sun, calm, drizzle,. mist,hot sun, dark day, a typical Welsh July.
It pitches very easily and can be put up in 5 minutes. The quality compared with other tents I have used is in another league.
There is plenty or room for one and gear.
Two day's rain on wet ground meant there was some condensation, but me and my gear stayed dry. I can finally use a down bag with confidence. You people with dry conditions in the summer are lucky.
I can honestly say the Enan is the best one man tent I have ever used, although the wife nearly had a heart attack when she found out how much I paid. Mustn't leave bills around again!
I have used this tent for 14 days in Patagonia, including the "O" track. No issues at all with the tent. 100% perfect. I'm taking this in few months on Huayhuash Circuit. Also, I like the fact that tent has a "life time" warranty.
But, the price is little high.
- a world-class, lightweight one-man tent
- The Enan is built on the Akto model, but it might be a better tent for lightweight-requiring hikers. I have used it only four nights, but one set was in pouring rain (monsoon in Southern California desert) and the other in VERY strong winds, I can't find anything but praise for the tent's ultra-fine sewing and general construction. It is very light.
Questions & Answers
Thank you for your question.
The primary differences are going to be the weight of the fabric used on the outer fly, and the type of fabric used on the inner tent. The Akto fly uses Kerlon 1200 fabric, while the Enan fly uses Kerlon 600 fabric. As you can imagine, the Kerlon 600 will be half the weight, but also half the tear-strength and puncture resistance of the Kerlon 1200 fabric featured on the Akto. In regards to the inner tent, the Akto features fully enclosed nylon walls, with an optional mesh door located beneath the nylon, that allows for better ventilation and visibilty in good weather, while still providing protection from bugs. The Enan features just the mesh door, with no nylon cover to provide extra protection during inclement weather.
The stronger outer fabric, combined with the fully enclosed inner tent, allow the Akto to perform well in harsh winter conditions, while the lightweight fabric and airy inner tent of the Enan make it more suited for 3 season pursuits.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
