Questions on Nallo 2

- I wondered why the mesh inner tent is listed as a separate item on the order form. Does this mean that the tent doesn't come standard with the inner section?
- Thank you for the question. The Nallo 2 definitely does come with an inner tent, but the "Mesh Inner Tent" is an optional accessory. In our photo, you can see the yellow inner tent (standard)...it's made from a solid but very breathable materiel. The "Mesh Inner Tent" is made exclusively with no-see-um mesh netting for maximum airflow. I've included a link to Hilleberg's Nallo 2 page. There's a photo of the mesh inner on their site. Thanks!

Hilleberg - Nallo 2
Quick OverviewLightweight 3-season all-around performance
The Hilleberg Nallo 2 is the tent of choice when the lowest weight with the highest quality matters. The Nallo is suitable for backpacking year-round and an excellent choice for thru-hikers (AT/PCT) for whom low weight and small packed size is imperative. Ideal for almost all possible trips in all seasons of the year, the Nallo 2 is a true all-arounder for the weight conscious!
For ventilation, you can roll up the outer at the foot end, which, along with a fabric-backed no-see-um mesh vent on the back wall, affords more air flow and better condensation control. There is also now a fabric backed no-see-um mesh panel at the back of the inner tent.
Two poles, adjustable pole holders and peg loops make it easy to set up and take down. The Nallo requires a minimum of four pegs for pitching. The inner tent is linked to the outer for easier handling (simultaneous set-up) and comfort (the inner is always protected from the rain)! One can easily detach part of the inner tent to enlarge the vestibule. The outer tent on its own provides a great shelter on lunch breaks and the inner can very easily be used separately as well in warmer conditions. All you need for this are four separate pole holders (not included). The Nallo inner tent entrance is almost circular. The zipper has four runners and opens from the top and from the bottom. If the weather demands it, the side panels of the vestibule can be used as entrances too. The vestibule takes two or three backpacks or one or two backpacks while still providing room for the preparation of food. In order to keep condensation levels as low as possible, the Nallo's vestibule features a well covered vent. It is part of the center panel and can be operated from the inside and the outside. The inner tent entrance is fully backed by no-see-um mesh. With the entrance and the inner fully open you will enjoy lying in your sleeping bag, soaking in the views!

I bought the Nallo2 several years ago for a trip to Torres del Pine national park in southern Chile. The tent is a four season and weighs 6 pounds, but split between two hikers, not a huge burden. We were warned of high winds in southern Pategonia and it did not disappoint. The first evening, we pitched the tent and the wind picked up. There were about 20 tents in the area we camped. Some of the lighter tent blew flat. A german couple broke two poles... ran out of repair bits.
The Nallo2 had NO PROBLEM handling the wind. We were snug and secure.
I've had the tent in heavy downpours on the West Coast Trail. Again, snug and secure.
It's not 'free-standing' but everything is a trade-off. When I'm going on a hike and I know the weather is going to be nice, I don't bring the Nallo2. If the weather is going to be more of a challenge, I bring the Nallo2. It's an awesome tent.
I've brought it into Northern British Columbia on a moose hunt in last October. Temps down to -4 celcius. Thats when the 'four season' kicks in. The tent keep you warmer than 3-seasons. No condensation problems when you keep the vents open alittle.
The vestibule is adequate for piling in your packs and boots etc.
You pay alot for the tent, but you get alot of tent. I've beaten my on 6-7 trips (kayak camping, canoe camping, hiking, hunting) and it's like new. Worth the $$
