Strong, ultralight, and versatile 2 person tent

Ideal for two people who want to go as light as possible, the Niak is also a veritable lightweight palace for one person. Its dimensions accommodate two people, but its single door and lengthwise vestibule make it somewhat less accessible than Hilleberg's other two person models, so the Hilleberg Niak is especially good for a parent and a child, or for one person and a dog. It is also the perfect three-season solo tent when you want to be as comfortable as possible at a low weight. The Niak’s outer tent is made from Hilleberg's lightest weight Kerlon 1000 fabric, and it is supported by the same DAC NSL 9 mm poles used in our Red and other Yellow Label models. Its simple, two pole design is quick to pitch and very stable, and the single vestibule can be completely rolled away to maximize air flow through the full mesh inner tent door. In addition, catenary curves along the bottom edges of the outer tent create space that both allows for constant air flow and also ensures that the outer tent is stretched properly for optimal performance.

Prior to its introduction, the Hilleberg Niak 2 person tent went through well over 250 backcountry nights of use in all types of weather, all over the world. Two person users appreciated its light weight, and solo users loved that it offered such roomy luxury at such a surprisingly low weight. All proclaimed it as an outstanding choice for any summer or warm weather trip.

A note on colors: Fabric dyes have natural variations, so the actual tent color may look slightly different from what is pictured here.
