A spacious, ultralight, solo tent with true all season function.

Tent Profile

The Akto is ideal any time you need the lightest weight, all condition solo tent. It is especially good for long trips of any kind, in any season, where light weight is a very high priority. And while it was not designed for extreme above tree line use, the Akto has proven itself on extended polar expeditions, and so will stand up well to all conditions. This is, in part, because of the Akto’s roomy configuration – it will easily accommodate you and your gear – and because of its remarkably strong Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric. Its single pole Tunnel Tent construction, very light (yet very strong) Kerlon 1200 and 9 mm pole make it best suited for mobile trips, where you pitch and take down your tent every day.

Akto Users

When we first introduced the Akto over a decade ago, we did not know that it would become as popular as it has. Hikers, climbers, bicycle tourers and sea kayakers alike have embraced its lightweight roominess, and today it is being used in every clime, all over the world. Long distance backpackers especially appreciate having a sturdy, comfortable room of their own at the end of a long day on the trail. Trekkers find it excellent lightweight accommodation insurance for when traditional lodging in far flung places is overcrowded, overpriced, or unavailable. And tall users find it one of the few solo tents available that has enough room.

Performance Attributes

Although only slightly heavier than a bivy bag, the Akto offers near-luxury all-season shelter for the solo traveler – lodging that includes a vestibule and a packed size small enough to fit into a side pocket on many packs.

<* The Akto has true all-season capability, yet its total weight is only 1.5 kg/3 lbs 5 oz. Our 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.

* The single pole offers full sitting height in the middle of the tent, while sturdy fiberglass rods in the corners of the outer tent provide extra height, eliminating the claustrophobia that many solo tents engender.

* Pitching requires only four pegs – one for each of the corner guy lines – yet an additional six points provide more options for increasing stability. This includes using the corner points at the head and foot ends of the tent and the double guy lines with double line runners on both sides of the pole sleeve. If needed, another guy line can be added to the front vent hood.

* The Akto’s ventilation works regardless of weather conditions, since both the inner tent’s fabric is highly breathable, and the main front vent – integrated into the door – is protected by a generous hood. Both ends of the tent have zipper closure vents as well, and these are protected by the overhang formed by the guy line attachment points. Additionally, these ends are made from a venting fabric, which is highly air permeable but still able to keep rain and snow out. Lastly, the top half of the inner tent door no-see-um mesh panel covered with an equal sized, zipper-adjustable fabric panel.

Hilleberg Akto

rated 5 of 5 stars
Hilleberg knocked it out of the park on the Akto. I've owned the Akto for 3 years now and it looks like it has never come out of the bag. 12 days in the Brooks Range of Alaska, 31 days in the NWT of Canada along with countless trips in Montana. For a one man, bomb proof 4 season tents, I am absolutely sold on the Akto. For summer use, I would highly recommend purchasing the bug netting inner separately. Ventilation is fairly minimal and it heats up quick but the Akto wasn't really designed to be used as a summer backpacking tent. I look forward to getting many more years of use out of this shelter.
