Hilleberg modeled the new Enan after the award-winning, best-selling Akto, with the goal of making a three season version that was as light as possible while still having the strength required of a Hilleberg tent. The Enan could have been made lighter, but that would also yield less than “True Hilleberg” durability and function. The Enan uses the Akto’s proven single pole design and its single-ended full pole sleeve system, then reduces weight by using lighter fabrics in both the inner and outer tents. The 10 denier, Kerlon 600 outer tent fabric was developed by Hilleberg specifically for the Enan. Because the weight savings of a smaller diameter pole is quite negligible, while the loss in strength is significant, Hilleberg elected to use the same 9mm DAC NSL pole that the Akto uses. As with all of Hilleberg’s Yellow Label tents, the Enan’s venting system is built into its construction: a full mesh inner tent door, in combination with outer tent head and foot ends of tough mesh, both allows and encourages constant air flow. For very windy and rainy conditions, Kerlon 600 fabric panels can be rolled down and secured to cover the outer tent’s mesh ends. When not in use, these panels roll up and stuff into integrated pockets. During development the Enan was used for everything from adventure travel in Southeast Asia, to backpacking trips in Europe and the US. All involved praised how easy it was to pitch, its roominess and its comfort, and all were quite impressed with its strength – and , of course, with its very pleasing light weight!
