Completely free standing in design and sturdy enough to withstand strong winds and heavy snow loads, the Hilleberg Allak 2 Person 4 Season Tent is a favorite refuge for long distance backpackers, mountaineers approaching daunting peaks, and taller users seeking a roomy interior. Based off Hilleberg's mighty Staika Tent, the Allak borrows its free standing dome design, but sheds approximately 1. 5 pounds for maximum efficiency on longer trips and grueling expeditions. As such, it sacrifices a bit of all out strength over the Staika, yet it still holds up well under demanding conditions, such as high winds and heavy snow. The Allak features two vestibules for gear storage, with both entrances facilitating quick entry during stormy weather. Fully free standing, the dome structure features multiple pole crossings for exceptional strength through high winds and heavy snow. Linked, but separable inner and outer tents allow for simultaneous pitching, with the option to pitch both separately with Hilleberg's available pole holders sold separately. Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric is puncture and abrasion resistant, holding up to severe weather and rigorous use. The tent floor features a triple PU coated fabric for superior weather resistance. For enhanced protection from ground moisture, Hilleberg offers a separate tent footprint. Included with the tent are four 9mm DAC Featherlite NSL poles for an optimal balance of strength to weight, as well as 12 V Peg stakes for added security in all conditions.
