The Nallo 2’s salient characteristic may be its light weight, but it is still fully able to handle all season, all weather adventures. This explains why this tent is the first choice of those needing the lightest weight tent that still offers all-season, all weather functionality. This includes wilderness photographers, professional climbers, hunters, and other adventurers who have to carry large amounts of gear, as well as long distance hikers, who want to get more out of carrying less. Given its remarkably low weight, even solo hikers who want truly palatial quarters can justify taking the Nallo 2.

All product features and measurement values, including tent weight and pole length, may vary somewhat from what is shown in our catalog, other printed items and on our website. Such differences can occur because of alterations in the design and production process and/or natural variations in the materials.

In the mid-1980s, Bo Hilleberg set out to design a two pole, double wall, one person tent that was spacious and had a maximum weight of 1.5 kg (3 lbs 5 oz) or less. He could not, however, get the weight below 1.7 kg (3 lbs 12 oz) with a design he liked. But he realized, he could create a very lightweight, all-season two person tent, with the same amount of space as the very popular Nammatj, which had been introduced a few years earlier.

“There was a demand at that time for a lighter, two person tent,” recalls Bo, “especially by those users who did not need the strength of the Nammatj.” And so the Nallo was born (as was the germ of the idea that would become the Akto some years later. See “The story of the Akto”). Introduced in 1987, it used the same diameter poles and the same Kerlon 1500 outer tent fabric (with its remarkable 15 kg/33 lb tear strength) as did the Nammatj at that time. It was also roughly the same shape, but with a center entrance and integrated vent hood in the single vestibule for weight savings. “The Nallo was one of our biggest successes. recalls Bo. “It won quite a few prizes in its first year.” No wonder: it was a true all-season tent, very strong, yet still less than 2 kg (4 lb 7 oz) in weight.

The Nallo soon became the “Nallo 2,” as it was joined in the line by the Nallo 3 and 4. All were enthusiastically received, and in 1995, when the European Outdoor Award was given for the very first time, the Nallo was named best overall outdoor product.

Despite all this success, Bo knew he could improve the Nallo models. In 2002, Hilleberg introduced the second generation Nallo tents with a shorter back pole and a longer front one. This new design both saved weight, and created more sitting height up front. Most important, however, was the new lighter weight Kerlon 1000 fabric, with a 10 kg/22 lb tear strength, which was developed specifically for the Nallo tents.

The same year, Hilleberg also introduced the extended vestibule Nallo GT models. “Suddenly, at that time,” recalls Bo, “it was very popular to have these extended vestibules, so it was an easy decision to add them to the Nallo series.” The “new” Nallo models were a great success, and the GT versions were so popular that that demand outstripped production.

The redesigned Nallo models were the first time we made tents lighter through materials, and the Nallo was the first tent – indeed, the keystone tent – in what would become our Red Label line. But improvements did not stop. In 2003, we introduced improved Kerlon fabrics: Kerlon 1800 (18 kg/40 lb tear strength) replaced Kerlon 1500, and Kerlon 1200,(12 kg/26 lb tear strength) replaced Kerlon 1000. We added an additional, interior vent In 2005, and in 2006, we reconfigured the Nallo GT’s extended vestibule with a more adjustable vent and two entrances. We also added a short zipper to the back wall of the outer tent on all models, which provided even more venting options.

Today, the Nallo and Nallo GT models remain some of our most popular, and with good reason: they are strong and roomy yet quite light, and they offer true all-season function. In addition, their legacy is clear in our tent offerings: they spawned the two entrance Kaitum and Kaitum GT, introduced in 2006 and 2009, respectively. Just as the Nallo models are the Red Label complements to the Black Label Nammatj ones, the Kaitum and Kaitum GT correspond to the Keron and Keron GT. The Nallo and Nallo GT tents also became the inspiration for the very light Anjan and Anjan GT models, “founding members” of our three-season Yellow Label line.

Our Red Label models are true all-season tents, yet are still easily light enough for any backpacking trip. They are well-suited for nearly all users, and, unsurprisingly, they have become our most popular tents.

Before we organized our tents into the Label system – introduced in 2012 to make it easier for people to choose the right Hilleberg tent – our now-named “Red Label” models were simply called “Kerlon 1200 tents.” According to Bo Hilleberg, “The Kerlon 1200 tents were made at first for experienced backpackers who were out year ’round.” These tents were distinguished then – as Red Label tents are today – by their lighter weight, Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9 mm poles, in contrast to our Black Label models, which use stronger Kerlon 1800 in their outer tents and sturdier 10 mm poles.

Quite quickly, however, we discovered that these light yet remarkably strong Red Label tents were ideal for quite a large group of users. “Those just beginning to go into the backcountry get a tent that is reliable and offers great security for bad weather in the summer,” says Bo. “Experienced users often find them a lighter option for some of their trips. And they are quite good for families who are out in more challenging conditions.”

The first “Red Label” tent was the Nallo, introduced in 1987 as a response to those who wanted a 2-person tent similar to our Black Label Nammatj, only lighter. This led us on a quest both for new designs and a new fabric that would save even more weight without compromising our rigorous strength standards. That first Nallo spawned a collection – the Nallo 2, 3, and 4 and corresponding extended vestibule GT models – which then led to the newer design we use today. All of the subsequent Red Label tents evolved from that template: lighter fabrics, 9 mm poles, one vent up high, and often using different length poles – all to save weight without compromising true all-season strength.

Since the Nammatj to Nallo concept worked so well, we did the same with Staika to Allak, and then took it one step further and created a solo version, the Soulo. The Keron collection gave rise to the Kaitum models. The Saivo and Tarra were the inspiration for the Jannu. Both Akto and Unna, however, are “native” Red Label tents in that they were designed not to be Black Label counterparts, but to be exactly what they are: outstanding solo tents for those who go out in all seasons.

We know that the smaller Red Label tents – especially the Jannu and Soulo – are tremendously strong, and that leads some very experienced people to use them, quite successfully, for things which we don’t necessarily recommend Red Label tents. Eric Larsen took an Akto on his attempt to bicycle to the South Pole. Lonnie Dupre used a Soulo in the first winter solo ascent of Denali. And Alexander Barber continues to use the Soulo and Jannu in his solo climbs of the Himalayan 8000 m peaks. We do, however, advise against using Red Label tents for those doing sustained, multi-month journeys – round-the-world bicycle, motorcycle or trekking tours, for example. For these kinds of demanding adventures, we still recommend taking a stronger, more durable Black Label tent.

Such extreme usage aside, Red Label tents are ideal for those who find themselves out in all seasons and all weather, and who want an outstanding balance of light weight, strength, and overall comfort. For more on selecting the right tent for you, please see “Choosing the right Hilleberg tent."

  • Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9mm poles make for a very lightweight yet supremely stable tent.
  • All season construction: outer tent walls extend to the ground and mesh areas are backed with adjustable fabric panels.
  • Tunnel construction offers maximum space to weight ratio and is the ideal choice for mobile journeys.
  • A good amount of room for two occupants and their gear.
  • Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
  • Tunnel design requires only four pegs for pitching, and the simple, single opening continouse sleeve and pole tensioner system is quick to pitch and remarkably stable.
  • A single entrance and vestibule afford easy access and plenty of storage space, but keep the weight very low.
  • The lower portion of the rear outer wall can be rolled up for greater venting options.
  • An optional footprint covers the entire area of the outer tent, including the vestibules. It connects directly to the tent, and can be left attached during pitching.
  • The inner tent can be replaced with a Mesh Inner tent (sold separately; see accessories).
  • The outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires optional pole holderes (see accessories).

Hilleberg Nallo - Pitching instruction

This is the official pitching instruction for Hilleberg Nallo. This film is a supplement to the instruction booklet. We recommend that you both read the booklet carfully as well as practice handling the tent before your first backcountry trip. Thank you for choosing a Hilleberg tent and enjoy your next adventure!

While every Hilleberg tent comes with all the pegs, lines and poles you need, you may, from time to time, need replacements. You may also want to accessorize for more flexibility on your adventures: spare line runners, guy line, and pole holders let you customize your shelter to your needs; special circumstances may dictate special use pegs or additional poles for stability; or you may simply want different sorts of pegs. Footprints can extend the life of your tent and cut down on condensation in the vestibules, and a hank of our strong, light guy line cord is always useful.

Snow and Sand Pegs

Lightweight, tough and remarkably versatile, our Snow & Sand pegs are unique.

At the same time, they are remarkably lightweight. The integrated line and hook gives you the flexibility either to bury the peg sideways in snow or sand, Deadman style, or to use it in a traditional, upright fashion. • 31 cm x 3 cm/12.2" x 1.2" • 50 g/1.8 oz • Set of 6 pegs and XP carrying bag •
