In the summer of 2015, Linnéa Grahn and Emma Lockhart did a fully self-supported run along the northwest coast of Scotland from Cape Wrath in the north to the Mull of Galloway in the south. They covered nearly 900 km (560 miles) in 24 days, and loved their Niak. “With the wettest summer in living memory, we really put the Niak to the test with convincing results. It is now our big favorite and an obvious choice for all of our upcoming lightweight trips.” Photo: Mind for Adventure (mindforadventure.com). The Niak, a very light two-person tent that  is a palace for one, is a highly versatile solution to warmer weather trips. Shown here on Joeri and Anita van der Kloet’s 6-month backpacking trip through Scandinavia. Photo: Joeri van der Kloet (nordic2016.com). The Niak is a great choice for any adventure in the warmer months of the year. It’s quite light, can sleep one or two, and has impressive weather protection.

The Niak is wonderfully versatile: it is very light, it sleeps two comfortably or one luxuriously, and is an equally fine choice for backpacking trips or paddling tours, as seen here on the northwest side of Lambskär in the Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden.

Niak $795

The Niak expands on our concept of very lightweight yet remarkably strong three-season tents that we introduced with our one-person Enan. 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 comfortable than our other two person models, so the 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.

As with our other Yellow Label models, the Niak’s outer tent is made from our lightest weight Kerlon 1000, 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 – inspired by our Red Label Unna solo tent – 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 Niak went through well over 250 backcountry nights of use, in all types of weather, in Scandinavia and the US, as well as in the Alps and in Scotland. 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.

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.

While we originally built our reputation on all-season tents, we have always known that there were many users who wanted a lighter weight tent, and who didn’t need all-season strength and comfort. But we have never subscribed to the traditional concept of “3 season tents,” which always seemed to equate to “summer tents.” In part, the problem is that those three seasons – spring, summer, and fall – are very different in, say, northern Sweden, than they are in Australia.

In 2010, we began the project that would become our Yellow Label tents, which we introduced in 2012. Rather than creating the typical “3-season tents,” however, we set out to build lighter weight tents that would work well in more protected terrain but in all types of weather during the warmer, snow-free months of the year, regardless of geographic locale.

With the goal of maximizing light weight without sacrificing too much strength, we experimented with a variety of solutions. Initially, we put the poles on the inner tent, but still with a linked outer tent. After a number of such test tents literally flattened during wind testing, we adopted our proven system of linked but separable inner and outer tents, with the poles on the outer. This solution performed so much better, that we knew it was the ideal choice for these tents.

During this process, we also discovered that the weight savings from using smaller than 9 mm diameter poles – the same type of poles found in our Red Label, all-season tents – was slight, while the loss of strength was substantial. So, again, we stayed with the proven solution – 9 mm DAC NSL poles.

We did use lighter weight fabrics, in both inner and outer tents. For the outer tent, we developed Kerlon 1000. We knew that warmer weather, snow-free use does not place the same stress on a tent that true, all-season use does, but we still needed to maintain enough strength for heavy rains and windy conditions. Kerlon 1000 boasts a substantial 8 kg/17.6 lb tear strength.

Another way we saved weight without compromising strength was to integrate the venting directly into the construction. Rather than adding vents, which would have added weight, we built in full time venting, either through a space between the outer tent and the ground in the Anjan, Anjan GT, Rogen and Niak models, or through incorporating protected mesh panels into the outer tent, as found in the Enan.

The result is a group of tents that are ideal for users who go out below tree line and in more protected terrain in the snow-free months of the year, and who demand light weight, but not at the expense of strength enough for the conditions they might encounter.

  • Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric and 9 mm poles make for a very lightweight yet strong tent.
  • 3 season design: ventilation is built into the construction, and the inner tent mesh areas have no backing fabric panels.
  • Self-supporting dome design requires only the vestibule to be pegged, and the simple full sleeve and tensioner pole system make for quick, easy set up.
  • The Niak has room enough for two plus gear, and is also a spacious mansion for one.
  • Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
  • The single entrance/single vestibule configuration affords easy access as well as storage space.
  • An optional footprint covers only the inner tent area and not the vestibule. 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).

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.

Every new tent includes enough pegs to pitch it, but a spare peg or two can save you the frustration of losing one in the middle of a long trip. Our lightest peg, the new, hardened aluminum Y-Peg UL has a “Y” cross-section similar to our Y-Peg, but in a smaller (and lighter) package. While not quite as robust as the larger Y-Peg, it offers a great balance of hard ground penetration and soft ground holding power. Its gold anodizing makes it highly visible, and the attached string loop makes it easier to pull it from the ground. • 14 cm/5.5" • 9 g/0.3 oz • Set of 10 pegs •
