Saivo $1275

Like the Saitaris, the Saivo is well-suited to a wide array of adventures. It is the quintessential tent for those, such as climbers and ski mountaineers in isolated, high-mountain terrain, who will leave their base camp unattended for extended periods of time. At the same time, its strength and space to weight ratio also make it a superb choice for expedition use in demanding conditions (the Saivo is often used by teams going to the South Pole). Ski and paddle tourers, as well as desert travelers, have long appreciated the Saivo’s spacious interior and roomy vestibules, as well as its self-supporting structure and easy-to-pitch design. Of course, all these attributes also make the Saivo a great choice for less demanding trips, as well, whether that’s a weekend of car camping or a leisurely, week-long, base camp-oriented hiking vacation in the mountains.

“Saivo” means “holy lake” in Sami, the language of the people indigenous to northern Scandinavia.

    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.

  • Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and 10 mm poles make for an exceptionally strong and stable tent.
  • All season construction: outer tent walls extend to he ground and mesh areas are backed with adjustable fabric panels.
  • Dome construction with multiple pole crossing points provide outstanding snow-load handling capability.
  • Plenty of room for three occupants and their gear.
  • Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
  • Self-supporting dome design requires only the vestibules to be pegged, and the innovative full sleeve plus sleeve and clip pole system make for quick, easy set up.
  • Dual entrances and vestibules ensure that one door can always be situated out of the wind and provide flexible entry/exit and storage 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 outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires optional pole holderes (see accessories).

Hilleberg Saivo - Pitching instruction

This is the official pitching instruction for Hilleberg Saivo. 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! For more information about Hilleberg and our products, please visit our website at http://www.hilleberg.com

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.

Saivo Footprint

$106

This though ground sheet helps both to protect your tent’s floor from abrasion and to keep ground moisture from rising in the vestibule. This footprint covers the full area of the Saivo outer tent.

Pole Holders for Inner Tent

Extra pole holders are needed when you want to pitch the inner tent by itself. Link these to the corners of the inner, and place the ends of the poles into them. Eight pole holders, two for each pole, are needed to pitch the Saivo inner tent on its own.

Y-Pegs

Y-Peg

$38

Every new Saivo 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 Y-Peg is exceptionally strong yet quite lightweight, and its "Y" profile gives both excellent penetration in hard ground and plenty of surface area for reliable hold in softer conditions. Both because of its shape and its durable, hardened aluminum body, the sturdy Y-Peg can be hammered into hard ground. Its bright, gold anodized color makes it easy to see, and an attached string loop provides for easy removal.

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow and Sand Pegs

$75

Lightweight, tough and remarkably versatile, our Snow & Sand pegs are unique. After finding most so-called snow pegs to be too soft – they would bend in any but the fluffiest snow – we developed our own. Made from hardened aluminum, our Snow Pegs are built to withstand both very hard usage, including the inevitable contact with shovels, crampons and other winter gear, and very hard snow. 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.

Extra Poles

Your tent comes with poles, an extra repair section and aluminum repair sleeve, but spare poles can come in handy, both for repairs and for "double poling," which gives extra strength and stability.

Guy Line and Line Runners

Our proprietary 2 & 3 mm red and white guy line cord is strong, light and easy to see. Its interwrap construction interweaves super strong Vectran cord longitudinally with polyester, producing a cord with no sheath to slip, near zero stretch, minimal water absorption, an easy-to-handle soft feel, high UV resistance, and a stout 60 kg (132 lb) breaking strength for the 2 mm and 80 kg (176 lb) for the 3mm.

Our sturdy and reliable line runners are available in 2 and 3 mm sizes, and are designed to work perfectly with our 2 and 3 mm guy lines. They lock securely, and are easy to adjust even while wearing mittens.

3 mm guy line and line runners come standard with all tents except for our Yellow Label tents which come with 2 mm guy line and line runners.
