    Hilliberg - who’s good for a discount?

    Looking for a Soulo. Best I’ve seen is £610, anyone know of a dealer that discounts them ?

    Joe Brown had them less 20% last month - No good I know!
    For what it's worth I got a discount on my three;
    15% tossers discount at Cotswold.
    Footprint and £100 at Outside Cambridge.
    Footprint & 10% at Alpenstock.

    It's a bit like buying a Breitling …. you need to ask as they're trying to protect the brand.

    These small tents look great but what do you do if it's raining to cook?

    I did check for deliveroo in the Westfjords but it didn’t seem to work.

    Inter strongly though an UBer from 47th in NY to Tower Bridge is £77.

    I've got a Hilleberg Akto, plenty of space to cook in the alcove, just don't carry loads of crap with you.

    I have a Staika but I’m only ever going to solo camp. I didn’t use the second vestibule on recent trip so can shave off that weight with a Soulo or Enan.

    You're having a laugh surely, with wet bike gear in the rain you can't even get onto the sleeping bag without it getting damp.
    I had one with a footprint and despite great expectations I hated it.

    Dry weather or without bike gear would have been a different matter

    I realise I was due a couple sarcastic comments on the chin but I do love the quality of the smaller technical tents. I guess if it's too wet and windy for a tarp you just can't cook Jack?
    Would like something of quality but big enough vestibule.

    I have had no issues wet or dry. I'm not a giant, so plenty of room at the bottom, plus the porch. I also have a two man tunnel tent, but have been using the Akto for the last couple of years with no issues.

    I’ve had several mountain tents and never failed to be able to cook in them. Ok, using my MSR Whisperlite with petrol was a bit fraught when you cracked the fuel valve open after pre-heating but changing over to using Aspen 4T as the main fuel and gel for pre-heating removed that element of danger and I used to boil water for my morning coffee while still in my sleeping back and the stove right next to me.

    I get that, many love them and perhaps I was hasty in getting rid of mine as the quality v lightness was exactly what I wanted ..... perhaps if I was still a 20 yr old

    Nammatj 3 is the only tent you'll ever need … and you can sit bolt upright inside.
    Saying that, I was so impressed that I also bought a Nammatj 3 GT.
    The difference in pack size between the 2 side by side is vast, with the GT being half as big again.


    But the standard size Nammatj just hits that sweet spot between weight, strength, size, height and space.

    I've always considered the Nammat but it would be the 2GT.
    I have 2 other Hillebergs so couldn't afford a 3rd!
