In essence, the Nallo and its extended vestibule version, the Nallo GT, are the ultralight versions of the Nammatj and Nammatj GT. They excel in any situation where the lightest possible tent is needed, but where true all season strength and reliability might be required. Both tents’ tunnel tent design and ultra light weight make them ideal for mobile adventures, where you move your tent every day. And, because of their exceptional weight to space ratio, they are perfect for long distance endeavors where light weight is a greater priority than absolute strength. Certainly, they are suitable for exposed and/or above treeline use in all seasons, but because they are built using our ultralight Kerlon 1200, 9 mm poles, and lighter gauge zippers, they do not have the same strength as their Nammatj cousins. That said, Kerlon 1200, with its 12 kilo tear strength, is an order of magnitude stronger even than most so-called "expedition grade" fabrics, and so is easily robust enough to handle adverse situations well.
The Nallo and Nallo GT’s salient characteristic may be their ultra light weight, but both are still fully able to handle all season, all weather adventures. This explains why these tents are the first choice of those needing the lightest weight tents that still offer 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. Globe-trotting trekkers often carry the Nallo, as it ensures they will have private accommodations wherever they go, and solo hikers love having near-palatial space without any real weight penalty. Families with younger children and those who hike with their dogs love the extra space – and, of course, the ultra light weight – the Nallo GT has to offer.

I already own a Hilleberg Akto which I found to be an excellent tent but being a little bit small if you need to spend more time in the tent. I was considering either a Niak or a Rogen tent but hiking in the Swedish mountains I wanted a tent where I could close the inner tent to conserve heat in case of windy conditions. For me, the Nallo is a perfect combination of volume, protection against the elements and weight. The Nallo also offers ample space for gear and proper head room which I do value a lot. Hilleberg put up some tips on how to further improve the airflow between the inner and outer tent which I'm yet to try. The idea is to disconnect the inner and outer tent at the foot end of the tent using the additional two tent pegs provided. By adding some guy line between the outer tent and the pegs you increase the distance between the inner and outer tent. Should reduce/eliminate any possible condensation on the inner tent. Service from S&S Archery was very quick and speedy and I got timely information of the progress of my order. Shipping was super fast. 2 days from US to Dubai. Hard to beat. I can really recommend Hilleberg tents and S&S Archery.
This is my first experience with Hilleberg tents. While I've mainly used "outfitter" base camp style tents (canvas, large heavy) with stoves I have found my desires and mission changing over the years. The goal was to simplify and lighten the load, making camping, hiking, and hunting a more reasonable and manageable experience. With it's balance of 4 season capabilities and light weight packability, the Nallo 2 fits the mission perfectly. Nallo 2 is very easy to set up and take down. I used it on archery pronghorn hunt in Idaho this past weekend. 2 hunters, 2 sleeping mats, 2 quilts and the essentials fit perfectly in
the tent, while vestibule kept everything else protected. Build quality is very impressive and everything carefully thought out in it's design. Can't wait to get it in the mountains for archery elk and whitetail in a couple weeks.
I would recommend this tent to anyone looking for a serious backpacking, hunting tent with 4 season capabilities. You won't be disappointed with its quality and capabilities.
