A completely free standing solo tent that is both remarkably light and expedition-ready.
Since the Soulo’s free standing construction allows it to be pitched almost anywhere, and since it is remarkably light and tremendously strong, it is ideal for almost any adventure. During its development, nearly every tester found it perfect for whatever trip it was used on. Mountaineers, both recreational and professional, will take to its strength and low weight, as will backcountry hunters and winter campers. Bicycle, motorcycle and paddle tourers will choose it for its free standing simplicity and compact packed size. Backpackers in all seasons, long distance trekkers, and weekend hikers alike will be drawn to its light weight and integrated vestibule, and ski tourers and ski mountaineers will appreciate its snow load handling. Tall users will love its length, and all will appreciate its remarkable overall roominess.
“Soulo” means “island” in Sami, the language of the people indigenous to northern Scandinavia.
“There are no other solo tents that are as stable or as comfortable.”
in 2009, Germany’s Outdoor named the Soulo Editor’s Choice, saying “[The Soulo] is the first truly convincing example of a free standing solo tent.” In 2011, Outdoor repeated the honor commenting. “There are lighter one-person tents than the 2.2-kg Soulo. But there are no other solo tents that are as stable or as comfortable.”
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.
Soulo Mesh Inner Tent
The Soulo Mesh Inner Tents can also be used in place of the standard inner tent: simply disconnect the standard inner tent and button in the appropriate Mesh Inner Tent. Used alone, The Soulo Mesh Inner Tent is a simple, highly versatile option for use in dry, warm conditions. Its full mesh walls provide not only maximum airiness and protection from flying and crawling insects, but also 360° views. When used in combination with a Tarp, the Soulo Mesh Inner Tent retains all of its venting and viewing advantages while the Tarp provides protection from rain or shade from the sun.
Includes pole holder kit for inner tent.
Weight: 1 lb 7 oz
This tough 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 Soulo outer tent.
Weight: 8 oz
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. Included with mesh inner tent.$25
Every new Soulo 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. Very light yet very strong, our V-Peg is made from hardened aluminum, and it has specifically engineered thick yet light spine and sides to prevent bending. Its "V" cross section provides a fine balance of penetration in hard ground and holding capability in looser soil. Anodized a highly visible gold, the V-peg also has an integrated string loop for easy removal from the ground.

Made from solid Titanium, the super strong yet lightweight stinger can easily handle being pounded into hard ground, and its integrated string loop makes for easy removal.

So-named for its fluted square cross-section, our new X-Peg is built from extruded, then anodized, aluminum, and is designed to take on the most demanding usage. The X-peg’s 30 cm (12 in) length and burly construction make it an ideal option when you need maximum penetration and holding power in hard ground, and it is stout enough to be hammered into the ground, even with a light sledge. An open, upside down “L” hook near the top of the peg allows quick securing of guy lines, and a separate closed ring has an attached string loop to make removing the peg easier.

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 build 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.

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.
Ideal for keeping your gear better organized. Standard versions of the peg, pole and tent bags are included with all new tents. The XP Bags are constructed of extra-stout PU coated nylon designed to withstand high use.

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.
