A fully free standing, very light solo tent that can be pitched anywhere, anytime.
Our simplest solo tent, the fully free standing Unna is supremely easy to pitch nearly anywhere – rocky shores, narrow ridgelines, dense forests (or, of course, even on “perfect” tent sites) – and it boasts an impressive amount of interior space. It is ideal for journeys in any season where low weight is a high priority, and where the terrain makes for tricky pitching conditions. Rather than a vestibule, the Unna has a spacious interior that easily accommodates the occupant and gear – or, in a pinch, two people. And by disconnecting a corner of the inner tent, one can create a virtual vestibule and keep the inner tent dry while entering or exiting in rainy conditions. Its dome design handles snow loading well, and its roominess and light weight lend themselves very well to mobile journeys, where you pitch your tent each day. Little wonder then that it has become a favorite of paddle tourers, year ‘round backpackers, mountaineers, cycle tourers and casual campers alike.
“Unna” means “small” in Sami, the language of the people indigenous to northern Scandinavia.
“Perfection in design.”
-American Alpine Institute, USA
The US-based American Alpine Institute presented its coveted Guides Choice Award to five Hilleberg models, including the Unna, declaring, “They are perfection in design.”
Unna Mesh Inner Tent
The Unna 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 Unna 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 Unna Mesh Inner Tent retains all of its venting and viewing advantages while the Tarp provides protection from rain or shade from the sun.
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 Akto outer tent.
Weight: 10 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. Four pole holders, two for each pole, are needed to pitch the Unna inner tent on its own.
Every new Unna 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.

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.387 cm x 9 mm
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.
