User Review: Hilleberg Nallo 3
Source: bought it new
Great lightweight, versatile, four-season tent. It has good room for two and some gear in the vestibule.
- Weight-to-room ratio
- Good fabrics
- Easy set up
I bought this tent in 2003. It has been used in spring, summer, and fall. It has seen high winds and rain and no condensation. It has a bright yellow interior which keeps the atmosphere in the tent bright and cheery.
It has good headroom for me (5' 7"). In my opinion it is roomy for its weight class. It will sleep 3 if you like cozy. It handles two well and is a palace for one.
With an extra set of poles, you can turn this tent into two shelters. If you like fast and light and prefer floor-less, you can use the poles with the rain fly only. It sets up really quick as the body is attached to the rain fly by a system of t-handles and loops. This is a real blessing if you need to set up in the rain.
I have never had any problems with condensation, and in hot weather it can get hot during the day as the only open screened area is in the front. I do not consider this to be a deal breaker however. Others may.
If I were to re-design this tent, I would probably put some more screen in the tent body, or a couple of screened zippered windows. This would no doubt increase the cost of what is already an expensive tent.
Overall, I would not hesitate to purchase another in a heartbeat. If you need a good, lightweight, and easy to set up shelter for camping or emergencies, it is hard to beat and Hilleberg customer service is awesome. There are cheaper tents out there, but in this weight class, I am not sure you would find a tougher tent.
Good Job, Hilleberg.
