I think this is an outstanding tent. I'm using it…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: approx 8000 SEK


I think this is an outstanding tent. I'm using it for kayaking and when ccountry skiing. It is easy to set up, since both the inner and outer tent are connected. It folds easy.


  • Totally safe whatever the conditions


  • Rather bulky when storing it in the kayak, but my hatches are rather small.

After checking the instructions, it is realy straight-forward to raise the tent. It is totally stable, even in the toughest winds, and if there is no soil, eg when setting up the tent on rocks, there are only 2 lines that need to be secured with a rock or a tri-cam.

I have never had problems with rain or condensation, thanks to the large ventilation openings in the roof. These openings can easily be adjusted ffrom the inside.

The entrance can handle a lot of gear and still leave room for cooking, and there is a smaller absid in the other end.

Since all poles are the same length it is easy to set up the tent even in the dark.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Hilleberg Saivo Tent is well-suited to a wide array of adventures. It is the quintessential tent for those, such as climbers and ski mountaineers in isolated, high-mountain terrain, who will leave their base camp unattended for extended periods of time. At the same time, its strength and space to weight ratio also make it a superb choice for expedition use in demanding conditions (the Saivo is often used by teams going to the South Pole). Ski and paddle tourers, as well as desert travelers, have long appreciated the Saivos spacious interior and roomy vestibules, as well as its self-supporting structure and easy-to-pitch design. Of course, all these attributes also make the Saivo a great choice for less demanding trips, as well, whether thats a weekend of car camping or a leisurely, week-long, base camp-oriented hiking vacation in the mountains.
