User Review: Hilleberg Soulo
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $550
Reliable and roomy.
- all weather conditions (wind, rain, snow)
- good ventilation
- very reliable
- not very light for easy summer 1-day treks
I've used the Soulo in two big journeys. A 5-day trek in Russia (raining, wet snow) and a 14-day trek around Aconcagua (very strong wind, 5500 m, dust, stones). Maybe it is not so light as other tents. But it's really great. It stands still even the wind is strong. You can quietly sleep during the storm.
It's roomy — very important feature for long solo journey. In other tents you always have to move gentle and avoid touching the walls, they are like little coffins. Soulo is spacious enough to spend half a day when you are waiting for a good weather.
It has good ventilation. It does not become wet after long rains.
It has all nesessary pockets, zips and buttons and doesn't have any excess.
Little bonus: I pitch it in 2-3 minutes.
