FEATURES of the Hilleberg Soulo 1 Person Tent Outer tent fabric is Kerlon 1200 and the poles are 9 mm, which makes the tent very lightweight, strong and stable All season construction tent wall can be extended to ground and the mesh area is backed with an adjustable fabric panel Dome construction with multiple crossing pole points provide excellent stability for snow-load handling capability Used ideally as a one person tent Separable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching Self supporting dome design requires no pegs for pitching Tent contains pole system that makes for quick and easy set up Single entrance tent with single vestibule configuration allows for easy entrance and storage space Add an optional footprint that will cover the outer tent area including the vestibule. It can directly connect to the tent, and can be attached while pitching. The complete tent's outer or inner tents can be used separately. For the pitching the inner tent alone it requires optional pole holders. Designed for short and long trips in less harsh environments and conditions in all seasons like the forests in winter and summer Great for withstanding heavy storms, but the lighter weight is not ideal on super harsh extended trips Capable of withstanding heavy storm conditions, and the lighter weight is why some experienced hikers take this along instead of a more durable, heavier tent Outer tent goes all the way to the ground for awesome all weather protection Designed using lighter weight zippers as well as lighter weight inner tent and floor fabrics to keep the weight at a minimum

The tent is completely self supporting - so it can be pitched almost anywhere. The 3 aluminum poles have color coded sleeves - so that the guess work is taken away from pole placements. The inner vestibule is not huge, but large enough to handle most of your gear. You can choose between a red or green exterior - and each has a cheery yellow inner tent.
This is a 4-season tent, and I have used it in heavy cold rain. I have yet to use it in snow, but the shape and taughtness give me plenty of confidence this tent will hold up admirably.
A spare pole \ emergency repair kit is included. The vestibule does not have a floor - but the custom footprint (sold separately) does that job if that is what you need. The tent with accompanying gear weighs 4 lbs 10 oz. (2.1 kg). There is a separate kit that can be purchased that allows you to pitch the inner tent by itself, or pitch the shell only.
Be aware of major design and build flaws that completely call into question this tent's value proposition.
Pros: Pitching outer and inner tent shells is done together.
Cons: Be aware of major design and build flaws that preclude this from being a four season tent.
Design issues: 1.) This tent has a wind-catching profile. I was seriously considering adding a third shell to function both as a tarp and as a windbreak, to provide a more aerodynamic profile to stand up to the wind. 2.) The manufacturer includes a disclaimer note that effectively says not to worry about the inner and outer shells rubbing together in the elements, that this fact doesn't affect the tent's performance. If their claim is true, then no one needs more than a single-pane window in any structure, ever. The simple facts are the inner and outer shells of this tent frequently touch in moderate winds (e.g., 20 mph or over) no matter how well the tent is staked, and each time they do touch, the two layers protecting a person from the elements are reduced to one. That is not good news. It gets even worse when wind speeds increase. Plan to seek another shelter; mine didn't survive winds over 40 mph. The tent failed completely.
Implementation issues: 1.) When the tent is pitched, there is no "tight as a drum" tension feeling with each layer, and 2.) the overall construction of seams / zippers doesn't lead to me to believe that "tight as a drum" feeling could be supported. In fact, the vertical entry way zipper to the inner tent failed completely after three camping trips.
A. My ~1995 era North Face Mountain-24 tent is a true four season, mountaineering, two person tent 1.) does have a "tight as a drum" feeling when it is deployed, 2.) it does have special components to prohibit the tent layers from ever making contact. I have experienced ~80mph winds in this tent in group outings without any issues at all. Then again, this is the same tent that appears in Himalayan expeditions as maize yellow pimples on a mountainside. My tent from the North Face is bomb proof in 80 mph winds, and it is what I've come to expect in a four-season mountaineering tent, The cost for these two tents is comparable, but the Hilleberg Soulo was shredded in 40 mph winds.
B. A much more effective four season, 1-person tent solution would be an OR Alpine Bivy and a homemade lean-to. I fell back on this setup when the Hilleberg Soulo failed. The cost for this solution is about half what the cost for the Hilleberg Soulo is.
I cannot recommend this tent, as nice as it appears. I am returning it. If you are looking for a real 4-season mountaineering tent, I recommend option A. If you are looking for a 3+ season tent and ease of deployment, I recommend option B.
