By Bromptonboy VINE VOICE on March 10, 2011
I am approaching this tent from the persepective of a solo bicycle tourist. What appealed to me most was the idea that the outer rain shell is already attached to the inner tent - and the poles are attached as an 'exoskeleton' of sorts. So that in foul weather - the inner tent is not exposed to the elements during pitching.
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.
Higly recommended.

I ordered this tent to go on a week long trip in MT. This thing is built like a fortress. the vestibule is big enough for my pack and boots. and the tent is small enough to not lose much heat. At 10,000ft in the blowing rain it went up fast, and knowing that the inside would be dry was all the reassurance I needed. I had 8 other hikers wanting to change in it because there tents were wet. an added tarp on this tent makes for a great awning. I also bought the ground sheet. or "foot print" for winter camping, along with blizzard stakes. I will be ordering the pole holder system so I can set up the inside tent without the rainfly for hot desert camping. I own 12 tents and this is the one I will always take from now on if solo camping.

This tent is also listed on Amazon as the Hilleberg Soulo 1-person Mountaineering tent. This tent comes in three different outer-layer colors: Red, Forest Green, and Sand.

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.
