Hilleberg Nallo 2 GT Reviews
Reviewed by Paul Whiteside (Worthing,West Sussex) on 2006-02-06:
General comments: I have owned the Nallo 2 Gt for about three years and paid £350.00 for it. It is without a doubt the best piece of camping gear I have ever bought. I bought it originally for motorcycling holidays around Europe. Having tried numerous two man tents which were too heavy / small / leaked etc, I finally found the Hilleberg. The size to weight ratio is unbelievable. There is enough room for two people (three at a push) and loads of storage for rucksacks, boots and cooking. Having the large porch area is a real luxury, especially when the weather has turned nasty.
It is easy to put up and goes up inner and outer simultaneously which was the main reason why I was first interested in it. It has handy pockets and a clothes line inside which really does come in useful. Comment on this review...
Pros: Size when up. Size when packed. Weight. Quality.
Cons: Pricey. Not discovering it sooner.

General comments: The Nallo is a two person, two hooped-pole tunnel tent, with a sloping porch (vestibule) and tail end. The fly-sheet, which extends to the ground all round, has five staking points on the hem and four additional, double guy lines, fixed to points on each hoop. The inner tent has a sewn in groundsheet and is attached to the inner of the fly with sixteen toggles and rings. The single entrance to the front porch has zip sliders which allows a number of door opening alternatives. It is possible to pitch the tent fly first or as a unit with inner attached. Pitching the inner on its own is only possible with additional pole clips available from Hilleberg.
The build quality of this tent is superb. So far I have not been able to find a stitch out of place or a loose thread anywhere. A nice touch was to find, sewn-in discreetly in a hem, a small printed label saying 'this tent was made by Helju Saar' (so no anonymous sweat-shop production line then).
At all of the staking points and wherever there is an area that is likely to be stressed, there is reinforcement and the stitching is sound and shows no sign of any weakening. The fly is made with the minimum number of seams, these being where the pole sleeves are attached on the outside. The central section is one complete piece of material, as is the tail section. The two zippers at the front and those on the inner door, are heavy and of good quality and the sliders fairly large, ideal for cold or gloved hands.Comment on this review...
Pros: Pitching the tent is simplicity itself.
Cons: None. Top class Helju Saar.

General comments: We have had our Nallo 2 GT for 15 months and paid £350. It was chosen on the basis of a trade off on weight, room, build quality and price. It has been used in various weather conditions, including heavy snow and rain and strong winds, i.e. the full range of conditions one would expect to encounter in the UK. The related photos to this review illustrate some of the conditions we have used it in.
The tent is very easy to erect and take down and itís been very stable in all the conditions we have used it in.
One of the best things we did was to go for the GT rather than the standard version. The extra space has proved to be a very welcome, especially when we have used the tent in winter conditions, when we have spent up to 14 hours in the tent. It saves importing wet things into the inner tent, gives plenty of room for cooking. We recently added a full length footprint, which gives extra protection to the groundsheet of the inner tent, but more importantly it transforms the usability of the vestibule. It has added 500g in weight but this is a worthwhile in terms greatly extending the usefulness of the space available.
All in all we are very pleased with the set up we know have. We have used it/carried it for a walk of the West Highland Way as well as other trips. We would buy this tent again if forced to replace it.

General comments: We used this tent for almost two years, fairly constantly, as we cycled through Africa. As you can imagine, before a trip like this we spent a fair while researching gear, and chose the Hilleberg because of its light weight, space, and durability.
It didn't let us down - the flysheet and inner are both extremely durable, incredibly so given the very light weight of the material. There's acres of space both inside and in the porch, and we often had to cook inside, which was no problem.
For a tent of this size, the weight is fantastic. It's also extremely stable, and very waterproof - I'd be happy using it in most 3-season situations and would only choose a heavier tent for expedition/high mountain use.
We did find that lack of ventilation was a slight problem on hot African nights, but I think this is unlikely to be a problem in most situations. Also, the poles are lightweight and not as strong as some weightier models.

Pros: Loads of space for the weight
Cons: Ventilation could be an issue in the tropics
Poles could be stronger

General comments: I already own a Hilleberg Akto so when I decided I need some more space I already knew Hilleberg was a brand I could trust due to the exellent quality of the Akto. I looked into the Nallo but decided on a Nallo GT. I got my tent and put it up in teh garden for a dry run, the tent is extremely easy to pitch, simply sliding the poles through the sleeves and peg down the tent and guy lines. The general quality is very high with good workmanship all round. The materials seem of a good standard and feel tough and up to the job.
Out in the field I have taken it on some wild camps reasonably high in the lakes. In wind and very wet conditions the tent has performed brilliantly. It copes with whatever wind is thrown at it and sheds the water easily. Comment on this review...
Pros: Well known Hilleberg build quality
Top quality materials
Good weight for size
Cons: Not the cheapes tent around

General comments: I have owned the Nallo 2 GT for almost a year now and used it a number of times in the Scottish Highlands on one and two night trips. I bought it primarily as a 1 or 2 man but it has on one occasion comfortably accommodated 3 people including 3 rucksacks in the extended vestibule. I bought it as a trade-off between weight and space - I wanted a comfortable 1-man with the space for two if required as well as the space to cook and relax under cover when the weather turns. So far this tent has proved its worth. The build quality is outstanding and I have had no problems with condensation. It's the easiest tent I have owned for putting up, bringing down and packing away - especially since both the inner and outer remain connected. Would I buy another one ? I don't intend to since I'd like this one to last many many years but if I had to I would, despite the crazy price.Comment on this review...
Pros: Extended vestibule. Two entrances. Lots of space. Excellent build quality. Easy to erect and dismantle - even in the dark. Lightweight for what could be considered a 3-man tent (2.5Kg).
Cons: Does not pack as small as one would like, but with a bit of ingenuity you can split the sheets and poles and use 3 compression straps to squish down the sheets to a very slim profile. The price takes your breathe away but considering it is made in the EU this has to be expected.
