      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Hilleberg Nallo 2 vs. Single Wall Bibler/BD/ID

Recommended Posts

Looking for a lightweight winter/spring tent, and trying to decide between the Hillberg N2 and a Single Wall tent. Weights are pretty similar, and all are pretty spendy, so mostly focused on function. the HB seems pretty roomy in comparison, and includes a vestibule for the $450. But the larger footprint has pro's/cons. I'm thiking the double wall design is a plus in this climate. I'd welcome any comments or experiences.

My bibler ahwahnee survived a night in 70+mph winds. Trust it with my life for sure. The large door (I have the older one door model) is awesome in fair weather. I also like my ID MK1 for times when Im trying to lighten the load. Condinsation has never been a problem in either tent, and I always cook inside with a hanging stove.

I have used both the ahwahnee and the Hilleberg Nallo. I prefer the Hilleberg. Its huge vestibule is a plus even with the extra footprint. The inner tent can be used on its own. The outer nylon can also be used like a Betamid in the snow. There is the facility to use two poles in the slieve for big winds. Easy to put up since the outer nylon goes up first. Hope this helps. Also a price of $450 is cheap compared to retail.

 

If you do buy the ahwahnee, i have a vestibule, groundsheet and spare poles that I can sell you.
