REDMOND, WA – June 15, 2018 - Spinning off the very popular two-person Allak tent introduced a decade ago, Hilleberg is proud to introduce the new three-person Allak 3 for Spring 2019. Impressively strong, remarkably light and fully freestanding – including two integrated vestibules – the Allak 3 can be pitched anywhere in most any conditions.
Like the Allak 2, the Allak 3 boasts two entrances and two integrated vestibules, and is part of Hilleberg’s all-season Red Label series, tents that prioritize lighter weight, but are plenty strong for challenging backcountry weather conditions that can surprise you year-round. The Allak 3 is ready and able, out of the box, to handle winter weather, yet light enough for summer backpacking.
The Allak 3 features 40.9 square feet of inner tent area and will easily accommodate three people and their gear, just as the original Allak, now called the Allak 2, will comfortably lodge two. The Allak 3 is also an excellent choice for two people who want more room or have more gear.
With a minimum weight of 7 lbs. 1 oz., the Allak 3 features Hilleberg’s Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric which is extremely lightweight,yet also boasts a minimum tear strength of 26 lbs.,which is much stronger than many “expedition grade” tent materials. Its three 9 mm poles cross each other in three places, providing a sturdy structure, and the easy-to-use pole system combines short pole sleeves with clips for and quick and easy pitching.
As with all Hilleberg tents, the linked inner and outer tents allow either simultaneous pitching or separate use for the greatest versatility. And, as with all Hilleberg all-season tents, the outer tent walls extend to the ground and the mesh areas are backed with adjustable fabric panels. The standard inner tent can be replaced with the optional Allak 3 Mesh Inner Tent, which can also be used on its own.
The Hilleberg Allak 3 will be available to consumers in Spring 2019 with a MSRP of $1160. Check out the new Allak 3 at the Outdoor Retailer Show, booth #39007-UL.
