i had the hilleberg akto tent man i hated it like sleeping in a coffin useless piece of kit and damn expensive,i then still have the Mountain Hardware spear gt2, much better i bought it used for 100 euro like new but its 2.5kg and a pain to pitch also the fly doesn't go all the way to the ground that cracke me up ,sorry i'm a geek i know but look its what i want in a tent,loads room easy pitch light loads of room.
ok so put me up against the wall a shoot me.
unfortunately, with tents, you can't have it all...have to compromise somewhere
