Hilleberg tents don’t really fit in with my mental model of a four-season tent—with a long, tube-like shape that isn’t free-standing, I was skeptical of their ability to hold up to wind and snow. But I’d heard a lot of buzz about them so I decided to take a closer look. My first night in the Nallo 2GT was up in Beehive Basin and it dumped a couple feet of snow and howled all night. The tent was solid and resisted the elements well. Setup also went smoothly; just three idiot-proof crescent-shaped poles and four stakes set at the corners. The inside of the tent (30.1 sf) is spacious enough for two larger adults but the real treat is the 23.7 sf vestibule; you could throw a party in this thing! Two full packs, boots, and a stuffed animal monkey with plenty of room left over to get in and out. At 5 lbs 12 oz it packs fairly well too, and overall this tent seems worth its higher-than-average cost. $530. hilleberg.com, 866-848-8368.
