I’m finally back in Sweden and at last I could get my hands on my newest purchase, the Hilleberg Enan. I bought the 2016-version with V-pegs and the stronger (but heavier) Kerlon 1000 fabric.
This will not be a review but merely my first thoughts of it, as I’ve only done a test-pitch.
When I first unpacked the box with the tent and the foot-print I was surprised how dark the green in the flysheet was. The bag, made by the same material, looked almost black. The tent came in one bag, and the foot-print in another bag. I plan to keep the footprint on at all times, and therefor flipped the tent over, and attached the foot-print.
I pitched the tent as the instructionvideo tell you to do it. It was easy to set it up. I was kind of in a hurry, so I didn’t have time to fine-tune it. The was an information-booklet included with lots of pictures showing the complete pitching-process. But if you’ve pitched a tunnel-tent before it really isn’t a big deal.
As I said I was in a hurry so I just had time to set the tent up, and then put it down again. But first impressions are good. It seems like a solid tent. The flyshet feels thin as a butterfly-wing, but I’ve done a tear-test on a sample of the fabric, and it is really tough. I can’t wait to try this tent for real. Due to work I probably wont have the time for a hike until the first weekend in august. But I’ll update when I’ve tried the tent for real.
