On the Radar


Reveals, New Launches and Gear


Hilleberg Niak 1.5

Family-owned Hilleberg has released their newest tent as part of their Yellow Label Series, the Niak 1.5. The one-to-two person tent is ideal for three-season use and features Hilleberg’s lightweight Kerlon 600 fabric and DAC NSL 9 poles. The combination of strength and ultralight materials makes it the perfect tent for backpackers who count every ounce. The tent also features a seemingly unimportant vestibule, however when it is pouring rain and all of your gear is soaking wet and dirty, it’s nice to be able to keep it sheltered outside of your sleeping area. The tent will be available from Hilleberg in the spring of 2016.
