Made in Europe.
Hilleberg modelled the new Enan after their award-winning, best-selling Akto, with the goal of making a three season version that was as light as possible while still having the strength we require from a Hilleberg tent. We knew that we could have made the Enan even lighter, but we also knew that doing so would yield less than “true Hilleberg” durability and function.
We used the Akto’s proven single pole design and its single-ended full pole sleeve system, then reduced weight by using lighter fabrics in both the inner and outer tents. Indeed, we developed our 10 denier, Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric specifically for the Enan. At the same time, we kept the same 9 mm DAC NSL pole the Akto uses, because the weight savings of a smaller diameter pole is quite negligible, while the loss in strength is significant.
As with our other Yellow Label tents, the Enan’s venting system is built into its construction: a full mesh inner tent door, in combination with outer tent head and foot ends of tough mesh both allows and encourages constant air flow. For very windy and rainy conditions, Kerlon 1000 fabric panels can be rolled down and secured to cover the outer tent’s mesh ends. When not in use, these panels roll up and stuff into integrated pockets.
During development, our testers used the Enan for everything from adventure travel in Southeast Asia, to backpacking trips in Europe and the US. All praised how easy it was to pitch, its roominess and its comfort, and all were quite impressed with its strength – and, of course, with its very pleasing light weight!
“Enan” is a small river in the Jämtland mountains in northern Sweden.

By: Tim on 14 October 2017Short and sweet - I really like this little 1 person tent. Besides the insane high-quality and attention to detail, the obvious outstanding feature of the Enan is weight. Make no mistake, when Hilleberg state a weight, they mean it. I put both my Enan and the Tarra on the scales right out of the box and they weigh the stated weight. Very impressive. Only gripe so far with the Enan is that I can't find a locally sourced replacement pole - I'd like to have one spare. Wild Earth, please source these. Else, I highly recommend this tent. VERY high quality and insanely quick to both deploy and pack away.
