The Saivo has been totally redesigned for 2004! The new version is most likely the best tent for both base camp and people moving into seriously wild country. The Saivo is in a class of its own with truly generous dimensions, superior ventilation, unmatched stability, ease of handling in rough weather and this at only 4,7 kg / 10lbs 5oz!

Saivo has Hilleberg’s innovative hooks system, allowing you to pitch the tent in more or less any environment. The guy lines are attached to long line loops which can be thrown around a cross section of poles before they are pegged down. Poles are a heavy duty 10 mm. The Saivo is self-supporting – only the vestibules need pegging. Two large vents are placed high up in the roof. They can be operated from inside and outside and are protected from rain by the large cover that spans over the four poles. Also the outer entrances can be opened at the top underneath the cover for extra ventilation. The cover has four guy lines, adding even more stability to the tent when the weather really gets nasty. The outer tent entrances are cut asymmetrically so that you can either open them from the top of the vestibule, at the end of it or from the side, all depending on wind and weather. The zippers of the outer entrances are secured with hooks at the bottom to avoid that these open in strong winds.

A great base camp tent, the new Saivo is of course also most suitable for trekking in the hills and will provide a heavenly home when on extended canoe trips.

A complete tent consists of inner and outer tent with guylines and runners, poles, pegs, stuff bags, spare pole section, repair sleeve and instructions.

Excellent tent. 5 out of 5 stars

Having the older model with better (read bigger) vestibule. Excellent tent. It has been home in extremely rough weather over the years.
