THE Hilleberg SAIVO is well-suited to a wide array of adventures. It is the quintessential tent for those, such as climbers and ski mountaineers in isolated, high-mountain terrain, who will leave their base camp unattended for extended periods of time. At the same time, its strength and space to weight ratio also make it a superb choice for expedition use in demanding conditions (the Saivo is often used by teams going to the South Pole). Ski and paddle tourers, as well as desert travelers, have long appreciated the Saivos spacious interior and roomy vestibules, as well as its self-supporting structure and easy-to-pitch design. Of course, all these attributes also make the Saivo a great choice for less demanding trips, as well, whether thats a weekend of car camping or a leisurely, week-long, base camp-oriented hiking vacation in the mountains.

snow-load handling capability.

that one door can always be situated out
of the wind and provide flexible entry/
exit and storage options.

and can be left attached during pitching.
