Hilleberg's new trekking pole tent is nothing short of impressive, as you'd expect. This cavernous tent is lightweight, practical and easy to set up. A versatile design allows you to use it in a number of ways depending on the conditions and your requirements.
Very light, roomy, remarkably strong and versatile ridge tent for warm weather adventures.
The new Anaris is a very light and airy two-person ridge tent inspired by the first Hilleberg model, the Keb. Conceived for warm-weather backpackers and trekkers who prefer hiking with trekking poles, its two-vestibule construction is configured so the occupants sleep parallel to the vestibules. This provides impressive room for two people, with plenty of space for both and a dedicated entrance and vestibule for each. It also offers – along with the Anaris’s remarkably low weight – voluminous luxury for the solo traveler.
Backpackers who use trekking poles for hiking often look for a lightweight way to integrate their poles into their shelter. While many choose a minimal setup, such as our Tarp 5 and Mesh Tent 1, the Anaris offers an elegantly light solution for those who prefer the comfort of a true Hilleberg tent. As with all our models, the Anaris has linked outer and inner tents, allowing simultaneous pitching of both or separate use of either. The outer tent, made with our very light yet strong Kerlon 1000, provides both outstanding weather protection, and, thanks to the walls not going all the way to the ground and the curved patterning at their bottoms, full-time air flow. Roll both doors on both vestibules completely away, and the inner tent’s full mesh doors and entrance walls provide superlative venting for very warm conditions.
The Anaris offers more levels of versatility, as well. While built for a trekking pole pitch, it can also be set up by suspending the ridge ends, and either one or both of the outer tent walls can be fully rolled away for maximal breeziness in hot weather. And for those who want the option of a more minimal shelter solution on some trips, the outer tent alone makes a kind of “super tarp”: it offers the full functionality of rolling away walls and vestibule doors yet weighs just 640 g (1 lb 7 oz).

Hilleberg's Anaris Tent is a great example of just how luxurious a trekking pole tent can be. Using the lightest weight Kerlon 1000 fabric, the weight has been kept down to a minimum without sacrificing strength or durability. The simple, ridge design effectively sheds rain and despite the size it copes with the wind really well too. It is categorised as a Yellow Label tent, meaning three season but it is still able to withstand poorer conditions with ease. The usual pre-linked inner and outer make pitching and packing away easy while the ability to separate them and use the outer alone as a tarp make this a versatile tent.
It obviously requires two trekking poles to set up but this is fairly easy to do and once you've got the hang of it you can have it pitched in no time. Once pitched the space inside and with the two vestibules is enormous. The inner provides a very generous two person space while the vestibules are big enough for any kit, cooking in bad weather and hiding under for shelter with loads of room to spare. The dual entrance design make the tent more practical for two users and the doors can be adjusted to allow you to enjoy the views, open up for air in warmer conditions and provide shelter without being fully enclosed.
Although it's certainly not the lightest, especially for a trekking pole tent, what you get is Hilleberg's usual top quality design and materials, unquestionable durability and an unbelievable amount of sheltered space.
