THE NALLO MODELS are known for their light weight. But it's their remarkable strength that makes these tents the first choice for anyone needing the lightest weight tents that still offer all-season, all weather functionality. This includes hikers of all types, of course, but also wilderness photographers, climbers, hunters, and other adventurers who want to get more out of carrying less. Solo hikers can easily choose the near-palatial space of the Nallo 2 without any real weight penalty, just as two- and three-person parties can "size up" for the Nallo 3 and Nallo 4, respectively, without exceeding their weight "budget." The story of Nallo. IN THE MID-1980S, Bo Hilleberg set out to design a two pole, double wall, one-person tent that was spacious and had a very low weight. He found he couldn't get the weight he wanted with a design he liked. But during the process, he realized he could create a very lightweight, all-season two-person tent, with the same amount of space as the very popular Nammatj, which had been introduced a few years earlier. "There was a demand at that time for a lighter, two-person tent," recalls Bo, "especially by those users who did not need the strength of the Nammatj." And so the Nallo was born (along with the germ of the idea that would become the Akto some years later). Introduced in 1987, the Nallo used the same diameter poles and the same Kerlon 1500 outer tent fabric (with its remarkable 15 kg/33 lb tear strength) as did the Nammatj at that time. It was also roughly the same shape, but with a center entrance and integrated vent hood in the single vestibule for weight savings. "The Nallo was one of our biggest successes," recalls Bo. "It won quite a few prizes in its first year." By 1990, the Nallo had become the "Nallo 2," as it was joined in the line by the Nallo 3. Both were enthusiastically received, and in 1995, when the European Outdoor Award was given for the very first time, the Nallo was named best overall outdoor product. Despite all this success, Bo knew he could improve on the Nallo concept. In 2002, he completely redesigned all the Nallo models with a shorter back pole and a longer front one, while retaining the front entrance vestibule. More importantly, we had developed a new, lighter weight Kerlon 1000 fabric, with a 10 kg/22 lb tear strength, which was conceived specifically for the Nallo tents. Together, the new design and new fabric both saved weight and created more sitting height up front. The same year, we also introduced both the 4-person Nallo 4, and 2-, 3-, and 4-person GT models, featuring our extended vestibule construction. All of the redesigned Nallo models were a great success, and the GT versions were so popular that that demand outpaced production. The Nallo redesign was the first time we made tents lighter through materials, and the Nallo models were the first tents - indeed, the keystone tents - in what would become our Red Label line. But improvements did not stop. In 2003, we introduced improved Kerlon fabrics: Kerlon 1800 (18 kg/40 lb tear strength) replaced Kerlon 1500, and Kerlon 1200, (12 kg/26 lb tear strength) replaced the Kerlon 1000 of the time. We added an additional, interior vent in to all Nallo models in 2005, and in 2006, we reconfigured the Nallo GT model's extended vestibules with a more adjustable vent and two entrances. We also added a short zipper to the back wall of the outer tent on all Nallo and Nallo GT models, which provided even more venting options. Today, the Nallo and Nallo GT models remain some of our most popular, and with good reason: they are strong and roomy yet quite light, and they offer true all-season function. They have been used all over the world, in all seasons, by cyclists, climbers, ski mountaineers, trekkers and backpackers. The Nallo and Nallo GT tents also became the inspiration for the very light Anjan and Anjan GT models, "founding members" of our three-season Yellow Label line. Features: Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9mm poles make for a very lightweight yet supremely stable tent. All season construction: outer tent walls extend to the ground and mesh areas are backed with adjustable fabric panels. Tunnel construction offers maximum space to weight ratio and is the ideal choice for mobile journeys. A good amount of room for three occupants and their gear. Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching. Tunnel design requires only four pegs for pitching, and the simple, single opening continouse sleeve and pole tensioner system is quick to pitch and remarkably stable. A single entrance and vestibule afford easy access and plenty of storage space, but keep the weight very low. The lower portion of the rear outer wall can be rolled up for greater venting options.
