The Akto is ideal any time you need the lightest weight, all condition solo tent. It is especially good for long trips of any kind, in any season, where light weight is a very high priority. While it was not designed for extreme use in exposed and/or above tree line terrain, the Akto has proven again and again in the worst conditions, and so will stand up well to anything nature can throw at it. This is, in part, because of the Akto’s roomy configuration – it will easily accommodate you and your gear – and because of its remarkably strong Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric. Its single pole tunnel tent construction, very light (yet very strong) Kerlon 1200 and 9 mm pole make it best suited for mobile trips, where you move your camp every day. When properly pitched the Akto has been known to withstand winds over 80 mph, not to mention rain and snow loads. We have outfitted countless sheep and goat hunters with the Akto with great feedback. At just over 3 lbs, it is a perfect solution to leaving the Bivy at home and taking a 1 man tent that gives you both the vestibule space, but head room to sit up and read as well.
