Simple, ultralight, and completely freestanding, the Allak is an exceptional all-arounder. Our goal with the Allak was to create a completely freestanding, all season, yet very light dome tent – in other words, an ultralight Staika. The Allak uses the same integrated vestibule design as the Staika, as well as a similar 3 pole structure, but it employs ultralight materials for weight savings. The result is a two door, two vestibule tent that weighs just 3.0 kg/6 lbs 10 oz. The Allak’s three poles cross in three places, so it is sturdy enough for all season use in both exposed and/or above tree line terrain as well as protected conditions. But because of its Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9 mm poles, it is not as stout as its Kerlon 1800 cousin, the Staika. Its exceptionally compact footprint and free standing design are ideal for tough pitching conditions, such as rocky ground and sand, and it is easily light enough for mobile journeys, where you move your camp every day. At the same time, its three pole dome structure is strong enough for some base camp use, where you leave your tent unattended, especially in moderate conditions.
Over its two year development, the Allak became the tent of choice for anyone wanting the convenience of a totally free standing design in an ultralight package. Anytime our testers were uncertain about what kind of terrain or conditions they might experience on a trip, they grabbed an Allak. Paddlers love its ability to be pitched nearly anywhere, while backpackers are drawn to its roomy stability and wonderfully light weight. Mountaineers appreciate both the Allak’s free standing design and its roominess, as well as its ability to deal with snow loading. And taller adventurers will be pleasantly surprised at its remarkable length.
