- Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and 10 mm poles make for an exceptionally strong and stable tent.
- All season construction: outer tent walls extend to the ground and mesh areas are backed with adjustable fabric panels.
- Dome construction with multiple pole crossing points provide outstanding snow-load handling capability.
- Plenty of room for two occupants and their gear.
- Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
- Fully free standing dome design requires no pegs for pitching, and the straightforward short sleeve and clip pole system make for quick, easy set up.
- Dual entrances and vestibules ensure that one door can always be situated out of the wind and provide flexible entry/exit and storage options.
- The outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires optional pole holderes

The Hilleberg Staika is pictured at left with a 5'11" model. The Staika is an exoskeleton tent that is set up with the poles in the outer tent (fly).The inner tent is attached to the fly on the inside. Tent is pictured at left in this full set-up, with the inner tent and fly set up as one unit.
The inner tent can be set up separately to be used in warmer conditions. To set up the inner tent separately, you need six pole holders (sold separately or as a special kit above for the Staika) and two guy lines to keep the inner tent erect. The poles are run through the elastic suspension loops that usually attach the inner tent to the outer tent.
