Everest base camp, Scottish Winter, and Icelandic exploration… Whatever your adventure, a strong, spacious, and confidence-inspiring home away from home never goes amiss.
Made with the mountains in mind, Heksa is designed to be rock solid in extreme environments.
Heksa is inner pitch first, with a hexagonal geodesic construction to withstand fierce weather conditions. Colour-coded poles make pitching simple; the three vestibule porches can be pegged out and tensioned or docked onto a Kangri. Snow valances offer reinforcement and extra protection when the weather really sets in.
Heksa offers ample room for storing gear comfortably. In addition to three spacious vestibules, internal hanging tabs and mesh stash pockets help to organise your wares and hang torches or gloves. Multiway zips doors give various zip configurations for ventilation, whilst a snow port lets you collect snow to melt without enduring the elements.
A light and breathable inner creates an airy living space, with mesh/nylon doors giving you the option for added ventilation if you need it. The hardwearing nylon ripstop outer is bartacked at stress points to increase durability, all seams are factory taped.

The best tent I have purchased
I bought the first Heksa a couple of years ago. This tent really is bombproof. I have spent nights on the end of wild peninsulas and high camps. I love this tent.
Used this for 2 extended trips and several shorter ones in 2016. Withstood some pretty fierce winds in the far NW of Scotland in spring, so I'm as confident in this as I am in my 20+ year old Quasar.
£120 for the footprint was way too much for some trimmed synthetic so I cut my own from vinyl. Looks like AK realised this too by including it in the full price deal.
I have added some extra eyelets and elastic loops to the valances as their flapping on the first windy night kept me awake!
Considering how little space it occupies in the car there is loads of room for 2 adults 2 kids and associated hill and camp kit. Just enough room to stand up in the centre if that bothers you.
Pitch it right and you can have sunrise and sunset in different doorways.
If it lasts like Wild Country kit has then I'll be well chuffed in my retirement.
