The Naturehike Cloud Peak 2 is a 2-man, 3-season+ tent that is very similar to the Hilleberg Allak 2 dome tent.

It is:
  • Free-standing and stable
  • Resistant to most kinds of weather (e.g. wind, rain, snow, cold)
  • Fast and easy to pitch on many surfaces (e.g. hard dirt, rock, sand)
  • Roomy enough for 2 people - with large headroom, 2 large vestibules and 2 doors
  • Relatively lightweight

This video provides a good overview of this tent.


Specifications:
  • 3x 7001 aluminium alloy poles

Outer
  • 20D Sil-nylon ripstop rainfly (PU4000MM)
  • 20D canopy "hat" which covers the vents at the apex
  • Tieouts with guylines and line tensioners
    • 1 guy point halfway up each pole "leg"
    • Some mid-panel tieouts
  • Door storm flaps with velcro closure
  • Green and violet colour options

Inner
  • Linked but separable inner / outer tent
  • 20D Sil-nylon (PU4000MM) bathtub floor and sides, that becomes B3 polyester mesh halfway up
  • T-zip doors on each side that run the width of the inner + a top runner zipper
  • Elastic straps to pull the upper inner wall outwards, keeping it vertical and taut
  • 2 inner mesh pockets

Pros
  • Good stitching throughout, taped seams
  • Rainfly can be pitched standalone
  • Good stability vs hubbed tents where the sides can push in
  • Stands up to a lot of wind and can handle some snow
  • Partial mesh inner might provide better ventilation
  • Straight poles can be easily upgraded with heavy duty versions
  • Good option for bicycle touring

Cons
  • Mesh inner and 20D material makes this tent unsuited for freezing conditions
    • Condensation may drip from the outer into the inner
    • There is a gap at the base of the rainfly where snow could get under
  • If raining, water will fall drip from the outer door onto the inner when the door is opened
  • People over 6ft might need to sleep diagonally
  • Sil-nylon inner floor might need silicone "grip" applied to the floor to prevent mats sliding if pitched on a slope
  • 2.5kg is relatively heavy - but weight could be saved with different stakes or footprint
  • Not very large for 2 people

Differences:

The Hilleberg Allak uses more premium materials..
  • DAC Featherlite NSL poles
  • 30D "Kerlon 1200" rainfly (5000MM)
  • 30D ripstop nylon inner with a 70D "triple PU coated" nylon bathtub floor

and is a true 4-season tent..
  • Solid-walled inner with removable mesh-backed panels at the doors and overhead vents
  • Poles sleeves on the rainfly ensure it extends fully to the ground, keeping snow and drafts out

... but the Cloud Peak 2:
  • Is $800 USD cheaper
  • Is ~1kg lighter (2.5kg vs 3.3kg)
  • Has 16x included groundhog clone stakes (vs 12 aluminum V-pegs)
  • Has an included groundmat (vs an optional $80 USD accessory with the Allak)


Package Contents:
  • Fly sheet + Inner tent
  • Dome roof
  • 3x straight 7001 aluminum poles
  • 16x groundhog clone stakes + stake bag
  • Dyneema guylines
  • Groundmat + bag
