The Abisko View is a spacious, reliable and extremely well made four-season tent for backpackers and trekkers. One of its stand-out features is the ability to be able to roll the sides of the tent up for a view of your surroundings.

Starting with how the Abisko View gets its name, the entire porch area can be rolled up and opened to create a view into your surroundings from the sleeping area. What's better though is that you can do this whilst still keeping insects out, ideal for hotter climates and tropical adventures. High positioned vents increase the breathability even further, allowing air to pass through and natural body heat to escape, while mesh sides in the inner tent allow you to pitch the Abisko View without it's weatherproof shell with the aid of the Inner Tent Pitch Kit (sold separately). If all that ventilation isn't enough as the weather is still foul, the doors can be zipped up and pegged to the inside of the tent to allow a gap at the bottom of the door. This still prevents water from getting in but also creates a nice breeze. 

The main bulk of the fabric used by the Abisko View is Fjallraven's 20D lightweight TripleRip fabric. This tear resistant and extremely light fabric will pack down to very little and weighs next to nothing, while a slightly more burly 40D fabric is used on the groundsheet and the lower flysheet; areas most prone to abrasion. A 3000mm hydrostatic head flysheet provides complete waterproofing, while the 10,000mm groundsheet increases the durability and waterproofing even further. 

Unlike the other Abisko tents in the same range, the Abisko View is slightly taller. This is simply to provide a more comfortable area for longer uses and in hotter, more uncomfortable climates. It also doesn't need to posses the same wind resistance as a 4 season tent, therefore the extra height is appreciated, especially for the taller chap. The Abisko View is also completely freestanding/self-supporting. This is ideal for areas with rough ground as unlike a tunnel tent for example, you're able to pick the Abisko View up and place it where you please to get the perfect nights sleep. No need to take the whole tent apart and try again, simply lift and move. 

The two pole design and 160kg strength guy lines provide a strong a secure structure. The guylines are also reflective, ideal in a crowded campsite with that one clumsy friend. The strength of the lines also means you won't be left with a wobbly tent. 

Internal mesh pockets allow you to store small items such as clothes, a book or a GPS, while a clothesline occupies the porch area and means you can hang wet kit up to dry while you sleep.

Care & Advice

How to Care for Your Tent

We know that purchasing a tent is a big investment, that’s why we have such a wide range of options to suit different activities, weather conditions and people, allowing you to choose the perfect one for you. Taking care of your brand new tent can be the difference between heading out for an adventure in the mountains, or having to fork out for a hefty repair bill, or even worse, another replacement tent. Below are our best tips to care for your tent.


Before even leaving the shop (or online basket) with your tent, consider a footprint. A footprint is a large water-resistant piece of material which sits underneath your tent to protect it from sharp rocks and wet ground; if this footprint gets damaged, it’s easy to replace and doesn’t cost a fortune; if your tent groundsheet gets damaged, you’ll have to spend at least twice the amount for a repair or replacement.

Don’t Abuse the Poles

The chances are your poles are made from individual aluminium sections connected by elastic; when you come to remove the poles from the tent, don’t pull them out. The best way to remove poles from their sleeve is to place the pole end against your hip and pull the fabric towards you. If you simply attempt to pull the pole out, they’ll disconnect inside, the elastic will stretch and then spring back, potentially trapping the fabric of your tent between the pole sections.

You might also be tempted to flick the poles out so that the elastic snaps them into place in a quickfire fashion. However, this is far from ideal, as if the poles don’t align when they meet, you can easily damage or weaken the end of the pole, leading to future failure which is usually on the wettest and windiest nights!

Collapse Poles From the Centre

When your poles are safely removed from the sleeve, collapse them from the centre to avoid stretching the elastic.

Stuff, Don’t Fold

You were probably told when you were in the Scouts or doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award that the best way to pack your tent away is to neatly fold it into a rectangle, the width of your storage bag, roll it around the poles and pegs and then put it all in the stuffsack. However, whilst very neat and tidy, this method of packing can create permanent creases in the fabric, weaken the waterproofing and eventually split the fabric of your tent. The best solution is to simply stuff the tent fabric into the storage bag, just like you would a sleeping bag, and pack the poles separately. Make sure to leave and end or corner at the top, so that you can easily peg it out if your next campsite is windy. The poles normally have their own stuffsack so they can be packed separately, strapped to the outside of your pack or stored inside, allowing the tent fabric to be compressed for efficient packing.

Store it Dry

Let’s assume you’ve been out with your tent and the weather has been a little on the damp side. You’ve packed your tent away when wet and now you’re back home in the warm and dry with a nice of cup of tea reflecting on your latest adventure. But what about your poor soggy tent? The worst thing you can do is to leave it packed away wet, mildew will grow and eventually rot the tent, rendering it useless. As soon as you’ve finished that cup of tea, wipe off any excess dirt and moisture with a towel, then hang the tent somewhere where it can fully air out; a nice warm spare room or a garage is perfect. Alternatively, when it stops raining, pitch the tent outside in the sunshine to dry off. Let it air for at least 24 hours and once you are sure that it is bone dry it can be packed away for storage. Note - don’t tumble dry or hang the tent over a radiator or other direct heat source.

Don’t Store in the Stuffsack

Like your sleeping bag, it’s best not to store your sleeping bag in its stuffsack unless it has to be compressed for an activity. Leave it in a large duffel bag or supermarket ‘bag for life’ in a cool, well ventilated area so it can breathe.

Avoid Tree Sap

If you’ve ever had sap on your hands, you’ll know how horrible and sticky the stuff is; it’s even harder to remove from your tent flysheet. Pitch away from trees if possible.

Don’t Leave in the Sun

The majority of tents we stock are made from nylon. Nylon is incredibly tough, lightweight and easy to care for, however it will naturally degrade if left out in harsh sunlight for extended periods of time. Try to pitch your tent in the shade or strike the tent (pack it away) during the day. Polyester tents don’t suffer from this quite as badly, but it’s still a good habit to get into.

Leave Sharp Objects Outside

Boots, cooking equipment and other sharp/abrasive objects can all be stored in the vestibule, where there is less chance of it ripping a hole in your fly or groundsheet. You may not want to pop your pet in there, but at least carry a small blanket to avoid their claws damaging your groundsheet.

    Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

    Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!

    Highly recommend. I usually go to the shop in Hereford as staff are alwasy very helpful and knowledgeable. So this was the first time I have purchased online and the service was just as good as the shop.
