Hilleberg – a heritage justified
Hilleberg make tents. Since 1973 they’ve focussed on creating a range of supremely functional and hardwearing shelters that’re built to provide a home away from home in some the of the world’s harshest conditions. Their tents and backcountry shelters are designed around the simple, ingenious, philosophy – ‘define the capabilities of the tent’ then combine the ‘most advantageous balance of six essential principles’. This makes Hilleberg’s range easily navigable.
Reliability, adaptability, ease of use, durability, comfort and low weight
Hilleberg’s tent and shelter construction is characterised by their outstanding choice of the highest quality materials and porducytion methods. Their exclusive Kerlon fabric has a tear-strength of up to 6-times that of ordinary tent fabrics without adding unnecessary weight. Ultralight and durable DAC Featherlite NSL Poles are found on most models – offering lightweight reliability year-round.
Black, Red and Yellow Label
Hilleberg the Tentmaker range their products for easy identification. Their Black Label range is designed for the most extreme conditions but cover a wide variety of uses. These tents might weigh a bit more than others, but you’ll be able to rely on their protection in the most adverse conditions. The Red Label range will suit all but the most extreme camping conditions. These tents ‘prioritise light weight over absolute strength, adaptability and overall comfort’. That said, they’re still supremely functional and comfy too. The Yellow Label tents are designed for ultralight travel in snow-free conditions but Hilleberg’s reliable Kerlon 1000 is still rated at a minimum of 8kg tear strength.
