A tunnel tent for all seasons and for any conditions
I use the Hilleberg Nammatj 2 GT tent all year. The tent is roomy, build for any weather, easy to pitch, but have a pack weight on 3.7 kg. The weight actually don't matter that much in the kayak compared to the comfort of a bigger tent. This Hilleberg tent is a two person tent with a 2.8 m2 inner tent area and a 2.4 m2 vestibule area. The big vestibule area is great for gear storage and cocking if the weather is bad. The tent is pricey - around €1.000 with a footprint included, but built to last for 20 years.
The tent is part of the Hilleberg black label, which means it will handle any terrain or weather condition, from the mildest to the most demanding. The strongest, most adaptable, most comfortable all season tents. The easiest to handle of all their tents, perfect for both new users out for their first adventure and for highly experienced expedition teams.
What I also like about this tent is the ease of usage, very easy pitching - watch video - and the easy packing. I pack the tent in a waterproof compression bag size M from Exped, this reduces the pack size by a third. It's easy to change the inner tent. I use the Hilleberg mesh inner tent (€230) for summer for better ventilation or you can use it without the inner tent for full ventilation.

Since Bo Hilleberg designed his first tent back in 1973, Hilleberg has made tents. That’s in fact all they have been doing. Resisting the temptation of trying their hand at areas that lie outside their original speciality, Hilleberg has continuously strived to improve and perfect their tents.
After integrating reliability, adaptability, ease of use, durability, and comfort into the optimum combination for the intended use of a particular tent, Hilleberg then aim to make it as light as possible. While recognising that low weight is of course important in a tent, they will not make their tents low weight at the cost of sacrificing any of the other attributes completely. Low weight is not an end in itself, but rather the foundation that ties the other criteria together. This is what they call the Hilleberg principle.
