Hilleberg Nammatj 2
Design: four-season tunnel-style
Ease of Setup: easy....but takes a bit of time to get the guy wire tensioners right
Weight: 5lb. 12oz.
Price Paid: $525
This is a very good lightweight four-season tent. I've used it about ten times now in a variety of conditions, and the only complaint that I have is that it's difficult to get a super-taut pitch. I have a Hilleberg Akto, too, and it has the same problem, so I suspect it is related to the lightweight material that Hilleberg uses on its fly. Otherwise the tent is well vented, has a lot of usable space, and holds up well to steady rain, snow, and wind.
The only other small complaint I have is that I find the tabs that hold the door/screen open are difficult to work one-handed, and the guy wire tensioners take some getting used to. But that's a pretty small issue in the grand scheme, and I would definitely buy another Hilleberg. The workmanship is excellent, as well.
Design: four season

This tent is the ultimate tent for all conditions. Rain, snow, sleet or hail. I experienced 2 of these condtions in Yellowstone this August. The tent was bomber. It rained and hailed for at least 2 hours on our tent. There was a flood though our vestible. But the bath tub floor design kept all flood waters at bay. The most amazing thing is the lack of seam sealer. Yes, no seam sealing and there are no taped seams in the whole tent. Figure it out. I can't. Petra (President of Hilleberg USA) will have to explain her father's engineering of the tent. There was condensation but it never reached the interior because the tent body clips in to the rain fly. Leaving about 4 inches of space between the fly and canopy. This makes for easy cleaning and wiping off of condesation. There are huge vents in the ends of tent which have many configurations. Lots of goodies on Hilleberg tents.
I camped for 7 days in Yellowstone in with this tent. No problems to report.
I do wish that I had more head room. But you must remember that this tent can be configured to give you more room to cook, clean and even hang your stinky socks. Great design. I have tried the 1998 Meteor Light from SD but the condensation is all over you by morning if you close the front door. You get what you pay for. Before I ordered the tent I asked too many questions of Petra and she answered my e-mail prompty. You may pay more for a Hilleberg but you get a tent you will never wear out.
If you would like to see my tent in person I live in Denver, CO, USA please email me.
Design: Four season lightweight tunnel tent
Ease of Setup: Very easy, two poles and pegs/lines
Weight: 2.7 kg
Price Paid: £330 - SEK 4500 on sale
I've only used this tent about three times, but when it comes to high quality, waterproof 4-seasons tents Hilleberg can't be matched IMHO. The tent is very light, the fabric is very very tough and every detail is amazingly thought through. The space in the tent is very good, especially for the weight. Ventilation is super and I feel at home immediately when I am inside, especially with a lamp or torch hanging from the clothes line inside.
The only consideration I would do if I were to buy the similar tent again would be to consider the Keron tent since it has vertical walls on both ends, plus one more door and storage area. But for the lightweight and space saving super tent, Hilleberg Nammatj can't be beat!! 5 stars easily!
Design: 4 season expedition hoop design
Ease of Setup: Very easy with the inner connected to the fly. When used to it one person can do it within 2 minutes
Price Paid: $540 USD
Very easy to erect with a two hoop design and a large alcove for cooking and gear. The inner dimensions are 2.2 m x 1.3 m. The inner height is 90 cm. I've used the tent in very severe conditions in the alps as well as in the swedish alpine regions. Often we've encountered harsh storms but as long as you use all guylines this tent is fully capable of withstanding very ugly weather indeed. All materials are hightech stuff such as easton e9 poles, high tennacity silicone treated ripstop nylon fly and inner fat bartackings and so on. In conclusion a very dependeble 4 season shelter.
