I may owe my life to this tent. My wife and I were able to set it up in 30 m/s (=65 mph) wind in a snowstorm in the Swedish Arctic this fall. I now understand why this model has been used on Swedish Polar expeditions.
Very comfortable, great venitillation, quiet in wind, low weight. I really don't understand why anybody would want to buy a heavy, complicated dome type tent when you can get a great HAND MADE model like this.

Where to Buy
The best choice for any outing in any condition where low weight is of equal importance to strength, reliability, and roominess.
The Nammatj and its extended vestibule version, the Nammatj GT, are arguably our most versatile tents. Made with our Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and employing 10 mm poles, they are equal in strength and stability to our Keron models, but because of their single entrance and vestibule, they are impressively light in weight. They are superb in all seasons for above tree-line use or for demanding, extended winter camping trips, yet are easily light enough for long trips in more moderate climes.
Both the Nammatj and the Nammatj GT models have smaller footprints then their Keron counterpart models, yet they have the same inner tent square footage, and so are excellent for limited-space sites such as narrow ridge lines or ledges. Both tents’ Tunnel Tent design is geared more for mobile adventures, where you pitch and strike your tent every day, but both can be used quite effectively for base camp-oriented trips, as well.
Minimum weight: 5 lbs 12 oz
Packed weight: 6 lbs 13 oz
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Hilleberg Nammatj 3 is the master of both high and low country, equally suited for a high altitude expedition or a weekend walk in the local hills. This robust all-season, all-arounder pitches quickly and easily, can be taken down and moved in a flash, yet is far stronger and lighter than any other tent in its class.Because of its superb weight to strength ratio and compact footprint, the Nammatj 3 has become immensely popular with extreme users, such as polar travelers looking to save weight, mountaineers doing remote routes in the highest ranges, professional guides, and military special forces teams. But these same characteristics are just as highly prized by more regular users, as well: backpackers, cycle and paddle tourers, and anyone needing maximum strength while reducing weight.
