rated 4 of 5 stars Replaces my bivy sack i will not give a detailed review because an excellent detailed review (by Mike Gartman) has already been posted. I just want to add some not so obvious additional points. The first time I set this tent up I had some bad tent breathing motion of the outer relative to the inner, so they would touch in strong wind gusts. When I got the tent home I realized that on the two triangular head and foot sections of the tent there are a total of 4 loops that could have additional guys… Full review

Kaitum 3 Footprint

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Expensive, but useful, addition to your valued Hilleberg tent. Provides great level of floor protection against wear and mechanical damage, introduces floor in vestibules, extends the possible pitching options. The footprint stays connected to the tent during transportation and storage, which is simply great. Drying the footprint after night Purchasing the footprint for my Hilleberg Kaitum 3 tent was a difficult decision for me. The floor of this tent is already strong, and the footprint is quite… Full review

Mesh Tent 1

rated 3 of 5 stars While marketed as a Mesh Inner Tent, this should instead be thought of as a mesh bivy. Like every Hilleberg product I’ve seen or tested, this is a very well-made piece of gear. It’s best served for those that already have the minimalist Hilleberg Tarp 5 and want to add bug protection.                                                  [click to enlarge picture] Specs: Weight: 410g/15oz                                         [click to enlarge picture]… Full review

Guy Line Runners

rated 5 of 5 stars Probably the best available guyline tensioners on market. They fit a variety of guylines (not only those supplied by Hilleberg), very easy to tighten and release with single hand, never slip off the line. Originally available under Clamcleat Line-Lok brand. These guyline adjusters came with both of my Hilleberg Kaitum 3 tents (in 3-mm size), also I received a handful with my Fjallraven Abisko Lite 3 tent (in 2-mm size). Finally I purchased two more scores in 2-mm size from original manufacturer… Full review

Kaitum 4

rated 5 of 5 stars The Hilleberg Kaitum 4 is a two-door, two-vestibule, four-person, four-season tent that comes in at a more than respectable 8 lbs 10 oz (that’s a lot of numbers) designed to maximize roominess while minimizing weight. The best part is that is manages to do both, without sacrificing weather proofing or durability. I’ve been unable to find any flaws with the Kaitum and have no doubt this tent will last through years of the hardest abuse. SETUP Even when setting up the tent alone it can be done… Full review
