Our newest video, “Important tip on how to peg your Hilleberg Anjan or Helags tent,” goes into detail on how to best pitch the Helags and Anjan tents to keep them happy and healthy.
Because of their structure, these models do not have door bands in their vestibules. The curved patterning on their outer tent walls would cause the door bands to lift off the ground and be a trip hazard.
For all our tents, we recommend that you peg down all the peg loops around the entire perimeter of the tent in most conditions. For the Anjan and Helags models specifically, regardless of whether you peg the other loops, it is important that you always at least peg down the peg loop by the pole next to the vestibule door, and that you pull this peg point a little bit forward.
Pitching your Anjan and Helags models this way prevents the pole from shifting when you open the vestibule door, which would put a lot of stress on the zipper and the surrounding fabric. Avoiding unnecessary strain will extend the lifetime of both your zipper and your tent – watch the video to see how it’s done!
