Roomy, light, and comfortable, the new Helags models are outstanding choices for those looking for comfort and low weight for their adventures during the snow-free times of the year. Their two vestibule configuration results in an inner tent with vertical ends, near vertical sidewalls, and full sitting height throughout the tent. Curved patterning on the bottom of the outer tent walls provides full-time ventilation without compromising protection from rain, and all-mesh inner tent doors promote impressive air flow. For even more venting (and for great views), both vestibule doors can be rolled away completely. Patterned after the Red Label Kaitum, the Helags is an excellent "all-rounder." It excels at mobile journeys, where you pitch your tent and take it down frequently, and it is equally at home on a variety of adventures. Backpackers, paddlers and bicycle tourers will all love its lightweight roominess, and since the Helags 3 weighs just 200 g (7 oz) more than the Helags 2, sizing up is an easy choice for those wanting even more comfort.

“Helags” is a mountain in northwest Härjedalen, Sweden, close to the border of Jämtland and Norway.

All product features and measurement values, including tent weight and pole length, may vary somewhat from what is shown in our catalog, other printed items and on our website. Such differences can occur because of alterations in the design and production process and/or natural variations in the materials.

While we originally built our reputation on all-season tents, we have always known that there were many users who wanted a lighter weight tent, and who didn’t need all-season strength and comfort. But we have never subscribed to the traditional concept of “3 season tents,” which always seemed to equate to “summer tents.” In part, the problem is that those three seasons – spring, summer, and fall – are very different in, say, northern Sweden, than they are in Australia.

In 2010, we began the project that would become our Yellow Label tents, which we introduced in 2012. Rather than creating the typical “3-season tents,” however, we set out to build lighter weight tents that would work well in more protected terrain but in all types of weather during the warmer, snow-free months of the year, regardless of geographic locale.

With the goal of maximizing light weight without sacrificing too much strength, we experimented with a variety of solutions. Initially, we put the poles on the inner tent, but still with a linked outer tent. After a number of such test tents literally flattened during wind testing, we adopted our proven system of linked but separable inner and outer tents, with the poles on the outer. This solution performed so much better, that we knew it was the ideal choice for these tents.

During this process, we also discovered that the weight savings from using smaller than 9 mm diameter poles – the same type of poles found in our Red Label, all-season tents – was slight, while the loss of strength was substantial. So, again, we stayed with the proven solution – 9 mm DAC NSL poles.

We did use lighter weight fabrics, in both inner and outer tents. For the outer tent, we developed Kerlon 1000. We knew that warmer weather, snow-free use does not place the same stress on a tent that true, all-season use does, but we still needed to maintain enough strength for heavy rains and windy conditions. Kerlon 1000 boasts a substantial 8 kg/17.6 lb tear strength.

Another way we saved weight without compromising strength was to integrate the venting directly into the construction. Rather than adding vents, which would have added weight, we built in full time venting, either through a space between the outer tent and the ground in the Anaris, Anjan, Anjan GT, Helags, Niak and Rogen models, or through incorporating protected mesh panels into the outer tent, as found in the Enan.

The result is a group of tents that are ideal for users who go out below tree line and in more protected terrain in the snow-free months of the year, and who demand light weight, but not at the expense of strength enough for the conditions they might encounter.

  • Kerlon 1000 outer tent fabric and 9mm poles make for a supremely lightweight tent that is still quite strong.
  • 3 season design: ventilation is built into the construction, and the inner tent mesh areas have no backing fabric panels.
  • Tunnel construction offers maximum space to weight ratio and is the ideal choice for mobile journeys.
  • A good amount of room for two occupants and their gear.
  • Linked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
  • Tunnel design requires only four pegs for pitching, and the simple, single-opening, continuous sleeve and pole tensioner pole system is quick to pitch and remarkably stable.
  • Dual entrances and vestibules ensure that one door can always be situated out of the wind and provide flexible entry/exit and storage options.
  • An optional footprint covers only the inner tent area and not the vestibule. It connects directly to the tent, and can be left attached during pitching.
  • The inner tent can be replaced with a Mesh Inner tent (sold separately; see accessories).
  • The outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires optional pole holderes (see accessories).

While every Hilleberg tent comes with all the pegs, lines and poles you need, you may, from time to time, need replacements. You may also want to accessorize for more flexibility on your adventures: spare line runners, guy line, and pole holders let you customize your shelter to your needs; special circumstances may dictate special use pegs or additional poles for stability; or you may simply want different sorts of pegs. Footprints can extend the life of your tent and cut down on condensation in the vestibules, and a hank of our strong, light guy line cord is always useful.

Kaitum 3/Helags 3 Mesh Inner Tent

$320

The mesh inner can also be used in place of the standard inner tent: simply disconnect the standard inner tent and button in the appropriate Mesh Inner Tent. While this greatly increases ventilation, the mesh inner tents weigh about the same as the corresponding standard inner tents, so there is not a significant weight savings.
Used alone, The mesh inner is a simple, highly versatile option for use in dry, warm conditions. Its full mesh walls provide not only maximum airiness and protection from flying and crawling insects, but also 360° views. When used in combination with a Tarp, the mesh inner retains all of its venting and viewing advantages while the Tarp provides protection from rain or shade from the sun.
Includes the pole holder kit to pitch the inner tent or mesh inner on its own.
Weight: 1.1 kg/2 lbs 7 oz
Note: the mesh inner tents weigh about the same as the corresponding standard inner tents, so there is not a significant weight savings.

Y-Peg UL

$40

Every new tent includes enough pegs to pitch it, but a spare peg or two can save you the frustration of losing one in the middle of a long trip. Our lightest peg, the new, hardened aluminum Y-Peg UL has a “Y” cross-section similar to our Y-Peg, but in a smaller (and lighter) package. While not quite as robust as the larger Y-Peg, it offers a great balance of hard ground penetration and soft ground holding power. Its gold anodizing makes it highly visible, and the attached string loop makes it easier to pull it from the ground. • 15 cm/5.9" • 9.6 g/0.34 oz • Set of 10 pegs •
