Hilleberg Kaitum 4 GT Size Guide

The Hilleberg Kaitum is the lighter weight brother of the iconic Keron tents. Because of the configuration consisting of two doors and two vestibules, its lightweight yet strong materials and its construction, the Kaitum 4 GT provides a stunning balance of super light weight, overall comfort and high strength.

This 4-person version of Kaitum is new for 2017, and is perfect for backpacking families, couples who camp with their dogs, or anyone looking for a roomy but remarkably lightweight 4-person tent. The Hilleberg GT models feature extended vestibules which increase space and flexibility, with very little weight penalty. The larger vestibule offers considerably more space for both gear storage and sorting as well as food preparation. The extended Kaitum GT vestibule also has two entrances, one on the side and one up front, on the opposite side, offering both more entry as well as exit options. And by rolling back the front section of the extended vestibule, you create a full tent-width “covered porch” deep enough to keep all but the worst weather away from the inner tent door.

Hilleberg Label - Red

The Hilleberg Red label tents are true four season tents. The difference from the Black label tents is that in the production of these tents, a higher importance is placed on making the tents weigh less while still being dependable in all situations. In other words, they are designed to be lighter than, and nearly as adaptable as, the Black label tents.

To achieve lower weight some of the Red label tents have different length poles which makes the tent lighter, but not quite as easy to put up as the Black label and Red labels tents that have uniform length poles. The outer material, zips, and pegs are also lighter weight than in the Black label tents.

These tents are ideal for use all year round in less exposed mountain terrain, forest areas and similar. Since they can still handle storm conditions to a certain extent, some experienced users still take them on demanding expeditions – knowing that there is a trade-off between strength and low weight.
