Hilleberg adds 4-person all-season models and redesigns key three-season models for 2017
The 4-person Kaitum 4 and Kaitum 4 GT join the Kaitum family in the all-season Red Label series, and the popular three-season Yellow Label Anjan, Anjan GT and Rogen get a facelift.
Frösön, Sweden – Hilleberg is adding the Kaitum 4 and Kaitum 4 GT models to the 2017 line to expand the company’s offerings of 4-person tents. The 2- and 3-person Kaitum and Kaitum GT models have long been popular with all-season backpackers and climbers because of their roominess and light weight. With the new Kaitum 4 and Kaitum 4 GT, adventurers needing larger, 4-person all-season tents now have more options. Both are roomy, two entrance, two vestibule tents. The Kaitum 4 has two standard sized vestibules, while the Kaitum 4 GT has one standard and one extended vestibule. Like the one entrance, one vestibule Nallo 4 and Nallo 4 GT, the Kaitum models are in Hilleberg’s Red Label line of all-season tents that are ideal for trips in all climates where low weight is a priority and where the conditions may be all but the most challenging.
Both the Kaitum 4 and Kaitum 4 GT are excellent choices for backpacking families, for couples who camp with their dogs, or for anyone looking for a roomy but remarkably lightweight 4-person tent. The Kaitum 4 has an interior area of 4.6 m2 and two 1.6 m2 vestibules. Weight is 3.9 kg. The Kaitum 4 GT’s interior is 4.8 m2, and it has one 1.6 m2 vestibule and one that is 3.4 m2. Weight is 4.6 kg.
The Anjan, Anjan GT, and Rogen were Hilleberg’s first ever three-season tents originally introduced in 2012. They are designed specifically as very lightweight tents that can handle all types of weather in warmer, snow-free conditions. The single vestibule Anjan models are well-suited to mobile adventures where a high space to weight ratio is important, and the Rogen is a remarkably lightweight, all-around, two entrance, two vestibule dome tent.
For 2017, Hilleberg is redesigning all three of these models, replacing the dual opening pole sleeves and Lock-Tip poles with single opening sleeves and standard poles for quicker pitching, especially in windy conditions. All three offer full weather protection in varying three-season conditions, as well as plenty of ventilation for warmer days and nights. Mesh inner tent doors in all three tents, and a mesh vent in the back wall of the Anjan and Anjan GT’s inner tent, along with catenary patterning at the bottom of the outer tent walls allow full-time air flow. For even more venting, in both the Anjan and Anjan GT, the rear wall of the outer tent can be fully rolled back, and the Anjan’s front vestibule can be completely rolled to the side. On the Rogen, both vestibules can be either fully or partially rolled away.
All three are excellent choices for three-season backpacking trips and summer bicycle or paddling tours. And with all of them, warm weather comfort seekers can “size up” and still keep the weight very low. Both the Rogen (2.1 kg) and the Anjan 2 (1.8 kg) make a deluxe solo tent, and the Anjan 3 (1.9 kg) is lightweight luxury for two. Even the Anjan 2 GT (2.1 kg) and Anjan 3 GT (2.3 kg) are surprisingly light – yet huge – solo shelter options for those who hold spaciousness in the highest regard.

Once again the Anjan 2 is OutdoorGearLab's backpacking tent Editors' Choice award winner! "We pick the Anjan as our go to tent if we could have only one tent for multi-day, three-season adventures. It's exceptionally durable, strong, comfortable, weather resistant, spacious and light. We especially appreciate its removable inner tent, top-notch construction materials and spectra guylines with camming adjusters. We've taken this tent car camping, backpacking through the Sierra's and India and Nepal and bicycle touring down Mexico's Baja Peninsula and it always comes out on top of the list of contenders we've tested."

In October 2014, 17 year old Satoru Shanti Yamada left his home country of Japan and set out on a bicycle journey around the world. The goal was not to break any records or to gain fame, but to travel the world and learn from every culture. His goal is to one day reach the North Pole. As he passed through northern Sweden yesterday he stopped by our office and we are happy to support him on his continued journey and make sure he has a safe place to sleep. This unselfish adventurer and modern nomad is touching people with his big smile and his amazingly happy outlook on life.
Here he is pictured with Göran Svensk, Managing Director of the Swedish office.
