The light weight yet ample space of the Kaitum GT makes it a great choice for ski touring.

Kaitum 3 GT $1095

Because of its two entrance/two vestibule configuration, its lightweight yet strong materials and its construction, the Kaitum 3 GT provides a stunning balance of super light weight, overall comfort and high strength. Backpackers gravitate toward the Kaitum 3 GT’s light weight and remarkable roominess, as do paddle and bicycle tourers, who also appreciate its small packed size. Hunters, winter campers, ski tourers, and climbers favor the Kaitum 3 GT because of its all-season strength as well as its low weight. And taller users will find the Kaitum 3 GT’s plentiful floor space, vertical entrances, and vertical walls a roomy pleasure. These users opt for the Kaitum 3 GT over the Kaitum 3 when their trips demand the increased space and flexibility the extended GT vestibule affords: with very little weight penalty, the larger vestibule offers considerably more space for both gear storage/sorting and food preparation. The extended GT vestibule also has two entrances, one on the side and one up front, on the opposite side, offering both more entry/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.

“Kaitum” is named after a beautiful lake and river in northern Sweden.

  • Kerlon 1200 outer tent fabric and 9mm poles make for a very lightweight yet supremely stable tent.
  • All season construction: outer tent walls extend to he ground and mesh areas are backed with adjustable fabric panels.
  • Tunnel construction offers maximum space to weight ratio and is the ideal choice for mobile journeys.
  • Plenty of room for three 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 continouse sleeve and pole tensioner 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 the entire area of the outer tent, including the vestibules. It connects directly to the tent, and can be left attached during pitching.
  • The outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires optional pole holderes (see accessories).

Hilleberg Kaitum + Kaitum GT - Pitching instruction

This is the official pitching instruction for Hilleberg Kaitum. This film is a supplement to the instruction booklet. We recommend that you both read the booklet carfully as well as practice handling the tent before your first backcountry trip. Thank you for choosing a Hilleberg tent and enjoy your next adventure! For more information about Hilleberg and our products, please visit our website at http://www.hilleberg.com

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.

V-Pegs

V-Peg

V-Peg

$30

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. Very light yet very strong, our V-Peg is made from hardened aluminum, and it has specifically engineered thick yet light spine and sides to prevent bending. Its "V" cross section provides a fine balance of penetration in hard ground and holding capability in looser soil. Anodized a highly visible gold, the V-peg also has an integrated string loop for easy removal from the ground.

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow and Sand Pegs

$75

Lightweight, tough and remarkably versatile, our Snow & Sand pegs are unique. After finding most so-called snow pegs to be too soft – they would bend in any but the fluffiest snow – we developed our own. Made from hardened aluminum, our Snow Pegs are built to withstand both very hard usage, including the inevitable contact with shovels, crampons and other winter gear, and very hard snow. At the same time, they are remarkably lightweight. The integrated line and hook gives you the flexibility either to bury the peg sideways in snow or sand, Deadman style, or to use it in a traditional, upright fashion. • 31 cm x 3 cm/12.2" x 1.2" • 50 g/1.8 oz • Set of 6 pegs and XP carrying bag •

Extra Poles

9 mm Pole Section

$6

Your tent comes with poles, an extra repair section and aluminum repair sleeve, but spare poles can come in handy, both for repairs and for "double poling," which gives extra strength and stability.

Tent and Accessory Bags

While our various stuff bags are sized for our poles, pegs, and, of course, our tents, they are also ideal for organizing your gear. Our peg bag is great for holding toiletries or other small essentials, and our larger bags, although sized for our tents, are ideal for your spare clothes, cooking gear, food or the like.

Peg bags are available only in black, and in our sturdiest XP fabric. Standard pole bags come in green or red, while the burlier XP pole bag is only available in black. Standard and XP tent bags in all sizes come in green, red and sand, come in five sizes, and have a round, sewn-in bottom. The XP versions have a sewn-in handle, as well.

Standard bags are included with the Kaitum 3 GT.
