Nammatj 3
Our Black Label tents are designed not only to offer full adaptability to and ease of handling in both fine and foul conditions, but also to maximize durability. Here a 30 year old Nammatj stands strong against some truly ugly conditions. A Nammatj on the edge of a snowy forest in British Columbia, Canada. In the early 1990‘s, Günter Wamser started spending his summers traveling north, by horse, from Tierra del Fuego in South America. In 2013, he reached Alaska, USA. Throughout his journey, he used Keron and Nammatj models. Seen here is his red Nammatj in Banff National Park, Canada.

Nammatj models are quite versatile, thanks to a compact footprint, high strength, and remarkably light weight. Here a Nammatj affords a prime viewing spot for the Northern Lights in Iceland.

Or use the outer tent alone as a group gathering spot in camp or as an impromptu lunch shelter.

The Nammatj 3 is the master of both high and low country, equally suited for a high altitude expedition or a weekend walk in the local hills. This robust all-season, all-arounder pitches quickly and easily, can be taken down and moved in a flash, yet is far stronger and lighter than any other tent in its class.

Because of its superb weight to strength ratio and compact footprint, the Nammatj 3 has become immensely popular with extreme users, such as polar travelers looking to save weight, mountaineers doing remote routes in the highest ranges, professional guides, and military special forces teams. But these same characteristics are just as highly prized by more “regular” users, as well: backpackers, cycle and paddle tourers, and anyone needing maximum strength while reducing weight.

“Nammatj” is the Sami word for a lone mountain standing at the head of a valley.

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.

The Nammatj models have long been the quiet workhorses in the Hilleberg line. But the story of the Nammatj really begins with the Keron. Introduced in both 3- and 4-person versions in 1981, the two-vestibule Keron featured both the linked but separable inner and outer tents and the very strong silicone-coated outer tent fabric that are still the fundamental elements of all our tents. “The Keron models were very popular,” says Bo, “but we wanted to build a tent that was just as strong, but was lighter, and was made for two people.” Capitalizing on the Keron’s functionality, Bo used its architecture as a starting point, and came up with a single entrance “version,” which was released as the original Nammatj in 1983.

Looking at the Keron and Nammatj side by side, one might think that the development process would have been simple: merely “cut off” one vestibule from the Keron and make it a bit narrower, and, voila, the Nammatj. “It does seem like it would be easy,” laughs Bo, “but it was not. We had to develop the optimal space between the poles, figure out the angle of the back inner tent wall, and then make sure that the gap between the inner and outer tents at that sloping rear wall stayed correct. That original Nammatj was a completely new tent.

The Nammatj’s compact footprint and simplicity made it popular with everyone from mountaineers to ski tourers to backpackers – and with Bo himself. “I used the Nammatj often,” he says. “When we had a dog, I would take the Nammatj when he and I would go backpacking, and he slept inside.” It also became – as the Nammatj 2 is today – an excellent choice for solo trips in demanding, exposed conditions. Even now, says Bo, “if I go on longer, harder ski tours in the winter, for 2 people, I will take a Keron 3. But when I go on my own, I often take a Nammatj 2, because it is roomy, very strong and stable, and quite light. It’s fantastic!”

In 1988, we introduced our extended vestibule concept on both the Keron 3 and 4 and the Nammatj. We also added an external vent to the back wall of the Nammatj and Nammatj GT. In 1995, we christened the Nammatj the Nammatj 2, and introduced the 3-person Nammatj 3 and Nammatj 3 GT. Both were instant hits. 1997 saw improved ventilation with the addition of a triangular mesh panel vent on the inner tent that could be covered with an adjustable fabric panel. In 2006, we redesigned the GT vestibule on both Keron and Nammatj GT models with a more functional entrance configuration and a removable mesh door.

The Nammatj and Nammatj GT models have always been stalwart choices for any adventure, thanks to their unique blend of robust performance, generous space and light weight. They excel for very long trips in the most demanding conditions, are light enough for extended mobile adventures in any terrain or condition, yet are also strong enough for some base camp use. Both have been enthusiastically embraced by mountaineers climbing in Alaska (especially on Denali), in the Alps, in the Himalayas, and in Patagonia. Both are often chosen by military units, and both, along with the Keron and Keron GT models, have become the de facto standard for polar adventures. “There are some in the company who believe the Nammatj models are our most versatile tents,” says Bo. “Big mountain climbers and arctic travelers use them, but they are also a great choice for year-round backpacking, for ski touring, or for paddling trips.” Indeed, their simplicity and strength make them perfect for anyone who wants a tent with excellent comfort and ventilation to take climbing, backpacking, cycle and paddle touring, even car camping – or on a polar expedition, for that matter – and never have to worry about either the weight, the roominess, or the strength.

  • Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and 10 mm poles make for an exceptionally strong and stable tent.
  • All season construction: outer tent walls extend to the 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.
  • A single entrance and vestibule afford easy access and plenty of storage space, but keep the weight very low.
  • 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 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).

Hilleberg Nammatj - Pitching instruction

This is the official pitching instruction for Hilleberg Nammatj. This film is a supplement to the instruction booklet. We recommend that you both read the booklet carefully 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.

Nammatj 3 Mesh Inner Tent


Nammatj 3 Mesh Inner Tent

Nammatj 3 Mesh Inner Tent

$230

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.

Nammatj 3 Footprint

Nammatj 3 Footprint

This tough ground sheet helps to protect your tent’s floor from abrasion and to keep ground moisture from rising in the vestibule. This footprint covers the full area of the Nammatj 3 outer tent. • Weight: 510 g/18 oz

Pole Holders for Inner Tent

Pole holders - 4 pcs.

$15

Extra pole holders are needed when you want to pitch the inner tent by itself. Link these to the corners of the inner, and place the ends of the poles into them. 4 pole holders, two for each pole, are needed to pitch the Nammatj 3 inner tent on its own.

Y-Pegs

Y-Peg

Y-Peg

$45

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 Y-Peg is exceptionally strong yet quite lightweight, and its "Y" profile gives both excellent penetration in hard ground and plenty of surface area for reliable hold in softer conditions. Both because of its shape and its durable, hardened aluminum body, the sturdy Y-Peg can be hammered into hard ground. Its bright, gold anodized color makes it easy to see, and an attached string loop provides for easy removal. • 18 cm/7.1" • 16 g/0.6 oz • Set of 10 pegs •

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow & Sand Pegs

Snow and Sand Pegs

$85

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

328 cm x 10 mm

$48

10 mm Pole Section

$9

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.

An XP tent bag is included with the Nammatj 3.
