|Other Features||Both Keron and Keron GT will serve you admirably on any backcountry adventure, whether that means a ramble in the mountains and forests, an extended winter expedition, a coastal jaunt, or a weekend of relaxed camping in your local recreation area.
Our Tunnel design, with its single-opening, continuous pole sleeve construction and linked inner and outer tents makes the Keron and Keron GT easy and simple to set up.
Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and 10 mm poles make for an exceptionally stable tent.
Pitching requires only four pegs, yet additional peg and guy line points – 14 on the Keron and 18 on the Keron GT – provide a myriad of options for increasing stability. Remarkably strong Spectra guy lines are attached at two points to all pole sleeves on both sides of the tent, and have two line runners each to ensure optimal tension. Each vent also has a guy line with a line runner.
Both Keron and Keron GT have remarkably spacious interiors, thanks to full sitting height throughout the entire inner tent, the two vertical inner tent entrances, and the tunnel design itself, which creates near-vertical side walls.
Two entrances and two vestibules afford tremendous convenience, flexibility and comfort. For instance, one vestibule can be designated for gear stowage, while the other can be used for food preparation or gear sorting.
One entrance of the tent can always be situated out of the wind.
The entrance on the GT’s extended vestibule boasts a full no-see-um mesh door (which can be zipped off completely), and a multi-slider zipper door that can be opened from the top, side, or bottom.
Both the Keron and Keron GT’s ventilation work regardless of weather conditions, since both the inner tent fabric is highly breathable yet water repellent, and since each end has a large vent, placed high enough to keep air moving even if the tent is dug down into deep snow.
The vents, backed with no-see-um mesh, have adjustable snow-proof panels which are accessible from inside the vestibules. In addition, both inner tent doors have full no-see-um mesh panels covered with equal sized, zipper-adjustable fabric panels for maximum venting and weather-protection options.
Please note, pitching the inner tent on its own requires six Poleholders (sold separately).
A note on colors: Fabric dyes have natural variations, so the actual tent color may look slightly different from what is pictured.
- The perfect tent
- I have been using Salewa, Fjall Raven, North Face and Sierra Design tents over the past 30 years. Since a year we have now the Hilleberg and I must admit it is the best tent we ever had. We were very pleased with the Salewa and Sierra Design too, but the Hilleberg beats all. We use the tents in southern Patagonia all year around and conditions are often extreme.
