    • Greetings!
      Are you able to ship Hilleberg tents to Australia?
      How much is shipping for the Saitarus tent to Australian postcode 3088 (located in Melbourne)
    • Thank you for the question. Yes, we are able to ship Hilleberg to Australia. Shipping the Saitaris to Melbourne via USPS Priority Mail Intl (our least expensive service) will probably cost around $90-100, and usually takes about 10-14 days for delivery. Shipping costs are calculated automatically at checkout. If the exact shipping charge is less than our quote you can expect a partial refund, and if shipping is more expensive you can expect our International Department to contact you with exact shipping costs and options for approval. Thanks!

Many of the guy line attachment loops on the tent are designed to be wrapped around poles or pole crossing points for maximum support. The Saitaris has plenty of room for four occupants and their gear.
Dual entrances ensure that one door can always be situated out of the wind and provide flexible entry/exit options.
One standard and one extended vestibule afford tremendous convenience, flexibility and comfort.
The Saitaris’ ventilation system functions regardless of the weather conditions, thanks to its integrated components:
Highly breathable yet water repellent inner tent fabric.
Inner tent doors have a full no-see-um mesh panel covered with an equal sized, zipper-adjustable fabric panel for greater venting and weather-protection options.
Large vents in each vestibule, placed high enough to keep air moving even if the tent is dug down into deep snow.
Vestibule vents backed with no-see-um mesh and adjustable, air-permeable snow-proof panels that are accessible from inside the vestibules.
Roof vents in the inner and the outer tents that are accessible from inside the tent.
The inner tent roof vents can be opened or closed completely, and have no-see-um mesh backed by zipper-adjustable fabric panels.
A separate vent cover ensures that the weather stays on the outside, even if the vents are fully open.
The inner and outer tents can be pitched separately.
Please note, pitching the inner tent on its own requires eight Poleholders (sold separately).
