Question Hilleberg tents, anyone?

Hi all,

I am looking for a tent and am curious about how many folks here actually use Hilleberg tents. I am almost certain that I want a four-season tent (though I am a slight bit worried about breathability in the summer. That said, I am not looking to camp out on 90 degree days in the highpeaks anyway...) so as to allow me to enjoy being out in the three-seasons while also having the option to try out winter camping next year and the years to come. As I've been doing my research for a four-season, weatherproof tent that can withstand the terror of a bad storm and/or high winds, I almost always come across people recommending Hilleberg tents as THE tent. I am curious though, how many of you actually own a Hilleberg tent?

Currently, I am looking at the Hilleberg Jannu and haven't really found an equivalent tent that doesn't have issues with set-up, durability or other important factors. Therefore, I am strongly considering just biting the bullet and picking one up. But, before I do so, I'd love to hear opinions from more experiences campers!

FYI: Some personal background: I plan to be camping in the Cats, Daks and Whites highpeaks in the Spring, Summer and Fall months. Once I get some more money for the rest of my winter gear, I also hope to enjoy what winter has to offer in these regions! I know that winds and storms can get bad around here so I need something that can hold up!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

We have used a Hilleberg Nallo for fall and winter camping. Lots of space - great if you are tall! The only downside is that it requires a large level area for pitching as it has quite a footprint.

Re: Hilleberg tents

I use an Unna, Hilleberg's very spacious one person tent, and like it a lot.
Hilleberg offers an accessory mesh inner tent, which I use for warm weather.
The mesh inner tent is offered for other models, including the Nallo.

The pole sleeves in Hilleberg tents are designed to accommodate a second
set of poles to further strengthen the tent in seriously heavy wind.
