Nature Calls Backpacking

Hilleberg Kaitum 2GT, 2 Person, 4 Season Tent - My Favorite Hilleberg?

As someone who gets to do set up videos of the Hilleberg tents I am very often asked, which tent should I get.  The problem is they are all great and each tent addresses the outdoors in a different way, as every tent owner is different.  I also ask myself if I were to only get one Hilleberg tent, one that represents the line well, one that I could take backpacking, be comfortable buy well protected, and has a really great overall design, I am close to say it is the Kaitum 2 GT.  

It is a tunnel, has entrances and both ends, has multiple entrances at the huge vestibule end, straight wall at the foot, tons of ventilation. And it is a GT model. Would be great for hunting, cycling, motorcycling, camping, backpacking where you could set up a tent that long yes.  And the covered porch feature is genius.  I live in the Pacific Northwest, so rain is.  The idea of being able to be in a tent in the rain and still have a wonderful view would be awesome.  But it represents the Hilleberg tent so beautifully over all.

The Kaitum 2 GT is a remarkable, two door/two vestibule tent offering maximum usable space, outstanding comfort, and excellent strength in a lightweight package.

BECAUSE OF ITS TWO ENTRANCE/TWO VESTIBULE configuration, its lightweight yet strong materials and its construction, the Kaitum 2 GT provides a stunning balance of super light weight, overall comfort and high strength. Backpackers gravitate toward the Kaitum 2 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 2 GT because of its all-season strength as well as its low weight. And taller users will find the Kaitum 2 GT’s plentiful floor space, vertical entrances, and vertical walls a roomy pleasure. These users opt for the Kaitum 2 GT over the Kaitum 2 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.

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 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 two occupants and their gear.
Linked but separable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.
Tunnel design requires only four pegs for pitching, and the simple, single opening continuous 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 holders (see accessories).
