    I think most would agree that Hilleberg has some great options.

    Thanks. Do you recommend one particular model? I am looking for a three person tent. Do you recommend a one or two entance tent? I was looking at either the Nallo 3 or Kaitum 3.

    I am going with the Kaitum 3. I like the idea of two entrances and two vestibules so my partner and I can sleep head to foot (more room). I don't know if it better or worse than the Nallo 3 for your application, but I'll let you know if I don't like the Kaitum 3 around the first of october!

    The Hilleberg Allak is a very killer product. It is a touch heavier than some but it is completely bullet proof. Two person, four season with double vestibules. Check it out at, www.hilleberg.com.

    Thanks for the info. I'll take a close look at the Allak. I wonder if it is big enough for two 6' plus guys.

    For a 4 season tent. Don't think so. The rain fly, hell even the shell of the tent is to thin. I would use this the BA Fly Creek for only early season CA A season hunts, where there might be only a slight chance of rain, let alone snow, hail, or wind. The Heliberg is the best option. Bomb proof, but somewhat heavier.

    Thanks for all the info. I'm leaning toward the Nallo 3 based on weight alone.Five pounds five ounces is hard to beat.

    The line from Hilleberg is by far the best 4 season tents that you can buy. I personally like the Nallo 2 GT. I really like the GT because you get so much vestible area. I feel that that is huge when you can keep your rifle/pack inside the tent. It is also big enough to cook in if you are in a big storm.I work for a online company called highcalibergear.com and we carry the full line of Hilleberg tents. We will special order any of there tents for you as well.
