Hilleberg the Tentmaker Jannu

An alpine tent that's light, compact, and brawny enough for storms.

Brand: Hilleberg the Tentmaker

Model: Jannu


VERDICT

Light, compact, and brawny enough for alpine storms, the Anjan is a killer choice for weight-conscious trios (or space-greedy duos) who don’t flee tough conditions. The non-freestanding tunnel tent withstood three inches of wet snow in Roosevelt National Forest thanks to a low, aerodynamic shape and four guyout points (each anchored at two points on the fly). The 14-sq.-ft. vestibule holds plenty of gear while still allowing room for scooting in and out. Bummers: The price is steep (partly due to Hilleberg’s ultradurable, ultralight Kerlon fabric), and venting is limited if weather prevents you from pitching it with the vestibule doors rolled back.

BEST FOR

Harsh-weather campers looking to save weight without giving up space or stability

The Jannu is that rarest of combinations – tremendously strong and exceptionally light.
