A free standing 3-Season tent that is is wonderfully suited for lightweight gear
The Hilleberg Rogen is an excellent tent for any trip in any 3 season weather condition. Dome construction affords stability and strength for use in exposed conditions, and makes the Rogen a great choice for tough pitching situations. It is quick and easy to pitch, has plenty of room for two plus their gear, boasts two doors and two vestibules, and yet it weighs about the same as some solo tents.
The ingenious pole system employs two long, crossing poles for the basic shape and a shorter pole in the roof, which both increases stability and provides head room in the vestibules. In keeping with the Rogen’s 3 season design, its outer tent does not go all the way to the ground, so air flow is constant, even in wet weather. And in fi ne weather, rolling away the vestibules exposes the near-full mesh inner tent doors for superb cross venting. Paddlers, summer mountain scramblers, backpackers, bicycle tourers – all will find the Rogen’s remarkable spaciousness, two door comfort, and self-supporting construction appealing.

The outer tent’s fabric is crucial to keeping the elements out. Perhaps the most obvious, specific difference lies in the tear strengths of the outer tents. Kerlon 1000 has a minimum tear strength of 10kg. And it has a high UV resistance. The abrasion resistance is high as well. Many of the tent fabrics on the market – including those labeled “expedition grade” – have tear strengths of 2 kg/4.4 lbs to 3 kg/6.6 lbs. Thus, Kerlon 1000 is three to five times stronger than most other tent materials and amazingly light in weight 40g/m².
