Nammatj 2 GT

The Nammatj 2 GT is the best choice for any two person outing in any condition where low weight is of equal importance to strength, reliability, and roominess.

The Nammatj 2 GT is the best choice for any two person outing in any condition where low weight is of equal importance to strength, reliability, and roominess.

 \n<p class="copy"><span class="leadtext">THE NAMMATJ AND NAMMATJ GT</span> are the masters of both high and low country, equally suited for a high altitude expedition or a weekend walk in the local hills. These robust all-season, all-arounders pitch quickly and easily, can be taken down and moved in a flash, yet are far stronger and lighter than any other tent in their class.</p>

 \n<p class="copy indent end">Because of their superb strength to weight ratio and compact footprints, both the Nammatj and Nammatj GT have become immensely popular with extreme users, such as polar travelers looking to save weight, mountaineers doing remote routes in the highest ranges, professional guides, and military special forces teams. But these same characteristics are just as highly prized by more “regular” users, as well: backpackers, cycle and paddle tourers, and anyone needing maximum strength while reducing weight. This is a black label tent.</p>

 \n<i>“Nammatj” is the Sami word for a lone mountain standing at the head of a valley.</i>

 \n<p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Features</strong></p>

 \n<p style="text-align: center;">Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and 10 mm poles make for an exceptionally strong and stable tent.

 \nAll season construction: outer tent walls extend to the ground and mesh areas are backed with adjustable fabric panels.

 \nTunnel construction offers maximum space to weight ratio and is the ideal choice for mobile journeys.

 \nPlenty of room for two occupants and their gear.

 \nLinked but seperable inner and outer tent for simultaneous pitching.

 \nTunnel design requires only four pegs for pitching, and the simple, single opening continouse sleeve and pole tensioner system is quick to pitch and remarkably stable.

 \nA single entrance and extended vestibule afford easy access and maximum storage space, but keep the weight very low.

 \nAn 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.

 \nThe inner tent can be replaced with a Mesh Inner tent (sold separately; see accessories).

 \nThe outer and inner tents can be used separately. Pitching the inner tent alone requires optional pole holderes (see accessories).</p>


 \n<p style="text-align: center;"><strong>The story of the Nammatj</strong></p>

 \n<p class="copy"><span class="leadtext">THE NAMMATJ MODELS</span> have long been the quiet workhorses in the Hilleberg line. But the story of the Nammatj really begins with the Keron. Introduced in both 3- and 4-person versions in 1981, the two-vestibule Keron featured both the linked but separable inner and outer tents and the very strong silicone-coated outer tent fabric that are still the fundamental elements of all our tents. “The Keron models were very popular,” says Bo, “but we wanted to build a tent that was just as strong, but was lighter, and was made for two people.” Capitalizing on the Keron’s functionality, Bo used its architecture as a starting point, and came up with a single entrance “version,” which was released as the original Nammatj in 1983.</p>

 \n<p class="copy indent">Looking at the Keron and Nammatj side by side, one might think that the development process would have been simple: merely “cut off” one vestibule from the Keron and make it a bit narrower, and, voila, the Nammatj. “It does seem like it would be easy,” laughs Bo, “but it was not. We had to develop the optimal space between the poles, figure out the angle of the back inner tent wall, and then make sure that the gap between the inner and outer tents at that sloping rear wall stayed correct. That original Nammatj was a completely new tent.</p>

 \n<p class="copy indent">The Nammatj’s compact footprint and simplicity made it popular with everyone from mountaineers to ski tourers to backpackers – and with Bo himself. “I used the Nammatj often,” he says. “When we had a dog, I would take the Nammatj when he and I would go backpacking, and he slept inside.” It also became – as the Nammatj 2 is today – an excellent choice for solo trips in demanding, exposed conditions. Even now, says Bo, “if I go on longer, harder ski tours in the winter, for 2 people, I will take a Keron 3. But when I go on my own, I often take a Nammatj 2, because it is roomy, very strong and stable, and quite light. It’s fantastic!”</p>

 \n<p class="copy indent">In 1988, we introduced our extended vestibule concept on both the Keron 3 and 4 and the Nammatj. We also added an external vent to the back wall of the Nammatj and Nammatj GT. In 1995, we christened the Nammatj the Nammatj 2, and introduced the 3-person Nammatj 3 and Nammatj 3 GT. Both were instant hits. 1997 saw improved ventilation with the addition of a triangular mesh panel vent on the inner tent that could be covered with an adjustable fabric panel. In 2006, we redesigned the GT vestibule on both Keron and Nammatj GT models with a more functional entrance configuration and a removable mesh door.</p>

 \n<p class="copy indent">The Nammatj and Nammatj GT models have always been stalwart choices for any adventure, thanks to their unique blend of robust performance, generous space and light weight. They excel for very long trips in the most demanding conditions, are light enough for extended mobile adventures in any terrain or condition, yet are also strong enough for some base camp use. Both have been enthusiastically embraced by mountaineers climbing in Alaska (especially on Denali), in the Alps, in the Himalayas, and in Patagonia. Both are often chosen by military units, and both, along with the Keron and Keron GT models, have become the de facto standard for polar adventures. “There are some in the company who believe the Nammatj models are our most versatile tents,” says Bo. “Big mountain climbers and arctic travelers use them, but they are also a great choice for year-round backpacking, for ski touring, or for paddling trips.” Indeed, their simplicity and strength make them perfect for anyone who wants a tent with excellent comfort and ventilation to take climbing, backpacking, cycle and paddle touring, even car camping – or on a polar expedition, for that matter – and never have to worry about either the weight, the roominess, or the strength.</p>

IN 1971, BO HILLEBERG, a professional forester, founded his own company, Hilleberg AB. That same year, while on a ski vacation in the Austrian Tyrol, Bo met Renate Neuner. After a couple of years, the two had fallen in love, married, and she had moved with him to Stockholm, Sweden. Their marriage was the final, necessary ingredient in the mix that has become Hilleberg the Tentmaker.

Before Renate, Bo’s fledgling company was primarily a forestry equipment concern, with tent making as a hoped-for sideline. An avid, lifelong outdoorsman, Bo was terminally frustrated with tents that required pitching the inner tent first and then covering it with a loose rain fly that usually displayed the same properties as a kite in the wind. He envisioned a tent that had an outer and inner tent that pitched together, simultaneously – but he didn’t have the necessary sewing skills. With Bo and Renate’s marriage, conjugal and commercial became one: Renate took charge of the sewing while Bo handled design and sales, and with their combined efforts, the company flourished.

Today, family and business are still inextricably linked. Bo is Chairman, and is senior advisor to the product development team; daughter Petra is CEO of the Hilleberg Group, President of both Hilleberg AB in Sweden and Hilleberg Inc in the US; and Bo, Renate, Petra and her brother Rolf make up the governing board of directors – clearly, family synergy continues to beget success.
