High Angle Solutions – Brigantes Presents – Hilleberg Keron 4 GT Military Tent

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

The Hilleberg Keron 4 GT has long been the go to tent for arctic explorers and adventurers.  It offers outstanding functionality and robustness in a light and easily used format.

Recent developments based on the hugely popular civilian range have seen the addition of IRR and light blocking fabrics.  This resulted in the Hilleberg tents being adopted by the UK MOD, for their Arctic operations and reduced the weight of the in service tent by 5Kg (11lbs) as well as providing a huge increase in robustness.  It is now used by the majority of Northern European militaries as their solution for accommodating troops whilst operating in extreme environments.

The Keron offers a large amount of space for administration as well as comfortable sleeping for four soldiers.  It does also come in a number of other sizes to allow you to fit your tent the scale of your team and task.
