For a spacious and practical three season tent the Helags is a great option. With a generous amount of internal space, two entrances with two good sized vestibules and a number of ways to configure the set up this is a highly versatile tent.
Roomy, light, and comfortable, the new Helags models are outstanding choices for those looking for comfort and low weight for their adventures during the snow-free times of the year. Their two vestibule configuration results in an inner tent with vertical ends, near vertical sidewalls, and full sitting height throughout the tent. Curved patterning on the bottom of the outer tent walls provides full-time ventilation without compromising protection from rain, and all-mesh inner tent doors promote impressive air flow. For even more venting (and for great views), both vestibule doors can be rolled away completely. Patterned after the Red Label Kaitum, the Helags is an excellent “all-rounder.” It excels at mobile journeys, where you pitch your tent and take it down frequently, and it is equally at home on a variety of adventures. Backpackers, paddlers and bicycle tourers will all love its lightweight roominess, and since the Helags 3 weighs just 200 g (7 oz) more than the Helags 2, sizing up is an easy choice for those wanting even more comfort.

The Helags 3 Person Tent is a new shelter from Hilleberg that provides versatility and practical space. The details in the design, materials used and quality of construction result in a fantastic tent. Hilleberg focus their designs on quality, durable tents that provide shelter from challenging conditions. They use a label system to differentiate their tents and intended uses. The Helags falls into the Yellow Label category. This means that the tent is the best choice if light weight is your highest priority and if you travel in the snow-free months and in protected terrain, or in warmer climates.
The tunnel design of Helags provides immediate strength and space. However, with a focus on weight the Helags does use slightly thinner materials and is aimed at three season use. It will still stand up to pretty serious conditions we encounter in the Spring and Autumn. The design can seem similar to others in the range but there are a number of nice features such as the dual entrances and vestibules which give a serious amount of extra storage space along with somewhere to shelter and cook when the conditions are poor. The doors can be rolled and configured in different ways to maximise airflow or simply make the most of the views. The tent uses three poles to create a fairly level roof line so there is no loss of space as you usually find at the foot end of many tents.
