As the well-known archetype of all tunnel designs, the Keron has been chosen year after year by numerous expeditions around the world for its dependable performance and flaw-free function in tough conditions. A true all-round tent which after more than 20 years of constant refinement is still unbeaten when it comes to reliability and sheer simplicity in the field.

For two years in a row Keron has been chosen as the best tent around by readers of the German magazine Outdoor! It combines well devised space in the inner tent and the two vestibules, low weight and versatility which is the reason for its popularity amongst professional users on demanding expeditions as well as mountain hikers and families on cycle holidays.

Keron is a sound tunnel design with a versatility that adapts to all types of trips and all seasons of the year. Four different sizes offer the right tent for anyone who is serious about travelling the more remote places of the planet, but also make it easy to get appropriate shelter from the elements on a weekend trip closer to home. Aiming for the Andes, the Rockies or your favorite fishing creek? A Keron will provide a spacious home away from home, with all the convenience, space and low weight only a Hilleberg Keron can provide: two entrances and two vestibules, ease of handling and a lot of space!
