The Keron GT is a superb allround tent for summer and winter trips. It is this tunnel type that is being used by professionals when ample space and outstanding performance are required to withstand tough conditions during long periods. Simple in its handling, this model has all the details that are required for top function and dependability. In spite of its generous dimensions the four person version weighs just under 5 kg / 11 lbs!

Many expeditions the world over have relied on the Keron GT. It is well known as a base camp tent in the higher altitudes of the Himalayan mountains and as a mobile home for military special units. Mushers in the northern regions of Scandinavia and North America appreciate its uncomplicated configuration in snowy conditions when speed and simplicity when pitching camp are bliss after a hard day of balancing on the runners of a sledge. And the practical qualities of the Keron GT, like double entrances, are equally valued on a hiking trip through a forest or on a cycle tour. You can easily park two bicycles in the GT-vestibule of the four person version!

The Keron GT is your choice when the marriage of variable weather-suitability is high on your list next to the benefits of nearly endless space. With two vestibules, one being double the area of the standard vestibule, and a roomy inner tent you have the ballroom amongst true wilderness tents!
