S&S is proud to offer the only "Backcountry Approved" tent on the market. We call it backcountry insurance. I wouldn't trust my sleep to any other tent. Where do you put your trust?
Hilleberg the Tentmaker is a family owned company with 50 years of experience in manufacturing lightweight, all-season tents of the highest quality. A Swedish company known for making truly top of the line expedition quality backpacking tents. Their tents are more expensive, but in this case you certainly get what you pay for. Hilleberg uses their own ripstop (ripstop describes fabric that has one very strong thread occasionally woven in to stop rips from growing) Nylon 66 fabrics (strongest in the industry) treated with 3 layers of 100% silicone, and they named it Kerlon.
