What’s the difference between Pro, Superlight, Trek and X-Trem tents?
The tents are made of different materials and meet different needs.
SUPERLIGHT is a 3-season tent: Very light, small packing volume and robust materials.
PRO is a 4-season tent (year-round tent): Very robust, our most versatile tent.
X-TREM is adapted for expeditions and winter use.
TREK is a cheaper 3-season tent and is designed for easier use, for example on campsites.

What is a tunnel tent?
What does 3-season and 4-season tent mean?
A 3-season tent is designed primarily to be used in spring, summer and autumn. This means that the material is not designed to withstand snow, ice and extreme weather.
Our Superlight tents have the least possible weight and packing volume.
A 4-season tent is designed to be used all year round. Our PRO tents are extremely robust and can withstand harsh weather conditions.
The PRO tents are the perfect compromise between weight, packing volume and robustness.
For a winter hike in the mountains, we recommend an X-Trem tent that can withstand snow, ice and strong winds. Storm flaps and reinforced guy rope points make the X-Trem tents suitable for the toughest of expeditions.
How do I choose the right tent for me?
The most important questions are: When, where and how are you going to use your tent?
You need to consider the season (weather), size (how many people), weight and how robust your tent needs to be.
Here are some examples:
1: Hiking in summer, low weight is important, 3 people
--> Lofoten Superlight 3 Camp
2: Hiking all year round, 2 people, tent must be freestanding
--> Reinsfjell 2 Pro
3: Winter expeditions, 3 people, use with a sled bag, easy to pitch
--> Spitsbergen X-Trem 4 Camp
What materials do you use in your tents?
We use nylon or polyester for the tent cloth and aluminum for our poles.
The choice of materials is essential to the product’s performance and service life.

How do you pitch a lavvu?
There are two methods:
In a group:
One person holds the pole upright inside the tent while the others put the pegs in.
On your own:
Put the pegs in first, then climb in with the pole and erect the tent.
In both cases, it is important that the pegs are put in diagonally. Don't tighten the pegs too much at first. Tighten them once the tent is sturdy.

Yes, we do.
They include: Inner tent, groundsheet, top cap, wood-burning stove, burner, drying rack, spare poles.
