The Hilleberg Keron 3 GT quickly became the standard tent for polar expeditions because of its superb durability and excellent wind stability, its roomy interior, and its simplicity. These same traits have made this tent a favorite of outdoor enthusiasts of every stamp. Certainly this includes the professionals, such as mountain guides, forest rangers, search and rescue teams, and military special operations units. At the same time, the Keron 3 GT is also an excellent choice for families, hikers and regular users - anyone wanting a tent that is exceptionally sturdy yet relatively light in weight, that will work for any situation, and that will handle many years of use. Indeed, the Keron 3 GT is an admirable choice for any backcountry adventure, from demanding, extended winter expeditions, to long or short rambles in mountains and/or forests, to casual coastal jaunts, to relaxed overnight camping outings in your local recreation area. The Keron 3 GT is a fine choice for dog mushers and cycle tourers because its extra large vestibule allows plenty of storage space for sled or bike equipment. In fact, you can park two bicycles in the Keron 3 GTs vestibule!
