Himalaya is developed in close cooperation between Helsport and BÝrge Ousland, based on BÝrges experiences from 30 years of expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Safety is always critical on such trips, and this tent has all the necessary details you need for safe and easy handling during the world's worst conditions.
This is a relatively small expedition tent, perfect for one person, but also enough space for two on trips where weight is important. The tent has three alternative entrances. That ensures that one always is sheltered from wind. The front can be opened fully, like an open shelter.
Himalaya is optimal for winter-use; every single detail is developed to ensure they work as easily and functionally as possible. It has durable, reinforced details that manage the most extreme conditions. The storm flaps with integrated peg loops are in one piece around the tent. This reduces the pitching time especially during windy conditions. The peg loops are wide and not too long, perfect for pitching the tent with skis.
Ventilation is an important element on all tents. Himalaya has one angled vent on both sides that are slanted, and placed high enough so they do not pack up with snow, despite windy conditions. The flysheet har a tear strength of 20 kg, making it one of the most durable in the market. In addition, there are two centered vents placed high in the front and rear. Together these four vents create a safe and flexible venting system.
