Information about the Nammatj 2 Close
The Nammatj 2 is the master of both high and low country, equally suited for a high altitude expedition or a weekend walk in the local hills. This robust all-season, all-arounder pitches quickly and easily, can be taken down and moved in a flash, yet is far stronger and lighter than any other tent in its class.
Because of its superb weight to strength ratio and compact footprint, the Nammatj 2 has become immensely popular with extreme users, such as polar travelers looking to save weight, mountaineers doing remote routes in the highest ranges, professional guides, and military special forces teams. But these same characteristics are just as highly prized by more “regular” users, as well: backpackers, cycle and paddle tourers, and anyone needing maximum strength while reducing weight.
“Nammatj” is the Sami word for a lone mountain standing at the head of a valley.
In OutdoorGearLab’s review of 4-season tents, the Nammatj won top honors, earning the title Editors’ Choice: “The Hilleberg Nammatj is arguably the single most versatile tent we have ever tested.”
Norway’s Fjell og Vidde praised the Nammatj as a standout in their test of lightweight tents, saying that it offered the best durability.
Nammatj GT awards
Germany’s 4-Seasons magazine gave the Nammatj 3 GT their State of the Art award. Only two other products have been similarly honored.
USA’s Rock & Ice magazine gave the Nammatj 3 GT 4.5 stars, saying, “If you want just one tent for everything you do, from mountaineering to kayaking and climbing along the coast, to bicycling around the world or camping in the rain with your dog, this is the tent.”
Britain’s Adventure Travel magazine had this to say about the Nammatj GT: “What you do get is one of the best tents we’ve ever come across…In a line: This tent will outlive you.”
Britain’s leading outdoor magazine, The Great Outdoors, has twice named the Nammatj GT Best Buy. One reason for the 2004 award: “If you want the best, look no further.”
While every Hilleberg tent comes with all the pegs, lines and poles you need, you may, from time to time, need replacements. You may also want to accessorize for more flexibility on your adventures: spare line runners, guy line, and pole holders let you customize your shelter to your needs; special circumstances may dictate special use pegs or additional poles for stability; or you may simply want different sorts of pegs. Footprints can extend the life of your tent and cut down on condensation in the vestibules, and a hank of our strong, light guy line cord is always useful.
The mesh inner can also be used in place of the standard inner tent: simply disconnect the standard inner tent and button in the appropriate Mesh Inner Tent. While this greatly increases ventilation, the mesh inner tents weigh about the same as the corresponding standard inner tents, so there is not a significant weight savings.
Used alone, The mesh inner is a simple, highly versatile option for use in dry, warm conditions. Its full mesh walls provide not only maximum airiness and protection from flying and crawling insects, but also 360° views. When used in combination with a Tarp, the mesh inner retains all of its venting and viewing advantages while the Tarp provides protection from rain or shade from the sun.
Includes the pole holder kit to pitch the inner tent or mesh inner on its own.
Weight: 950 g
Note: the mesh inner tents weigh about the same as the corresponding standard inner tents, so there is not a significant weight savings.
Extra pole holders are needed when you want to pitch the inner tent by itself. Link these to the corners of the inner, and place the ends of the poles into them. 4 pole holders, two for each pole, are needed to pitch the Nammatj 2 inner tent on its own.
Every new tent includes enough pegs to pitch it, but a spare peg or two can save you the frustration of losing one in the middle of a long trip. Our Y-Peg is exceptionally strong yet quite lightweight, and its "Y" profile gives both excellent penetration in hard ground and plenty of surface area for reliable hold in softer conditions. Both because of its shape and its durable, hardened aluminum body, the sturdy Y-Peg can be hammered into hard ground. Its bright, gold anodized color makes it easy to see, and an attached string loop provides for easy removal. • 18 cm/7.1" • 16 g/0.6 oz • Set of 10 pegs •
Lightweight, tough and remarkably versatile, our Snow & Sand pegs are unique. After finding most so-called snow pegs to be too soft – they would bend in any but the fluffiest snow – we developed our own. Made from hardened aluminum, our Snow Pegs are built to withstand both very hard usage, including the inevitable contact with shovels, crampons and other winter gear, and very hard snow. At the same time, they are remarkably lightweight. The integrated line and hook gives you the flexibility either to bury the peg sideways in snow or sand, Deadman style, or to use it in a traditional, upright fashion. • 31 cm x 3 cm/12.2" x 1.2" • 50 g/1.8 oz • Set of 6 pegs and XP carrying bag •
Your tent comes with poles, an extra repair section and aluminum repair sleeve, but spare poles can come in handy, both for repairs and for "double poling," which gives extra strength and stability.
While our various stuff bags are sized for our poles, pegs, and, of course, our tents, they are also ideal for organizing your gear. Our peg bag is great for holding toiletries or other small essentials, and our larger bags, although sized for our tents, are ideal for your spare clothes, cooking gear, food or the like.
Peg bags are available only in black, and in our sturdiest XP fabric. Standard pole bags come in green or red, while the burlier XP pole bag is only available in black. Standard and XP tent bags in all sizes come in green, red and sand, come in five sizes, and have a round, sewn-in bottom. The XP versions have a sewn-in handle, as well.
An XP tent bag is included with the Nammatj 2.
Our proprietary 2 & 3 mm red and white guy line cord is strong, light and easy to see. Its interwrap construction interweaves super strong Vectran cord longitudinally with polyester, producing a cord with no sheath to slip, near zero stretch, minimal water absorption, an easy-to-handle soft feel, high UV resistance, and a stout 60 kg (132 lb) breaking strength for the 2 mm and 80 kg (176 lb) for the 3 mm. • 2mm/3 mm x 25 m (82 ft) • 53 g (1.9 oz)/133 g (4.7 oz) •
These unique and reliable line runners come with every tent, but they can also be purchased separately. They lock securely on a range of different line dimensions and are easy to adjust, even while wearing mittens. • 2 and 3 mm sizes (fits our 2 & 3 mm guy line, respectively) • Set of 10 •
3 mm guy line and line runners come standard with all tents except for our Yellow Label tents which come with 2 mm guy line and line runners.
