Hilleberg Atlas Basic Group Shelter


Large group shelters that are very strong, relatively light, and easy to pitch are difficult to find. The Hilleberg Atlas Group Shelter is all these things and more, since it is also totally modular. The people at Hilleberg originally designed and built the Atlas for polar scientists who wanted a mobile research station, and it has been used with great success by South Pole research teams for over seven years. It appeals to large backcountry groups of all types, from mountaineering expeditions needing a highly reliable, spacious base camp tent to outdoor programs looking for large, easily portable spaces for sleeping and group gathering. It has also become especially popular with outfitters leading large groups into remote places. The Atlas can be used in its Basic form, with no inner tent or floor, or it can be customized as needed with a variety of options. The Inner Tent 8 and 6 (Sold Separately), which sleep eight and six persons, respectively, both have sewn-in floors. The Floorless Inner (Sold Separately) also sleeps eight, and can be paired with the Detachable Floor (Sold Separately), which can also be used without the inner tent. External Vestibules (Sold Separately) can be added to either door, and the Connector (Sold Separately) can join multiple Atlas tents together. And the optional Carrier Bag (Sold Separately) is designed to function as a backpack for transporting an Atlas and all its optional components in a compact, easy-to-carry package.

Features of Hilleberg Atlas Basic Group Shelter:

  • Separate vent cover protects open vents from snow and rain
  • A combination of pole sleeves and short pole sleeves and clips provide quick and easy pitching. The system can accommodate double poling, which is an excellent practice when using the tent for a base camp in exposed terrain in extreme conditions
  • Free standing design provides very good stability and snow-load handling as well as full standing height inside
  • Lower vents afford increased air circulation and can also be used to accommodate ducting for warm air coming from an external heater
  • Adjustable roof vents can be closed with snow-proof panels, and are accessible from inside of the tent
  • Multiple guy line points afford even greater stability, especially as many of the guy line attachment loops are designed to be wrapped around poles or pole crossing points
  • Dual entrances are of nearly full standing height for excellent access
