PBP Episode 32 - New Hilleberg All-Season Tents

PBP Episode 32 - New Hilleberg All-Season Tents



Quote:
This episode features my conversation with Petra Hilleberg, President and CEO of Hilleberg (USA), about the company's new Soulo, Allak, and Kaitum 3 shelters.

Petra shares details regarding the construction and features for each of these new models. Listen in to learn about Hilleberg's light and durable Kerlon fabric, their spacious tunnel and sturdy dome designs, and other real-world-tested features that go into every Hilleberg tent.

Excellent interview and information. I was running several window screens, each with one of the three tents, and another with a photo of Petra. Made it seem like a multi-media thing.

Thanks Quoddy. I'm glad you enjoyed it. And it does enhance the experience to have some visuals here and there.

Listened to it yesterday at work (makes the day fly by!) and really enjoyed hearing about the weather you had while testing the tent, Reality...nothing like sitting in a tent hearing branches and trees hitting the ground all around you, is there...LOL...

I also appreciated the entire podcast with Petra...went and ordered the new catalog and mentioned PracticalBackpacking podcast when asked how I had heard about Hilleberg...not exactally true as I've known about them for over a decade but it was your podcast that encouraged me to further check out their tents...not that I need a new tent...(note to self...Mata no need new tent! Mata no need new tent!)

Hello Reality,
I enjoyed your interview with Petra, well done. Hilliberg tents are great because of the quality of materials used, the excellence of design, old world craftsmanship in production, real world testing, and the passion that motivates the Hilliberg family. I think your experience with the Soulo is the natural outcome or fruit of these things. Also, if one can not be "out in it", it is always fun to adventure vicariously through another's trip report and to talk about the gear that makes our outdoor wanderings possible. Happy Trails,
Greg (aka: Marmotman)
