Hilleberg Rajd Tent/Shelter Description
Brand : Hilleberg
Season : Perennial
Code : 5005132
The Hilleberg Rajd tent is a hybrid shelter that blends the qualities of a tarp and tent into a simple, versatile superlight package. More than a tarp yet not quite a true tent, the Rajd (pronounced “ride”) is an excellent choice for those who favour a tarp’s gossamer weight, but don’t want to sacrifice the comfort of walls and a floor.
Comfortably big enough for two, the Rajd is a veritable palace for the solo traveler – especially one used to the confines of many solo shelter solutions, and it weighs less than many tarps and bivy bags! The Rajd is made from Kerlon 1200, the same highly durable and super light fabric found in our Hillebergs UL tarps and Ultralight tents, and is modelled on the very first Hilleberg tent, the two-pole ridge design Keb.
Great choice for adventure racers and mountain ultramarathon runners, especially since it complies with many race regulations that require overnight shelters to have a sewn-in floor. For those looking to go super light in the backcountry, the Rajd is also a worthy option, especially since it can be pitched with available branches or by suspending the ridgeline corners.
Due to its single wall construction which only puts only one layer of protection between you and the elements, it is, like all single wall designs, more prone to condensation than a double wall tent. To combat this, it has 'no-see-um' mesh into the the top third of the door to promote cross ventilation, and has a bisected eaves over each door with a zipper, so you can roll up one or both halves for even greater air flow.
