Helsport Himalaya 2 red/yellow
Light and flexible expedition tent with three alternative entrances.Himalaya has been developed in close co operation between Helsport and Børge Ousland, based on Børge's experience 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, ensuring 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 stormflaps 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. 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.

  • Three entrances
  • Mesh gear loft
  • Storm flaps
  • The pole channels and pole cups are dimensioned for both one and two poles
  • The Helsport AirFlow II® ventilation system ensures more fresh air, better quality sleep and increased air circulation which reduces condensation. The vents can be closed completely
  • Pole cups and color-coded poles/pole channels make the tent fast and easy to pitch
  • Unique internal pole channel system that provides better wind stability and less vibration/ noise in windy conditions
  • Extra strong guy lines and reinforced guy points. Several double guy points and combined guy lines. This reduces the number of pegs needed, and makes it easier to pitch the tent. To get an even distribution of force on the guy points the guy lines are connected through rings.
  • Guy-line points with integrated elastic webbing to collect and prevent the guy lines from getting entangled
