Helsport Svalbard 5 Camp Red/Yellow
Probably one of the worlds most experienced expedition tents.Proving itself on the North Pole, South Pole, Greenland and the world’s highest mountains, Svalbard can be described as a master of expeditions. Few other tents have so many merits and are so well known from the base camp as our Svalbard. All materials and details have been thoroughly tested.

Its construction combines the best from dome and tunnel tents, and withstands the harshest conditions. The dome makes the tent extra stable in strong winds, but also provides more space and height inside, which increases the comfort level if you are weather-bound or generally spend loads of time inside the tent. For increased security in extreme winds some choose to use double poles, and that is possible on this tent.

Svalbard has, since its introduction in 1999, been both developed and improved but remains our flagship in the X-Trem category, and through the years has won consumer tests as both a 4-season and an expedition tent.
A very good choice for longer winter trips, in tough conditions with strong winds, and when you value an extra level of comfort.

Helsport Rainguard® Pro:
For the rest of the PRO and X-TREM tents we have developed a solid outer tent fabric. It is over eight times more durable and tear resistant than normal fabrics, woven with the nest thread and coated on both sides with silicone. Naturally this fabric also features strong resistance to UV-rays and excellent fabric stability under changing weather and temperature conditions. It has a water column of minimum 3000 mm. This fabric is also used as a ground sheet for the SuperLight tents.

Helsport Airflow Pro:
The fabrics used in our PRO and X-TREM tents, are light and strong 30D polyester fabrics. The ripstop increases the tear strength and the fabrics are highly water repellent and breathable.

Helsport Rainguard®:
Ground sheets are a critical component of all tents, because they are exposed to additional wear and tear. Helsport ́s ground sheets have a great durability and tear strength. The surface facing down to the ground is coated with silicone, which prevents water penetration and reduces drying time.

  • Dome and tunnel tent combination
  • Inner tent with 360° zipper opening and mesh
  • Mesh gear loft
  • Storm fl aps
  • 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 which reduces condensation. The vents can be closed completely, to prevent them from packing with snow
  • 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
