The Keron 3 and 4 are outstanding hard use, all-around wilderness tents. They are preeminent for adventures where, between strength and absolute lowest weight, strength is more important, since their exceptionally strong Kerlon 1800 outer tent fabric and 10 mm poles make these some of our strongest models. Thanks to both their strength to weight and space to weight ratios, as well as their two door/two vestibule configuration, they excel for year 'round, above tree-line use. Both are especially suited to extended snow camping in extreme conditions, and while their Tunnel Tent design is geared more for mobile adventures, where you pitch and strike your tent every day, they can be used quite effectively for base camp-oriented trips, as well.
When the Keron was first introduced, it quickly became the standard tent for polar expeditions because of its superb durability and excellent wind stability, its roomy interior, and its simplicity. These same traits have made these tents favorites of outdoor enthusiasts of every stamp. Certainly this includes the "professionals," such as mountain guides, forest rangers, search and rescue teams, and military special operations units. The Keron are also excellent choices for families, hikers and "regular" users – anyone wanting a tent that is exceptionally sturdy yet relatively light in weight , that will work for any situation, and that will handle many years of use.
