Hilleberg Unna Mesh Inner – 4 Season to 3 Season Conversion Kit
What it is : Some time back, I posted a video about the Mesh Inner Conversion kit for the Hilleberg Nammatj tent;
The kit converted the shelter from a 4 season tent to a 3 season one and I’ll quickly explain what that means.
Hilleberg is renowned for their 4 season tents; within this category of shelter, their tents are frankly the best of the best in terms of strength and storm worthiness.
While their 4 season tents excel in the winter time in cold conditions, those types of shelters are the opposite of what you want as the temperatures rise.
This is why;
Double wall 4 season tents feature a fabric inner like this and this fabric inner provides some true benefits when camping during the winter months.
It blocks wind drafts, blocks snow from entering the tent body, and it holds in heat.
Think of those properties for a moment;
Blocks wind drafts and holds in heat. This is the exact opposite of what you want in the summer when it is warm;
You want as much air flow as possible and you want warmth to be released instead of being trapped.
That’s where is product comes into play –
The last time that you all saw the Unna on my channel was back in the winter when I was using the tent in a winter storm. It performed incredibly well in the storm that started as a freezing rain event, then transitioned to a wind driven snow storm.
The tent performed just as a 4th season tent should but now that summer is here, it is simply too warm to use this tent comfortably.
This is the Hilleberg Mesh Inner for the Unna and it replaces the fabric inner so that this shelter can be used in the warmer months.
If you saw the Nammatj Conversion kit video, this isn’t going to be all that different other than we are focusing on the kit with a different tent.
I find this sort of gear interesting and I wanted to share this content with those that do as well.
How important is this kit? That is a great question –
Without it, I would never use this tent in the warmer months….it’s absolutely miserable to do so.
It’s like this, you go camping with this tent or similar, you set it up and let’s say that it’s 80F outside. Inside of the tent, it can easily be 20 – 30 degrees warmer and again, that’s because the fabric is hold in in heat and it’s limiting air flow.

Speak of how the fabric inner is removed and the mesh inner is installed
Compare weight of fabric inner and mesh – does the mesh weigh less?
Worth the money – For those who plan to use their strong Hilleberg tent in the warmer months, this mesh inner is a no brainer as the benefits are massive.
A Hilleberg tent with a fabric inner in the summer is basically unusable in warmer conditions whereas with the mesh inner, it becomes a supremely strong tent that can be used in the 3rd season.
Tent Availability : Akto, Anjan 2, 3, Allak, Enan, Helags 2, 3, Kaitum 2, 3, Soulo, Soulo BL, Staika, Nallo or Nallo GT 2, 3, or 4, Nammatj, Nammatj GT 2, 3, Rogen, and Unna tent.
Product Availability : unfortunately due to the shortages and limitations which many industries are facing today, the mesh inners for most Hilleberg tents are exceptionally hard to locate.
How did I find this one : I called outdoor retailers all across the country and asked them to take note of my name and number and what I was looking for.
It took 6 months but finally I found one and here it is.
