Nemo Nano Tent (Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2008) - 1
The Nemo Nano tent, available May 2008.

While this latest entry from Nemo is rated as a three-season tent by Nemo it's likely sufficient for Bob's needs on this trip. The tent uses Nemo Airbeam™ technology but replaces the now familiar inner bladder with a single tube. Construction of the beams has also changed. The tent has an interior area of 36 ft2 which will let Bob share the space comfortably with a companion. The 8 ft2 vestibule should provide enough room for them to store the wettest of their gear outside the main tent but still under cover. Nemo has used their Osmo&trade waterproof breathable fabric for the body and Sil/PU fabric for the fly. If Bob is feeling paranoid about the storm worthiness of the tent he can add the winterizing kit which includes two DAC Featherlite poles and WindShield™ for an additional $108. This will add 8 ounces to the overall weight. For mild winter conditions we suspect this won't be necessary though until we actually test the tent ourselves this is an open question.

  • Available: May 2008
  • Weight: 3.5 pounds (1.59 kg); Winterizing kit 8 ounces (0.23 kg)
  • MSRP: Nano Tent $299.00; Winterizing kit $108.00
