NEMO Equipment Inc. Galaxi Tent w/ Footprint: 2-Person 3-Season
The Nemo Equipment Inc. Galaxi Tent is the perfect choice for two-person backpacking and camping trips from spring to fall. Nemo built the walls out of no-see-um mesh for much-needed airflow in summer, the fly out of PU-coated polyester ripstop for water-resistant protection you need in rainy spring days, and the floor out of PU-coated nylon for excellent longevity and waterproof protection. Hubbed aluminum poles and clips make for a quick and simple setup. The two-person Galaxi also features MagTie magnetic tie-backs to keep the door out of the way, a Light Pocket with special light-diffusing fabric to evenly distribute brightness across the tent, and a repair kit for your convenience. Nemo also includes a stuff sack, stakes, and guy-out cords so you can get out right when you get this tent.

Backpacking Tents Checklist
||Weight Matters! For two
people, any backpacking tent should weigh less than six-pounds...preferably
||Don't Forget the Bulk. Packing
a bulky tent sucks. Make sure it packs down tightly, ideally packing
down to about 10x20 inches (smaller is better).
||Mesh Matters. As a general
rule, the more mesh, the lighter the tent. For warmer three-season
use, usually, the more mesh you have, the better. Not only does the
mesh save weight, but also allows for better air-flow.
||Vestibules & The Rain. An
often forget detail about backpacking tents are the vestibule. The
vestibule provides a little canopy in front of your tent. Not needed
during good weather, but absolutely needed during wet weather. Try
to get one that is about 5 sq. feet large, or larger.
||Speaking of Rain... Make
sure the entire floor of the tent is waterproof. Most are, but if
the tent says the floor is just "water resistant"...don't buy it!
You'll regret it the first time your sleeping in it during the rain.
||Remember the Footprint! Virtually
all good backpacking tents also come with "footprints," which are
essentially waterproof and tough tarps cut-out in the shape of the
tent. Buy It! Not only does it enhance the tent's waterproofing,
it also protects the bottom of the tent. Yes, they aren't cheap.
But they are a lot cheaper than replacing the tent due to a sharp
stick tearing a hole in the floor of your expensive backpacking tent!
