NEMO Equipment Inc. Hornet 2P Tent: 2-Person 3-Season


Product Details

Nemo's Hornet 2P Tent is an ultralight backpacker with personal features for you and your camping partner. Its no-see-um mesh canopy provides plenty of ventilated airflow, while PeU-coated ripstop helps the vestibule, fly, and floor resist abrasion, dirt, and rainfall. The one-piece DAC Featherlite NFL pole offers an easy setup as well as an expanded interior. Unlike most ultralight tents, the Hornet 2P features two doors so your backpacking buddy doesn't crawl over you in the middle of the night. The tent's stuff sack can hold all the gear, or just the fabrics if you two are going to split the load. Nemo also included guy-out cords, a repair kit, and stakes for the utmost camping convenience.

Price : $ 369.95

Backpacking Tents Checklist

Weight Matters! For two people, any backpacking tent should weigh less than six-pounds...preferably less.
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!
