Nemo Hornet 2 Person Tent

Lindy M.
Nemo 2 person

Have erected on lawn and love the look of it. Perfect for one person and my gear. Two people might have less wriggle-room, but could cope if gear outside.

Awesome lightweight & durable tent

We've cramned 4 adventure racers in this 2 man tent. Yip 4 people are very uncomfortable but in a pinch you can.
I've also had it pitched solo in ~100km/h winds around mnt Cook. The gusts pushed it flat ontop of me numerous times, but th
en it just popped back up. A fairly horrible night but the tent survived. It is very fast and easy to pitch and weighs ~800g even being a double wall tent.
I am seriously happy with this purchase.

Andrew A.
Excellent light weight tent

Very very light and effective. As a minimum weight tent, don’t expect masses of room, but there is enough for a good nights sleep for 2. Footprint recommended for most situations (adds 200g). Lightweight materials are robust but take care with zippers, guys, etc. A couple more pegs would be handy for windy weather. At the higher end of the tent, the fly has a high cut for ventilation which means some condensation on the inner tub side. Choosing a good pitch location plus some gardening of the floor site helps protect the materials.
