Ultralight Hiking Tent From Nemo

A lighter tent shouldn’t mean sacrificing a good night’s sleep. Trusted outdoor equipment brand NEMO have developed the master of ultralight hiking tents to save your back, without skipping on quality, comfort and livability. The NEMO Hornet is the ultralight hiking tent for adventures demanding a lighter load.

 The NEMO Hornet is the ultimate lightweight tent, weighing-in at a mere 900g for the 2P edition, and an even lighter 765g for 1P. The Hornet 2P is equipped with two doors and two vestibules, for ultimate comfort for sharing the space. And better still, the Unique Divvy™ dual stage stuff sack makes it easy to divide the load with your travel partner.


The clever single hubbed pole intersections of the Hornet allow for lightning quick setup so you can clock up more steps on the trail, and spend less time setting up camp. And with time in mind, the Hornet is a free-standing tent, meaning it can be erected without the need for ropes and a fly. Of course, if you need more space, you can also pitch the triangular shaped cords for 15% more interior capacity, making your home on the trail even more enjoyable. 

The Hornet’s true tub floor reduces seam construction, and seam tape (made to increase the longevity of the tent) has a built-in privacy panel for extended coverage and security. The tent also has the NEMO overhead Light Pockets™ built into the canopy, providing a pleasant and even glow through it’s unique light-diffusing fabric.

You’ll also be happy to know that Hornet’s included accessories won’t way you down with it’s stakes, guy-out cords, repair kit and optional Hornet Footprint to protect your tent floor all still weighing in under 950g.


The smart design and fabric-set of the Hornet, combined with NEMO’s commitment to adventure and fearless pursuit of uncharted paths, make for the ultimate ultralight experience.
