Description

The lightweight (minimum weight of 1 pound 10 ounces) NEMO Hornet 1P tent offers backpackers a sturdy freestanding shelter at a fraction of the bulk and weight they’d traditionally expect. The tent’s streamlined profile helps shed wind and water during bad weather and the full mesh canopy offers good ventilation in warmer weather.

The tent measures 87.1" x 39.4" (at its widest point) and offers about 21 square feet of internal space. A vestibule in front of the single large side-entry door offers 7 square feet of additional space to stow gear. The walls are 15 denier ripstop nylon with No-see-um mesh to provide ventilation and prevent insect entry.

A single hubbed-pole design creates a unique architecture with free-standing support and minimized weight. NEMO has moved the front pole hub overhead which creates more interior volume without the need for an additional ridge pole. Color-coded poles and guylines make for easy setup.

Corner guyout points with a unique triangular design at the “foot” of the tent can be staked-out to maximize internal space or left un-staked for weight savings.

A raised waterproof bathtub-style floor enhances performance in poor weather and also cuts down on wear-and-tear. Fully seam taped construction and the 10D polyurethane-coated Sil ripstop nylon rainfly further bolster weather protection. Guyout cord, stakes, and a repair kit are included. A custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to offer additional protection against standing water rocks and roots.

Great for the more careful backpacker

Likes

Very spacious despite being super lightweight. I could easily fit my 25" wide air pad, even at the foot. The flybar design is brilliant and makes a big difference when you sit up. The separate pole sack makes it a lot easier to pack the tent body up; I typically carry them separately, so this was a big help. Ventilation seems to be really good as I experienced very few problems with condensation.

Dislikes

The material is not as durable (I had some minor tears despite using a groundsheet after a few nights, though easily repairable). The fly barely covers the inner tent, relying on proper staking to protect from rain. If a stake gets torn out for some reason, you will almost certainly get wet somewhere if it rains. The stakes also suck, but replacing them is cheap.

Love the updates!

Likes

The updates are awesome! Nice crossbar at the peak to provide more headroom, headlamp pocket is better positioned & wider, side panel pocket has been moved further down and is wider, poles are color coded, foot end has some type of rods in the corners to create a more boxed off, spacious area, privacy mesh on both side is great and it still is about the same weight as the older model!

Dislikes

I don't particularly like Nemo's stakes so I always swap out for Vargo Titanium Shepherd Hook stakes.

BAM Home Run!

The product designers at NEMO get a thumbs up. The detailing, materials and features are fantastic. Light weight, easy to deploy, easy to knock down. Used it last weekend…wish it had rained.

Dislikes

Nothing…couldn't be happier. Waterproof - still TBD.

Great 1 person tent!

Likes

I love how lightweight this tent it. Just the poles, flysheet and tent body are only 26 oz! The tent is well constructed and it is very spacious. It has a pocket with a light diffusing fabric that you can use for your headlamp. Seems to block the wind very well.

Dislikes

I don't like how heavy the tent stakes are so I have to use different ones. Packing the tent into the half mode stuff sack can be a little tricky because it has a flybar and stays that are of hard material but it is possible.
