The Curated Take

Johnny V, Camping Expert
By the Expert Community

I have taken the Nemo Hornet out into the wild many times, it works great in pretty much any environment. I am an avid backpacker who values gear that seamlessly blends lightweight design with unwavering reliability, this tent emerged as a steadfast companion in the challenging conditions of the Superstition mountains, where I have used it the most.

Setting up camp was surprisingly straightforward, thanks to the Hornet's intuitive color-coded system and featherlite poles and simple guylines. The dual vestibules proved practical, offering extra storage space without compromising the tent's compact interior. Also, it is a necessity for me to have two people use the tent.

At night, the mesh walls provided an unobstructed view of the night sky, and the tent's ventilation system maintained a comfortable atmosphere. Rain has put the Hornet's capabilities to the test, and it has held its ground with the rainfly and waterproof flooring.

The only downside is the tent's snug interior, posing a challenge for taller individuals or those seeking more spacious accommodations, especially for 2 people. I would consider something else for a real winter experience, but I would be willing to give it a go with a warm sleep system. Nevertheless, the trade-off between weight and space is a calculated compromise for a lightweight yet durable shelter in unpredictable situations. The Nemo Hornet 2-person tent has proved its worth time and time again for me. Earning its place as my top choice for lightweight backpacking on pretty much every adventure.

NEMO’s award-winning Hornet Two-Person Ultralight Backpacking Tent comes in at a mere 1lb, 15oz in the two-person size, making it a light option for a pair out on a long trek or an individual looking for a little more sleeping and gear room without adding weight. Key Features:

  • Volumizing Guyouts – NEMO designed the Hornet so that the inner tent can connect to the rain fly, effectively pulling the sidewalls outward to create additional internal volume.
  • DAC Featherlite Poles – The Hornet’s poles are super light and connect together at one hub to make setup even faster and easier.
  • Light Pockets™ – Overhead pockets with special light-diffusing fabric turn your headlamp into ambient overhead lighting.
  • Divvy™ Sack – NEMO’s dual stuff sack allows you to easily split the tent between partners' packs.

Came to the site again (with previous good experience from other departments) in need of a tent and footprint-- Elizabeth was great with recommendations and offering more options that stayed within the budget but weren't on the radar to begin with. That and helping with other recommendations generally for hiking/camping, she is greatly appreciated!

I was looking for a weather proof tent for a homeless veteran. I thought I needed 4 season 1 person. Jeffrey recommended 3 season, 2 person since it's California. No snow.
