    Brilliant for its size and portability

    I have this tent for a couple of months now to accord a 5 star rating. First of all I am of smallish built so both my partner and I can fit in comfortably in the tent. Height is perfect for sitting up, as long as any of us doesn't stand upright (she did). The width is suitable for two mattresses side by side although some overlapping during the night - not tent's fault just the beds were so slippery. Tent material is strong (no rip so far although we camped in the roughest terrain, with an underlay of course). On the outside the coloured poles are helpful, make setting up the camp a breeze. Once all the tie down harnesses are anchored, it felt very firm. We have great confidence that it would withstand strong wind. One important feature is the tent can be moved around in any direction if needed, with the underlay.

    Easily my favourite 3-season tent to date (we have several 4 season rated single tents already).

    In terms of weight, the packed weight is just a tad below 1KG, with the underlay it comes to about 1.3Kg - still a nice portable tent in all account. Having read the review, we felt it was unjust to rate the tent 1 star - there will always be a bare weight and a packed weight. The tent is designed for 2P - if you are buily like my partner and I this is one tent that we would recommend strongly.

    Great tent for ultralight hiking

    I have owned one of these for 3 years. Its done the whole Te Araroa trail once and several hundred more km of ultralight hiking, and is being used in Europe now. Its light enough to carry the 2p as a single person tent and its ideal for that. Id recommend using it with the mat to protect the floor. Never had any failures yet or issues with condensation . The only criticism is that the cutaway in the fly is slightly high, and is best kept taught with a guy in wind/rain conditions. The elite version is lighter but more expensive & doesn’t have a loop for a guy in this position.

    Nemo hornet tent

    Very good, only criticism is the very small zippers tend to catch on the seams jamming frequently.
