User Review: NEMO Losi 2P
Price Paid: 260 CAD
I have just purchased this tent and used it for 2 separate nights now in 2 different circumstances.
This tent is AMAZING! I LOVE the way the tent poles click into the footprint of the tent and how you can put on your fly and tighten the straps around it once it's pegged down. The included pegs are extremely durable and lighter then any others that I've personally seen. All of the material is top notch!
Last night there were winds in excess of 40 km/h and the tent was just so quiet I couldn't believe it! The floor feels like it's silk and is going to rip if you even kneel on it but wow is that durable! After waking up the next morning (had to set up in the dark) I found that we had set the tent up (on shore) just over a piece of cactus. That never even made it through which just blows my mind!
The packing system is so appreciated as well. Once again in all of those winds, you could find it very hard to properly fold your tent and roll it into a stuff sack. I loved just being able to throw this into the compartment and roll it all up into the pack.
As far as some people are saying that you need to peg down at least two points on the tent; I wouldn't say it's 100% necessary. I've set this tent up twice now without pegging it down at all. Even in the heavy winds, all I had pegged down was the fly.
What I did notice with the lack of pegs on the actual footprint was that once the fly was pegged and tightened, it actually squeezed the end walls slightly to cause them to sag a bit. I'm sure that would be solved obviously with pegging but just an observation.
All in all: The tent hasn't been put through all the tests yet. I am, however, extremely confident to bring this bad boy on our trip up to jasper for Thanksgiving weekend. It's got everything you could possibly need in a decently lightweight, durable and extremely user-friendly tent. Worth every penny!
