User Review: NEMO Losi 3P
Design: all season freestanding dome
Ease of Setup: easy
Price Paid: $500
Based on all the good reviews and the awards this tent won, despite some reservations, we purchased it for a two year cycle trip from London to New Zealand.
It was ok for a couple of months, being light and spacious, however after about about 40 days we noticed water on the tent floor. At first we thought that it was coming through the sides not protected fully by the fly. It does let water in there, but the worst problem is the floor. Despite having used the footprint since new the floor is now totally non waterproof. We have re-waterproofed it but the only way to keep dry is by using a cheap tarp we bought for 5 euro and putting this under the tent.
If the Chinese can make a tarp for 50 cents thats waterproof why can't Nemo put a decent floor on a $500 tent?
This is by far the leakiest tent I have ever owned and also the most expensive. I suggest anyone looking for a tent for serious use avoid this and buy a decent one. Also magazines who gave this awards should test things a little more thoroughly and save people wasting money on poor product. We are not the only people who have this problem and I would challenge Nemo to come up with a solution.
