User Review: NEMO Meta 2P
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $300-400 can't remember exactly
Really light single skin hiking pole tent. Very spacious inside and dry in heavy rain. Good as a tent for backpacking if you hike with poles, as it removes the need for carrying tent poles.
- Pole placement eyelets
- Good breathability
- Waterproof compression sack, doesn't compress as it's water (air) proof
A little about me: 22, 6ft 3in, tent used as my shelter 1-4 nights a week as I am an outdoor education guide. Owned since October 12.
Setup is nice and fast. I use a footprint which clips onto the tent base. Peg out pegs then put in the poles and adjust for the right height to make the tent taut.
I have had no issues with wind or rain, really nice and strong setup, good stakes come standard.
The gap between the footprint and the tent can have water pool in, the floor remains dry inside.
Ventilation can be improved when staking out the flap guy cords by putting a stick under the cord to lift up the flap.
Excellent room inside, really spacious, can have 2 big 6ft plus people camping comfortable, and not having to spoon for lack of floor space. 2 large vestibules provide ample storage room.
Tent packs down nice and small, if the waterproof bag is ditched for a light compression sack size can be improved drastically making it an excellent option when space is an issue.
The tent works fine as per all of the manufactures claims. I have used it regularly as I am a guide, and it hasn't let me down.
Seems to be fairly durable when used with the footprint, as can only be expected from a lightweight tent, its not a tent I would use for industrial purposes as it doesn't have the durability, but if you love it, it will return you with excellent shelter, just like any piece of gear.
