User Review: NEMO Meta 2P
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $200
The NEMO Meta 2 is an excellent tent for two people the overall weight with Nemo stakes, ground cloth and water proof stuff sack is 4lbs 6oz. This is a strong lightweight large tent for two people myself and fiance sleep very comfortable in it with plenty of gear. The two large vestibule allow easy storage of packs and stoves. I was able to get the total weight of the tent to 3lbs 5oz by using a silbylon stuff sack a 2mil painters cloth foot print and not using the stuff sack for my stacks (small patch of nylon for the spiked end and two rubber bands for the stakes).
- High space-to-weight ratio (gobs of room for 3lbs 5oz)
- Extremely stable in high winds
- Trekking pole setup (allow for duel purpose on my trekking poles)
- Plenty of adjustment for rain sag
- Stuff sack is too heavy
- Adjustment required to counter rain sag
Setup: The tent is a simple set stake out off six points place trekking poles and extend then guy out side baffles for ventilation. To increase the side walls I used the second set of trekking poles to go out and down for the guy outs.
Stability: I spent many a winter night on top of a ridge line in high winds and light sleet and snow, does not budge this rock solid design. When all guy lines are set up you wouldn't know it was storming out.
Weather Resistance: No a drop... Thanks to the large vestibules there is no fear of splash back inside the tent.
Ventilation: Great ventilation when it is high temps in a rain storm in summer it with no breeze this thing creates its own.
Room & Storage: More than enough to hold two and in a pinch you can get three (but it is tight with three).
Packability: Small light profile fits in the pack like a glove.
