NEMO Obi Elite 2P
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Obi tents are the black belt martial artists of Nemo's lineup. They are finely tuned instruments, with not one ounce of material wasted, every feature and detail driven by purpose and strategy. Subtly moving the front pole hub overhead gives the pole skeleton shoulders, creating more interior volume. A raised waterproof tub floor allows cutouts in the fly to save significant weight while improving ventilation.
MASTER OF ULTRALIGHT To turn our Obi(TM) tents into an Elite series, we had to scrutinize every stitch and component to a neurotic level. Nothing has been spared to give you a backpacking experience equal to an Obi(TM) but with even less weight. The Obi(TM) Elite 1P tent is the lightest poled tent made by NEMO. Using the latest in ultralight textile technology, it possess nothing inessential and has been refined by devoted study. It shares the unique overhead pole hub configuration with Obi(TM) tents, which creates more interior volume without the need for an additional ridge pole. The Obi(TM) Elite 1P foot end is tensioned by a single pole, creating a tripod for support and shaving precious ounces. A raised waterproof tub floor allows cutouts in the fly to save significant weight while improving ventilation. The tent has a single entrance and generous vestibule space which can be rolled back for maximum ventilation on starry nights.

Ultralight just got ultralight-er. The Obi Elite 2 from NEMO weighs in at just over 2 lbs but looses nothing in functionality and space. The 3 pole hub design gets rid of any excess pole weight and the extended tub floor allows for bigger cut-outs in the fly. By using lighter weight fabrics in the tent body and fly, NEMO created a 2-person tent that will make you double check your pack to make sure it's in there.
