Nemo Equipment puts to rest the notion that backpacking tents can't be spacious or comfortable with the Hornet Elite 2P Tent. This ultralight structure weighs just under two pounds, and maximizes efficiency on long-distance treks where the allotment of every single ounce is of utmost importance. A double door design with two vestibules helps you and your adventure partner unwind at the site with a roomy, flowing design, as well as store packs and muddy boots safely. Keeping time on your side, the DAC Featherlite NFL pole attaches in a hubbed intersection for a quick set-up and easy freestanding pitching. Nylon fabric along the tent floor and vestibule cut down on weight, but not protection or durability, while PU and silicone coatings provide waterproof protection when you encounter unexpected afternoon downpours. In addition to the dual doors, the Hornet Elite's mesh canopy enhances air circulation in those hot, muggy conditions that come along with summertime backpacking.
