Thru-hiking the PCTMy girlfriend and I took this tent with us on our thru-hike of the PCT. It stood up incredibly well over 2,665 miles, multiple landscapes, eco-zones and weather conditions. The dual vestibules and doors made it easier for the two of us to share such a small space for so long. The poles and tarp held up incredibly well but the bug netting stretched at the pole attachment point after about 100 nights. I reccomend this tent to any thru-hikers or hikers/ campers looking for a high end product worth every penny.

BEST TENT EVERThis is my favorite tent ever! Takes me no more than a handful of minutes to pitch this tent.
Don't let the single pole system fool you, it provides plenty of rigidity and volume for what is deceptively a very big tent that packs down to the size of a coconut. And don't let Nemo's thinner fabrics fool you! The weight-savings have not compromised its waterproofness, breathability, or durability at all! Tried and tested on the East Coast Trail and Gros Morne for 2 weeks in heavy storm conditions, down to 5C. Only thing that can potentially be improved on is a couple more guyline points to really provide this shelter with more rigidity.
This is my 4th Nemo tent I've purchased (I own the Losi 3P, Altistorm 3P, and the Bugout Shelter), and this is by far my favorite tent for its ease of use, insanely small packsize (fly, stakes, and tent packs down to size of coconut, the poles fold down to about the length of a retracted hiking pole).

Awesome tent and even better customer service.Id like to start by saying this tent withstood 25-30 mph winds Saturday night which is a testament to its durability. I just purchased this a couple weeks ago and this was its maiden camping trip. I noticed a small part of the stitching in the seem of the stuff sack to be coming undone. The rest of the tent is fine. I emailed Nemo with a picture of the small stitching issue and Ben had a tracking number and a new stuff sack in the mail, literally, within minutes.
I'll be purchasing my new sleeping bag and pad from Nemo now.

Love this tentI just got back from a snow backing trip in KingsCanyon N.P. This was my first time taking the tent out. The tent was so easy to set up. I really like the design so that no wind came into my tent. And of course the light weight of the tent.

2 trip reviewHave used this trip on 2 trips (11 days total) this Spring to the Sierras. Decent tent.
Positives: light weight. so I decided to weigh it myself: 2 lbs, 3 oz (tent, poles, 6 ground stakes, large tent stuff sack, small stake stuff sack -- left out pole sack and cord). Good design: kept all moisture out of tent. NO WATER got inside tent in gusty rainstorm!!! Not even a splash!! (much better experience than my REI Dash 2, which I just sold on EBay for more than I paid!) Condensation stays on fly, outside tent: no drips, bone dry inside. The light/headlamp diffuser pocket is cool and works. Perfect size for me and 70# pitbull . . .would be tight for 2 adults tho as all tents this size are . . . .
Negatives: wider triagulating guyouts in the corners would have created more space inside by supporting walls better (using side pockets collapses tent). Definite learning curve setting up in heavy wind. How about modifying pole/rain fly attachments so that it could be set up as just a tarp or, better yet, set up first when raining so that my stuff stays dry? Changing poles to carbon fiber and adding small triangle at base would make it truly freestanding and easily allow for fly-only use (without adding weight) Pine needle punctured the floor so recommend footprint. I used my ZPacks cuben fiber rain parka, which was a perfect fit!

Solid, lightweight tentI got this tent earlier this year because I wanted a lightweight but spacious tent for myself. I've used it on several solo trips as well as on a section of the AT with my friend, who is thru-hiking southbound. It is so incredibly light, easy to set up, and very reliable so far. I haven't used it in extreme thunderstorms but have no doubt that it would hold up. I'm 5'5" and 113 and already carry a heavier stove and my DSLR, so couldn't afford a heavy tent too. I could not be happier with my purchase and absolutely love it.
I will say that you should definitely buy the footprint as well as some shepherd hook tent stakes. The ones they provide are good but don't give enough room for the fly, footprint, and tent paracord.

Ultra Light, Ultra Packable.I have only taken this out on one trip to the Madison river, in the Bear Trap Canyon. My first impression of the tent is amazing. It takes no space in your pack and weighs next to nothing. It is only slightly larger than a ENO double nest and comfortably sleeps two (assuming that you really love the person you are sharing the tent with..). It perfectly fits the Nemo Tango Duo slim and my wife (5'6" 120lbs) and myself (6'0" 165lbs) slept with ample space. The tent ventilates well and feels surprisingly sturdy once set up. We do have the footprint which I would recommend as the floor does seem a bit thin (I am sure it can stand up to some abuse, but you might as well prolong the use of a 370$ tent with a 50$ footprint). I would definitely recommend this product for couples or as a solo tent, if you like a little extra space.
Tent + 2 Cosmo Air Insulated Pads + Tango Duo Slim and Slip Cover = >8lbs - you really cant lose.
ALSO, the set up is very intuitive and is easy to setup/breakdown with one person. The fly is very is to get aligned properly and very taught. I would buy it again.

Very happy so far...I bought the Nemo Hornet 2P because I decided my Tarptent Moment was just a little too cramped. I backpack solo, but I needed a little more room than a 1p tent provides to sleep comfortably. I just got the Hornet 2P last week so I haven't had a chance to give it a road test yet, but when I set it up in my living room I was very pleased with how incredibly easy this tent is to set up...done in minutes. Nice and roomy inside for one person, but probably a bit tight for two unless you like to spoon. And the best part is the ultralight Hornet 2P weighs about the same as my Tarptent Moment. I highly recommend buying the footprint also, because the tent bottom is made of thin material to save weight.
I'll post a follow-up review in a few weeks after I do an overnighter out in SoCal desert.
