The Nemo Dagger 2P Tent is an ultralight tent for backpacking with two. You choose whether your hiking partner is a dog or a human. The Dagger strikes a balance between weight at 3 lbs 5 oz and space at 31 sq ft. The freestanding structure pitches quickly and when you clamber inside you can go right to sleep or sit up playing cards. There is plenty of head room to make the space functional from a sitting position. The dual doors and dual vestibules make it simple to keep gear separate and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and roomy enough for two My fiancée and I used this tent on a recent four-day backpacking trip in the mountains of southern Colorado. The tent is nice, lightweight, and easy to set up. Like the Dagger, my previous tent (from a different vendor) used Jake's Feet and I never had any trouble with them breaking or getting lost; I don't worry about those things with the Dagger, either. Like all lightweight tents, the Dagger is by no means spacious but we felt that there was plenty of room for the two of us. I am tall, about 6' 4", and did not feel cramped while laying down or while sitting. That said, it would have been awesome if Nemo offered a long version of the Dagger. It would be a good tradeoff (for me) to carry a few extra ounces in exchange for a longer tent. One minor complaint: Each side of the tent has a mesh pocket near the door, but the pockets are at opposite ends of the tent. If both sleepers have their head at the same end of the tent, this means that one person will have the pocket in a convenient location near their torso whereas the other will have the mesh pocket near their knees. It did not rain on us so I cannot comment on how watertight the Dagger is. With luck, all my hikes will be under clear blue skies!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Floor not as wide as advertised I do love this tent, however, the floor dimensions are not as advertised. The floor width of the tent is listed at 70inches, but two 30 inch air mattresses fills up the tent wall to wall and my tape measure shows that it is just barely over 60 inches wide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nickel Size Hail I just spent the last 30 days living out of my Nemo Dagger 2P. It held up to nickel sized hail, all night rains, and windy conditions throughout the Rockies. I was proactive in purchasing this tent during the black Friday sales, way ahead of my June travels, but well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bombproof and Lightweight We used our new DAGGER 2P this weekend on a prep hike before our yearly PCT Section hike. I was very impressed with the interior and vestibule size. Set up was a breeze. A big rainstorm came through during the night. It poured for hours and we stayed super dry. I was surprised with how quickly the fly dried out after a solid drenching.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and Super Light I bought this tent with the intention to use it as a 2 person plus a dog. It is super easy to set up- it takes maybe 7-8 minutes start to finish with the rain fly. Very spacious for a backpacking tent and the vestibules are handy for extra gear. The only bummer is that the material seems like it could rip easily, especially with a dog inside. I'm planning on purchasing the Pawprint if/when Nemo makes one for the 3P Dagger. Overall, very happy and excited to use this tent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grate tent some small disappointments! This tent has met all expectations so far, me and my partner have just walked the cotswold way, 102 miles most of witch was wet thunderstorms and heavy rain. The tent is light to cary and simple to set up taking the two of us no time at all, and can easily be set up by one as well. I do have some concerns about the plastic Jakes feet and that if one were to brake the tent wood be rendered useless, altho they do seem strong. I think it is a necessity to have the foot print for this tent the material is very thin and wood easily be ripped without. The tent only comes with the minimum pegs necessary to erect it with out guide ropes, and altho I do get that this is because they are trying to save on the advertised weight for a tent of this cost, I do think they should give you the adequate number! I do however really like the fact you can roll up the porch of the tent giving you a grate view out, the tent dried well wen wet and i am looking forward do tracking across the HRP – Haute Route Pyrénées this summer where i will give the tent a real run through its paces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arguibly the best tents in the biz! This tent is effectively the same as the MSR Hubba Hubba (which is an excellent tent) but it has a LOT of extra features. ‘Jake’s feet’ make single-person set-up a breeze, glow zipper pulls, and pockets where you need it. It’s light as heck and a full 50” wide! I always reccomend a footprint for any tent.

Can this be dry pitched? ie pitch the fly firstthen attach the tent underneath.

Asked by: El Verdado
Hiya, thanks for your question! Yes! This tent can be dry pitched... but it will take a little finagling. You would need to remove the Jakes Feet, the plastic connectors (in lieu of grommets), from the corners of the tent and attach them to the corners of the footprint. The poles and rain fly can be attached to the foot print and the tent body can then be set up under the rain fly. Hope this helps!
