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 2 out of 5 by from The good and the bad I rarely write reviews, but believe this is important. This tent has some nice pluses and some very important minuses. We used it for a week in the Wrangell mountains in Alaska. Conditions were pretty constant rain, mild to moderate wind, and mildly cold temperatures. Pluses. The tent is light, and packs well. It’s easy to carry, and kept us dry. The rain fly is very nice. Well sealed, kept out fairly heavy rain, and has good sized vestibules for gear. But minuses are significant. It is not robust. One pole bent the first time we used it, and the cross pole connector broke the second time the tent was pitched. During a brief period of strong wind the poles collapsed and the tent flattened. The fly material is wonderfully fine so light, but I had major concern about tearing (though it didn’t actually happen). However, the worst part of the tent is the proprietary connector system called the “Jakes foot”. On paper it looks lovely, but in the field it was terrible. The tent and footprint connect to the “Jakes foot” with very small clips. They are hard to connect at the best of times and with cold wet hands very difficult. Were there snow or ice it would be impossible. The poles connect into the Jakes foot (instead of the more traditional grommet), essentially clicking into the plastic. After a week of use the cup in the plastic was already getting sloppy so the pole ends were loose. Much more use and I believe they would not hold at all. Bottom line, this could be a really nice tent with some redesign and modifications. As is, it is probably a tent that should be for folks who do occasional weekend trips in mild weather with a possibility of rain but pretty much no chance of snow or high wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Convenient, and Performs I just spent 10 nights in the Dagger 3P. My wife and I stayed perfectly dry through some serious rain storms in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness; my dad, son & I stayed perfectly comfortable in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The tent is as lightweight as advertised, and the stuff sack is perfect for a back pack. The rain fly kept us dry and provided beautiful light shows during a lightning storm. The floor is waterproof, keeping us dry despite water running off a hill and under the tent. As for size, it fit my dad (5'10", 180 lbs) my son (5'11", 140 lbs) and me (5'10", 165 lbs) comfortably with room to spare around our heads and feet. We were each using regular size sleeping pads, and we appreciated the convenience of large vestibules outside the two doors. The additional gear loft is a great option, as well. We found the multiple pockets handy for compasses, glasses, maps, etc. The headlamp pockets were also a nice surprise, turning a headlamp's light into a lantern-like experience for writing in my journal at the end of the day. Each morning we awoke dry and ventilated, happy and impressed by the tent's performance and comfort. I've owned Eureka! tents, REI tents, and a few other off-brand tents; however, this Nemo Equipment Dagger 3P is the best I've owned. It's true to size, lighter than anything I've carried, and it performed exceptionally well in Wilderness conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this tent Have owned it for 4 years. Used it for 30 consecutive nights (400+ miles) on the PCT last summer, plus month long road trip, and many other trips in the rain, snow and sun. It's a little chilly for super cold conditions, but for general 3 season backpacking and car camping it has been great. We've probably pitched it upwards of 200 times. The elastic cords in the poles are getting loose/tired but that doesn't affect stability when the fly is pitched, and they can be replaced. Super happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting - the perfect tent I bought this tent after much research in June 2016. I have taken this tent on multiple trips since, including 3 days on the presidential traverse in NH, 3 days on the pemi-loop in NH, several 2-5 day legs on the long trail in VT, overnight stays at campgrounds in California, a 3 day trip through Yosemite, beach camping in northern California, a couple nights in Acadia, and countless nights on a tent platform lakeside in central NH. Saying that, I have used this tent in several climates and terrains, and it's always held up flawlessly. I'm also about to take it to Olympic NP, the cascades, and Glacier NP. I've never used this tent in the winter, so I can't speak for snow, but I've endured what feels like everything in this tent. Most notably, on the presidential traverse, my boyfriend and I had trouble finding a campsite below treeline on our second night and ended up staying above treeline. For anyone who knows the white mountains in NH, this was clearly a risky choice. We knew this, but we had beautiful sunny weather all day and eventually a beautiful sunset, so we thought we might get luck and miss any testy weather. Around midnight, the worst storm I've ever seen in my life rolled through. Sideways rain, lightning striking the mountains we were on, small hail, we got it all. The Dagger 2P was perfection. We stayed dry and so did all of our gear. We used all of the included stakes and had to use our hiking poles as stakes as well for our extra lines. I've never been more afraid in my life and this tent was perfect. While it would have been nice to have a couple more stakes and extra line for peace of mind, we were in a completely exposed location in a crazy storm and the tent held up with no issues at all. I always use the footprint and the pawprint with this tent. The mesh is awesome. I love sleeping with the rain fly off when the weather permits. It is also so easy to set this tent up, it's much faster than I would have expected. The overhead pockets are a nice plus. I debated buying the insert that clips into the top of the tent, but haven't needed more pocket space. It is very easy to shake this tent out as well before packing it up. I usually just open both doors after taking the rain fly off and pick up the tent by the poles and shake out any dirt or sand that made it's way into the bathtub bottom. For me, this tent is light enough that I've been happy to carry it on the occasional solo trip as well.

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.

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!
