New for 2014! The lightweight and versatile NEMO Switch 1P tent can serve as a solo backpacking ground shelter, a bug net on safari or even as a protected sleeping enclosure on top of a cot (not included). Integrated Corner Retention Straps make attachment to many camp cots quick and easy.
Intended to provide shelter for one, the Switch 1P offers 18 square feet of interior space. When ground pitched, the full coverage rainfly creates an integrated vestibule to provide weather-protected, covered storage space adding up to 12 square feet. An interior mesh Light Pocket is included with the Switch 1P, serving as an out-of-the-way location to stow a headlamp or flashlight to provide diffuse light to the entire tent space at night. Several general-purpose mesh pockets are also included to keep a water bottle and other personal items close by.
A one-piece hubbed DAC 8.7 mm Featherlite NSL aluminum pole set provides the Switch 1P with strong support and makes setup a snap. The freestanding design enables you to pitch the tent and then move it around your chosen campsite to find the optimal rock and root-free position for your Switch 1P, or attach it to your cot for above-the-ground sleeping.
Mesh panels in the walls and ceiling of the Switch 1P allow air to circulate and combat condensation. The weatherproof 70D treated nylon floor combines with the rainfly to protect the interior of the Switch 1P from the elements. Note that the fly can be employed whether the tent is ground pitched or attached to a cot.
Included with the NEMO Switch 1P are a roll-up style stuff sack, guy-out cord, stakes and a repair kit. The NEMO Switch 1P Footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the tent floor from mud, ground water and sharp objects like rocks, exposed roots and pine needles.
