Despite its ultra-lightweight (minimum weight of 2 pound, 0 ounces) design focus, the non-freestanding Blaze 2P backpacking tent also delivers a surprising amount of livability due to its truly innovative pole configuration and smart triangulated guyout points.
Measuring 85” x 50”, the tent has a 30 square foot floor area. Dual side entry doors offer convenient access points for up to two backpackers and dual vestibules combine to offer 13 streamlined square feet of external storage space.
A single hubbed-pole design creates a unique architecture that has a small ridge pole section to help maintain the tent’s 41” peak height and increase livability by adding verticality to the side walls. NOTE: This design does require that two of four corner points be staked out. A smart triangulated design on the guyout points in those two corners also helps to maximize internal space.
Fully seam taped construction and PU-coatings on the floor and rainfly ensure protection from the elements. custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to bolster protection against standing water, rocks, and roots.
Each NEMO Blaze 2P backpacking tent includes a stuff sack, guyout cord, stakes, and a repair kit.

Real Customer Reviews
- Solid & roomy tent
Likes: This tent is nice, the old saying "you get what you pay for" really holds true. Vestibules are sufficient for a small pack 40L and shoes. I am 5'7" 150lbs and there is a lot of head room, enough for two people to sit up and play cards. Probably would not recommend for anyone over 5'10". Poles are simple and assembly is straight forward. I've taken it out on one long weekend trip, 2 of the nights it rained and I stayed dry inside. Better ventilation than my 1 person UL tent.
Dislikes: The stakes are not very good, they are cheap Y beams, bent one without realizing it after pushing it in with my flip-flop. I'm also not sold on the non-freestanding part. Two of the corners must be staked out for it to stand up, which I am a bit apprehensive about. Also, the inside pockets should be put on the walls supported by the pole rather than the unsupported side. Putting my phone in the pocket causes it to sag quite a bit.
- Great tent
Likes: This is a very light tent, I love the one pole configuration,
Dislikes: Not as stout as due to one pole design, must be delicate with the fabric.
- Alot of space to weight, alot of volume with design and 40" peak, small annoying issues but no show stopper
Likes: The footprint space is great at 30 sq ft. more than enough room for two, head space volume is the best in UL class especially with 40" peak height, set up simple, door access is convenient , side walls near vertical for entrance easy access to and from tent
Dislikes: the two tie ups per door for door/ fly access are small and hard to manage; the tent ends have a tendency to sag a bit which could be annoying for 6 ft and over ; the staking uses tent stakes to guide out fly would of like two additional stakes for guides on more alternative locations, these items could of easily been remedy with simple additional material in loop and an internal fly guide to the tent to pull out the tent ends to eliminate sagging when ideal conditions are not available
