Designed to appeal to true ounce-counters, the streamlined NEMO Hornet Elite 1P tent utilizes ultra-lightweight fabrication and a unique pole geometry to provide 3-season performance at a minimum weight of just 1 pound, 7 ounces!
A large side-entry door makes entering and exiting the tent easier on the body. A vestibule offers space to stow gear and better coverage from the rain. An internal storage pocket utilizes light-diffusing fabric to turn a headlamp (sold separately) into a lantern capable of illuminating the interior of the tent.
A single hubbed-pole design creates free-standing support without adding bulk or undue weight. NEMO has positioned the front pole hub overhead which creates more interior volume without the need for an additional ridge pole. Corner guyout points with a unique triangulated design at the “foot” of the tent can be staked-out to maximize internal space or left un-staked for weight savings.
A raised waterproof bathtub-style floor enhances performance in poor weather and also cuts down on wear-and-tear. Fully seam taped construction and the PU-coated Sil Nylon rainfly further bolster weather protection. A custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to offer additional protection against standing water rocks and roots.
Each NEMO Hornet Elite 1P backpacking tent includes a stuff sack, guyout cord, stakes, and a repair kit.

Real Customer Reviews
- Love this tent!
Likes: Spacious for a UL 1p tent. Packs down small. Very light. Great option if you don't want to go to a trekking pole tent but still want the weight savings. Do recommend you get the Footprint (uses the same footprint as the Nemo Hornet 1p.
- Super light weight
Likes: Easy setup for a tent of this weight and size. The single pole is great. The inside has a decent amount of room, again for it being ultra light. It compacts down very small too, amount 1 liter water bottle size if you keep the pole separate.
Dislikes: Really expensive.
