Designed to appeal to true ounce-counters, the streamlined NEMO Hornet Elite 2P tent utilizes ultra-lightweight fabrication and a unique pole geometry to provide 3-season performance at a minimum weight of just 1 pound, 12 ounces!
Two large side-entry doors make entering and exiting the tent easier on the body and create convenient access for two people. Dual vestibules offer 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.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great Solo Tent
Likes: I'm really excited about this tent. I am using it as a solo as I like the extra room for gear and the two doors and vestibules. Its ultra light but has the side doors which are so much easier to negotiate. Super easy set up.
Dislikes: Doors could go a little deeper into the tent body for ease of access. Rain fly could be a less obtrusive color. But those are picky details for the next model. I still highly recommend this tent.
- Very lightweight. Compresses down very small for backpack.
