In backpacking, weight economy is a commodity. At just over a pound, the Nemo Spike Storm Tent does its best to lighten the load.
Nemo went minimalist with this one — minimalist in the design, material, and even color… “stalker gray”. Would we expect any other name for a color when this tent was designed with help from hunters and anglers? While the design is simple, it’s packed with plenty of function. Inside you’ll find an overhead headlamp pocket for maximum light diffusion. A reinforced pole pocket avoids premature wear and tear from a very poky hiking pole. And a strategically placed crossbow vent and mesh screen door provides ventilation and protection against insect invaders.
The entire tent including the floor is made from silicone-coated 30D nylon ripstop to combat windy, rainy nights. And it all fits in one easy to stuff 5×9 inch diameter sack — hiking pole not included. – $230
