Make some room on the podium. NEMO’s 4-season, extreme conditions shelter, Tenshi has been given Editors’ Choice Award by Climbing Magazine in their latest winter issue.
Field Editor, Jeff Hollenbaugh, had this to say:
“Often, new gear falls into one of two new catagories: An improvement on an old proven design, or an innovative approach that has yet to stand the test of time… The Tenshi clearly fits in the former of the above-mentioned categories, expanding and improving upon the Bibler I-Tent’s legendary design, which is exceedingly simple, yet very strong, and emphasizes minimizing weight and footprint. More than once, however, I’ve been left wondering why I even bothered to zip my I-Tent when as soon as I open the door I would find a pile of snow in my lap. The Tenshi’s retractable vestibule efficiently resolves this issue. Another simple yet effective Tenshi feature is the condensation curtain. This light 40-denier-nylon curtain hangs near your shoulders, sealing off the remainder of the tent from the water vapor you respirate while sleeping. An optional, removable, insulated floor covers the tent’s entire floor, held in place by the poles, making living space much more comfortable during expedition use.”
Representing the best and newest this year had to offer, TIME Magazine recognized NEMO AirSupported Technology(tm) among the top contenders of 2005. Aiming to change the way people think about backcountry shelters, NEMO stunned the editors at TIME Magazine by the speed and simplicity of the tents’ design. Read more here.

After 450km, 8700m of elevation gain/loss and 68hours and 49min of racing, the NEMO sponsored Spanish team, Buff/Nike, crossed the finish line to win one of the world’s most grueling adventure races.
Team Captain, Emma Roca sent NEMO an estatic email saying she was very excited to have won the race and wanted to know if we could send more t-shirts! She also wanted to get a sneak peak at the 2006 Hypno AR… for everyone else, you’re going to have to wait until ’06 (unless you happen to win a 450km adventure race).
Emma Roca and Team Buff/Nike ACG will be carrying Hypno AR during their next race later in November:
AR World Championships in New Zealand.

Tenshi, NEMO’s 4-season extreme conditions shelter, receives rave review in the latest issue of Rock & Ice to hit newstands:
“The two-person, single-walled NEMO Tenshi is a breath of condensation-free air. Alongside many pioneering features (brainstormed by NEMO’s engineering genius, Cam Brensinger) and borrowing the best of previous tent innovations, the Tenshi is an austere but commodious marquee… While testing it, I encountered gusts of 55 mph, but the tall Tenshi stood stalwart with minimal flapping.”
