WE’RE ON A MISSION TO DESIGN PRODUCTS THAT ENSURE Adventure Forever.

Performance
Planet

We refuse to sacrifice quality in the pursuit of sustainability, and OSMO is the embodiment of that commitment. With this new suite of fabrics, we’ve managed to improve the key characteristics of tent fabric — waterproofness and strength — while reducing the negative impact our products have on the environment. 

How OSMO™ Makes an Impact

Recycled Yarns

OSMO is comprised of 100% recycled polyester and nylon fibers woven together — a material choice that creates a 5 kg CO2e reduction for every kg of OSMO fabric produced.

PFAS-Free

The physical benefits of the yarns used in OSMO make it inherently hydrophobic, or averse to water absorption. Because of this, we can avoid using an additional PFAS coating but still ensure dryness.

bluesign®

We work with bluesign® technologies, the leaders in responsible chemical management, to trace and reduce resource consumption in our material supply chain.

FRC-Free

By removing fire-retardant chemicals from the process, we’re avoiding any potentially negative health impacts to our manufacturers and consumers. Also, eliminating this step cuts out all carbon associated with it!

Lasting Durability

We’ve created a fabric that’s 20% stronger and more resistant to hydrolysis, meaning it will withstand more rainstorms, wind, guy-outs, and more. The longer you can use our products, the less waste we send to a landfill.

An Innovation 2 Years in the Making

At NEMO, we try to live by the ethos (and well-loved bumper sticker) “Design Like You Give a Damn.” That’s why we thought through every element of OSMO — from the individual threads to the coatings and weave — before sending it to market. Gear nerds: Read on to learn exactly how OSMO works!

NEMO Introduces 100% Recycled, PFC-Free OSMO Fabric

OSMO is made from recycled polyester and nylon yarns and backed with a polyurethane coating for waterproofness. The blend of nylon and polyester isn’t common in a tent fabric, and according to NEMO, it offers the best of both fabrics in terms of durability, weight, stretch, and water absorption.
