The Details


When every ounce counts, extreme minimalists choose the Hornet™ Elite. Part of NEMO’s Elite line-up of superiorly technical ultralight equipment, the Hornet™ Elite relies on top shelf fabrics and a minimal pole structure to shave every ounce possible.

The 2-Person is a mere 1 pound and 12 ounces, and yet provides maximum livable space through volumizing guy-outs and large doors and vestibules. The 1-Person sheds a few more ounces to make its mark as the lightest freestanding tent in the NEMO line-up. Both tents get lighter yet when you split the load with a partner using the unique Divvy™ dual-stage stuff sack.

Best Use
  • 2-Person is the lightest freestanding tent with two doors and two vestibules.
  • Generous doors and vestibules provide more coverage in the rain.
  • Unique Divvy™ dual stage stuff sack makes it easy to divide the load with a partner.
  • Lightweight, durable TipLock™ pole anchors lock pole tips in place, making for easy single-person setup.
  • Volumizing guyouts connect the inner tent to the rainfly, pulling the sidewalls of the inner tent outward to create more livable space.
  • Triangulated volumizing guyouts at corners increase interior space by up to 15% using included volumizing clips.
  • Light Pockets™ turn your headlamp into a tent lantern.
  • Hubbed pole intersections create a single pole for quick setup and minimize pole weight.
