With mud caked on your legs, and fresh air in your lungs, you realize that sometimes that’s all you really need to feel alive.
You travel light; everything you need is right on your back. You love the trail; your feet carry you wherever you want to go. Your eyes see beauty right in front of you, breathtaking at every turn. You travel fast, and pack small. You’re a pro – you don’t need those extra socks, or that cushy pad. You just need the raw, unmasked experience. Just the shoes on your feet, the pack on your back, and a heart full of adventure.
Pack light. Bring only what you need. Love every step.
When what you want is almost nothing at all, our minimalist gear works harder to shave ounces. Here are few of our favorites.
Our new Dragonfly™ fills the void for most backpackers with an ideal balance of weight and livability in a freestanding tent. The large trapezoidal vestibules are designed to fit gear without obstructing entry and have multiple roll-back points to customize visibility and coverage.
Hornet™ Elite is the ultralight tent of choice for extreme minimalists wanting the best in technical materials and design. Our new patent-pending Flybar™ adds even more room without adding any weight.
Ultralight Men’s Kyan™ and Women’s Azura™ define the high-end premium synthetic sleeping bag, offering ultra-compressibility without sacrificing warmth.
This 45°F backless quilt is ideal for ultralight treks where weight and versatility matter; it takes away everything extra without taking away the promise of a warm and draft-free night’s sleep.
The Switchback™ delivers a warmer, more comfortable sleep than other classic closed-cell foam sleeping pads in an industry-leading packed size. Hexagonal nodes are molded with a dual-density Axiotomic™ foam to create Hypnoelastic™ zones that conform to your body in a perfect balance of comfort and support.
The Tensor™ insulated ultralight sleeping pad is the minimalist’s best friend and the lightest pad in the NEMO line-up. It offers 3” of back-saving, cushioned sleep with a paltry weight and pack size. Spaceframe™ Baffles mean you don’t have to sacrifice comfort or stability in the backcountry.
Ultralight stakes have never been so smart. The Airpin’s three-point locking system holds cord tight and eliminates the need for knots, cord locks or guyout tensioners.
The award-winning NEMO Fillo™ Elite backpacking pillow takes clever design to the next level. This ultralight version of the Fillo™ is a fraction of the weight and size, yet still offers a soft sleeping experience.
Preparation is key when going off the grid for a bit. Take your time to devour some packing lists before you set out on your trek.
