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.
When you want the lightest and smallest packing floored shelter in NEMO’s entire line, go Gogo™. The revolutionary AirSupported Technology™, allows a 15 second set-up and a 5 second take-down.
Hornet™ Elite is the lightest freestanding tent, designed for hardcore minimalists who are counting every ounce. Its superiorly technical top shelf fabrics and a minimal pole structure work to shave every ounce possible.
With it’s backless design, Siren™ is one of the lightest quilt-style sleeping bags on the market, constructed using the highest end fabrics and premium 850FP down for a remarkably light and warm minimalist bag.
The popular NEMO Tango™ merges the concept of a backcountry quilt with the shape of a rectangular bag, for a super compressible, ultralight sleep solution that will keep you warm and comfy.
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.
Keep your cards close at hand in the super-slim clever little Ditto™. This minimalist two-sided sleeve design is small enough to slip into any pocket.
The Fillo™ Elite Luxury backpacking pillow is the ultralight version of our award-winning Fillo™. At a fraction of the weight (less than 4 oz) and packed size, it still offers impressive height and cushion despite its ethereal weight.
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.
