Always nice to get more space and less weight. Nice upgrade

Which Nemo model is it? I've been very impressed with their gear so far.

Think the model I have is two years old. I am sold on this thing.
Packs smaller than my sleeping bag, and weighs 3 pounds.

When you want to use your poles for hiking during the day, do you just remove them, then tuck them back into position as tent supports in the evening, and the tent remains tight? (Assuming tent is to be in same spot for more than one night.)

Looks nice!

Yes the tent would just lay flat, has 6 stakes holding it down.
And yes just slide them back in place and it is tight.


They do offer poles but that adds weight.

throwback design. good idea weight wise. would be tough to pitch on hard ground, rocky areas.

I found a light weight hammer to take for hard ground cut it down to 5 oz.
I had a hard time at GRN last year so upgraded my stakes.
