Best Answer Responded on

Yes, if you keep the doors zipped. You won't get any in through the fabric.

The Nook uses MSR's best materials (only the Carbon Reflex 1,2,3 and Nook uses these materials). It is a very tightly woven material using very small threads. The result is a light weight, but strong tent material (20D, 330T). The mesh is unique as well because it is a 20D thread (unlike most who use 30D). This results in a softer hand, slightly lighter weight, and tinier holes for bugs to get through. The smallest bugs (no-see-ums) can't get through so you should be free from bugs IF you keep the door closed. It is exceptional in being lightweight, but roomy for this class of tents.
