Gear Review

Light and SMALL

I bought this with the hopes of using it with my girlfriend. We were debating between this and the Big Agnes Copper Spur 2. I decided to go with this as from what I understood it stuffed down smaller and I like Nemo products. It also looked really good. Here's what I found...

The fabric is really thin, and really light. Definitely want a footprint with this. It's pretty easy to set up, the vestibule space is nice. I do not like the jakes foot system or whatever it's called for attaching the poles and clipping on the fly. It was a bit annoying. I could live with the pole system but clipping on the fly was just a pain in the butt. I'd prefer the standard clips over that.

My biggest gripe is that the thing is so small and cramped. That review that says perfect solo +dog tent is spot on. I'm 5'10" and skinny and my girlfriend is 5'7" and with just us and no pads or sleeping bags it felt tight. Very little room inside. That was the dealbreaker for us so I sent it back and I'm grabbing the Big Agnes instead.

Positives for this tent:
Very light, looks good, packs super small (has a stuff sack and the poles clip to it), great breathability, pretty easy to set up.

Cons:
small, weird clip system, pricey

Thanks for the review. I'm going through the same debate. I have the nemo Asashi and love it so I'm swayed toward the obi. I'm considering the obi 3. Please follow up with a BA Copper review. Thanks.

I'm sure you've already made your purchase by now, but for anyone else that might stumble upon this in the future..

I can support Andrew's review that this thing is a bit cramped for two, unless you really want to get close. I can't see how two with gear would work in this tent without a case of domestic violence! Joking..

I'd suggest anyone looking for a tent for two to seriously consider the Obi 3. The Obi series tents really rock (even with the price) but consider sizing up, these certainly run "small".
