A light 3-season tent for you and your two best friends.
One person is good, two people are a conversation, and three people make it a party. When you have the Nemo Equipment Obi 3-Person 3-Season Tent with Footprint, take the good times with you into the backcountry and at the campsite. Weighing in at just over 4 pounds, the Obi offers reliable 3-season protection and easy transportation in your pack or in your trunk.
Attention to detail is evident in the design, as this tent illustrates efficiency and durability. Hub-pole construction makes set-up a snap regardless of the weather, and stable even when the Santa Anas start to blow. If the forecast calls for gusts of wind and driving rain, use the included stakes to anchor the tent to the ground, lest you wind up in the land of Oz. Two vestibules offer loads of space for out-of-tent gear storage, helping prevent broken bones or twisted tendons suffered during mad bathroom dashes to the bushes. Two options for entry or egress accompany the dual vestibules, meaning you're not stepping on your tentmates as you creep out for some nighttime star shots.
A bathtub-style floor reduces weight in addition to providing protection from swampy campsites or rising waters. If you're not needing full-tent protection, just take with the fly and footprint. Snap the pole ends into Jake's Feet corner anchors, string up the fly, and enjoy the breeze all night long. Spring through fall, you can car camp with your honey and pooch, take your friends on a introductory hike, or sleep snugly with all of your gear inside the Obi 3-season 3-person tent.

I was considering this tent for two person...
I was considering this tent for two person use for high country elk hunting. The listing shows the OBI 3P tent with Footprint.
What does the footprint weigh? Is that weight included in the listed trail weight 4 .lbs 13 oz.? Please advise.
I ordered this ordered this from BC in Dec 2013. I have since weighed it myself and came up with the following
NEMO Obi 3P Poles In Sack 1 lb 2.2 oz
NEMO Obi 3P Stakes In Sack 0 lb 4.4 oz
NEMO Obi 3P In Sack 3 lbs 3.8 oz
Total 4 lbs 10.4 oz
NEMO Obi 3P Footprint in Sack 0 12.6 oz
So far I love this tent. I camp with a dog so I now have the Pawprint also. Great idea. Have slept two adults and 75 lbs German Shepherd no problem.
My first impressions...!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I gotta say, I'm impressed! Perfect for a family of three with plenty of room left at my sons feet for the dog. Headroom is perfect but none of us are over 5'11 so that's a subjective plus. Personally, living in Florida makes it essential for a tent to breath and still keep us dry. Its December and temps should be in the high 60s at night by the end of the week. I was very pleasantly surprised that both doors on each vestibule open all the way without needing the top removed. That and the ability to vent thru the vestibule doors while shut means air flow is excellent. Since it can rain cats and dogs for 5 minutes and then get very hot and humid, I found this to be a huge selling point. The vestibules are just big enough to be useful and the lower cut entry way made getting in and out much easier then my espri or gogo. The angle allows you to basically just stand up without throwing yourself out to avoid the fly. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a double wall tent who lives in a place that gets hot. I'm not saying it isn't for cold weather, I'm just saying that's not why I bought it and that's not why I'm keeping it.
