Description

Two is company.

Ample floor space, weatherproofing, and a strong, reliable design make the NEMO Obi 2 Person 3 Season Tent one seriously versatile trail shelter. Like a martial artist, this tent brings everything to the table and wastes nothing. Because the Obi weighs just three pounds means you won't even have to split the components with a partner when you're backpacking.

  • Waterproof tent fabric fends off the elements without leaving you feeling stifled by condensation inside
  • Bathtub-style floor provides extra side coverage and allows for cutouts in the fly to reduce weight
  • Mesh canopy vents well and provides panoramic views when the weather's clear
  • Two large side-entry doors make exits and entrances easier, and the additional vestibule coverage provides your gear with protection from the rain
  • DAC Featherlite poles stand up to abuse and keep weight to a minimum
  • Pole hubs at the front and rear of the tent eliminate the number of necessary poles, thus lowering weight without affecting structural stability
  • Dry-bag style stuff sack, lightweight inner storage pocket, stakes, and repair kit are all included
  • Footprint available separately

These were perfect little tents for a multi sport adventure. We traversed a portion of the Uintas' north slope on mountain bikes, connecting segments of trail with trout streams. The Nemo Obi tents were light enough, but gave us all the protection we needed from the unrelenting thunderstorms.

NEMO Obi tent - 2 person

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My brother and I used this tent for a 4 day mountain bike trip. I like the packable size, and splitting it up between two people makes it a super light setup. Its definitely tight in there with two guys over 6ft, so I wouldn't want to share this tent with someone I didn't like. Each person gets a door and a vestibule which helps a lot in such tight quarters. The tent held up well to the pouring rain which we encountered every day. I'd recommend it if you want a light, minimalist, functional setup. If you are concerned with space, check out the three man version.

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".

Totally Ninja

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

First off, this wasn't a cheap tent. It took me a while before I bit the bullet and swallowed my pride to plunk down some serious coin on this thing. It came down to this tent and the BA Fly Creek for a ultra-light shelter for me and my 65-70lb German Shepherd. We're planning a Colorado Trail Thru-Hike and this shelter ended up being just what I was looking for in a super lightweight 3 season shelter. The dual vestibules make the otherwise rather cramped interior volume that much more usable. The twin entry/exit keep the dirt my pooch brings in off my expensive down sleeping bag and fragile NeoAir matress.

In use, the thing stands up to constant downpore rather well. On a training hike we had two days of sustained raining and not a single drop made it's way into the tent. The dual vents in the fly do well at venting the moisture put out by my huffin' and puffin' dog. In more moderate conditions open up the fly and this thing breathes! A nice flow of air comes from the fly design near the head of the tent and out through the vestibule opening(s).

Another feature I liked was the optional accessories avail. for this tent. Nemo specificly makes a footprint, speciality dog liner for the interior, and a gear loft. Very customizeable.

And best of all, the weight and packability of this thing!! It's NUTS! I've never seen a two person shelter pack down to the size not much larger than a Nalgene (minus poles). Even the poles are shorter than other tents in my quiver. Trail weight is about as light as you're going to find as well.

Flawless Victory!

Awesome Tent!

Love the design of the tent! Very breathable, and super comfortable. The tent itself is a little small for 2 people for me, as I'm 6'5", but it's not terrible. Love the vestibules, very roomy and able to stuff a lot of gear under them! Tent tensions very nicely, and pitches TIGHT. Nemo makes awesome tents, and their attention to detail is impeccable. The stuff sacks they come with are awesome, and allow you to just simply stuff the tent and go. It functions as a drybag, so you'll have a dry tent, either way!
