Why We Like The NEMO Dagger OSMO Tent

We head off into the woods with the Dagger OSMO Tent for its reliable design we know will help us out when sleeping away from home. It uses NEMO's high-performance, 100 percent recycled OSMO fabric that is both water- and stretch-resistant without the use of PFCs, PFASs, or fire-retardant chemicals. This ensures pools of water won't pile up on the canopy then leave us drenched like a coach after winning a football game. Plus, specialized vestibule vents provide even more utility in the rain because they're placed where air may enter but water won't.


  • Dependable tent for overnight backpacking or camping
  • Proprietary OSMO fabric is GRS-certified, water-repellant, and fast drying
  • Durable and color-coded DAC Featherlite NSL poles make setup easy
  • Two doors and vestibules gives easy access and lots of storage
  • Overhead Nightlight Pocket lets you toss a headlamp in for lighting
  • Ventilation atop vestibules allows airflow even when it's raining
  • New Divvy Cube stuff sack packs it tight when not split across packs
  • Storage tubs in the vestibules protect equipment from the elements (not included)

Awesome Tent!

Great tent! materials are very lightweight yet feel durable. Only took it out twice so far but definitely is more than adequate for myself as a short trip backpacker. Squeezing two people in it is definitely doable, and the two doors come in handy. Very easy set up - everything is color coded and clips right into place. Love it!

Flimsy - very disappointed.

I bought this tent after a lot of research. I have used other Nemo products and always been impressed so I figured this tent would also be impressive. Unfortunately the tent developed a large hole on the bottom after 10 uses. I used a footprint and before setting the tent up I always looked over the ground and removed any sticks, rocks, ect. Regardless, I still got a large hole on the bottom of the tent! For such a pricey tent, I am very disappointed, and frankly angry, that it damages so easily. I don’t feel like I can rely on this tent in the backcountry and ultimately, I feel like it was a big waste of money. I will say that Nemo did offer to fix it when I asked, but because I’m from Canada I would have to ship it and cover the costs - adding more expense to a tent that has already shown to be too fragile to stand up to regular use. Nemo sent me some patches free of charge instead. I am glad they did, but it doesn’t address the fact that the tent is not durable enough to be used for what it was designed for.

Worked in thunderstorm

Bought this tent for backpacking with my wife. On our very first trip it worked for us in a severe thunderstorm without even flinching or using guy lines. I did use MSR ground hog stakes but that was it everything else was what came with the tent. Definitely actually high enough for two people. Had good ventilation all night long as well and enough room. For reference I am 5’11 200 and my wife is 5’5 150.

Worked in severe thunderstorm

I bought this tent for backpacking with my wife and on our very first trip it was put to the test. The two person version is definitively big enough for you and someone you’re close to and you have enough room to sleep without touching but just a few inches between each other and I had a few inches at the end of the tent. For context I’m 5’11 195 pounds and my wife is 5’5 150 pounds. We set up and staked out the tent fully without using any guy lines and the very first night were caught in a severe thunderstorm. There was intense rain, lightning, and 20-30 mile winds for several hours before it died down and the tent didn’t even flinch. It handled the weather with ease, no leaking whatsoever, and we had good ventilation as well with no condensation. It dropped from the 80s to the 40s at night. That night is when I realized how important it is to have gear you can depend on and as of now I have complete faith in my Nemo Dagger Osmo. Keep in mind my tent wasn’t even using guy lines either. I did use MSR ground hog stakes so I can’t speak on the stakes that come with the tent and I had the dagger groundsheet as well. Once you attach it to the bottom of the tent you can just leave it attached when you tear it down so you don’t have to worry about it ever again. The vestibules on either side were roomy enough for my gear and my wife’s and it kept everything dry. The pockets inside are convenient and the nightlight pocket for your headlamp actually works and isn’t a gimmick. The tent is easy to carry between two people but probably a little much by yourself. I would still personally use this for solo backpacking but think others would find it heavy.

Great product

I purchased the 3P verson of this tent and have only had it for about a month now but can say its a solid tent. I like all the features that are included and it is perfect gor backpacking with a friend or partner. I feel like they really put alot of thought into the design and enginuity due to getting everything you could want for a trip without sacrificing anything ypu wish the yent offered. I would recomend this to anyone if they go backpacking often.

Very spacious and lightweight tent. Plenty of room for two wide sleeping pads with room to spare for extra gear. It’s been great on backpacking trips as well as car camping trips.

Lots of Space, great weight, and thoughtful design

First tent purchase in 8 years so I put in a lot of research. The Dagger Osmo is the best 3 person option out there for my needs. Great weight and tons of livability. I was pretty surprised by the ventilation and no condensation on the first use. The poles and stakes are both high quality and I plan to take this shelter on a lot of trips!

Great Tent but...

I have only had the chance to use my Dagger OSMO 3P 4 nights in temps ranging from 80 degrees F (that was the low!) to 40 degrees F. The hot night I was in my tent I had the fly on because there was a few rain squalls that rolled through our Scouts BSA Camporee. No big deal. I was nice and dry inside the tend except for the puddle of sweat I was sleeping in. I had the tent as vented as much as I could given the chance of rain and my PNW blood doesn't do well in the hot temperatures. On the few cooler nights I had the fly fully steaked out (again PNW). The tent kept the rain out but the two fly vents weren't enough to keep the condensation away. The inside of my fly was damp to say the least. A little more ventilation would have been nice. The biggest problem with the tent is the bag. I struggle every time to roll it up tight enough to get it into the bag and there is no way you can fit the footprint in with the tent. I know weight is important when selling a tent but an ounce of fabric to make a slightly larger bag would be nice. I'm looking for a replacement bag now so I can pack it a little easier and it's not so compressed in the off season. Anyone know where I can find the tent bag MSR uses for the Hubba Hubba?

New OSMO fabric is a game changer

I've put it through the wringer

The Osmo fabric on this new Dagger is incredible. Stronger and so much less stretch when wet in the early morning dew. Also all the color coding on poles and webbing make it super easy to set up this tent. Also something not mentioned much is the new gear storage tub in the vestibule is awesome. Removable as well if you want to go faster and lighter. Oh and its all from 100% recycled material! Highly recommend and i've slept in this tent many nights!
