Hornet Ultralight 2P Tent: 2-Person 3-Season

Nemo's Hornet 2P Tent is an ultralight backpacker with personal features for you and your camping partner. Its no-see-um mesh canopy provides plenty of ventilated airflow, while PeU-coated ripstop helps the vestibule, fly, and floor resist abrasion, dirt, and rainfall. The one-piece DAC Featherlite NFL pole offers an easy setup as well as an expanded interior.

Unlike most ultralight tents, the Hornet 2P features two doors so your backpacking buddy doesn't crawl over you in the middle of the night. The tent's stuff sack can hold all the gear, or just the fabrics if you two are going to split the load. Nemo also included guy-out cords, a repair kit, and stakes for the utmost camping convenience.

Great Solo Tent

I've used it several times

I took this tent out on a backcountry hunt this fall. With all my hunting equipment being carried on my back already, a lightweight set up was very important. With mid-teen temperatures and winds of 10-15mph on the ridges expected, It was vital to have a tent that would stand up to the conditions I was putting myself in. This lightweight tent helped me stay right at 65lbs as I hiked in for about 7-8 miles. Setting it up is easy and fairly quick. The fixed poles are lightweight and easy to use. The fly is very interesting. When it is compressed or rolled up, it kind of adheres to itself. When I first opened it up I thought I was going to rip it. But ALAS! it did not tear. It did keep the wind off of me in the bitterly cold mountains. If you are looking to shed some weight in your setup for trecking or packing, this is a great option for you. I am super thrilled I gave this tent a shot. You can shed a little weight (ounces) by not bringing the fly, and by shedding the pole and stake bags, but other than that you are already rocking a sub-2lb tent.

Light But Mighty

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I took this tent backpacking on Mt Whitney and absolutely loved it. I was able to keep my pack at 40lbs (even with climbing gear). Set up is extremely easy, and tent held up well to wind, rain and snow! Spacious enough for two people to fit comfortably. Would recommend to anyone who is going UL backpacking!

Awesome UltraLight Backpacking Tent!!!

I've used it several times

There was a lot of thought put into the design of this tent. It tapers at the feet and has the 3 pole system to save weight, along with some other cool features. The stuff sack is designed so that you can split the load; one person carries the stakes and poles and one person carries the tent and fly. My other 2 person backpacking tent weighs 5-6 lbs, so switching to an ultralight tent that weighs 1-2 lbs made a big difference, both in weight and space. All in all, great tent with well thought out features!

Favorite tent

I've put it through the wringer

I own 2 big agnes fly creeks, I've I've slept in a hubba hubba..and this is my favorite. The price is lower, its comparable in weight, and the plastic pole slots and design are just great. I slept in this tent for 2 months in Patagonia, with weeks of rain and was kept dry.

Hey Trevor, Do you have photos of your tent in Patagonia?

Feedback from a friend: "The tent was great to have on my trip. It was warm, light weight, and kept us completely dry through the rain. I would recommend this tent to anyone going to a one or two-person hike."

Fantastic Tent

Tent sack offers compression and the ability to split up poles, body, stakes, and fly inside your pack. Very easy to set up, take down, and fit into stuff sack. Enough space for me and a buddy with two average sized sleeping pads. I’m 5’11 185, buddy was about 5’7” and pretty skinny. Held up well in light rain, appeared as if it would hold up well in heavier wether as well. Ample vestibule space for both doors.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This tent is so light and small, yet durable with plenty of space. This is my go-to backpacking tent because it is so easy to fit in even a day pack. It only weighs 2lbs 6oz and packs to 19.5x5.5 inches.

Game Changer!

I returned this product before using it

This tent is a leader for ultralight backpacking. It would be excellent for one person who wanted more space. It's completely possible for two people to sleep comfortably. The only con: sides taper in, limiting the space to move around with two people.

Nice little tent!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this tent for a backpacking trip across Europe I am taking in the spring. I set it up in my living room and am impressed. Despite how thin the material is, it seems like it is very well made and can stand up to some rough stuff. You do have to stake it out to get all of the square footage you can out of it. It is really easy to set up. It is a small 2 person tent so unless you like to cuddle, it is a 1 person and a dog or a bag. Make sure to get the matching footprint!


How does the UL design hold up in windy/adverse conditions?


Is this the new model with the updates?

The ones that we have on the site are the 2019 model, so they are the most recent!
