Why We Like The NEMO Hornet Elite OSMO Tent

When we need our pack to be light but our shelter to be reliable, we trust the NEMO Hornet Elite OSMO Tent. This minimalist one-person tent uses a proprietary OSMO fabric that fights off moisture from rain and dew without stretching so that we wake up feeling fresh and our gear stays dry through any weather. This highly technical fabric is made from GRS-certified recycled content, and it keeps us covered without the use of PFCs, PFASs, and fire-retardant chemicals.


  • Lightweight tent designed for missions where every ounce counts
  • OSMO fabric repels water, limits stretch, and handles abrasion
  • OSMO made from GRS-certified 100 percent recycled yarns
  • 39in interior height allows you to move around comfortably
  • Nightlight pocket turns your headlamp into a room-filling lantern
  • Rectangular stuff sack slips effortlessly into backpacking packs
  • Aluminum poles balance weight savings with reliability

The right tent for me!

I was using the Nemo Aurora 2p tent, but it was just too heavy. So, I upgraded to the Hornet Elite 1p tent. This is a small tent, too small to keep your pack inside if you are using a 25-inch pad. I knew this prior to buying and have no problem with it. The vestibule is big enough for my pack and shoes. Weight was an important factor in this purchase, so I am very happy with this tent. I recently took this on a hike in upstate Pa and this tent performs well in rain and wind. There were 20 mph winds all night and I had no problems. It rained almost all night, and the bathtub was as dry as could be. I had zero condensation issues and the outside of tent dried quickly after the rain stopped. My gear stayed dry in the vestibule also. Set up was as easy as could be and this tent packs down small if you keep the tent poles separate in the allotted bag. I would definitely recommend this tent to anyone looking to save weight or are looking to purchase a semi freestanding tent that is durable. Thank you, Nemo!

Problem Solver

8/1/23 Used this tent on many packing forays. It's light, easy assembly; held up. even in wind. Recently took this tent to RMNP to camp. The green fly cover got a little wet over night, but with another, shook out moisture and hung to dry. Dried very fast too. Mine is a veteran of many years and trips. It has not disappointed, I am very, very careful handling it and am careful with zippers. Being UL, it is fragile. Recommend. I place tent inside pack and carry close to back; the poles and stakes in pocket outside then compress all down to not loose. I keep poles and stakes AWAY from fabrics. Also I have a Footprint which I removed from packet and folded inside pack. I recommend using one, as it not only helps against ground chill but further protects tent. It's rugged and can take the squishing inside your pack, and you. Like the Light pocket ( I use my head lap) on inside tent ceiling and little pocket on tent interior, right, for cell phone. The green fly is visible and the whole thing lovely and I value it highly. I am a 71 yr old female and like the light carry.

Very lightweight, durable, well designed tent

My Hornet Elite OSMO has been an excellent tent so far. Roomy ( I bought the two person), easy to set up and take down, plenty of thoughtful little design features like color coding of the poles and their inserts on the tent, clips to hold the doors open. I like free standing tents and this one seems to be a good one in all respects. I wouldn't have minded a pocket or two but that's a quibble and is also extra weight. Great job!
