Great tent!

I bought this tent for the JMT since my old tent had gotten messed up on a trip like 2 weeks before starting. I had originally just had the old version of the Nemo hornet and loved it, but needed a new tent. I wasn’t planning on getting the elite but it was the only one available last minute. But I’m so so glad I did! It was so light and insanely easy to set up. Everything that wasn’t my favorite about my old tent was fixed on this one! It only has one fly bar instead of two, these little things to be able to roll up your rainfly and mesh door and secure it, and the little tabs to click in your tent poles are a lot nicer now instead of the old plastic ones. I also really love how much netting there is. The only thing I didn’t like was I missed the black netting top to see the stars easier, and when I got my tent the mesh had come with a few pulls that slowly started to spread. I fixed it by getting clear duct tape and putting it on both sides of the pull and it hasn’t had any issues since! It was just annoying that it came with that. It ended up thunder storming during my trip and it was nonstop pouring rain (and wind) all night and my tent held up great! I didn’t get wet or condensation. I never had to readjust the guylines or stakes or anything. It was perfect! I also never got condensation, and had a lot of windy nights with no issues. Overall a great tent and I’m really glad I ended up getting it, especially since it’s so light! Side note, I used it as one person for the 2p and would definitely not recommend 2p in it. Like I’m 5’3 and just having my backpack in there with me took up so much space. I couldn’t imagine another person in there long term. Overall a great tent and would definitely recommend.

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!

Great Backpacking Tent!

I've put it through the wringer

This tent is insanely light at just about 2lbs packed weight. It's equipped with two doors, it's 3-season, it's spacious, and it is so easy to set up. The OSMO fabric has changed the tent game!
