Product Description

NEMO's Meta tent is a striking example of the efficiency and weight savings possible with a well-designed trekking pole tent. NEMO's products are often cited for their comfort and usability, and Meta tents -- with tall peak heights, generous overall length, and multiple well-placed vents -- certainly continue this standard. Dual vestibules/entries on Meta 2P eliminate jostling for position and gear storage. Reinforced hoops keep the upper vents open at all times, allowing low-to high ventilation. Oversized grommets locate the tips of trekking poles and reinforced areas at the top of the tent receive the pole handles. A fixed webbing length to the vestibule anchor makes setup quick and straightforward, while the unique vestibules on the Meta 2P overhang the inner tent so they can be rolled back out of the way in light rain, allowing air to flow freely through the tent. Clever side vents promote cross ventilation, funnel condensation out of the tent, and provide extra headroom when guyed out.

Nemo makes a great tent. This tent is designed to be used with trekking poles. It weighs in at 3 lbs when it is packed down into its waterproof sack. It is a single wall, no see-um mesh, hybrid tent. It has two, very roomy vestibules. Set up is easy and once it is correctly tensioned, the structure is solid. There is adequate ventilation to prevent condensation from forming inside the tent. There are two vents located in the tent walls (one on either end)which are adjustable and the pole pockets are vented. This does not mean condensation won't form, ever. Under the right conditions it will form, but a small microfiber towel will get rid of it. Also the wall vents are designed to channel condensation out of the tent if it does start running down the walls. I set it up in my backyard and slept in it. The overnight low dropped to about 47F and there was slight condensation forming toward the peak. Not much however. Once the sun hit that part of the tent, the condensation quickly dried. The interior floor space is incredible for a tent this size. Most backpacking tents taper from head to toe in an effort to cut back on the overall weight but this tent is a perfect rectangle with no taper. It's designed for two persons to sleep opposite of eachother, in a head to toe configuration. For one person use, like I use it, the space is outstanding. I'm 6 ft tall and have no issues with my head or feet touching the tent sides. There is a very neat feature with regards to the vestibules. There is an additional, attached cord, which attaches to a loop in the trekking pole pocket. Once tensioned, this cord allows the user to open both vestibule halves completely for maximum ventilation. This design is incorporated on both vestibules.Read more ›

Have had this tent for close to three years now. I was an early adopter. It's been to several different locales and climes, even up Mt. Adams in WA State to Lunch Counter at the 9000 ft level--twice. This is quite a tent. As with all trekking items, there are some compromises of comfort for weight, however, this tent seems to have the fewest of those that I've researched and/or seen in action.

The use of trekking poles for tent poles: Genius. The two huge vestibules with entrances on either side for true two-man utility: Also genius. The vestibules basically solve the gear stowage problems from which so many multi-man ultralight tents suffer. There is enough interior room at 37 sq. ft. for two average-sized adults in head to foot configuration to sleep comfortably with their sleeping bags not jammed up against the tent wall or each other and their gear stowed out of the weather in their respective vestibules.

With the tent guyed properly there is decent (but not great--it's a single wall) ventilation and interior head space along with stability. I'm not going to pronounce this thing a four-season mountaineering tent but hey, it's plenty stable and dry if you carefully select your pitch location and set it up properly with an eye to wind-direction, guying, vent patentcy, moisture and gravity. I didn't take it up to Lunch Counter a second time just because it was light...

The biggest problem for all trekking tents is weight. This one is around 3 lbs. Problem solved. If you can't carry or fit that, head straight to the nursing home.

The next biggest problem is interior space. At 37 sq. ft. of interior space and 22 sq. ft. of vestibule, no 2-man, sub-4 lb. tent even comes close. Problem solved.

Another issue is condensation.

This tent was purchased specifically as a shared tent to be used on a multi-day backpacking trip in the Sierra. The primary reason for purchasing was the low weight (2 person fully enclosed shelter for only 3lbs) and the fact that it uses trekking poles instead of tent poles.

The packaging is refreshingly well thought-out, with compression straps to keep it small, and it's very easy to get it into and out of the stuff sack. The one thing that surprised me, was the fact that there are no instructions, (at least not with the one I purchased). It's a little different than most tents out there, so someone who is not overly familiar with tents may struggle to get the pitch just right.

It's fairly roomy, yet if not pitched correctly, the "head and feet" ends will sag a bit, and might be a bit short if you are over 6 feet tall, (I am 5'9", so it's fine for me). The vestibules are huge, and with each person having their own entrance and vestibule, you won't have any problem storing your gear within the vestibules.

It's not made of silnylon, so it doesn't stretch throughout the night, and is surprisingly quiet, even in wind, which is a nice bonus. It's a fairly sturdy tent, but it will sway significantly in strong wind. A good snow storm will increase the amount of sagging at the "head and feet" ends of the tent, but I am still comfortable using this as an overall 3 season tent, even well into shoulder seasons. With that said, you are going to have to add extra guy lines if you intend to use it somewhere very windy, (like Trail Camp on Mt. Whitney). It can replace a tent with traditional poles, but you will need to get a little creative with extra guy lines, using rocks, etc. to reinforce the corner guys.
