Already the ultimate tent for extreme minimalists, Hornet Elite OSMO takes it to the next level with thoughtful updates and Nemo's new proprietary OSMO™ fabric. Delivering 4x more lasting water repellency and 3x less stretch when wet, the new OSMO tent fabric is also made from 100% recycled yarns free from any PFC or PFAS. The first of its kind, it was carefully designed for both exceptional performance and reduced impact on the planet.

The Elite moniker means Nemo has examined every detail of this tent for weight savings and performance enhancement. The poles are top-shelf DAC Featherlite. Every stitch, cord, and webbing detail is optimised for weight and strength. The Nightlight Pocket™ headlamp diffuser adds a warm glow at night without the weight of built-in lighting. And Nemo's patent-pending Flybar™ volumising pole clip brings headroom to the interior volume without adding unnecessary ounces. The Hornet Elite OSMO tent also features Nemo's convenient new Gatekeeper™ door tie-back and a Divvy Cube™ rectangular stuff sack that nests more efficiently in your pack and allows you to split the weight with a partner. By driving technology and design forward, NEMO’s Hornet Elite OSMO is a maximalist approach to minimalist design.
