Nemo's Hornet 2P Tent is a spacious light-weight 2 person shelter. The Hornet is quick and simple to set up and has a useful feature set.

Nemo says:

For those looking for a ultralight shelter with greater volume, Hornet™ offers the ultimate in livability and comfort. Top shelf fabrics and a minimal pole structure shave every ounce possible, while our latest updates and new patent-pending Flybar™ volumizing clip add even more room without adding any weight.

The single pole construction allows for lightning quick setup and minimal pole weight. Triangulated reflective guy outs and corner struts increase volume at the foot, protecting sleeping bags from tent wall condensation. The 2-Person has two doors and two vestibules for 30 ounces, and the 1-Person weighs in at an ethereal 26 ounces. Split the load with a partner using the unique Divvy™ dual-stage stuff sack to further lighten your pack.

Nemo's Hornet 2P Tent is a spacious light-weight 2 person shelter.  The single pole set system makes it very quick to set up. The head room is generous at the middle of the tent but the height isn't maintained across the width of the tent like with the slightly heavier Nemo Dragonfly. though the patent pending Flybar™ do give you some space. The tent has slightly triangular shape, meaning you would want to make sure which end is the head end when pitching, however the Hornet is sufficiently free standing means its easy to move around when choosing your pitch.

The fly is relatively high off the ground meaning you would need to be cautious which way you pitch when camping in high winds. A useful feature is the extra guyouts enabling you to increase your living space by attaching the inner to the fly. These are quite fiddly but do give you more space.

Other handy features include the 2 side storage pockets and light pocket designed to diffuse the light from your head torch.

Does not like the wind

I have used the tent 4 times in a few weeks in the Lakes. 2 of these have been breezy, not too windy. On these 2 occasions, the wind direction changed mid night, and the tent bucked rather badly, and I was afraid it was going to cave in. On one occasion I attached 3 extra guys to it to stabilise it. Does not like sideways wind. Other than that find it very good. Extremely light, Easy to put up and take down. Great features, such as the space bar, pockets. Was decent enough in the rain. I will mainly be using it therefore as a summer tent.

Please don't waste your money

This tent had sadly proven to have very little weather resistance in my experience. Water loves to ingress up the bathtub floor over the edge and then spray across the mesh. Condensation is a constant issue especially around the cutout section at the head of the tent creating pools of water. Whilst in fine weather the tent is spacious for one, relatively easy to put up. The slightest breeze chills you as the inner does next to nothing to deflect it, especially with how high the fly sits. Highly disappointed at such a costly outlay. At best this is a 1 season tent. A shame after all the research I did and nothing was said about this tents many weaknesses. I can’t recommend anyone to waste their money on it.
