Nemo's Spike 1P trekking pole tent provides a roomy shelter at minimum weight, its floorless so you'll need a groundsheet and it needs a short pole for the back - but its well designed and is a stable structure when pitched in this way.

Nemo says: Designed with guidance from professional backcountry hunters and anglers, the Spike™ 1P trekking pole supported shelter is meant for exploration off the beaten path.

Nemo's Spike 1P Trekking Pole Tent is well thought out and perfect as a shelter if you want to use a bivy bag or just a groundsheet. Its an alternative to a tarp as extra protection when the weather turns poor, but it scores over a tarp by being pitched down to ground level effectively shutting out wind and rain.

You use your trekking poles to give it support and structure though it also needs a short pole at the rear of about 34cm in length, Nemo suggests using a stick for this purpose but frankly there'll not always be one available and it may be prudent to carry one. The top of the rear panel has a reinforced pocket to house one end of the pole so it will take almost any size stick.

Inside at the rear the tent has a sewn in groundsheet - this is good because when using a groundsheet its easy for your feet to slip off in the night risking a wet sleeping bag, with the foot end being closed in the risk is removed.

The front apex is reinforced to take the handles of two trekking poles to create an 'A' frame support - this is very strong and allows easy access into the tent. A cord runs across the tent to provide the tension and keep the 'A' frame in place, there's a similar cord half way down the tent which helps it keep its structure when being pegged out at the sides.

Its a roomy shelter for one person but you need to factor in the weight of a groundsheet and rear pole.

Super light, packs tiny but resassuringly robust

I used this tent in cold frosty conditions so it hasn't had a battering yet. But in essence very light and packs tiny. Replace the 5 pegs with 9 ultralight of your own as Nemo's are far too heavy and you really need another 4 unless you rely on rocks. It seals very well with a low fly and skirt along the sleeping area so it is surprisingly warm. Relatively chunky 30D sil/sil nylon means it actually feels more robust and well made than the specs suggest. Typical Nemo attention to design and construction. I like the 2 way zip, rear groundsheet and the neat torch pocket. Generous length with enough room to store kit and cook. It could perhaps do with being an inch or two wider (the width is preset using dyneema guidelines), as it would help make it more comfortable for shoulder room in future versions Nemo.
