Nemo's Hornet 1P Tent is a spacious light-weight 1 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.
