Nemo's Veda 1P Tent harnesses the power of your trekking poles to support a spacious one person single skin tent with a large vestibule.
Nemo Equipment says:
Veda is a striking example of the efficiency and weight savings possible with a well-designed trekking pole tent. With tall peak heights and a generous overall length, the Veda has great livability.
There is no more efficient way to spend an overnight if you're already carrying trekking poles. The Veda series tents hit the magic combination of weight, packability, and liveability for life on the trail. Details like special wicking fabric above the head manages condensation and huge vestibules that roll back with a shed-style overhang for weather protection and refreshing airflow, make for extreme comfort and usability.
Nemo's Veda 1P tent is a big tent, the head height is more than you would normally find for this category of tent, and the internal floor dimensions are 250 x 90cm - compare this with a typical solo tent which will be around 220 x 70cm and you begin to see the advantage of this type of tent. The height is lost at the end of the tent but Nemo have fitted additional guying points at either end so you can address this.
The second thing to note is the big vestibule which is a great size for solo use allowing lost of room for gear storage, the access to the inner tent avoids the trekking pole supports but it is a bit tight.
So nothings perfect, and this tent being single skin may put people off - but its exactly why I love single skin tents - you get get a much bigger living space even at low weight. If you're worried about condensation, we know this can be a problem in single skin tents but in my experience you only have a problem occasionally and that problem is dealt with easily with a cloth.
Don't buy this tent if you don't use trekking poles, without them its a groundsheet.
