UOG TOP PICK - Nemo Spike Storm 1P Tent - We've singled out Nemo's Spike Storm 1P Tent because it is an excellent example of a minimalist tent. With significant changes to the original Spike 1P the Storm is better suited to poor weather with a fully waterproof floor and mesh door. At such a low price point for a tent this light weight it is a winner.

The NEMO Spike Storm 1P is a truly minimalist shelter designed for use off the beaten path. This trekking pole supported shelter weighs just under 530 grams, and is made from silicone-treated fabrics that are stronger and more durable.

Nemo says:

Designed with guidance and testing from professional hunters and anglers, the Spike Storm is a truly minimalist shelter that will get you further off the beaten path. Its trekking pole-supported design is meant to shed every ounce possible, and resulting in a shelter that is just over a pound and packs incredibly small. Silicone-treated fabrics increase strength, durability, and waterproofness, and are free from toxic fire retardants.

Unlike the original Spike floorless minimalist shelter, the Spike Storm has an added floor and mesh door for use with any bag and added protection from insects.

Nemo's Spike Storm 1P Tent is a superlight single skin shelter providing the same minimalist design as the Spike 1P trekking pole structure, but with a floor and mesh door. It's not a whole lot heavier with the added groundsheet and mesh door, and at just under 530 grams some people will prefer the added protection.

You will need to use one of 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 they'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.

Not practical and not so cozy

It is easy to fall for the specs. It sounds as a nice tent at a good price point. Low price-roomy-low weight. However, it is not well thought out. This tent needs seam sealing and doesn't let enough air in so the huge tendens build up condensation making it really unpleasant and the whole idea of enjoying a second nice night is gone. This tent will not be used by me anymore, probably sell it to some festival goer who leave the door open all the time... seam sealing and condensation adds weight and it weighed in at 750g approx when wet and seam sealed.

Better value and better featured than it's predecessor

This version, with a groundsheet & mesh inner door is only a little more expensive than the original floorless, doorless Spike which seems like a no brainer. Contrary to pictures it can be set up 'A frame' style with two walking poles for greater stability & it makes access easier. Robustly made despite it's gossamer weight, it's a thoughtfully designed ultralight shelter. Note; you'll need a couple of extra pegs on top of the supplied 5 to tension guy lines and you'll need to silicon seal some seams; particularly the apex and Nemo badge which is sewn thru the flysheet. I look forward to using it more and updating YouTube with some more trips.
