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.

Absolute rubbish

This tent is absolutely abominable. Like a previous reviewer stated, it's easy to fall for the specs, but when you actually try and use this tent night after night in mixed terrain, my God you end up paying for those specs dearly. First and foremost, in the pics of the tent on this and Nemos site there are guy loops on either side of the mid point of the tent, near the ground, but none on the tent I received. They are absolutely necessary to keep this thing anywhere near taut and keep the fabric off you whilst inside. In retrospect I could have returned the tent for a refund based on this alone. Good luck getting this thing nice and taut on your travels, unless of course you're doing a tour of the world's finest lawns. It is so unforgiving when there is the slightest imperfection of terrain. Every peg has to be in exactly the precise place and each pole has to be exactly the correct height to achieve anywhere near adequate tautness. Use a stick for the swallow tail end? Good luck finding that when you really need it. Achieving just the right tautness so that the vestibule is functional and not draping over all your gear, and the zip closes fully without feeling like it's gonna tear right off the tent body is an exercise in Chinese torture at the end of a hard day. When you don't know where you will sleep at the end of the day you need a sleep system that is somewhat flexible and adaptive. This is NOT it. Not by a long shot. And you may think that it's well adapted to tight, stealth camping spots but you need to take into consideration that the guy lines at either end go way out from the tent body. Consequently you'll be looking for larger areas to pitch it than you may think it needs. On top of all this you need to seam seal it yourself. No big deal if it was a great performing product, but somewhat of an insult to the customer when the product itself is so poor. I'm writing this after having unsuccessfully pitched it for the third night in a row. After other unsuccessful pitches on this 6 week trip I've given up and ditched the thing. Sleep on a groundsheet, use a bivvy bag, use a tarp setup, sleep in disused buildings, use a hammock, but don't fall for this ultralight incarnation from Nemo. It's trying to be too many things in one, and in trying so hard it ends up actually none of them. Just a complete ultralight pain in the . . . . Material feels good and strong. Pegs are excellent. And price is great, but that's where the positives end.

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.
