Nemo Hornet Osmo 2P: 2 Person Ultralight Backpacking / Hiking Tent


$883.45 AUD $929.95 AUD

For those in search of an ultralight shelter with greater volume, Hornet OSMO™ offers enviable living space and comfort without sacrificing its airy weight classification. Hornet OSMO is made with the ultralight variation of NEMO’s OSMO™ suite of fabrics, arming it with 3x less wet stretch and a level of water repellency that starts drier and stays drier than the rest. (Even better? OSMO fabrics cut out forever chemicals and extra carbon emissions along with any unnecessary weight.)

Keeping Hornet OSMO extra trim is a minimal pole structure that sets up lightning-quick and pairs with NEMO’s volumising Flybar™ and door clips to create generous internal space. Triangulated reflective guy-outs and corner struts also increase volume at the foot and protect sleeping bags from tent wall condensation. An overhead Nightlight Pocket™, Gatekeeper™ one-handed tiebacks, and rectangular Divvy Cube™ stuff sack are new additions that add ease and creature comforts, not ounces. With the new Divvy Cube, this tent packs down small enough to fit in the bottom compartment of your pack — with a sleeping bag!


  • High-performance, proprietary OSMO™ poly-nylon ripstop fabric has 4x better water repellency and 3x less stretch when wet. OSMO fabric is made from 100% recycled yarns that are PFAS-free and meet flame retardancy standards without the use of added chemicals.
  • Large doors and vestibules provide ample gear coverage for each person.
  • Patent-pending Flybar™ volumising pole clip adds more room at the head and distributes fly tension evenly. (3P does not include Flybar.)
  • Volumising guy-outs connect the inner tent to the rainfly, pulling the sidewalls outward to create more livable space.
  • DAC Featherlite® NSL poles boast minimal weight and connect with a single hubbed intersection for lightning-quick setup.
  • Single-handedly tie back the tent door with integrated Gatekeeper™ clips.
    bluesign® approved floor material meets strict ecological and chemical requirements and has been produced with a minimum impact on people and the planet.
  • White no-see-um mesh at the side increases privacy, while black mesh at the top turns virtually transparent at night for clear stargazing.
  • Triangulated volumising guy-outs and struts at corners increase volume at the foot, protecting sleeping bags from tent wall condensation.
  • Nightlight Pockets™ turn your headlamp into a tent lantern while removing blue light and casting an even glow.
  • Divvy Cube™ rectangular stuff sack allows you to still split the weight with your partner but stows more efficiently in your pack.

Outdoor Gear Lab Best Buy Award - Ultralight Shelters

"This tent has the best combination of ease of set up, weight and livability for the price. It shares the Best Buy award with the BD Beta Light. The Beta Light is more weather resistant and adaptable. However, it requires adjustable trekking poles and many guy points. If you add in the optional bug netting and floor for the Beta Light, both tents are about the same cost but the Hornet is a half pound lighter. The Hornet's double door and double vestibule design meant that not only was it more stable in heavy winds than the other dedicated pole tents, but was also more comfortable for two people due to the added storage space and ease of getting in and out of the tent. It uses some innovative designs that we haven't seen before to make this tent simpler to set up with only one person, such as pole-locking attachment points. However, it, of course, had a few drawbacks, like weighing more than any other ultralight tent we tested, as well as being small and a bit cramped for use by two people. Regardless, if you want a lightweight tent that comes with poles and stakes included, this is the model we recommend for you. Want to go even lighter? Check out the Nemo Hornet Elite 2P. It weighs even less but comes with a big price jump to $500. It rivals the Big Agnes Fly Creek HV2 Platinum in weight and price."
