The NEMO Frontier 3P shelter from is a blend of classic outfitter design and NEMO innovation. It offers a nearly rectangular sleeping area and a roomy triangular vestibule.

  • Single-pole design and unique pentagon shape make setup easy
  • Included aluminum monopole passes directly to the ground through the pole port in the floor, minimizing abrasion and enhancing weatherproofness
  • Direct guyout points keep the shelter anchored in a wind; vestibule doors can be tied back to increase ventilation
  • Reinforced hoops keep upper vents open to allow high-to-low ventilation
  • These volumizing vents can be guyed out to expose mesh-protected panels and significantly increase interior space
  • Light-diffusing headlamp pocket disperses light from your headlamp to cast an even glow over the entire tent
  • It's also possible to support the Frontier shelter with a trekking pole or kayak paddle, not included
  • Includes a stuff sack, stakes/guyline and repair kit

NEMO Frontier 3P Tent - 2012 Overstockis rated3.3333out of5by3.
Rated4out of5byfromGood TentI used this for the past 3 days and 2 nights in subfreezing temps at night and daytime thaws. The tent was tested with plenty of wind, rain, sleet, and a few inches of snow. I stayed with 2 dogs ~160 lb. total and I'm 200 lb. I brought all my gear in and we had floor space to spare. Pros: The tent would be very roomy for 3 paople. Weight is reasonable for a good sized tent. It is one of the quickest non-freestanding tents I've ever pitched. It guys out and condensation is well contolled by the roof vents. They have the appearance of little dormers from the inside. The materials seem durable. Cons: Much of the peripheral floor space does not have usable height, but this should be obvious from the design. The tent takes up real estate. To guy out the vents, you need more space or some nearby trees.

Rated5out of5byfromTime to Go CampingIt's a great tent! That doesn't say much but it also happens to be a fully encompassing statement. I really like the single pole set-up with the option of using treking poles instead to save weight on the trail. If you want a comfortable amount of room for two people and gear or three people with the gear in the vestibule this is the tent for you. A previous review said that the condensation was horrible...I haven't noticed that. He also mentioned putting a tarp over the tent to try and help the situation but may not have realized that he was just further blocking in the moisture. The tent breathes well and the design gives you a waterproof, rugged tent to take whenever you go out camping or backpacking with one or two others. The weight isn't too bad and Nemo as always delivered a quality product that will last you for years to come!

Rated1out of5byfromDon't buy and stay drierTook camping for 3 days and was wet the entire time, not due to the rain but to the immense amount of condensation inside the tent. I had the vents open and the vestibule door open as well to no avail. Placed a tarp above the tent and found the same problem. Returned the tent to REI with no problems.
