Comments about NEMO Obi 3P Tent:
We just purchased this tent after saying good-bye to our beloved tent of ten years. We were on a road trip through the American west and we used it everywhere from a grassy backyard to a rocky beach to a windy canyon. My husband and I love it, but we're glad it was only the two of us. A dog or child will snuggle in, but I believe you'd have to be creative to get three adults in there comfortably (head to toe?). We set it up for the first time at midnight after 13 hours of travel and got it right--a very good sign. Packed up it is so light and compact and smart--as in the stuff sack has places for the poles and stakes to snap on/attach, or they can be packed seperately. And I love the options for upgrades--a sturdier floor for when we bring the dog, etc. I've been a professional guide and have used dozens of tent models, and so far, this one if my favorite.
Comments about NEMO Obi 3P Tent:
I set out looking for a lightweight 1P tent. I'm not one of those geek freaks but after a couple thousand hours of research I settled on the Nemo Obi 3P Tent. Here's why. If I bought a 1P tent I would also need a 2P tent. Almost all 2P tents are made for 1+ people, not comfortable. With the Obi I found that by upgrading to a 3P tent I was covering all my bases and still only coming in at 4 lbs 13oz. That's only slightly heavier than a 1P tent with a fly. I love the fact that I can set up the fly and footprint without the tent and have a great lake or beach shade retreat. I also love the diffused material in the tent where you can place a headlamp that produces a glow like affect to read under. Not as great as a lantern but still an awesome idea. The tent took me 11 minutes to set up the first time and about 5 after that. It's quite easy and somewhat self-explanatory. There are directions with the tent and U-Tube videos as well. I would highly recommend the footprint to keep the bottom insulated and free of tears. The material is very tough but it is a designed to be a lightweight tent so materials are thinner than that of a heavy duty tent.
The Jake's Feet clips are another great idea that make the tent easier to set up and helps to keep everything taught. This allows condensation to run out where it is intended to and gives the tent greater integrity.
Dual doors and vestibules are a must if, like me, you need to get out to go to the bathroom every night. There is plenty of room to keep gear on one side and even cook on the other side if the weather goes bad.
Over all I love this tent. It's lightweight andI love the way it packs down with the poles separate. It's an expensive purchase but my last tent lasted over 20 years. If Nemo holds up like I expect it to I'll need an assisted living shelter rather than a tent next time!!
