The Bugout™ Elite by NEMO is a simple shelter consisting of a well-designed tarp and mesh walls. The mesh walls stow securely and drop down easily to offer instant no-see-um protection.

  • Bugout Elite shelter adds only a few ounces to your pack but provides the same luxury of space and standing height to your backcountry site that would take pounds in a tent
  • String the tarp between 2 trees and your trekking poles or individual height-adjustable aluminum poles (poles sold separately) to create an escape from rain, bugs or sun
  • Adjustable height and multiple configurations make this a versatile shelter
  • Specially developed mesh with high water repellency protects against side blown rain and effortlessly sheds moisture when it's time to pack up
  • Mesh sides can be rolled up and secured away
  • Corners attach via cords to trekking poles or nearby trees and multiple stake points at each corner allow shelter height adjustment
  • Includes stuff sacks, stakes and repair kit
  • Please note: you'll want 4 points of contact to set up the NEMO Bugout Elite; any combinations of above-mentioned support will work fine
