Heavy packs are no fun—neither is getting soaked by rain or bitten by bugs. The Mountain Hardwear Nimbus UL 1 tent solves the dilemma for solo trips with a light design and protective sil-nylon fly.


  • 20-denier nylon rainfly is impregnated with silicone on both sides, increasing waterproofness, strength and durability, while decreasing weight
  • Nylon fly is made with no fabric dye, significantly reducing the use of water and chemicals in the manufacturing process
  • DAC Featherlight™ NFL poles provide a superb combination of high strength and light weight
  • Pre-bent pole design improves headroom and interior space
  • All pole sections are pre-connected via hubs for simple setup and takedown
  • Unique G-hook canopy-to-pole attachment system reduces weight and improves compressibility
  • Front mesh door with dual sliders and quick stash allows easy exit and entry
  • Front dry-entry vestibule with dual sliders gives you a place to store gear
  • 3/4 mesh canopy lets you look at the stars while the solid lower canopy helps keep dust out and block wind
  • Reinforced webbing corners reduce tent weight
  • High-quality aluminum DAC J-Stakes included
  • Tent comes packaged in 2 separate stuff sacks—1 sized for the tent body and fly and 1 for the poles—so you can easily divide the tent up for efficient packing
  • This tent is free of flame-retardant chemicals and may not adhere to CPAI-84
