Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this tent I can't say enough good things about this tent. I had one issue with the plastic peg at the base of one of the poles snapping when I first got it, but that was easily fixed with an exchange at REI. I've had the tent for 18 months now and it's gone with me to Alaska, Montana, and all over the Midwest. With the rainfly off there's visibility to see all the stars in the sky, and when it rains the rainfly is completely waterproof. The tent is lightweight for backpacking and the two exits and vestibules make logistics for two people much easier. Two exits are a must for me in any future tent purchase. I'm about to take it backpacking in Hawaii and feel 100% confident in its ability to perform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Tent The Nemo Galaxi 2P tent is an awesome “beginner tent” for backpacking. It weighs just over 5.5 lbs and it has great value due to the included footprint which usually runs at least $40. I’ve used this tent for multiple trips totaling two weeks and hasn’t disappointed. My last trip involved heavy rain for 24 hours straight and the tent kept us dry. The included stakes weren’t the best and fragile so I upgraded to the MSR Groundhogs. There is plenty of room for gear inside the tent and the side panels. Also, the vestibules provided enough cover for storing gear outside. I’m actually upgrading the tent to the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 which is about $150 more because to save weight and volume in my pack. Otherwise, the Nemo Galaxi 2P is a solid tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and durability I took this out for the first trial run on a short snow backpacking trip near Lemolo Lake in Oregon. Set up was easy, and I was amazed at the quality of the components. I really enjoyed the footprint being included, and also the one piece frame assembly. It's about a pound heavier than I would have liked, but my main requirement was the tent had to be water proof. It proved just that and even water that formed between the tent and the footprint (because I put it in a low spot) did not penetrate the floor. Looking forward to more trips with it in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed tent I bought this tent for canoeing camping on gravel bars on streams in the Ozarks. The tent is exceptionally easy to set up. The interior footprint area is generous for two people. The ceiling pocket for an LED light spreads light around the whole tent. The two exterior vestibules provide a lot of cover area for gear during rain events. I bought the birch green color. During the day or lit at night, the tent is simply attractive. If the tent was lighter, this would be my backpacking tent. For canoe camping or base camps, I highly recommend this tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shelter I used this tent for two years. It is extremely easy to set up and take down, even by yourself! The hubbed poles are sturdy and the pitch is easy to get taut. There is TONS of room in this tent. Plenty for two people (think two 6' 170 lb. humans and a medium dog comfortably) and the vestibules on both sides give plenty of room for gear storage. I would highly recommend this tent to anyone looking for a shelter in this category, although it is a bit heavy for backpacking at around 5 lbs. Durable, sturdy, roomy, highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic tent for the price Bought this tent to replace a Kelty Salida 2 that I beat the heck out of on an 8-month cross-country hike. I use 2p tents for long solo trips. The extra comfort more than makes up for the weight penalty for me. Quality materials and construction, nice amount of versatility (pitch with or without fly, or with just footprint and fly), and great features for the price. Also, this thing is huuuge! Tons of square footage, two giant vestibules, and head room to spare. In a pinch, I could even bring my bike inside and not be too cramped. Overall, I'm very happy with my first Nemo purchase. I'll probably pick up the Pawprint as well to extend the tent's life (and comfort level) even a little bit further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set-up & great features This tent is a great value for the moderately low price. I bought this tent about 2 months ago, i've gotten to use it about 10 times. Used it in heavy winds in the eastern sierra's and it stood the test, and it was not hard to put together because of the snap system, and also the fact that the poles are all connected. I put it together in probably 5 minutes. It is really simple to do, even in poor wind conditions. I have also had the chance to use it in the rain and it also stands the test there as well. For ultra light packing it is a little bit heavy, but I will gladly carry the extra weight for this guy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tent - nothing too special This is another good quality product from Nemo. Personally, if I am shopping for a tent with the enhanced rectangular design for additional room I would lean towards the REI Quarter or Half Dome series. Both of them provide more room than this. Also, I am not a huge fan of the single interconnected hub pole design. This introduces a built-in pressure point that I can guarantee you will be the spot where the pole will snap. There is really nothing too special about this tent besides the fact that it comes with the footprint which can run as much as $40. So, if you are looking for a very good quality tent, factoring in that this comes with a footprint, this is definitely one to consider.

Is the top mesh pocket removable?

Asked by: Janelleslt
The two light pockets that can house a headlamp at the top of the tent are sewn in and cannot be removed. The gear loft (sold separately) is removable.

The canopy fabric is labeled as "mesh" in the specs, but I believe Nemo has it listed as more than that. Is this true? Shouldn't it be a certain denier of nylon?

Asked by: Butler
The canopy fabric is 20D No-see-um mesh.

How would this tent preform in high sustained winds?  

Asked by: Jeremy
If guyed out and staked down correctly, the Galaxy will withstand wind gusts and the rainfly will protect you from rain showers. This Galaxy is a three-season tent, whose structure is not intended for snow loading or continuous heavy, altitude winds.
