Nemo Tents for Camping

Here you have my selection of the best rated Nemo tents for camping with unique features, top quality materials, and with great warranty conditions.

Nemo is a brand very known for its ultralight backpacking tents, but it has a number of camping tents as well, so the best examples of them are presented in the list below.

When this is about Nemo, you can always expect to see something unique in the designs of its products, so the same holds for the tents presented here. Note also that some of them are representatives of series that include several tents. So although the list here is short, it implies at least twice as many tents as the number shown in the list.

My list of top rated Nemo camping tents

The tents in the list are ordered by the official capacity from smaller to larger.


Some of these tents have been around for a number of years, but some are quite new on the market.

1. Nemo Switch 2 Person Tent

Nemo Switch 2 Person Tent.

The word Switch in the name of this indicates the fact that you can use it as a tent, a screenhouse, and as a sunshade. From the picture above you realize how vertical the wall is, so this is a unique design as usual for this brand.

The tent has two doors and two vestibules with Gatekeeper door clips for ease of entry. You have lots of gear storage space, and the tent is ventilated.

They claim it is built from a fire-retardant but chemical-free UPF 50+ fabrics, and that it meets CGSB-182.1 requirements for flame retardancy. The fly and floor are both built from a 68D polyester with a 1200 mm PU coating, and the canopy is a No-See-Um Mesh.

It is supported with top quality DAC Pressfit aluminum poles with hubs that simplify setup. You have Nightlight Pockets for a headlamp to be used as a lantern.

Here are a few numbers. The tent weighs 8 lb 5 oz (3.77 kg), so this is not for the trail. The floor area is 31.2 ft² (2.9 m²), and you have vestibules that add 18.5 + 9.2 ft² (1.7 + 0.9 m²).

The packed size is 25.5 x 8 x 8 inches (65 x 20 x 20 cm), and the peak height is 57 inches (145 cm). Please see more in the video:

  • Quality poles.

What I dislike:

  • Low floor rating.

2. Nemo Wagontop 4p Tent

Nemo Wagontop 4p Tent.

Here you have the Wagontop 4 person tent, and this is the smallest in a series of three that includes also Wagontop 6P and Wagontop 8P. So if you need a larger shelter, you can easily find one, they share almost the same features.

This is a clever and unique construction, and it is freestanding. This is achieved with poles that are Y-shaped on both ends, and when they are in the ground grommets, the structure becomes self-supporting. The general shape is close to a tunnel type but it is much more than that.

It has one door and a removable vestibule visible in the picture on the left side. Note that you also have large panoramic windows on the sides.

Regarding materials, the poles are thick with a 14.5 mm diameter and this is aluminum. The wall fabric is a moderately durable 75D polyester with a 1500 waterproof rating. The floor material is a much more durable 300D polyester with the same waterproof rating.

The tent weighs 20 lb 1 oz (9.1 kg) so it is on the heavy side. But the area and volume are very good, the floored space is 69.4 ft² (6.45 m²) and under the vestibule you also have 26.9 ft² (2.5 m²). The packed size (L x D) is 27 x 10 inches (69 x 25 cm). This tent is also in my list of best 4 person car camping tents and best family tents with a vestibule.

In this video you can see more, please have a look:

What I like:

  • Top-quality materials.
  • Nice vestibule.
  • Tall and pleasant.
  • Great lifetime warranty.

What I dislike:

  • The price.
  • Single-layer design.

This is a 6 person tent, but note that they also have a 4-person version with the same features. Here again you have a unique dome style construction. It includes two large vestibule and two windows on the sides.

The tent is supported with quality aluminum poles that are 12 and 13 mm in the diameter. The fabric here is a 68D polyester and No-See-Um mesh and its waterproof rating is 1200 mm. The floor is a 150D PU coated polyester with a 1500 mm rating. Note that the floor comes with a unique printed pattern.

Here are a few more numbers. The tent weighs 18 lb 10 oz (8.46 kg), and its inner area is 83.3 ft² (7.7 m²). The vestibules add 23.6 + 23.6 ft² (2.2 + 2.2 m²). The peak height is quite impressive 77 inches (196 cm), and the tent packs to 26 x 9.5 x 9.5 inches (66 x 24 x 24 cm).
