The last I heard about NEMO was when they launched a dual-height adjustable and foldable table specially tailored for the outdoor adventures. The New Hampshire-based outdoor gear company is renowned for making world-class tents and it has now added another feather to its cap by introducing the world’s first carbon neutral tent.
NEMO has collaborated with next-door neighbors from Maine, L.L.Bean, for the project. Being extolled as the first-ever carbon neutral tent, the marquee is constructed using recycled materials and chemical-free fabrics.
Dubbed Impact, the backpacking tent comes in two different versions. One is two person tent and the other is three person tent. Both are spacious and offer a floor area of 31.8-square feet and 44-square feet respectively.
The interiors are very airy and have steep sidewalls and a very wide top. NEMO mentions that fly, floor and canopy fabric are all made of 68-denier recycled ripstop yarn. In addition, the frame comprises a hubbed aluminum DAC Featherlite NFL 8.7mm pole. The use of carbon offsets, thus results in reducing carbon footprint.
There are two entryways to offer smooth access and exist. Other than this, there are dual vestibules and plenty of pockets to store gear and boots and keep them dry, in case of rain. Extremely lightweight in nature (5lbs and 4lbs), the tent is completely waterproof as well. The roof of the tent features a mesh to allow occupants to have a nice look at the night sky while keeping bugs at bay.
