Why We Like It

The Nemo Dagger 2 strikes the perfect balance between weight, comfort, and ease-of-use. Designed for backpackers that are conscious of weight, this 2-person, 3-season tent is exceptionally spacious and overall awesome. The single-hubbed pole design makes this tent freestanding, which allows it to beset up on rocks and in other areas where staking is tricky. This tent features 2 nicely-sized doors, rainfly with 4 ceiling vents and 2 door vestibules, interior pockets, and upper mesh for ventilation and/or stargazing on clear nights.

The Nemo Dagger 2 is an exceptional tent that's light enough for multi-day backpacking and offers plenty of space for a good night's rest.
