NEMO Equipment, Inc., manufacturer of extreme conditions and AirSupported tents and outdoor gear, has recently been added to Overland Training's list of distinguished Overland Certified companies. To become Overland Certified, a company representative must complete Overland Training through the Overland Institute to ensure an appreciation of the overland community and a better understanding of overlanding. Only companies that hold the highest standards of customer service and environmental awareness are certified.

Overland Training prepares vehicle-dependent expedition travelers for the challenges and opportunities associated with exploring the globe. Vehicle operation, recovery and repair, expedition planning and logistics, communications, conservation and courses in various cultures are all covered. Overland Training provides these skills through comprehensive field and classroom training taught by leading experts in the field.

Best known for their innovative AirSupported Technology® utilizing airbeams instead of traditional aluminum tent poles and most recently for winning Outside Magazine's Gear of the Year and Backpacker Magazine's Best All-Around 3-Person Tent, NEMO has been branching into new markets and experiencing steady growth. In 2008, NEMO's Morpho AR™ tent received the Best Value award from Overland Journal. Many of NEMO's products are uniquely qualified for overland travel because of their exceptional interior space, comfort and small packed size.

The president of NEMO, Cam Brensinger, is himself an overland traveler, having previously taken his BMW 1200GSA through Baja. He is currently planning a trip through northeastern Canada with his modified Toyota Tacoma. “We're proud to have this certification and to be closely associated with Scott Brady and his organizations. Overland Training and Overland Journal promote travel and adventure for all the right reasons, with a deep respect for the environment and conservation,” says Brensinger. “We're looking forward to increasing our involvement with this community and tapping into their expertise for future product development and testing.”

NEMO Equipment, Inc. was founded in 2002 by Cam Brensinger with the commitment to bringing the highest level of design and engineering to the world of outdoor adventure sports. The company produces lines of air-supported and traditional poled tents for the backcountry, accessories, sleeping pads and pillows. Besides AirSupported Technology®, NEMO has patents pending for its lightweight pumps, washable floor liners, condensation curtains and many more features and accessories which add functionality and comfort to its shelters. NEMO tents can be found at local, national and international retailers, including Eastern Mountain Sports, REI, and Moosejaw.
