NEMO Equipment, Inc. has received one of the highest honors in the outdoor industry: Losi 3Pâ„¢ was voted Best All-Around 3-Person Tent by Backpacker magazine. NEMO joined thirty-two tent manufacturers who combined, submitted over 135 tents to be tested and evaluated for Backpacker's 2009 Gear Guide.

The review reads, "testers were loath to part with this shelter —the surest evidence that it nails the ideal blend of space, weight and weatherproofing. You could squeeze four people inside, or easily fit three and a dog, said one after a trip to Colorado's Mt. Massive Wilderness. With a 50-square foot floor and soaring, 48-inch high ceiling, the double wall Losi let the biggest testers sprawl out. Vestibules are equally spacious. A multi-pocket organizer panel —the smartest tent pocket we've seen —kept gear stashed with library-like neatness. The silnylon fly beaded rain better than my freshly waxed Tacoma, said one tester after getting pounded by thunderstorms...."

“The NEMO team has been working hard for the past 7 years. As a young company, it's not easy getting established in a market with so many brands that have been around for decades. But the award for Losi 3P™ validates the effort we've put in to be truly unique and innovative. It's also a great compliment to the Best All-Around Mountaineering Tent award our Moki™ received last year,” said Cam Brensinger, president and founder of NEMO Equipment, Inc.

In addition to its Losi 3Pâ„¢ tent, three other NEMO products were highlighted:

The Gogo EX™ bivy—“Long and Light. With 124 inches from foot to door, an NBA center could unfurl completely..."

The Nano OZ™ recycled 2 person backpacking tent—“Eco-Friendly Single-Wall. The green ingredients in this single wall tent are impressive...But it's more than just a concept tent for green tech—it's a legit lightweight shelter as well.

The TUO™ Standard sleeping pad—“Deluxe Cushion. Testers found the innovative design extremely comfortable, with a slightly firmer, more substantial feel than single layer pads —great for smoothing out bumpy ground.

Entering its fourth year of sales, NEMO is tripling production for 2009 based on retailer, consumer and military demand. Best known for its innovative AirSupported Technology® utilizing airbeams instead of traditional aluminum tent poles, NEMO's product line is expanding from 7 to 12 tents, and the company has also added 3 sleeping pads and 1 backcountry pillow.

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.
