The 2012 NEMO Quantum Elite Tent is an ultralight, ultra-versatile backpacking tent. Your ideal sidekick for just about everything short of time travel, the Quantum Elite is the next generation of NEMO’s Nano Elite. The Quantum’s minimalist internal pole setup and tiny packed size make this tent ideal for adventure races, backpacking, and ultralight mountaineering. The NEMO Quantum Elite has a large internally deployable overhead vent and volumizing side vents to work in combination with the featherweight OSMO Elite W/B fabric to transport moisture outside the tent. Use your NEMO Quantum vestibule outside the main entrance to store muddy shoes, prepare food, or organize gear for the next day's push. The NEMO Quantum Elite is a 2 person tent with plenty of room to store gear, but in a pinch you can use it as a 4 person tent. For mountaineering adventures, add the removable Windshield accessory for increased wind protection to your NEMO backpacking tent.
