Nook™ Backcountry Tent

Nook tent


Maximum livability in a lightweight backcountry tent.

The Nook™ backcountry tent offers a unique experience – plenty of livable room in a tent that doesn't take up much space to begin with. We designed this tent to fit comfortably in small backcountry sites, but offer spacious living for two. Weight and bulk are kept to a minimum to help you cover long days on the trail, but durability remains high. The result is a backcountry tent that's smart and livable, not just lightweight.
