Description

Show Description

Does your family like to challenge themselves and the weather? The Nimbus is light enough for paddling trips or to tote into a backcountry basecamp, yet roomy enough for five. Its reinforced dome frame and long fly make waiting out that storm a worry-free adventure.

  • Spacious hooped vestibule keeps grimy gear, clothes, or pets out of the main tent.
  • Back door provides additional exit options for minimal nighttime disturbance.
  • Vents in the canopy, fly, and vestibule for comfort in warmer weather.
  • Lots of internal stash pockets to keep everyone organized.
  • New cam cleat tensioners let you adjust the guy lines without pulling-and-threading.
  • Pegs are upgraded to DAC J-stakes, with a V-cross section that holds better than needle or wire styles.
