NEMO MokiA home away from home, the NEMO Moki is the “Castle.” A single-walled, three-person, four-season tent was tested and succeeded months of backpacking on the Appalachian Trail and the brutal New Hampshire conditions in the Whites.

The tent’s construction is based on five poles: two outside, two inside, and one small tension pole for the top vents. The Moki’s design allows you to take advantage of its space, maintain breathability, and get out of wet, fierce conditions.

Spacious, durable, and relatively light, the Moki weighs 8.5 pounds. An option allows you to link with a friends’ Moki and create a tunnel housing setup for the baddest base camp in the foothills.

Two primary side doors with an optional vestibule, two smaller side door/windows, and two vents on the tent’s roof, give ample ventilation for the hottest and stickiest nights. Zip each down and insert the optional APRI (an emergency blanket for your tent), and you have a full-on mountaineering rig that brings you protection below zero.

NEMO will make you work some for its beauty. The company puts an extra touch on each Moki. NEMO manually stitches extra reinforcements in each tent.

The Moki got its nickname, Castle, because its stability, durability, and luxury it delivers.  Skylights in the ceiling give a view to outside weather without opening the tent. Its bright-orange color makes it easy to find in low to no-light situations.
