Nemo Dagger Ultralight Backpacking 2 Person Tent

Dagger is the quintessential one-tent wonder: light enough for backpacking, yet roomy enough to comfortably wait out a rainstorm inside. This best-seller is updated in 2019 with pre-bent poles to create more headroom, colour-coded poles and webbing for intuitive set up, and several additional improvements to increase ventilation, convenience, and durability.


  • Two large doors and massive trapezoidal vestibules offer ease of entry and more volume for storage than any other tent in its category
  • Key updates include pre-bent DAC Featherlite poles with Jake’s feet and lengthened main pole for significant increase in volume at the head and foot ends
  • Colour-coded anodized poles and matched webbing for an intuitive set up
  • Integrated 15D Nylon and No-See-Um Mesh sidewalls provide ample air flow and temperature control
  • White No-See-Um Mesh on side panels adds privacy, while a black mesh top offers clear stargazing at night
  • Overhead Light Pockets at both ends use special light-diffusing fabric to cast an even glow throughout the tent
  • Divvy Sack dual-stage stuff sack allows you to split the load with a hiking partner
  • Gear Pockets at each corner offer both partners ample storage for personal items
  • Protected strut vents at the top of each zipper flap ensure greater ventilation, especially during a storm
  • Protected by the NEMO Lifetime Warranty
