Enter for a Chance to Win a Free NEMO Hornet Elite Ultralight 1 Person Tent

Nemo Hornet Tent Raffle

The NEMO Hornet Elite 1 is a ultralight double-wall backpacking tent for solo trips when light weight and low gear volume are priorities. It’s easy to set up and narrow enough to fit into tight spaces when you need to camp at wild, non-designated campsites, but provides far more comfort, weather, and insect protection than a bivy sack or tarp. Weighing just 23 ounces, the Hornet Elite 1 is mindbogglingly lightweight for a tent made with conventional fabrics, although it is on the pricy side with an MSRP of $449.95.

For more details about this tent, see my NEMO Hornet Elite 1 Tent Review from earlier this year.

To Enter

To enter this random raffle for a chance to win a free NEMO Hornet Elite 1 Tent, answer five easy questions by clicking through to this google form. One entry per person only. The deadline to enter is Monday, June 18, at midnight, PST.

water filter survey


  1. Good call on the Google form. I’m sure this will save you a lot of time tabulating the results!

  2. Regarding the question about drinking from a back country water source, is that meant to be regardless as to whether you filter or not, or only if you drink directly from one without filtering?

  3. Except for a few springs that have a pipe coming directly out of a mountain, I’ve always treated water from the backcountry. My brother lived in Montana for 30 years and didn’t treat the water he drank and used to tease me about it when we hiked together… until he got giardia. He became a believer! He lives in Mexico now and treats the water he uses there as well.

  4. Have both a large (Katadyn Vario) and small (Sawyer squeeze) filters. Shorter the trip, the smaller the filter. If I’m going with the scouts and water might be an issue, I bring the Katadyn as I can quickly fill up everyone’s bottles if needed.

    Chemicals are backup. I always have something (the tablets are tiny and light) but have never actually used them on the trail, just in a practice and twice in a presentation to the scouts. Filters are really reliable. But water is something you don’t want to worry about.

  5. So Phillip, when is the actual drawing and winner notification? I’ve got another AT section hike early July and I’d LOVE this tent. :)

  6. What is the best/most recommended filter/purification system for 2 people on 5 day backpacking trips?
