Exactly what I was looking for

"Backpacked through Yosemite National Park California as well as upper and lower Cathedral Lakes. The two person tent was absolutely awesome , lightweight, quality made, amount of space, easy set up/break down, storage, and affordable was exactly what I was looking for. Compared to other brands out there, the Near Zero 2 person tent definitely satisfies all my needs."

Awesome gear!

"Just back from a rainy 5 day trek in the Sawtooth Wilderness, Idaho and used the Near Zero 2 person backpacking tent and sleeping bag/quilt. I was impressed with the quality of stitching, zippers, fabrics and the “near zero” weight!  Loved the extra double vestibule space and 3 storage pockets inside.  No leaks or problems at all.  I had previously been using a smaller tent that I paid $450 for. And loved the extra foot space of the bag, compared to my previous mummy bag. I’ll be using these Near Zero products on my trips from now on!  What awesome equipment!"

Best tent for the money, will buy many more

"I was looking for a lightweight tent that still had poles and this is the only one that fit what I was looking for. Once it arrived I set it up and it is amazing. Love the look they way it only uses one pole color coating where the poles connect to the tent…Five stars all the way."

Thank you Near Zero!

"Thank you, Near Zero! For years I’ve been hoping for a lower-cost option to the lightweight gear I’ve known is ideal for backpacking but always seems to be out of my price range. I’ve found the answer. My son and I enjoyed the first night in our Near Zero two-man tent, which was easy to set up, and our Near Zero pads and pillows inflated very quickly. Love the design of the tent and especially HOW LIGHT IT IS! Can’t wait to use them again next weekend!"

"The Near Zero titanium shovel is surprisingly light and sturdy. It is easy to pack, unpack and use. Relieved to finally have a lightweight backpacking shovel that actually works. Happy to get rid of our other flimsy or heavy shovels."

Insanely Good Tent

"Had a few camping trips with the Near Zero 2-person tent and I can say this: it's insanely good. Set up process is just awesome. Much better than different Chinese "brands" and much cheaper than MSR/Nemo."

500 Miles Backcountry in New Zealand

"For three months, my husband and I, along with our five children (ages 8-14) backpacked throughout New Zealand doing all 10 Great Walks, a total of 500 miles. As we prepared for this feat, we knew that in order to be successful, we needed ultra lightweight, dependable and versatile equipment for our children. Hands down, the best piece of equipment we bought was the Near Zero sleeping bag. Not only were the bags compact and lightweight (weighing just 1 pound), they also were warm and comfortable in the backcountry.”
