Warrior Expo – NEMO Equipment

The Coda 1.5P SE from NEMO Equipment’s Shield line is currently a component of the NSW issue PEPSE (Personal Environmental Protective Survival Equipment) kit.


The thing I love about this shelter is its versatility. That 1.5P in the name denotes one man plus his equipment. It features three doors, one on each side and one in front as well two vestibules, a side vestibule and a front vestibule. You take as much shelter as you need along for the haul, whether its just you, or you and your equipment, or you, your buddy and equipment.


All three doors feature an additional zipper track that allows vestibules to be attached or removed. An optional Linking Panel connects using the zipper track over the side doors to complex two or more Coda™ tents together, either facing the same direction, or 180 degrees opposed for better security.


Available in Coyote but can be camouflaged with the IPF™ (Interchangeable Partial Fly™) in MultiCam.

    That looks like just the kind of personal tent I’ve been wishing somebody would make… :-)

    Looks cool and all, but IMO it looks WAY too complicated… Also looks like it would pack up to be quite large with all those poles, but who knows…

      It’s only three poles and they fold.

        It loooks like a nice 1 man tent, but what would concern me more is the weight. It looks quite heavy. Do you know what the total weight for 1 unit would be?

        • SSD says:

          Well for one thing it’s modular. So you can carry as much as you need. I’ve never seen a one-man shelter that is this versatile.

          Minimum Weight 3 lbs, 14 oz / 1.8 kg
          Trail Weight 5 lbs,12 oz / 2.6 kg

            Pretty good for that price point and weight as a 1 person combat tent. Even better since you can join them and still have room for your gear in either configuration.
