Design Like You Mean It – Ditto Slim Wallet

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Last Spring I had a chance to visit NEMO Equipment. One thing that struck me was a sign that said, “Design Like You Mean It.” Check this video out on the design process for the new minimalist Ditto Slim Wallet and then you’ll understand what they are up to.

Using paper, masking tape, staples, elastic, rubber bands, fabric, welding, stitching, sewing, it took 65 prototypes to arrive at the final design of the Ditto Slim Wallet. On the surface, this is an inside look at the design process involved in making the Ditto Slim Wallet. But much deeper than that, it’s an ode to the necessity of play and exploration in design. Some of the best designs come out of feeling free to fail, and not being afraid to make something that doesn’t work. This is a reminder to celebrate the failures as much as the success of the final design. Learn more about the design of Ditto Slim Wallet…

Outdoor Retailer – NEMO Equipment

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

First and foremost, NEMO has changed the color schemes of their sleeping pads to make them easily identifiable.

Next, they’ve introduced new pads. For example, the new Cosmo Lite series. Both models in the line incorporate the Airlock Elite fabric found on the Zor series of pads. And, they utilize a foot pump with a single baffle to save weight and increase compactibility. While the Cosmo Insulated Lite 20R (20 denoting width) includes a layer of PrimaLoft to take you down to 15 deg F, the Cosmo Air Lite 20R is made for slightly warmer temps above freezing and does include the additional insulation.

NEMO has also introduced two new tents.

The VEDA series is offered in two models. It relies on hiking poles for support but unlike other models on the market which only use one pole, NEMO presupposes that a hiker will have two poles and have leveraged that to provide better support and more head room. The Veda 1P seen below is a single wall tent but it also incorporates a bug net inside the tent which divides it into living and storage/cooking spaces. It is joined by a two person model which we’ll cover later.

This is the Galaxi 2P. It offers a large vestibule and these cool Magtie magnetic door tie-backs. The pole is of a single aluminum, hubbed design.

One feature that is kind of interesting is that they’ve incorporated a Velcro strip for name tags unto a commercial tent.

Finally, I’d like to mention NEMO’s new Duffel for storing your bags. It also includes a Dopp kit.

There are many other new products from NEMO and we’ll start sharing those soon as well.

Purchase a NEMO Losi Combat 2P SE and Get a FREE Helio Pressure Shower

Friday, July 5th, 2013

We just found out that NEMO Equipment is doing a quick 10 day promo; buy a Losi Combat 2P SE and get a FREE Helio Pressure Shower.

The Losi Combat 2P SE is based on NEMO’s top-selling Losi 2P lightweight backpacking tent. Its 2 doors and 2 vestibules offer easy access and generous gear storage for each person. The pole configuration makes for near vertical walls, so when the weather’s bad, 5 people can join you for a round of cards.

20130705-130255.jpg

The Helio Pressure Shower is awesome. Ive been impressed with it simce forst checking it out at Summer OR a couple of years ago. Perfect for backcountry showers, kitchen duty or hosing off gear, Helio requires no hanging. The 11 liter welded fabric water tank is quickly pressurized with NEMO’s foot pump. Just fill with water, let warm in the sun, pressurize and start enjoying the 5-7 minutes of steady water pressure.

Tent Topographics – An Innovative Look At Shelters From NEMO Equipment

Monday, May 13th, 2013

NEMO Equipment has has adopted an innovative way to look at the internal space of tents. First recommended by the Outdoor Industry Alliance’s ASTM committee, it is modeled on topography lines from a map.

20130513-085646.jpg

One of the most difficult things to do is to visualize the vertical space within a shelter since they invariably feature sloped sides. Without actually setting one up and climbing in, you can’t be sure if you’ll have much room to maneuver.

20130513-085733.jpg

With these topographic diagrams, you can visualize the shelter’s maneuver room, just like on a 1:50,000 map. While NEMO Equipment is the first company to incorporate them, hopefully they’ll soon become the industry standard. Look for these diagrams starting now on www.nemoequipment.com.

Warrior Expo – NEMO Equipment

Friday, April 26th, 2013

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.

20130425-215344.jpg

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.

20130425-220005.jpg

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.

20130425-220936.jpg

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

Military Mountain and Cold Weather Work Shop – Shelters

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

20130221-112314.jpg

NEMO Equipment offers a wide variety of shelters that will accommodate users from 1 to 20. Here, you see their Coda 1.5P SE which incorporates dual side openings as well as a vestibule.

For years the US military has issued a canvas tent for use in arctic environments. NEMO Equipment has developed a new shelter called the ISOPOD300X SE for a USMC requirement to replace this older shelter.

20130221-111652.jpg
This slightly smaller ISOPOD100 (above) version is in Orange but its also offered in any of the NEMO SE colors such as Alpha Green, Coyote and MultiCam. This tent will handle a wind load in excess of 80 mph.

From above the ISOPOD300X resembles a cloverleaf. It’s a single wall tent and the Gore-tex fabric is also FR and offers blackout for light suppression. You can turn a light on inside and the tent won’t “glow”. It is under 150 lbs and this shelter will also accept a space heater as well as HVAC units.

They are also currently working on a new version of the US Army’s 10 men Arctic tent designed in 1952. Referred to as an Octopod, it will be a center pole design and fit in an akio.
