ORSM 18 – NEMO Tent Stakes

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018


I always enjoy the new innovations from the design team at NEMO, this OR it’s Tent Stakes.


It’s really more of a system, consisting of Airpin Ultralight Stakes, Javelin Tent Stakes, and Meldr Hammer.


The Airpin is made from 7075 Aluminum and integrates a three-point locking system for cords which eliminates the need for knots, cord locks or tensioners.


The Javelin on the other hand, is made from stainless steel and features a T cross section for strength. The Javelin also incorporates a cleat locking system for cordage. The Meldr is 1 lbs 9 oz of stainless steel and hickory, with a bottle opener at the toe.


ORSM 17 – NEMO Equipment Introduces STARGAZE Recliners

Friday, July 28th, 2017

As soon as I pulled into the NEMO Equipment booth I had a desire to sit down, in one of their new STARGAZE Recliners. Offered in three styles, they are like a chair had a baby with a hammock. You can sit, recline, or swing in any of these models.

This is the STARGAZE Recliner Luxury. This model features a high back and will recline into a very comfortable position. The aluminum frame and hubs, go together quickly. Combined with the nylon waterproof mesh construction, it will support up to 400 lbs. However, it weighs 6 lbs, 12 oz, so you aren't packing this around. Offered in Graphite (shown) and Birch Leaf Green.

Both the STARGAZE and STARGAZE LITE features the same look, but both have a lower back than the Luxury model. They are lighter at 5 lbs, 11 oz and 5 lbs, 3 oz respectively but only support 300 lbs. The difference is because the Huns ar molded plastic, rather than machined aluminum.

Finally, all three chairs incorporate drink holders. Coming Jan 2018.


NEMO Equipment Celebrates 15th Anniversary With Wooden Spoon Shaper Kit

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

First off, it’s hard to believe that NEMO Equipment has been around for 15 years. Man, has that time flown. Congratulations to NEMO Equipment and in particular to their founder, Cam Brensinger. Everytime I talk to him I learn something new, but one thing that has never come up, is his love of carving. I found out about that when NEMO released their 15th Anniversary Spoon Shaper Kit. Cam assembled these kits in order to help others pick up his hobby.

It consists of a straight blade knife, a hook knife, a folding saw, a leather strop mounted on bamboo, handmade by Cam, and a pencil and sandpaper, all nestled in a custom waxed canvas tool roll. All you need is a piece of wood and a lazy afternoon.

ORSM – NEMO Equipment Cloudview Hammock

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Hammocks are all the rage but these days you’re either getting a lightweight fabric hammock that swallows you as soon as you get in or a large net hammock that you’d find in grandma’s backyard. NEMO set about to make something in between.

Right from the get go, you’ll notice the design. It’s got a deep foot pocket so that when you get in, your feet don’t end up higher than your head. Additionally, the material won’t absorb water and the hammock comes with spreader bars to keep its shape. It’s topped off with an iPad pocket and beverage holder.
