Light enough for backpacking but large enough for comfort. The new Dagger OSMO incorporates NEMO’s new OSMO fabric, whilst drawing inspiration from NEMO’s classic dragonfly tent.

Nemo says: 

Dagger OSMO is the quintessential one-tent-wonder: lightweight enough for backpacking, yet roomy enough for comfort on any adventure. Dagger OSMO is one of the first tents in our iconic backpacking collection to feature our new proprietary OSMO™ fabric with advanced water repellency that lasts 4x longer and keeps you drier from start to finish. This composite fabric has 3x less stretch when wet, reducing sag and maintaining wind and rain shedding in any weather. OSMO fabrics are completely PFC- and PFAS-free, meet fire retardancy standards without the use of added chemicals, and are woven from 100% recycled yarns. With additional design features for convenience and durability, Dagger OSMO sets the standard for a balance of performance and thoughtful design.

Carrying forward the legacy features of its best-selling predecessor, Dagger OSMO includes a color-coded, DAC Featherlite NSL hubbed pole structure for generous interior volume and a fast, intuitive setup. With two doors and two expansive trapezoidal vestibules, Dagger OSMO leads its category for storage area and volume. We’ve also added some new features such as: the Divvy Cube™ rectangular stuff sack which packs better and allows you to split the load with a partner; the Landing Zone™ tub for protected storage under the vestibule; and our Gatekeeper™ door clips which make holding the doors back a cinch. Other thoughtful features include our overhead Nightlight Pocket™ headlamp diffuser for a comfortable glow at night, gear pockets for storage of personal items, and a 100% recycled Repreve™ pole bag that protects the poles and takes the place of unnecessary poly bags. When your adventures require one tent to rule them all, Dagger OSMO delivers increased performance and versatility — and reduced impact on the planet.

Our Verdict

One of the first in a new range of tents built with NEMO’s new OSMO™ fabric. Made from 100% recycled materials, free of any harmful PFCs or PFAS, this new poly-nylon maximizes performance without impacting the environment.  Made from a weave of strong, lightweight nylon and, a dimensionally stable (doesn’t stretch) polyester, which also doesn’t absorb water. NEMO has created a new fabric, that holds its shape better, has improved water repellency, and also saves weight.  

The two features that stood out for me are the “landing zone”, essentially a small footprint with a bathtub side, which attaches to the inside of the vestibule. Brilliant for storing wet gear and muddy boots. The gatekeeper door clips, which are so simple, I’m shocked no one has come up with this idea before, no more fiddling about with loops of bungee cord, the doors are held with a simple plastic clip. The tent also has 2 internal pockets one by each door, and also 2-night light pockets, one on each end of the tent. The pockets store your head torch and diffuses the light, giving the tent a cosy glow.

The large bathtub floor offers great weather protection, keeping wind and rain out of the tent, yet the tent still has good ventilation, especially with the strut vents located on the top of each door, which provide additional airflow.  Both doors and vestibules are of generous size, which can easily store the majority of your gear.
