Sierra Madre Nube 2.0 Hammock Tent

Mar 11, 2016

Category: Gear

After more than a few bad experiences with suspended tents, the folks at Sierra Madre Research figured they could build a better one themselves. Three years of designs and prototypes later – they reached their goal with the Nube Hammock Shelter.

Now in its second iteration, the Nube is built to fully protect you from rain, wind, and insects. The tarp, a ripstop nylon covered in four coats of silicone (two on each side), easily keeps water from getting you and your gear wet, while the zip-up bug net keeps you protected from mosquitos and gnats. Engineered to be the most complete hammock shelter ever produced, it also includes a gear storage section. It measures in at 13 feet in length and can be easily paired with a wide array of camping hammocks on the market – anything up to 11.5 feet long. The shelter is tested to 1,000 pounds – while being thin and light enough to get folded into a pack smaller than a standard water bottle. Prices for these tents start at $275. [Purchase]
