The Isopod series of tents are the culmination of NEMO's experience designing for extreme conditions. Isopod, which takes its name from the pill bug, order Isopoda, has a unique pole configuration that has been wind tunnel tested and computer-optimized to withstand extreme winds, resisting pole breakage by allowing pole flex. The fabrics of Isopod™ are custom designed for this tent series, with additional UV and abrasion resistance. The removable inner canopy of Isopod is composed largely of our APRI (Air Permeable Reflective Insulation), a metallic fabric that increases interior warmth considerably. A large snow skirt, or valence, around the perimeter of Isopod can be covered with snow or extra equipment to seal out wind and weather. Over 60 guy-out points and 10 primary ground anchors lock Isopod to the ground. Numerous internally deployable vents and mesh pockets, including specialized radio pockets, ensure livability.
