NEMO Moto 1P

Like most tall campers, our 6’7” tester often sleeps with his feet scrunched against mesh—but he discovered rare comfort in the 109-inch-long Moto. “I could extend my arms behind my head and still not touch either end,” he rejoices. Add XXL dimensions in every other direction—46 inches wide at the head and 27 at the foot, and a 37-inch peak height—and there’s enough space to sprawl comfortably and still store gear inside. And now the really good news: You get all that extra space without extra weight.

That’s a result of several design choices: 1) a tradeoff—in extra-long mode, there’s no vestibule; 2) a weight-saving air beam (in lieu of a pole) provides the main structure; 3) it’s a single-wall; and 4) it’s not freestanding.

Testers deemed the latter three nonissues: Inflating the air beam takes just 30 seconds using the integrated foot pump, condensation never built up, and four stakes achieve a taut pitch—in the Rockies, the Moto prevailed in hammering 35-mph winds. And the former? If you want a vestibule, just roll the floor back to create a 10.5-square-foot one. Bummer: Opening the door during rain allows some drips inside. $330; 2 lbs. 14 oz.
The Voyager XL is a perfect tent for those who require maximum space for minimum weight, is there a better tent for space and weight? The semi-geodesic design is very stable in poor weather conditions, and the generous inner tent and large porch are spacious enough to comfortably wait out storms.
