We’re giving away a Nemo Equipment tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat and Osprey hiking pack for the ultimate top quality ultralight set up.

This competition has now closed. Don’t worry we got you, check out what else you can win.

If you’ve done an overnight hike before chances are your first set up was less than ideal. Your tent was too heavy, you borrowed someone else’s ill fitting pack, and the only camp cooking gear you had was made of cast iron, so you just ate cold tinned spaghetti.

It can be pretty expensive to equip yourself with top notch gear and rightly so. Ultralight gear is quite a science, with manufacturers constantly coming up with new and  inventive ways to shave weight off every possible ounce without compromising on durability. 

That’s where this prize comes in.

Nemo Hornet Elite OSMO 2P Tent

A good hiking tent is like the choc chips in a choc chip cookie; essential, delicious and make the whole experience just that much better. 

Nemo’s new and improved Hornet Elite Osmo packs a punch, with the two person tent coming in at just 935 grams. Every detail from the DAC Featherlite poles to the new Osmo fabric has been optimised for weight and strength.

Osmo is fully recycled and free of unnecessary chemicals like PFAS, plus it’s four times more water repellent and three times more stretch resistant when wet than conventional nylon fabrics.


Nemo Tensor Insulated Regular Mummy Sleeping Pad

If you’re planning to trek for a few days, your sleep is vital to your recovery and experience on the trail. Made with their Spaceframe baffle construction and insulated with multiple layers of suspended Thermal Mirror metallized film, the Tensor is quiet, stable, comfortable and supportive.

Weighing just 490 grams and measuring 20 x 7.5cm when packed down, this pad will take up minimal space and provide maximum comfort. 



Nemo Kayu 15 Reg Sleeping Bag

The Kayu mens down sleeping bag weighs just 985 grams with a comfort rating of -3C, keeping you safe and warm in most conditions. 

Some nice touches are a waterproof footbox and hood protecting you from tent condensation, zippered air vents on the body to allow for temperature regulation without letting cold drafts in, and a water repellent ripstop outer and nylon taffeta inner lining for a silky smooth sleep experience.
