Gear Of The Year Awards 2016: The NEMO Wagontop 8p Camping Tent

The Camping Authority Announces Annual Gear Award for the Nemo Wagontop 8p Camping Tent

Tents and their features are hotly debated topics among the 50 Campfires team. Since we’re a diverse and cantankerous group, we each have our own picks and pans. So, it’s pretty rare when any tent wins unanimous thumbs up around our campfire. Then again, The Nemo Wagontop 8p Camping Tent offers some pretty rare benefits.

Benefit #1: This thing is big. Make that massive. It provides ample, real, useable living space. Even the tallest of the 50 Campfires team (that’s Nick by the way) can stand up … straight up … under the Wagontop 8p’s roof.

Benefit #2: Quality of construction and design. Nemo puts the user experience first in creating the design of all its tent poles and hardware. They work. The last. ’nuff said.

Benefit #3: It sets up easy. Big tents can be a royal pain to set up, take down, and restow. Not so for this bad boy. The single wall design and just two hubbed poles make construction and destruction a breeze. This legitimately cuts down on the campsite cussing factor by several magnitudes. That’s a good quality in a tent meant for family camping!

Other features include a gigantic screened porch that can be covered with the rain fly and a built-in divider that allows you to create either separated spaces or a great room for fun and games the whole gang can enjoy at once.




It’s basically an apartment in the wild.
