NEMO Equipment is an award-winning New England-based designer of innovative outdoor gear including tents, sleeping bags and camping accessories. Founded on a commitment to adventure, NEMO Equipment believes that if you have the will, the imagination and the right gear, meaningful adventures are possible for everyone.
Following a stormy night on the side of Mount Washington in a poorly-designed bivvy, NEMO Equipment was born; the brainchild of Cam Brensinger who had only graduated from design school three days prior. He had realised how much opportunity there was for thoughtful design and how important great kit was to enjoying an adventure.
Operations were set up in a restored textile mill in New Hampshire where designers and engineers worked for months creating prototypes. Two years later, the brand launched and soon began winning awards for design and innovation winning the 2005 ISPO Brand New award and named by TIME as among the 100 best inventions of the year.
Fast-forward to today, the NEMO Equipment team has grown, and they continue to live out the belief that great gear makes for great adventures and great adventures make us our best selves. They never bring anything to the market that doesn’t offer a meaningfully better experience than what’s already out there.
