Five sides are better than four. Compared to conventional square pyramid designs, NEMO's Pentalite™ offers near rectangular sleeping area and a roomy additional triangular vestibule area.

You can convert the Pentalite™ ultralight backpacking shelter into a fully weatherproof and bug-proof tent by adding the optional Wedge™ inner tent. Unique *volumizing vents* guy out the tent and increase interior volume. It’s also possible to support Pentalite™ by lashing trekking poles or a kayak paddle.

Pentalite™ includes a DAC mono-pole, roll-up stuff sack, stakes, a light pocket and repair kit. Optional Wedge™ inner tent, and footprint are also available.

*VOLUMIZING VENTS - The sides of certain NEMO tents can be guyed-out for extra lateral ventilation. Anchoring the vents enables the side walls to be lifted away from essential living space to increase the usable volume inside the tent. For Espri™ series tents, you can also use the convenient clips on the fly to attach directly to the side of the tent at these guy-out points. When you pull the fly, you will then also pull the side walls and expand the interior volume of the tent.

LIGHT POCKET™ - NEMO tents include a special pocket for your headlamp with a light diffusing fabric. Place your lamp in the pocket with the light facing towards the inside of the tent, and the Light Pocket™ will help cast an even glow throughout the tent interior.

J-STAKES - DAC’s J-stakes have many innovative features. The unique cross section of the J-stake has a widened center and tapered ends. This allows the stake to bear a considerable amount of force for its size and be anchored securely while minimizing its weight. Usability is increased with smooth edges on the top of the stake that protect users' feet and a deadman groove that makes the J-stake usable even when buried in sand or snow. J-stakes use DAC’s GREEN™ anodization, which avoids the use of toxic heavy metals in the finishing process.
