NEMO Equipment is a young company based in New Hampshire that takes pride in pioneering a new genre of backcountry shelters that rely on pneumatic airbeams rather than traditional aluminum poles. Founded in April of 2002 by a dedicated bunch of industrial designers with a passion for bold outdoor adventures, NEMO’s earliest projects involved consulting at MIT on a NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts funded project to design new spacesuits for human exploration of Mars. However, as avid rock and ice climbers and backpackers, the team never lost sight of their desire to merge outdoor pursuit with aerospace technology and high design.
