Sako is NEMO Equipment's 2-3 person AirSupported™ tent. Designed for comfortable extended backpacking excursions, Sako is still easy to set up with its fully integrated one piece design using EPIC™ fabric, three mesh doors and four vents for terrific ventilation.

NEMO’s proprietary AirSupported™ Technology relies on low pressure pneumatic airbeams rather than traditional aluminum poles for structure. The technology, developed after three years of research and development, offers unparalleled ease of use with an average set up time of 25 seconds.

Sako is designed for the discerning backpacker who isn’t ready to sacrifice comfort. It’s a streamlined design, with enough space inside for gear, and plenty of headroom.

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.
