NEMO Equipment is a company based in Dover, New Hampshire, that designs and manufactures top outdoor gear, tents, and shelters. We believe NEMO is one of the best outdoor gear designers and manufacturers within todays market. The idea of NEMO was born one turbulent night on the side of Mount Washington while Cam Brensinger spent a sleepless five hours in a poorly designed bivy. That night he realized how much opportunity there was for thoughtful design as part of the equation of enjoying adventure. And, coming down off the mountain the next day, he resolved to tackle that challenge and later he founded brand NEMO Equipment. Throughout the years NEMO quickly began winning “best of” awards for design and innovation.
The name – New England Mountain Equipment – is a tribute to our New England roots and home and a nod to Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo.
