GORE-TEX® Shelter Fabric

One of the most advanced lightweight single-wall fabrics available for the tactical market, the Berry-compliant GORE-TEX® Shelter Fabric combines high strength textiles with Gore’s patented ePTFE-based membrane technology. This CPAI-84 compliant shelter fabric has high breathability and air permeability to minimize condensation, and also provides outstanding signature protection, exceeding most Military requirements for visual opacity (blackout) and near-infrared (nIR) reflection characteristics. Extensive field tests have also shown that Gore’s fabric delivers superior protection against Image Intensifying detectors used in night vision goggles.


The 7-color multi-environment camouflage pattern is officially licensed from Crye Precision, and available on a variety of high performance NEMO shelter fabrics. Developed for a wide range of terrain, seasons, environments, and light conditions, this pattern can be found in NEMO camouflage cover, rainfly, and waterproof/breathable shell fabrics.



NEMO’s waterproof/breathable fabric, OSMO™, continues to set the standard for breathability in ultralight single wall tents. OSMO™ is a 40D high-tenacity polyester ripstop with a hydrophobic microporous PU coating that is extremely breathable across a broad range of humidities. The polyester is naturally UV-resistant and doesn’t sag when wet. OSMO™ is also highly durable, chemical-resistant, and abrasion-resistant. An enhanced light reduction coating on the interior of OSMO™ DC prevents evidence of detectable light leakage through the fabric for standard military test protocols. 


Developed for the most extreme weather conditions on earth, OSMO™ EC is designed to handle heavy doses of sun, snow, wind, and rain without batting an eyelash. OSMO™ EC is especially resistant against continuous UV exposure with its innovative woven construction of high-tenacity polyester threads cross-reinforced with Dyneema. The exterior surface is treated with a UV-inhibiting agent and PU-coated on the interior for complete weatherproofness.


Packdry™ Mesh

This proprietary nylon mesh uses a high quality DWR on the exterior to shrug off moisture, dew, and light rain showers. A little shakedown when packing up means that your mesh stays dry and ready to go for your next adventure. Packdry™ is the only DWR no-see-um mesh on the market.


The outer fabric layer of NEMO’s airbeams provides the shape, strength, and puncture resistance in a lightweight package. Developed with renowned sailcloth manufacturer Dimension-Polyant, NEMO’s Multi-Laminate X-PLY® fabric accomplishes all of this with incredible dimensional stability and excellent seam holding strength. Orientated X-PLY® yarns are inserted into high-tenacity base fabric for even greater strength. The dimensional stability helps maintain the beam shape and strength given the airbeam’s low operating pressure.
