Soloist is an ultralight, 1-person backpacking tent for multi-day trips and extended bikepacking tours. It's the ultimate multi-day solo shelter.

Lightweight fabric and short pole sections give a compact pack-size weighing just 1.2kg.

The hubbed central pole makes it quick to pitch while the semi-geodesic structure gives extra stability in bad weather. Inside there's room to sit up or get changed and a large porch gives space for storing muddy kit. Soloist can be pitched inner-only or flysheet and footprint together when you want to save even more weight.

Go solo.

Sustainability & Care

Environmental impact

Gear you'll love for longer

Soloist is built to last with Ripstop nylon used throughout and alloy poles. It'll keep going trip after trip.

Caring for your tent

Clean and dry your tent thoroughly after each use. Never use a washing machine, tumble dryer or jet wash to clean your tent. Spot clean with warm water, mild (non-detergent) soap and a soft sponge. Never use bleach, fabric softeners or other household cleaning products and air dry only.

Tent repair

To make your tent last longer, avoid prolonged UV exposure and repair damage immediately. If you are unlucky enough to rip your tent on a trip, use duct tape or StormSure Tough Tape until you have a chance to repair it properly. For more tent repair tips read our tent care and repair blog.
