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.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
