Enjoy lightweight shelter and liveable space on your solo wild camping adventures.
Keep your pack light and your living space liveable!
Soloist encapsulates everything we love about just getting out and enjoying wild spaces. It is light and small enough to keep you agile. It is easy to pitch, spacious and stable, providing comfort and security when you need it. Let's take a look on how Soloist will be part of your next adventure.
Carrying everything yourself you know you have to be super aware of what you put in your pack or strap to your bike. We have used lightweight, packable fabrics and short pole sections to create a package that weighs 1200 grams and isn't much larger than a bottle of wine. Depending on your trip you can strip the tent down to its bare minimum and save yourself another 400 grams... Read more
Soloist uses a single hubbed pole system. It is simple for one person to set up and forms a stable, freestanding structure. Snap the poles together, insert the tips into the eyelets and suspend the inner from the poles. Throw the fly over the top and guy out. Get a brew on. As with all lightweight tents you do have to use your campcraft skills to take into account the extremes of weather which can happen any time of the year.
We talk a lot about liveable space so we made sure that Soloist is tall enough and wide enough so you can sit up in it. Hubbed, pre-bent poles significantly increase useable space in the roof and at the head and tail ends. It has a generous porch for storing your muddy shoes, a stash pocket for your keys or head torch, and a hanging loop for your head torch or your smelly socks. The pole configuration maximises the internal space and keeps the inner from flapping around your face as you sleep.
In hotter, drier climes you can pitch the inner only and enjoy the cool night air safe from hungry bugs. A seperate footprint is also available to protect your groundsheet on rougher pitches. If you have the footprint you can also leave the inner at home and pitch Soloist as a 'tarp tent', saving yourself half a kilo and vital space.

Product Care Information
Clean and dry tent thoroughly after each use. Never use a washing machine, tumble dryer or jetwash to clean your tent. Car washes are also frowned upon. Spot clean with warm water and a soft brush. Never use bleach, fabric softeners or other household cleaning products. Air dry only. Pack tent carefully to avoid punctures. Avoid prolonged UV exposure. If you are unlucky enough to rip your tent, duct tape or StormSure Tough Tape will do the trick for field repairs. Download the Soloist PDF instruction sheet.
