Unlike a traditional tent, the Lunar Solo's canopy floats off the ground. This allows for 360 o of ventilation. Plus the floor is not rigidly fixed. It is designed to float. A floor under tension is more likely to rip or get holes poked in by sharp objects.
This factors combine to make the Lunar Solo a bit more difficult to setup for the first time user. However, we've built a number of features in the tent to help get it setup correctly.
Follow the instructions below and with a little practice you'll find the Lunar Solo easy to setup time and time again.
Since your tent canopy floats, you can vary the height of your trekking pole depending upon conditions. Higher will provide more ventilation and lower in stormy weather. The front of the tent should always be off the ground. This is to ensure that you have adequate ventilation. Optimum height of your trekking pole should be 49 inches or 124 centimeters. Older models, pre 2012, worked best with 45" poles.
Setting the stakes in the proper order is one of the key elements in getting the perfect pitch. Look at the guide layout guide below to know where and in what order to set your stakes.
The Lunar Solo, with its single pole and raised canopy, creates an incredibly light and airy shelter. Unlike other tents with fixed points of setup, the floating canopy and floor design does take a little more patience to master. Still, the Lunar Solo’s weight savings makes it well worth the effort.
