"Have spent over 200 nights since first buying my Lunar Solo back in 2016. It has seen conditions to -20°C up to +38°C. Above the Arctic Circle into the deserts of Israel. Down from the Dead Sea up to the open Tundra. A great shelter for great adventures." - Andrei

Floating Floor reduces floor stress and helps to minimize punctures from sharp objects.

First backpack tent

I just got it and so far I’m very happy with my purchase! Lightweight and roomy. I spent last night in it in an all night downpour and stayed dry.

Cool tent

Think it’s a great tent. The durability isn’t the best out there, but it is just an ultralight tent. I’m bummed it didn’t come with the seams sealed or tent stakes for that price…

Solid Tent

Used this on a trip to tye Boundary Waters. It performed as hoped and had space to spare. I appreciated having a covered vestibule.

A bit more condensation inside in the AM than I expected, but not a dealbreaker.

Poor Ventilation

I really wanted to like this tent, but unfortunately it let me down the first time out when 3 nights in a row everything in my tent got wet from condensation.

Before my trip, I spent quite a bit of time practicing my pitch according to the instructions. I got a little bit better pitch each time until I soon got the hang of it.

When I got to NW Montana where the humidity was high at the time (Sep 2023), my pitch was also good. All of the vent area were open and everything looked good.

I and my buddy (who also just bought a six Moons 2P tent) tried 3 different sites to see if our site selection just wasn’t ideal for these tents. It did not make a difference-still soaking wet to the point of dripping each morning.

I’m an experienced backpacker and was looking for a good 1P+ lightweight tent, which Six Moons purports this tent to be—not the case. I don’t quite know how the reviews are so high, but my experience has shown me I need to look elsewhere.

Best Single person tent

I have owned the Lunar Solo for many years, and it has come with me on many of my adventures. The Lunar Solo is very easy to setup once you know the little tricks. I have setup this tent in the desert, alpine zone, as well as traditional forest locations. It is very roomy, it has enough room for me and my dog when I bring him on those hikes. As mentioned in other reviews, single wall tents have to be setup so there is plenty of air flow so you do not experience condensation. I also bring a small hand towel to help with drying the inside of the tent. The Solo is a extremely tough little tent, and is always been my first choice when I need a tent, but I also still use my Hennessey hammock as well. Six Moons is an excellent company, they stand by their product, and I plan to support them well into the future with my purchases.
