"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

Spacious and solid

I’ve owned many tents over my 40 year outdoor career but this is my first trekking pole tent, and my first single wall tent. I was considering tarp and bivy combos but need bug and rain protection very frequently and honestly for the weight and bulk the solo made more sense since even the lightest bivies and silpoly tarps weigh in at 16 ounces or so, with a lot more fiddle factor than this tent. The setup is easy and anyone complaining about having a hard time getting a good taut pitch must not have watched the video they send you when you buy this tent. Start by staking rear corners so that the stake is inline with the seams, put in the pole, stake out the front door, then stake the rest and tighten. Unless you have really bad site selection it’s flawless to pitch. Mine has held up to very heavy steady rain and kept me dry, tho I worry about wind driven rain into the vestibule area, so far it’s never been a problem. Mine has held up to sustained winds 30mph or more and when using the side tie outs the flapping was tolerable. Speaking of side tie outs, use them, always. It opens up the head room considerably. The sil poly fabric is awesome too. No stretch, doesn’t absorb water, crucial on wet Appalachian days. Folks with nylon tents will be packing a gallon of water but this thing shakes right off and packs away, I’ll never buy another silnylon tent. Anyway this thing rules and imo there is very little you could do to improve it. Highly recommend.

A solid performer made by great people

I have had my Lunar Solo for a few years now, so this is a little late. But it's never too late to let people know 1) what a great tent this is and 2) the awesome level of customer service provided by the folks at Six Moons. The tent itself is lightweight but tough and very packable. Obtaining the perfect pitch is a breeze although I have had difficulty setting up in very high winds (think 40-50 mph at GUMO). The interior is spacious and well ventilated; the Lunar Solo checks all the boxes for a great trekking pole tent. Now for the people at Six Moons--they are the best! I had an issue with the tent having a teeny defect; they made good on the replacement AND threw in seam sealing because I had already done that myself. The return and replacement was accomplished in like two weeks so I was able to make my planned trip. Also, I have had a Silver Shadow Carbon Umbrella for a few years as well and used it extensively for both rain and shade. When one of the ribs popped out, I contacted Six Moons to see about a repair. They replaced the umbrella!! I did not ask them to and was more than happy to send it in for repair, but they insisted on replacing it. What great people!! And, yes, if you are thinking about getting a Silver Shadow and are unsure, just do it. I use mine even more than I thought I would!!

Solo after the Duo

I've used the Lunar Duo for many years without issue, and when looking for a smaller tent for lightweight trips and SUP / river camping, the Solo seemed like a good choice. After several nights so far in the woods and camped along the river in all kinds of bad weather, I really like it. It's very easy to set up and provides just enough room for one person and some gear. This is my second Six Moons tent for several reasons - cost, ease of use, quality design, weight, packability, and durability. Thanks for this awesome piece of gear. I'm only wishing this tent was available when I did my through hike in the1990s! Good job y'all.
