"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

Lunar Solo Shelter by Lake

Construction

✓ Made with 100% Silicone-coated Polyester material to reduce fabric stretch and pack volume.

✓ 20D canopy and 40D floor keeps the Lunar Solo light but rugged.

✓ 6-in deep bathtub floor helps prevent splash back.

✓ 6-in mesh lining above the bathtub floor increases ventilation and keeps you further from the canopy walls, so you stay nice and dry.

✓ 26 sq. ft. of living space with a peak height of 49 inches – plenty of room for all kinds of seated tasks. Canopy creates an 8.5sq. ft. vestibule for added protection during storms.

✓ Easily pitched with one adjustable trekking pole to 49 inch peak*.

Lunar solo

Decent tent, difficult get a good pitch. I have used it for 9 nights, one of which it rained and I had some water splash in from the bottom. Not a huge deal, but not great either. Setup is easy enough. Biggest issue I’m having is I keep finding tears in the tent, which are happening either when I roll it up or when it’s in my pack. First night I noticed a small tear, and was more careful packing the tent up, but it seems like every time I roll it up and pack it away I find a new one. They aren’t full tears, it’s like something is mashing against it and causing an abrasion that you can see light through. Overall I’m fairly happy with the tent

Great tent

This tent was very easy to set up. I have not taken it backpacking yet but I am planning too soon and am looking forward to it as it’s 2lbs. Lighter than my previous tent.

Mixed Feelings

The art of making a tent this light is difficult. The guide lines require a sufficient amount of space for the tent to perform correctly. The one piece design can be difficult to allow the bath tub floor to be perfect. The top hood seemed to be somewhat imperfect. Where you put you pole in and or trekking pole slot was sewn in a little off.
First use of this shelter was in 48 mph gusts. It held but I bought an aluminum pole which I don’t recommend. The guide tethers from the bath tub floor could be improved that are direct to the guide lines of the tent. No adjustments there. In my opinion not a logical tent for rain. If you not experienced with tents, this may not be a logical choice. I do like its purpose and design .I have never owned a sigle pole tent. I do like it and have no regrets.
