I’ve had my lunar solo for coming up on a year (bought July 2022). It has seen beautiful weather, also high winds, heavy rains, below freezing temperatures, and some humid and muggy nights. All while keeping me comfortable, dry, and protected. It feels sturdy and secure for an ultralight tent. Also having great ventilation. The following are my opinions about the Lunar Solo based on my experience. Take it for what it’s worth :).
Pros: price, weight, and quality are basically unbeatable for a 1.5lb shelter. It’s quite easy to setup, don’t let those videos of difficult setup scare you. If you can set a tent you’ll be fine. Very spacious floor space. Neo air pad fits easily and ample room for a 65-75 L pack next to you inside. I’m 5’10” and neither my head or feet touch ends while laying down. It has a hanging clip inside that’s nice for a head lamp or thermometer. Take the time to guy out the walls it increases the space you can sit up in by a lot. It also reduces wind flap on the whole tent. I also love the prusik knot of the front door guy line that allows for a more ventilated opening while still covering some of the vestibule. The material is thick enough it is not see through. So you have privacy. There’s many more pros but that gets you some info.
Cons: you gotta seam seal it or have it seam sealed :-/. I seam sealed the tent myself, not bad took an hour but I took my time. I got the green color it’s nice but I think I’d prefer the grey. Better ambient lighting in the mornings. The mesh on the tent is fragile it does not like to be roughly stuffed in the stuff sack, so I recommend you fold it up and roll it up to get it back in the stuff sack. Sometimes the mesh has to be massaged to remove the bunching up of it. It has NOT torn and since I fold and roll it up it reduces the mesh issue. But it’s UL so there’s care needed there. Sitting up there’s not a ton of places you can sit fully up on your air pad without touching the ceiling. Not a deal breaker just be aware (I’m 5’10”). It will flap in the wind if you don’t guy out the side walls. It’s easy to over tighten the tension adjusters and put too much tension on the front zipper. Make sure you have it closed before you adjust after staking it. If the ground is rocky it can take a while to pitch the tent. Sometimes I use big rocks instead of staking it still gets a decent pitch. There are probably some more but those are the main things I can think of.
Overall, this is a fantastic shelter option. I cannot speak more highly of it. I would definitely recommend it! For $260 you have as much space inside as some two man tents and it’s sub two pounds for the two to three hundred dollar range. Great deal! Just say yes, after almost a year it’s in great condition!
I use my Lunar Solo since three years now, most time when traveling with my motorbike, and I love, how much safe space this small package offers.
The (green) one I purchased now is my son's birthday-present, he couldn't find a better one.
He will use it more than I do for what it is made for, hiking and bicycle-Trips.
I was looking for a lightweight tent that was durable at the same time. This seems to be it!! There is a big learning curve trying to get setup just right. Took a couple of hours to get it right, but I can set this tent up anywhere now. Used it for the first time last night 10-15 MPH wind not bit of breeze in the tent. LOTS OF ROOM for one person. I'm 6'2" and have lots of head and foot room, plus room for my backpack. The only concern that I have is the wear and tear the guidelines seem to take, I carry extra cord that size anyway. Might want to replace the guidelines once a year or so. I highly recommend this tent!!!
First of all I would like to say how good the customer service was with this company. I ordered the tent from BC, Canada and they had it shipped and delivered in 3 days. When I had a question, they answered the phone promptly, and were pleasant to deal with. First tent that I had to seam seal. I had read previous reviews and decided to do it myself, ensuring a neat finish. Took some time to do it properly. The tent is easy enough to pitch. I can see it being a little tricker without level ground. Once in the garage to seam seal, and then I took it camping one night in some wet miserable weather. No leaks, some condensation, but better than I expected. Wiped down the inside with a micro fibre cloth. Enough headroom to sit up for a six foot person. Stayed dry in the tent. Looking forward to this lightweight tent for overnight hiking trips. I have used bivys in the past. They will be put aside. This tent being approx 2lbs, will be my new trekking tent replacement. Lots of room in this shelter, like a 1.5 person tent. The instructional videos made the set up relatively easy. The tyvek footprint is the perfect size. Will wash a few times to soften up. Had no wind so I can’t comment on that, but I’m sure with all 8 guy lines being used, it should be decent. I like the ability to slide open the front vestibule for a better view and air flow. This is a single wall tent so it will have some limitations vs a double wall tent. My one concern is that the floating floor could let in rain from splash back. We will see how it performs in the long run for durability, plus windy situations, thus giving it a 4/5 rating. Sounds like for the most part, they stand behind their product, and they follow up with customer service for any warranty issues.
Awesome tent in rugged conditions. My son and I setup our tents in 40+ mph winds in Patagonia. My Nemo Hornet was flattened to the ground by wind. My son's Lunar was rock solid. Very impressive.
