"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

Best tent ive had yet

Love it did the seam sealing myself and have used it in 4 seasons in australia in the snow with a tyvek footprint and the carbon pole is a must. Really good in the rain and snow. Been my backcountry hunting tent now for about 5years.

Love this tent!

Just thought I’d leave a review since I’m on year 6 with my lunar solo! I’ve taken it to Algonquin park, New Hampshire, Temagami, and crownland camping. It’s an amazing shelter. Highwinds and heavy rain all night and always stayed dry. Never an issue with this tent. Zippers still work, seams never tore. I camp with a dog or 2…pretty tight in this tent but dogs are rough on gear and this tent has help up for 6 years. I’m currently looking at buying the lunar duo for a bit more space now. I should note also that I’m kinda rough my gear as well. Great product.

great product

I have seen others use this and I loved it. But I am having trouble setting it up. Do you have suggestions on the best sites to guide me? order S53884

Best Solo Tent Ever

I don’t think you could come close to this tent for less that %24500. I have never been a solo tent person but this tent has changed me. Love it.

It's light, the rest is bad

This is a 3 year review: It's very light which is great, that also means it's delicate and the material sags when wet. The material is so slippery, I added silicone to both sides of the floor but my pad still ends up in the corner most nights. You need a very flat surface to pitch it with good tension, so it's not versatile in that respect. Once you seam seal and get a footprint for it, you've spent more money and added weight. The condensation is an issue like all tents, but since it's single layer it ends up all over your face and toe box. I usually have to leave the vestibule slightly open for ventilation, which means wind enters in the night. A small animal jumped on mine, it's claws pierced the tent all over which took a lot of repair. I had animals climb on my other tents with no issues. I miss my Vango Helium, I never sleep well in the Lunar Solo.
