Review: Lunar Solo Tent

The Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo is easy to pitch right out of the box. The single-pole setup makes the tent straightforward and intuitive to set up. The interior space is impressive for a one-person shelter, providing plenty of room for a large sleeping pad, gear, and even a furry friend.

The tents do not come seam sealed, but it was easy to do which and took about 20 minutes using some GearAid seam-sealer. The Sil-poly material feels light yet durable and is less prone to stretching when wet. Ventilation is quite good for a single-wall shelter, with a large peak vent and mesh around the entire bathtub floor, allowing air to circulate from the bottom. Any condensation that forms on the walls overnight can run down and exit through the mesh, rather than pooling in the corners.

The unique vestibule clip and prusik knot allow for additional adjustments for ventilation or for enjoying a beautiful panoramic view. The tent packs down very small, fitting easily into the accompanying stuff sack. After seam-sealing, the tent weighs just over 24 oz, including the stuff sack, giving it a great space-to-weight ratio.

If you're in the market for a one-person shelter that offers extra space, durability, and an affordable price, the Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo is worth considering.
