The tent is really ultralight and easy to set up.

  • Summary: The tent is really ultralight and easy to set up. I have no complaints about it because I enjoyed the space and the dryness inside even when it rained the way it rains here in the Philippines. But that was only during the first two or three times that I used it overnight.
  • Pros: Light, Spacious, Easy to set up
  • Cons: Rain water comes in through the sides

  • Excerpt: I'd been after this light-weight tent for a while and picked up a bargian earlier this year on e-bay. The Solo has the quality and features that you'd expect from North Face. I've used it a number of times whilst wildcamping in Cornwall and The Lakes this summer. If you get hold of one I'd advise that you also buy the footprint for it too. This single skin, 2-3 season tent is good but it's not perfect.

  • Excerpt: Recently used in gale force winds in the Cairngorms, Scotland, as first real test. Very strong! Wobbles and shudders in large gusts but didn't buckle, amazing for something with no guylines. Love the small pack size, light weight and rapid pitch. Couple of minor niggles, stuff sack with large webbing and buckles just adds pack weight for no reason and the door zip has a tendency to catch the storm flaps where it curves from the vertical to horizontal.
