Why we made this
Our lightest tent yet, the Sololight is two-season solo tent, perfect for the weight-conscious hiker.
  • Product Description
    If you want to travel solo, fast and light, the Sololight is the tent you’ve been looking for. Engineered for minimal weight, optimal space and weather protection, the Sololight has earned its name. The tent weighs in at just 1.29 kg, and with a single ridge pole, plus two small struts at each end, the Sololight tent maximises liveable volume. The factory seam-sealed fly is constructed with UV20™ PE fabric, a quality material that strikes the balance between weight and performance. Coated with silicone on the outside to repel moisture and PE on the inside for waterproofness, UV20™ PE offers the weather protection you need during the summer. The Sololight utilises mesh extensively throughout the inner, allowing greater airflow for comfort in warmer climates. A generous vestibule provides space for cooking and gear. We've incorporated the Multi-Pitch™ system, allowing you to pitch the fly independent of the inner so that the inner stays dry when packing up in wet conditions. The DAC Featherlite NSL™ poles are green anodised, minimising the use of toxic chemicals during the production process, while also providing strength and stability. The Sololight is designed to support a single person hiking below the snowline in summer. Lighter than the four-season Microlight tent, the Microlight is a better option if you wish to camp above the snowline in all seasons.

More room than you'd believe.
Very happy with my new tent. Surprised how well all my clutter has fitted in. 2 back panniers and 2 front. With still more room for helmet, shoes, water bottles etc.
Had 31km/hr winds last night and just had a bit of fabric rattle.
Haven't been rained on yet.
Saved 1.5kg compared to my old tent.
Only gripe was instructions for putting it up was limited. Especially setting up the fly first. A video would help.
Also the top vent touches the inner tent possible drip source? Am I setting the tent up incorrectly?
Putting the end poles in was very, very tight. Packing fly up with them in so I don't have to battle with them.

Is it good enough on heavy rain condition? or it just OK with lightly ran?
Paul p on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Paul, thank you for your question. This tent is perfect tramping tent for the summer, this tent repels light rain so we wouldn't recommend this tent for use in heavy rain conditions as this tent is designed as a light summer alternative to the Microlight. The Microlight 4 season tent would be better suited for heavy rain as this tent is designed to be waterproof and highly durable. however this tent is slightly heavier than the sololight. Hope this is helpful. Cheers :)
Hi I have the V1 but not used for a while. Is there a video or good instructions for pitching? Thanks.

Hello,
Are you able to buy the tent pole/s separately if they get damaged?
Thanks Sam.
Sam N on Jun 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Sam, our repairs and warranty team try to keep stock of poles, and certainly have a range of spare parts for the tents and tent poles. Thanks.
What is differences between v1 and v2 models?
John C on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello John,

V1 uses a silicone fly and it is a similar design to the Minaret where the tent and the fly are connected so easier when setting up.

The V2 uses Polyester Rip stop with PE coating fly. The setting up is slightly different to the V1 where you pitch the inner first then you put the fly over it. Thanks
