SoLong 6

rated 4 of 5 stars Great lightweight tent. Sets up quickly and dry in the rain. Headroom and floorspace are more than enough for this 6 footer. The awning option works well in most weather. Being a hybrid double-single wall tent, there is a slight condensation issue, but it is manageable. I bought the Solong 6 after considering tarptents and other excellent choices. Being in N.C. and visiting Judy at the LightHeart shop helped make my decision. This is a quality built tent. After a few test runs, setting it up is… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Great tent; good customer service. I just used this tent during an 8-day hike of the PCT. I found it easy to set up and liked the ability to roll up the fly so I could sleep "under the stars". I found the customer service to be quite good and I was glad to have them do the seam sealing; it was a chore I was glad to delegate. At 6'2" I had plenty of room in the tent for me and my gear. Finally, the tent is quite light. I highly recommend the tent. Full review

Solo Cuben

rated 5 of 5 stars Shelter that hits the sweet spot between function and weight. I have a Solo in Cuben fiber, with ti stakes and stuff sack — total complete shelter weight is 23 ounces. I hike in the wettest part of North America (mid coast of BC) and this tent keeps me comfortable, protected and dry. Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars Initially I hated this tent. Initially I hated this tent. The floor was SLICK. I could not keep a Thermarest under me. Terrible sleeping condition. Everyone I ran into who had the Lightheart had the same issue. E-mailed Lightheart. They had no suggestions to help and said that I should have known the floor would be slick despite their application of seam sealer to the floor. Their solution was for me to buy a new and different tent at the outfitters in Franklin. WOW! Ultimately I added more seam… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars A super-lightweight, sturdy, and very roomy solo tent with great open views when in net-tent mode. This is a great solo shelter. Especially if you use trekking poles when hiking, this tent is super-lightweight (because you will use your trekking poles to support the tent rather than lugging additional tent poles). Pitching the tent is easy and fast, though might take a little getting used to. Floor is a diamond shape, which provides a lot of space but do keep in mind that as you get to the tips… Full review
