SoLong 6

rated 5 of 5 stars For the weight, this extra-large, one-person tent is HUGE! It is easy to learn how to pitch this tent in under three minutes using your hiking poles and six stakes. I bought this tent secondhand, but the previous owner only used it a few times, so it was still smelling new. I wanted a trekking pole supported tent so I could drop weight by not carrying tent poles. I looked at and tried several tents, including the Tarptent Notch and the Lightheart Gear Solo. Ultimately, I settled on the Solong 6… Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars Sweet combination of low weight, durability, storm-worthiness, and room for two large people! I have owned over 20 tents in the last 25 years, and I have my new favorite. All LightHeartGear tents are now made in North Carolina too!! TVThis is not my first tent, but it may be my last!!! I needed to get a true two-person tent, and I decided to sell my LightHeartGear SoLong6, as it is more of a 1 1/2 person tent. I loved it, but I am 6'1" 295# and I like to bring my son, who is 6'4", so we needed a… Full review

Solo

rated 2 of 5 stars Lightweight, but too prone to condensation. I used a new Solo on a six-day trip in the Sierra Nevada in July. I am 6' 4" tall and weigh 200 lbs. Condensation: This is a major problem and a complete non-starter for me. The weather was wetter than normal for a summer trip in the Sierra but far from extreme. The tent was never pitched in a sheltered area that inhibited air flow. My companion’s Big Agnes Copper Spur 1 remained absolutely dry inside throughout the trip. I had miserable nights on… Full review

Duo

rated 5 of 5 stars Best tent I have ever owned. I completed a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail with this tent and was very pleased. Very light tent that packs up small, fit in outer pocket of my backpack. I slept in this tent for six months almost every night with no problems. I set it up in the rain, sleet, and high wind and never got wet. To say the least I did not treat this tent very kind but it held up great. Full review

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. 3/26/15:  Updated a few notes in italics after additional trips. 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… Full review
