Great Solo Tent... Sets up quick, freestanding. Very sturdy in wind. Vestibule is big enough for boots and gear. Kept me dry with blowing wind and rain. Packs small.

It is a solo tent, so don't expect anymore room than to sleep. Best feature is its freestanding. A lot of solo tents are not. I would say it is a warm wx tent being all mesh. I have used in cold which is fine, but a little drafty due to being all mesh. Good tent.

The Mountain Hardwear Halcyon 1 tent is a lightweight, all-mountain tent perfect for the solo backpacker demanding weather protection and livable room. Halcyon pole structure is very stable and creates nearly vertical walls for generous room. Atlas 7001 pole system is lightweight, corrosion- and dent-resistant and completely field serviceable. Pole clips save weight, make setup a cinch and allow superior ventilation between rainfly and tent. Mesh door and mesh panels provide exceptional ventilation and help prevent condensation. Taped, full-coverage polyester rainfly maintains a taut pitch even when wet; nonyellowing, nonclouding, clear SVX film window adds light and views. Dry-entry vestibule design prevents water from dripping inside tent when vestibule is open, improving livability. Rainfly features laminated zipper flap for durability and increased water resistance. For extra stability, each guyout point clips to the frame on the interior side of the rainfly via welded attachment points. All guyout points are reflective for easy identification; canopy pockets keep tent organized. Comes with stuff sacks, stakes, guylines, owner's manual and illustrated pitching instructions. Average minimum weight specification is based on tent, rainfly and poles only. Closeout.


The Mountain Hardwear Halcyon 1 is an extremely light and roomy solo tent. It has a 2 pole freestanding design and is very simple to set up. With room for one with a generous vestibule the Halcyon 1 is a great tent for solo hiking and long distance trips. There is one UVX window in the fly that won't yellow or crack and lets in just enough light. The large side entry door is convenient and easy to use. The end walls are almost vertical to maximize usable space in the tent. On nice clear nights leave the fly off and use the all mesh body to see the stars. All that mesh means that you will have good airflow and should be comfortable on those hot nights and at the same time safe from those biting bugs.
