Soloist is an ultralight, 1-person backpacking tent for multi-day trips and extended bikepacking tours. It's the ultimate multi-day solo shelter.

Lightweight fabric and short pole sections give a compact pack-size weighing just 1.2kg.

The hubbed central pole makes it quick to pitch while the semi-geodesic structure gives extra stability in bad weather. Inside there's room to sit up or get changed and a large porch gives space for storing muddy kit. Soloist can be pitched inner-only or flysheet and footprint together when you want to save even more weight.

Go solo.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
