Great Solo Tent!
By Ross Cohen
I have been using the 5 Owls Solo Shelter for my fishing trips all summer. The benefit of not sleeping beside my friends and their dogs is welcome. I also love... Read More how fast the solo shelter can be set up which is basically negligible. So far I have stayed completely dry and relative to most tents, the condensation is minimal, even beside a river. Great product! Read Less

It was nice and comfortable in 40 degree weather
By David Rosner
We set this up in the dark with now problems. It was nice and comfortable in 40 degree weather with my 85lb dog in it as well. I will be using this on bike trips in the future.

The Solo Shelter is great for quick set up and star gazing
By Travis Pahler
The Solo Shelter is great for quick set up and star gazing. I took it white water rafting down the Colorado River, Westwater Canyon. I got to view the 800 year... Read More full moon though the open cockpit and woke up to the sunrise. If you find yourself with a group and just need a single tent, this is the tent for you! Read Less

Very good shelter
By Don Garcia
Very good shelter. The first time I used it was quick to set up even in the dark. The external frame and clipping system works easily both in the set up and tear down. It has... Read More two entrances which allows access to equipment and sleeping quarters. Have not tried it in the rain but day one we woke to heavy dew and all inside was protected. It may be a little heavy for backpacking but for car camping, hunting or fishing It's perfect. Read Less

Fantastic Product!
By TheDonofGaiole
I saw this product used on a Trail Ride in Colorado and fell in love with it. I ordered one for myself and three sons...two of the sons were able to use it in the mountains and... Read More they all sang it's praises. It is very sturdy, light-weight and waterproof. I would recommend it to anyone from the serious camper to the occasional one...and it is a great gift idea.

Love Camping and sleeping under the stars
By Steve
Love camping and sleeping under the stars. With all of the rain we've been having the Solo Shelter kept me dry and protected me from the mosquitos. Best investment ever!

The Perfect One Person Tent
By Matt
Easily the best one person tent I've ever used. Tons of room in the canopy to store your gear, sit up, and generally relax, especially when the weather's... Read More not so nice.

Also, the fact that I can set up the Solo Shelter with the canopy down makes it super easy to get in and out. No more crouching down or hunching over to enter or exit. I keep the canopy down, plop my stuff inside, lay in the sleeping bag, and pull the canopy up over me. Couldn't be easier or more convenient.

While camping with the Solo Shelter, it started to rain in the middle of the night. It took me exactly 5 seconds to go from unobstructed stargazing to total weather protection. Just two quick snaps and the Storm Shelter was up, and I went right back to sleep. Read Less
