As a mountain climber who likes to go solo hiking, you need to prepare adequately so that you are not caught off guard by unpredictable weather patterns. One of the ways to be on top of the game is purchase a tent that can help you out while in the wild. It is equally important to choose gear that will not cost you a fortune, and know the trail pretty well prior to commencing your journey. Having said this, we would recommend Alps Mountaineering Lynx 1 for any newbie hiker who wants to get the most out of any outdoor ventures. I’m saying this based on my previous experiences. This tent is versatile in so many ways that you cannot overlook it in any way.
As stated before, Alps Mountaineering Lynx 1 comes with so many features that you can always enjoy no matter your experience. What I enjoyed about this tent is its freestanding 2-pole design. Actually, based on the fact that the poles are made of aluminum material is always a plus for campers. In this case, you are always guaranteed of longevity and no wind problems when you are out there pitching the tent. Overall, I took me a few minutes to get everything done. It is highly recommended for those who don’t like complex structures that can be a nuisance than help. If you are thinking of getting a pocket-friendly tent, then look no further!
It’s even easier to assemble because of its ready-to-use clips, and with the polyester fly, there is no need to worry about damages. Furthermore, it comes with mesh storage pockets that are quite ideal for all manner of gear; not to mention guy ropes that make pitching a walk in the park. I’m the kind of person who has no patient in setting up tents especially when out there as a solo hiker. I can at least say that this tent saved me a great deal of trouble whenever I was out. It is equally important to note that with half-mesh wall, you never have any troubles with ventilation or anything related.
One thing that made me consider this tent when I had gone camping is the weatherproof fly buckles. As a matter of fact, these offer maximum adjustability. In other words, you will be able to create your desired environment without the need for any professional help. If you are looking for protection, then the waterproof buckles will come in handy. The number 8 zippers are pretty large and you will never struggle with doors or vestibules at all. If you are not sure about the ground where you will be pitching your tent, then definitely this will help you. The Alps Mountaineering Lynx 1 comes with Poly Taffeta floor-2000mm coating, I bet it can’t get better than this.

The Alps Mountaineering Lynx 1 specs are something that will definitely blow your mind, so was I blown by specifics that the tent offered. I really liked the vestibule area that covers an average of 10sq ft and a depth of around 32-inches. Additionally, with a pole diameter averaging 8.5mm and weight that stands at 3 Ibs 8 oz, you get a good bargain for any solo campers. Last but not least, the base size of 7’6 x 2’8 solo hikers will never trouble themselves with space issues anymore.
It goes without saying that the 3’ center height is a plus for both genders-unless you just don’t like the height you can go ahead and get this one for yourself. A tent area of 20sq feet is ideal for anyone who is looking for great space to lay down and rest in the wild. Overall, if you are a solo hiker this tent will save you tons of money and time. Basically, you will still get the most out of your hiking ventures without necessarily spending a fortune.
This tent is great for those who are out camping in windy conditions, and I liked it so much that never experienced any troubles the entire night. Also, it will keep you dry all days you are out there in the wild. It is also lightweight in nature and you can never worry about carrying it around the entire day, before you can pitch it on a good ground. Importantly, the manufacturer ensured that they offer a great design so that you will never feel you’re sleeping in a fox den.
As a hiker or backpacker, you know very well that every tent has flaws. In our case, it was a painful experience for my husband getting in and out of the tent because of his height. All in all, we liked it very much and hopefully, we will be using this in our next outdoor camps.
