Sololite Tent Pitching Instructions

The Wild Country Sololite is a truly versatile one-person tent, and with a packed weight of less than 2 kg is ideal for the lightweight backpacker on a budget. Read the Sololite tent pitching instructions below:

  1. Lay out the flysheet and inner tent, with the flysheet uppermost.
  2. Carefully join the pole sections together for both the long and short poles (the long pole has 3 end tips, one red and 2 silver).
  3. Match the red pole end-tip, to the red flysheet eyelet tape and insert.
  4. Match the 2 silver end-tips to the blue flysheet eyelet tapes, and insert. The long pole will now be standing over the flysheet and inner tent.
  5. Connect the short pole to the silver pole hubs on each side of the long pole.
  6. The complete pole set will now be standing over the flysheet.
  7. Starting with the centre hooks and working outwards, clip the flysheet to the pole. Ensure that the 1 x single hook in the middle of the roof, locates behind the silver pole.
  8. Ensure that the 2 x single hooks at the side of the tent, located under the side pole hubs B.
  9. Peg out and adjust the flysheet and inner. The flysheet tension can now be varied, if needed, by moving the pole foot to a different eyelet.
  10. Remember to adjust the flysheet tension as conditions alter (the flysheet will tighten in strong sunlight and slacken if it gets wet).

  • 11 x V-angle alloy pegs
  • 2 x Alloy poles
