  All solo tents are not the same size
  Posted by: pikabike on Feb-16-13 1:46 PM (EST)

For a long time, I used a Eureka Mtn Pass 1XT that was warm (full double-wall) and compact due to use of shorter poles than standard. GREAT for packing into kayak hatch compartments. I bought it from Campmor in either 2003 or early 2004. Last year I finally sold it via craigslist.

Later, I bought a Hilleberg Unna that is also warm and has a full double-wall structure. I like how it is set up with the fly poled up first, and then the body is hung underneath--good for when it's already raining. It also is a few inches wider than the Mtn Pass 1XT, and boy that few inches is nice to have. Hilleberg refers to the Unna as being a 1-person tent that can host two in a pinch, and I agree with their description. It's a wonderful size for one person and dry bags. But it cost much more than the Eureka tent did.

So check out the actual product size specs when comparing 1-person tents. They do vary.
