Bonfus Solus 1P is an ultralight 3 season tent designed for Nordic conditions.
The design is inspired by the tried-and-tested pyramid design, known for its wind resistance, and uses two poles / trekking poles as support, with the one on the back being lower (85-90cm | 35″) than the one on the front (127-130cm | 50-51″), to limit surface area to the wind without reducing space inside the tent. Check out our Carbon Fiber UL Tent poles to set up our tents when you are cycling, climbing, kayaking or if you do not use trekking poles.
The tent protects you from wind and rain thanks to the tent walls that come close to the terrain, reducing cold winds inside the tent.
A top vent at the front peak (which can be closed as needed, even from inside the tent) contributes to good ventilation.
The tent is extremely easy to set up and requires a minimum of 6 stakes (4 corners as well as front door and back side).
For extra wind protection, there are a total of 14 guyout points that you can use (for up to 12 stakes), so that the tent can be securely anchored when needed. All extra guylines can be removed when weather conditions allow, thanks to detachable linelocs. This way you can reduce the weight even more when possible. The tent comes pre-assembled with guylines at the 10 main anchoring points.
Necessary guyline length (4×1.5m | 4×60″) for the extra 4 mounting points is included, along with 4 extra line locks. Stakes are not included and must be purchased separately.
The vestibule is spacious for cooking and storing your gear.
The entrance door is designed without a zipper to reduce weight. Two locking systems at the bottom and center securely close the two overlapping doors, making the tent completely weatherproof. See pictures for more info.
The mesh door opens with a long curved zipper that gives access to the entire vestibule from inside the tent.
Mosquito nets are integrated on the inside of the tent and stitched to the tent body to protect you from insects and mosquitoes. Inside the tent there is a mesh storage pocket and two hanging hooks for drying clothes, hanging headlamps and more.
All stitches are first sewn and then taped to the outside to increase strength and fully waterproof the seams.
All bearing points, as well as all areas where the tent material is subject to greater stress, are reinforced with durable laser cut 2.92oz Dyneema © Composite Fabric Hybrid.
An ultra-light stuff sack made in 0.51 oz Dyneema® Composite Fabric is included. It is designed so that you can easily pack your tent even with cold hands or gloves.
A 30cm | 12″ long repair tape is included with the tent and can be used for quick but lasting field repairs.
