The whole point of going solo camping is to leave stress, distraction, and other people behind, so you might as well ditch some weight while you're at it; take shelter from the grind with the ultralight Fly Creek UL1 1-Person 3-Season Tent from Big Agnes. Designed to give you fully-featured shelter and seriously low weight, the Fly Creek has a silicone- and PU-coated fly with taped seams and a storm flap, but still weighs in with a positively shrimpy trail weight of 1 pound 11 ounces, making it so light that you might turn around because you think you forgot your tent, only to find it securely strapped to your pack. It's simple to set up, with a one-pole DAC Featherlite hub-style design and lightweight DAC Twist Clips, complete with reflective webbing and guylines that help you navigate your campsite in the dark.
If you're looking to save even more weight, you can pack up the Fly Creek without the polyester mesh/nylon tent body, bringing only the fly, poles, and footprint (sold separately) to set up a fast-pitch shelter (Even the J-stakes are designed using ultralight materials.) Although you'll forgo the tent's mesh pocket, you'll still have the roomy vestibule, which can store smelly boots and bulky gear, giving you more room to sleep comfortably without smelling the sweaty feet of a week-long backpacking trip.
The Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 1 is one of the lightest free standing tents ever made. Using ultra-light material and poles this one person tent features DAC hubbed poles, 22 sq ft and 5.5 sq ft vestibule all for under 2 lbs! Very similar to the Big Agnes Seedhouse Superlight 1 tent but pushing the limits of ultra-light. So if you are looking for an ultra-light, minimalist 1 person tent look no further than the Fly Creek. If you like to have space and comfort you probably should look for a larger 1 or 2 man tent.
