Alpkit stuff is good at a good price, I just got the new soloist tent.

For food I dehydrate a lot of my own meals, cheap chicken noodles, I had a bag of cheese, powdered mash, some chorizo, packet pasta mix

What are your first impressions of the Soloist tent, dank?

First impressions of it are really good, quick easy pitch, havent found a stitch wrong, with the footprint you can pitch outer first (though it is fiddly and not actually designed to do it so happy accident I guess)
Pitched it is stable have to test it in wind and rain soon though.

I do have a video I've uploaded about it on my channel

Good review. O0


Wonder how the Soloist performs in a strong side wind.

The wind is definitely going to have to be considered when pitching, something I've not had to do for a while. Will have to wait for a windy day and put it to the test
