Instructions:

  • Stake out the 4 corners of the tent keeping the floor slightly taut. Make sure sides are squared off and parallel. 
  • Unzip the mesh door and sit inside on the floor of the tent with the ‘ceiling’ of the tent on top of your head. 
  • Place both trekking poles extended to between 120 cm and 125 cm handle first into the tent in front of you. Insert one trekking pole tip into one side of the ridge pole. 
  • Holding the ridge pole in one hand, raise it to ceiling, while sliding the handle of the trekking pole into position in the center of the side wall panel of the tent. There is Velcro to secure the ridge pole in place. 
  • Slip the second trekking pole tip into the other end of ridge pole and while still holding the ridge pole at the ceiling, slide the second trekking pole handle to its position. 
  • Extend both trekking poles to about 130 cm so that the tent body is taut. Make sure the ridge pole is centered in the ceiling and secured in place with velcro. 
  • Step out of the tent and adjust the Line Locks at the 4 corners as needed so that the corners are standing upright and there is no slack in the end walls of the tent. 
  • Now stake out the fly using the tie out cords provided. The fly will not come all the way down to the ground. It should be 4 inches off the ground to allow airflow under the fly. 
  • In a heavy rain or high humidity, silnylon will have a tendency to stretch and sag a little. This is normal, you can extend the hiking poles a little to tighten the tent and/or re-stake the tent. 
  • For the AWNING, place the tip of the awning pole in the grommet at the tip of the awning, and adjust the placement of the pole so the awning is taut. There is a tie out loop with a line lock at the tip of the awning that will need to be staked out. 
  • To lower the awning for 'storm mode’ remove the awning pole (do not remove the stake to the tie out cord for the awning) and attach a small carabiner to the loop of the line lock, (at the tip of the awning) and the 2 loops that are about 18 inches from the tip of the awning. Tighten the tie out cord going to the tip of the awning so that the fly is now folded and the awning looks the same as the regular fly side. 
  • There is a small loop at the top of the awning, and an elastic cord with a toggle on the underside of the awning, you can roll the awning up for full views and ventilation by securing the toggle to the loop on the outside of the tent.

Fantastic Customer Service

Purchased the SoLong 6 tent and some accessories. Local mail service delivered to wrong address and I never got my package. I emailed LightHeart gear and they replaced my entire shipment and shipped it the next day no questions asked. They also took care of the follow up with the local mail service. Amazing customer service.

Best Tent Ever

Recently took my new Solong on its first trip out. 3 nights and it performed perfectly. It is easier to set up than I imagined and has an incredible amount of room. I was able to bring my pack and all my gear in with me.

I wasn't sure I would like the awning mode but it turns out that it's one of my favorite things in the Solong. That and the huge roof vents. I use a 25x77 rectangular pad and can put my pack at my feet and other stuff sacks and clothes at my head with room to spare.

This is one of the best gear purchases I have ever made!

Can’t be beat!

Bought the Solong 6 a few years ago for a backpack elk hunt in Colorado. I’m 6’5”, so most standard tents just don’t quite fit me, and most that are made for taller folks get extremely heavy. Most of the guys I hunt with are also tall, and two of them ordered LHG Solong’s as soon as we got off the mountain. Zero complaints from any of us! Stayed dry nasty rain storms, and will be a LHG customer for a long time. They’re quite literally the best you’ll find in a 3 season tent!

Perfect UL canoe tripping tent!

All of my canoeing gear is ultralight so that I can single portage. The SoLong 6 is perfect for my needs because it's so roomy and light, and the awning allows me me a morning view of the lake by just opening my eyes! I have many ul solo tents and this one would be hard to beat.
Also, love the adjustable aluminum poles for uneven ground! LightHeart is the only place I have found them.

The one to get!

I'm 6' 8" tall and the 260 pound range. I purchased this tent (in Sil-Nylon) for a successful 2018 Appalachian Trail thru Hike. This tent has amazing room inside! It will easily fit hikers way taller than me. I kept my back pack above my head and had a ton of storage on either side of me. The way they designed the awning system allowed for good ventilation anytime I needed it. I spent 36 hours in this tent during a non stop rain outside Rangeley Maine. Not a single drop inside! I used Leki hiking poles for tent stays and the carbon fiber awning pole. I will be returning to the AT in 2020 for round two. I'll either take this trusted tent or purchase the Sil-Poly Camo version...either way, the So-Long is going with me. The Tyvex foot print is a GREAT companion purchase. After 180 days on trail, there are NO leaks in the floor of the tent. On the nights I chose to sleep in the AT shelters, I used the footprint under my gear to keep it clean and protect my air mattress. The decision to take this tent AGAIN on the AT in 2020 is a no brainer.
