The lightest of the light, Zpacks' sub-12oz Plex Solo Lite is easily the lightest full-featured one-person tent in the world. Designed for adventurers who value weight but aren't willing to sacrifice performance or comfort, the Plex Solo is the ultimate shelter for weight-conscious hikers looking to redefine boundaries and push limits.

The Plex Solo Lite shares the same dimensions as Zpacks' standard Plex Solo Tent. It utilizes their proven 0.55 oz/sq yd Dyneema® Composite Fabric canopy combined with a .75 oz/sq yd DCF floor material, which is 25% lighter and packs down smaller relative to Zpacks' standard tent floors. The Plex Solo Lite comes preconfigured with bright yellow 1.3 mm Z-Line guy-lines which saves weight compared to the 2 mm guy lines on our standard tents.

Easily pitching with a single 52"/132 cm trekking pole or tent pole, the Plex Solo Lite is well-ventilated and can be set up in even the tightest camp sites. You won’t find a lighter functional one-person tent anywhere.
