I looked long and hard at solo tents and finally chose the Baku. This tent has the best of both worlds combining single and double wall features. I was tired of fumbling with a separate fly, this tent is super easy to pitch and keeps the inside dry in the rain. The vestibule gives you a place to stash your gear and get in/out via the opposite door without crawling all over your stuff. The side with the vestibule is entirely mesh which takes away from that cooped up feeling if your stuck inside due to weather. The ventilation is great and somewhat misrepresented in the listing here. In addition to the one mesh wall there is also a vent at either end of the tent and the top portion of the second door. I'm 5'11" and have a few inches of wiggle room at my head/toe. I can sit up in the tent as well. The Baku also packs down small and is very light. The only thing that is tricky would be getting your pad in the side doors. I use a Big Agnes inflatable and have to wriggle it in there. All in all, I would recommend this tent to anyone. The only issue might be if you are extremely tall but then you might have problems with most solo tents.

I already had a Big Agnes REM Air Core pad and decided to go with their bags as well. Used this for 2 weekend trips in the Indian Peaks and the system performed flawlessly. I am a warm sleeper, so my only caution would be to those who are chilly, a slight draft does come into this one as it is lacking a hood. For me though, my temp. was regulated well and the extra room in this bag was a big plus. Packs down well and light enough for my purposes. I would highly recommend!!!

I have used this twice and twice it's rained on me. I was bone dry, and had no condensation buildup. More than enough room for two, especially with the dual vestibules, which are quite roomy, but very easy for one person to handle. It's a nice bonus that it came with the footprint, attic, and coffee slings. It was a little awkward getting in and out with the vestibule down. Overall, I'm very happy.
