Free-Standing Posture

Most solo tents are light and while that’s a good thing, it also means that they compromise on stability especially if you are planning on camping in a place of high winds. Luckily, the Lynx 1 comes prepared with a freestanding posture for improved stability guaranteeing you piece of mind whether it’s windy or snowing.

Easy to Set Up

The tent comes with a two pole system coupled with a shock-corded aluminum frame and clips that attach easily making it easy to set up for both first timers and long-time enthusiasts.


Owing to the lack of a lot of room inside, it’s important the tent be as well ventilated as possible. The Lynx 1 achieves this by having four half-mesh walls and a single door. No longer do you have to put up with smelly tents or having condensed air inside your tent.


Included with the tent is a fully waterproof vestibule perfect for storing your gear safe and away from harsh weather.

3-Season Ready

Designed for use in 3 season, the tent comes ready to handle any. For those camping in wet areas, ALPS have included a factory sealed fly and a poly taffeta floor complete with 2000mm coating to make sure your tent remains dry although. On top of that, the tent comes with waterproof fly buckles for maximum adjustability.

The tent comes with 7000 Series aluminum poles, 75D 185T poly taffeta floor and fly, well-made clips and guy ropes.

Extra-Large Zippers

Is your tent giving you trouble whenever you are opening or closing the door? ALPS included extra-large zippers on the Lynx 1 door and vestibule for your convenience.
