    Quick Overview

    The Mono is a lightweight, one-person (or cosy for two), tunnel shape tent that packs down small and is quick and easy to set up. Suitable for three-season hiking or cycle touring, with its small 'footprint', the Mono can fit in limited spaces other tents can't. It's your own personal shelter, and the right tent to choose if pack-space, weight and ease are your main concerns.

    Mono 1 Person Tent v2 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tent for pitching in narrow places I have an earlier version of this tent which I take backpacking up mountains to camp in tiny spots on top and it does the job perfectly, you can pitch it in such a tiny place, but being very tall (6'2") I find it impossible to sit up and it which makes it very difficult to get dressed or undressed and I have to get outside, which on tops of mountains is frequently inhospitable for temperature to be changing clothes and not to mention having your clothes blow away! So I wish it was a bit taller, but that aside, it is lightweight and does not weigh my pack down too much and enables me to stay overnight in places where a bigger tent would not fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good doer I've used this tent in the Grampians and the High Country in the warmer months and it's a good value doer that's easy and light weight. It's soundly waterproof, quick to put up and take down as well as pack down to a wee size for stuffing inside my pack. It is snug for my 6"1' height but only feels small to me when confined to it in inclement weather. It's snug so forget about having your pack inside the tent with you. I recognised this when buying it and also bought a waterproof cover for my pack. It's a top 3-season hiking tent for the price of it. I've given mine a bit of a battering in the last year and it's still going strong.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good as a first hiking tent I bought this tent several years ago. (green/grey one, maybe v1?) <Pros> -Reasonably light & compact -Extremely simple and quick to set up due to its simple structure and colored poles -Easy to pack up with the plastic buckle on the bag -Enough space so I can always keep my backpack etc in the tent -Handy hooks & pockets inside <Cons> -Can't sit up even under the highest point, I wish the max height was 30-40cm taller like microlight single pole tents in the market so that I can get change easily in the tent/get in and out easily (if this point is improved, I would buy it again) -It doesn't stand without pegs (I couldn't use it in a cave) Overall it's a good one as a first solo hiking tent! :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy enough I've had one of these since 2010 (its the V1, but it looks like not much has changed). It is a simple, sturdy tent that can be dumped in the bush without too much worry about damage. Unlike the other reviewers, I find the Mono very heavy at 1.8 kg: this is 200 g heavier than my 2-person tent, and double the weight of my hennessy hammock. However neither of those are as tough as the Mono, and both cost a LOT more. I probably wouldn't buy another Mono, and I've moved on now and tend towards the big $ ultralight end of the market, but I have absolutely no regrets about buying it as a first solo tent. To be honest, I can barely tel mine's been used after 4 years of regular use. Not bad at all.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job I bought this one last-minute for the Overland track in Tasmania as my 'usual' tent is a two-person, which I didn't have need for on this occasion (in terms of the extra size/weight). The Mono is reasonably light, and packs down reasonably well. The issue I had is that the inner 'droops' quite badly between the two poles, and tensioning the outer sides of the poles really doesn't help much. Hence, while the outer looks quite nice and taut, the inner space is significantly smaller than it would appear. This is amplified by the fact that the Mono is already quite a 'short'/low tent. For the price, I would still buy it again as it fills the need, but I'll keep using my larger two-person tent where the extra kg doesn't matter on shorter hikes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job. Bought it with some reservations as I don't trust Kathmandu's quality. But, happy to say that I have been proven wrong. Used it for 15 days when riding my adventure motorcycle around South Island (NZ) on different terrains. I'm 178cms tall and weigh 90kgs. I was able to store 2 backpacks (1 I used as pillow), my riding suit, helmet inside the tent. I put my boots and some cooking utensils under the fly and they stayed dry in wet weather. I used an air mattress to lie on and further cocooned myself inside a sleeping bag. Managed to get solid 7 - 8hrs of sleep in the tent each night through variety of weather including some really windy and rainy days when staying in the bush. Yes, there is no head-space but I wonder if it's because the designers wanted to save weight and/or make the tent aero-dynamic. I don't mind it too much seeing how the tent packs quite small, holds all my stuff and is reasonably robust. Good one Kathmandu :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tent Plenty of space for my sleeping mat and gear. Small enough to squeeze into the bow of my kayak. Only gripe is being 6 foot tall, its impossible to sit up and tricky to crawl into/out of. Otherwise very cosy, quick to set up and haven't had any condensation issues yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and well designed I brought this tent for one of the great walks. I found it was perfect for the hike. It's lightweight, easy to put up, sturdy in windy conditions and I've had no leaks in the rain. There isn't much space but that's what I'd expect of a lightweight 1 person tent. There is a small porch in which to place your boots but you may need to sleep with your pack inside the tent.
