Six Moon Designs - Lunar Solo LE
As with the Lunar Solo, its hexagonal shape spills wind and sheds snow, making it a very secure home in severe weather.
The low hexagonal shape easily sheds the wind no matter the direction. Short steeply-sloped sides handle snow or high winds with ease. A generous canopy covers a 26 sq. ft. sleeping area plus 8.5 sq. ft. of vestibule storage. The 48" peak height, set in the middle of the tent, maximizes room for sitting and taking care of chores.
Polyester is hydrophobic so it repels water. Unlike sil-nylon it doesn't tend to stretch when it gets cold. So it stays more rigid once it's set up. Polyester is more resistant to UV light. So it receives less damage when set up for longer periods of time. Finally, the Polyester fabric is fire rated but we still recommend you keep it away from any flame source.
The sleeping area is surrounded by a 6-inch-deep bathtub floor, topped by 6 inches of mesh. This ensures excellent ventilation while keeping you separated from low canopy walls. This keeps you drier on those occasions when condensation forms on the canopy.
The vestibule is set on the long side of the tent to maximize views and ventilation when fully open. Close it and you've got phenomenal protection from the worst storms.
Expected to resume shipping in mid-April 2017.

Questions & Answers
Thank you for your question.
The Lunar Solo LE does require a 49" pole, so you unfortunately be unable to use your 100cm trekking pole assuming it is a fixed length. Your best bet would be to carry either Six Moon's 49" Carbon Fiber pole, which at 1.8 oz and $30 is not an awful weight or cost imposition, or an adjustable trekking pole that could work as both your 100cm trekking pole and as a 49" tent pole. Otherwise, you could likely fashion an extension to your current trekking pole with a little ingenuity, but unfortunately we do not sell any formal pole extenders, and it may end up costing more in time, weight and effort than the Carbon pole from Six Moons.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
