Solo requires a ridgeline to hold the poles up when the hammock is unoccupied or not attached, whether integrated into your hammock or provided separately (not included). If your hammock doesn’t have a ridgeline but did come with tree straps, you can use a tree strap as a ridgeline, or you can order one from our Parts section. A tarp can also serve this function of a ridgeline.
Tensa4 converts to Tensa Solo for an occasional farther hike, but Tensa Solo does not convert economically to Tensa4. (Many ask after finding that ground anchors aren’t reliable enough in the loose fill dirt beneath their suburban lawns, and here is where we advise you to choose Tensa4 unless you need the hike-friendly portability of Solo.)
- Pole-only variant weight: 30oz/850g

I purchased this as an addition to my Tensa 4 stand. Believe me I enjoy them very much. And I will be using them in the near future. Having great weather in Virginia Beach, VA I sleep outdoors in the yard every Friday and Saturday night. Awesome products. Thank you.

I love both my Tensa4 Hammock Stand as well as my Tensa Solo setup. I used them with my SMR ninox flatlay and was amazed how great they work. When car camping, I use my Tensa4 for my hammock and the Tensa Solo to create a second covered area. Everyone that sees the setup falls in love with it. The Tensa team has a customer for life!

This is a fun, useful piece of equipment. It’s light weight and once you get the hang of it, easy to set up and adjust. Costumer service was stellar because it was really fast and they gave me lots of ideas on how to set up for different situations and ways to be most cost efficient. It always felt like you were dealing with people and being treated like an individual with specific requirements they were trying to support. So far I have only used it in my backyard but it worked great. I was specifically looking for ways to hang my families hammocks (4) closer together with less reliance on just trees. I ended up buying 4 of these. Also they are built well and feeling like it will last many, many years.

Ok this Tensa Solo is the real deal! I purchased one of the Solo Hammock stand with Boomstakes. I have to say you are going to want to practice setting it up. Does it work? Yes! I just returned from an overnight Motorcycle camping trip and I am sooo glad I had my Tensa Solo hammock Stand. One side of the hammock was suspended by a tree the other by the Tensa Solo. I slept so well had I not had the Solo with me it would had been a much rougher night.
More orders coming!
It works great and allows me the peace of mind to hammock camp anywhere.

I used this on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath, where there are trees but not enough of them, and it was awesome. Rock solid, and not hard to figure out.

I wish I had found this sooner. Opens up so many more opportunities for hammock camping. Easy to learn how to set up. No concerns about hitting the ground with the orange screws and webbing. Looking forward to taking it with me on future bicycle trips.

The Tensa Solo is a great option for anyone looking for a lightweight option to expand their options for hammock placement. The main reason I went with the Solo is because I have often found myself not being able to find the right tree placement. The Solo is very simple to setup and is really solid once its all setup. I got the straps VS the amsteel lines so I could get the advantage of using them as tree straps when needed. It requires a ridgeline which some people may not be used to using but I think it actualy make it more comfortable. I purchased the boomstakes as a part of the bundle which here in Missouri is typically a solid option since the ground is often more compact. It takes maybe 5 minutes to get the pole and hammock setup and is easy to setup with 1 person. I can also say that it help up very well with High Winds and rain with a tarp connected and was completely stable.

Just what I was looking for! 😀 I did a little modification for really soft mushy ground. Had I a boom stake pull out on a just after thaw ground. Of course for car camping . I did put me on the ground in my hammock lol
