Best tents for solo camping

I'm looking to start solo camping and need to purchase new gear.  I've never camped alone and I'm starting off easy with a walk-in site. I typically only camp a few times a year but I'm really just looking for something I can set up easily and quickly. My previous camping experience was always with a partner. I sold my larger tent in hopes of getting something more suitable for one person.

Any recommendations for an overall good tent? Thanks!

Hi @tobeinmt 

I personally love REI's Half Dome Tent series and ALPS Mountaineering's Lynx Tent series. Here is a link to a similar post where I wrote a response reviewing the two tent series that I have mentioned.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions don't be afraid to ask!
