About Us

Founded in 2017 and based in LA, Soutono is an eco-friendly team of innovators with love for the outdoors focused on creating high-quality, lightweight backpacking solutions.



When our founder was in architecture school, he went to a lecture focused on the idea of sustainability in building. This got him thinking…how could he marry his three passions (the outdoors, architecture, and design) with the idea of sustainability to create a product that could be used to enjoy the outdoors, but without having any significant impact on the environment?


With that thought, Soutono was born.


Soutono was officially founded in 2017, when our founder gathered a team of highly skilled designers and experts to launch the company and create an initial product: a premium, lightweight, backpacking tent with a modular solar panel, which provides a unique and enjoyable outdoor experience for campers.


Today, Soutono is based in Los Angeles, and the company is focused on using innovative technology and high-quality design to create spacious, lightweight, solar-powered backpacking and camping tents for a superior user experience. Soutono's solar-powered tents simultaneously benefit the environment and the user by harnessing the energy of the sun to create power.




The world is vast and there's a lot of it to see. We believe you should see it all from start to finish. From south to north (that's where our name comes from: Sou > to > No). Begin at the glaciers of Patagonia and end at the northern lights of Norway. Your Soutono tent will be there to keep you company (and comfortable) every step of the way.
