Ask a question about this product

All Skyscape models utilize a dual (trekking or optional fixed length 45" or 115 cm) pole support structure, slightly offset from the center of the tent. The offset yields extra head room when lying down, reducing that claustrophobic feeling. Further, it allows the Skyscape to be extremely rigid when guyed out, creating a structure capable of riding out the worst storms.

The Skyscape employs Hybrid Double Wall construction. Over 80% of the canopy is separated from you by a mesh wall, keeping that wet canopy at bay. The Hybrid Double Wall construction allows the vestibules roll back. On warm summer nights, convert the Skyscape into a net tent, pesky bugs stay outside while you enjoy the views and breezes.

The Skyscape's large side entry door lets you easily enter the tent or retrieve gear . With floor length over 100 inches, the Skyscape accommodates the tallest hikers. You can carry a light tent and still sleep well.

Scout Model

The canopy and floor of the Scout are constructed with 190T Polyester. Since this fabric is used in literally millions of tents, it is very cost effective. Incorporating Polyester fabric into the Scout makes it the most affordable ultralight tent on the market today.

The Scout is perfect for those starting to explore the world of ultralight travel.

After 3 multi-day backpacking trips in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, I have the following comments:rnThings I like: Light weight, packs small, room enough inside for me and my pack, vestibule big enough for my boots, price. rnThings I don't like: Condensation. I am 5'9" and during the course of the night my feet will touch the top of the tent and condensation will soak the foot of my sleeping bag. I have to put my rain coat over the foot of my sleeping bag to keep condensation from soaking my sleeping bag. Everything inside the tent must be covered or bagged to keep it from getting soaked during the night, but not nearly as bad as sleeping out in the open while raining. rnOverall, a good value for the price. I would give a qualified recommendation to a friend.

This is is amazing. Best bang for your buck. I love the fact that the trekking poles set up inside the tent. Other tent designs the pole to be set up on the outside of the tent. If it is raining I don't want to get out in the rain to tension my trekking pole. This tent is as light as a 1 man tent but it is big enough for 2 people. My wife and I can cuddle up in it just fine. I also love how high the tent is. I can sit up in the tent without feeling trapped. I had another solo tent that I couldn't even turn over in my sleeping bag without hitting my head on the top of the tent. Keep up the great work Six Moon Designs!

First, let me note that I'm an old school backpacker with NO ultralight experience. I used the Scout on a four-day hike through NC's Black Mountains--very rugged terrain on a trail frequently ranked as the "toughest in the East"-- and generally enjoyed the tent. It stood up well to weather, including steady 15 mph winds, gusting to 30 mph. Indeed, I found it far better in the wind with trekking poles than my old Clip Flashlight. The Scout is roomy (Gregory Forester stayed inside with me and I'm 6-3), airy, light, and you can't beat the price. On the downside, I found field set-up a bit tedious with trekking poles, especially if you've got to get it up fast. But that can be managed with some difficulty, even by a geezer like me. Pay attention to the set-up video and practice so that you don't poke a hole in the netting. I had some significant condensation on the single wall after a rainstorm, so packing a Sham-Wow is a good idea. But this is an acceptable trade-off for the weight-savings. Six Moon should also give us a video on how to fold or roll the tent so that if fits back into the stuff sack (which I found essentially useless because of its small size; just rolled the tent and stuffed it into my pack). Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the Scout and may end up purchasing the custom poles. Even with those added, it will beat the weight on many one-person tents.

What a great tent! Lightweight, inexpensive, and easy to setup. I've used it for 5 nights including a night with a steady rain and I have no complaints at all. It can be easily setup in 3 minutes or less. After my two man five pound tent it is a joy to pack and carry this great tent from Six Moon Designs. Ron has done a great job with this product.
