28 oz - 790 g Solo Backpacking Tent - Uses 2 45" Poles

With a floor that stretches over 8 feet long, you’ll have plenty of room to stretch out – no matter what your height.

The Skyscape Trekker is our most versatile 3-season tent. It has two massive side entrances, each with its own 8 sq. ft. vestibule. Both flies can be left open for sweeping 300° views. Or you can open and close the vestibules to find the perfect setup for your comfort and current weather conditions. The hybrid double wall design creates a bug-proof mesh interior and keeps that wet canopy at bay. And with an extra-long floor, you can get in a nice morning stretch or stow your gear.

*To completely repel water, shelters need to have sealer applied to the seams before use.
*Shelters including a seam sealing service may not ship immediately.



The Skyscape Trekker is constructed with 100% Silicone coated Polyester material.  The Canopy is 20D material and the floor has been constructed with 40D material for additional strength now available in a dark, olive green colorway. The canopy stretch has been decreased along with the packed volume. The Skyscape Trekker now features longer 1.8 mm cord rear guy outs (not shown in photos) which provide improved interior height at the foot and increased ventilation at the rear. The updated Trekker now features the same cord and tension lock system on the vestibules. 

All Skyscape models utilize a dual fixed length 45" or 115 cm pole support structure to create an A-frame like structure. This can be achieved through the use of trekking poles or our collapsible  Aluminum and  Carbon Fiber Poles (Sold Separately). While both poles work well with the Scout, the Aluminum poles are lower in price, while our Carbon Fiber poles are half the weight.

The dual pole structure is slightly offset from the center of the tent. The offset yields extra headroom 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 a 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 to roll back. On warm summer nights, convert the Skyscape into a net tent; pesky bugs stay outside while you enjoy the view and breeze from inside.

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.

Trekker Model

The canopy and floor of the Trekker are constructed of Silicone Polyester. This fabric has been the workhorse of fabrics used to build ultralight tents for the last decade. Its main properties are its strength, lightweight and that it’s impervious to mold or mildew.

The Trekker is great when you want to be light but don't want to break the bank.

Excited to use it

Haven't taken it out yet, but it is light and is very roomy for one person. Excited to take it out on a trip! I'm 6'3" so the length will be helpful.

Spacious, Lightweight and Awesome

I’ve put 1,200 miles on this tent and I’m extremely happy with it. I’m 6’2” and have plenty of room inside for all my gear including my backpack. I can sit up in my chair with plenty of headroom. The tent weighs in at 2 lbs and I use my trekking poles to set it up. I love the dual vestibules and the options for ventilation and view its very worthy in a windy storm. The single wall portion can get some condensation however it’s easily managed with an absorbent cloth. The bathtub floor is easy to sweep out when packing up.

East peezy

I ordered my tent and asked that it be seam sealed before shipping. I knew it would take extra time but also was getting ready to leave for a couple night hike and didn’t want to pack my 5lb tent. I sent a message saying this and but didn’t expect them to rush. Tent arrived two days before my trip to my surprise. I didn’t have time to set it up but had watched a few videos. I was nervous since I was knee to this type of tent. First time setting it up it took me less than 4 minutes. That night it got cold and when I woke up I had ice on the tent but I was dry and the tent only had a little sag. We had a long hike and I didn’t have time to dry it. When I got to the next camp I only had an hour until bedtime and the tent was fully dry within 20 minutes with no sun. I hate a stuffy tent and the way this one vents allowed fresh air all night. A friend has a different brand but basically the same tent but he paid almost triple for his and already said he might sell his and buy one of these. I’ll be buying more gear in the future and recommending Six Moon to others. Tuba Solo from YouTube should get full credit for this purchase because without watching his videos I would have not ordered it.

What I was looking for

Can’t wait to use it this fall!

LOVE it!

I bought this tent last year. I was set to thru hike the OR PCT when the wildfires happened. I did take it on a 3-day backpacking trip in the Sierra's and could not be happier! Solid design, durable, comfortable and easy to set up. I am preparing to start the TRT soon and this bad boy is going with me!
