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.

Loving this tent!

Have been using this tent for several months and really love it. I paid for the seam sealing the then added a bit extra to the included roof support area. Have been through two decent storms with no leaks or issues and manage to keep my pack tucked in by my legs most nights. I’m 6’2”, 225, size 15 shoes, so not a small guy. It’s a well thought out tent that weighs next to nothing compared to many other choices out there.

Initial thoughts

While have yet to take the tent out on the trail. I have had the opportunity to set the tent up in the backyard and subject it to a storm system that produced high winds, heavy rain and a couple of tornadoes. The day after storm passed I checked the inside and it was dry. As someone who is tall (6’9”) I find that I can lay down and sit up in this tent with some room to spare.
