Notes:

  3. Dyneema Cuben Fiber shelters do not need to be seam sealed.

Purchase Options

No: Choosing this option indicates that you would like to seam seal the shelter on your own.  We sell the appropriate products on our website as outlined in the chart above. 

Yes: Choosing this option indicates that you are paying an additional fee ($20 or $30 depending on the shelter) to have Six Moon Designs seam seal the shelter for you.

 

Over the years, Six Moon Designs has seam sealed thousands of shelters, so we know a thing or two about the process. If you lack the time or space to properly perform this task, you may consider us as an option. I will say there's nothing like seam sealing your own tent then weathering a storm safe and dry.

Drying Time

We generally allow two days for the tents to cure before shipping. This time can vary depending upon heat and humidity. During warm summer days, curing can be completed in less than 24 hours. On those cold humid winter days, drying can take longer.

Procedures

To seam seal our shelters, we lay them out on a large table and the sealant is injected directly using a bottle with an applicator tip. We have found this method to be effective at penetrating the seams and will provide excellent water protection.

Once all of the seams have been coated, the shelter is then stored to dry in our drying rack. Unfortunately this is the step that’s most likely to cause problems, as hanging shelters can come into contact with each other.

This shelter to shelter contact can allow for some sealer to be deposited on exposed areas of adjacent shelters. This results in a cosmetic issue and in no way compromises the integrity of the sealed seams. If you wish to avoid this potential contact on your shelter, it is recommended that you seal your own tent.

Guarantee

If you purchase a shelter from us and are dissatisfied with the appearance of the seam sealing, you are free to return the unused shelter back to us. You have the option of a full refund or new non-seam sealed shelter. If you select the non-seam sealed option, you will be refunded the difference between the original price of the seam sealing and the shipment of the new tent.

Seam Sealing Service*
28 oz - 790 g Solo Tent - Uses 2 45" Poles

The  Skyscape Trekker for 2018 is now constructed with 100% Silicone coated Polyester material.  The Canopy is 20D material and the floor has been constructed with 40D material for additional strength.  The canopy stretch has been decreased along with the packed volume.    

By popular demand, the Skyscape Trekker now has a higher bathtub floor along the sides and now the crossbar is incorporated into the shelter -- so it will no longer get lost. 


*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.
  • New for 2018 the Skyscape Trekker now features new longer 3mm cord rear guy outs (not shown in photos) which provide improved interior height at the foot and increased ventilation at the rear.  Also new is the addition of reflective guy outs all around.  

    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 more 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 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, light weight 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.
