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.
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.

I got pretty good mileage out of my first Skyscape Trekker in 8 or more years I had it. Zipper eventually gave up after so much use so I got a new version of this tent.
Fabric seems to be more durable on newer version and just as lightweight. I'm not sure I like integrated crossbar where trekking pole tips go. The reason being I'm not longer able to compress tent in my pack whereas before I always kept crossbar separated. In all this time I never had issues with stability of crossbar so I'm not sure why decision was made to integrate it into the tent without ability to remove it. I left this crossbar behind once, which Six Moon Designs replaced promptly, but I still would prefer to take it out. I wish new colors become available too.
This tent is brilliant. The design is insanely smart where it needs to be and simple where it can be. I know I haven't mastered the ins and outs, but my first overnight went very well. Slept like a baby.
I never write reviews, but felt compelled to on the Skyscape. I absolutely love it. I highly recommend that if you are someone who likes looking up at stars all night, consider this tent. I'm 6'2" and easily fit in this tent. There's room for gear beyond where my head is, as well as the vestibules if need be (don't confuse this with maybe fitting 2 people - it can't do that). Extremely light and small, so it's very easy to pack. A little tricky to set up at first, but after a few trips not hard.
I know the Lunar Solo from Six Moon get's the hype and awards - but for seeing stars all around you at night, I chose the Skyscape. Glad I did. Can't wait to get out and use it again!

Super light and easy to set up. I used this tent on the South Rim, Bright Angel, and North Rim campgrounds at the Grand Canyon. I was happy with how it held up in the varying temps. It stayed pretty warm in the cold and pretty cool in the heat.
Trekking poles worked just as well as the optional tent poles so I left the extra weight behind when I took it on the trail.
