The Skyscape Trekker is our most versatile solo tent. Its' convenient two-door setup provides lots of external storage under the vestibules. Both vestibules can be configured in different ways or rolled back to open up the tent to over 300-degree views. The Trekker is also our longest shelter with a floor that stretches over 8ft.
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 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 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 am writing this review just to give thanks for your great product. I bought a skyscape trekker in 2017 in preparation for the Te Araroa trail in New Zealand (3000km, north to south) I chose the trekker because of its modest price and the light weight. Also the double usage of my hiking poles made good sense to me. It impressed me greatly, because i slept in it for maybe 2/3 of the nights on the trail (other nights there were hiking huts, although i often preferred my tent:-)) It never tore or sprung a leak and although i carried a tyvek footprint I hardly used that. Putting up and packing in was simple and became complete routine, i think it was one of the simplest designs on the trail . I saw many way more expensive tents fail (think 1000+$) and even my carbon hiking poles only lasted half the trail (and the trail chewed up 2 pairs of hiking boots...) Finally it saved me from the sandflies (and also while in Australia kept me completely free from nasty critters) It did get noisy in high wind but almost never went down (only when misaligned to the wind). Nowadays i still used it when i go camping by motorbike and it looks almost brand new... Buy this small gem, you wont regret it!
I upsized from the the Lunar Solo to the Trekker because I’m 6-2 and the Lunar Solo was just a tad small. First night I slept in the Trekker the wind whipped and it poured rain for hours and this tent performed flawlessly. I use this tent for back country adventure motorcycle trips. Mostly in Colorado. The carbon poles fold up short enough to pack inside my panniers. The length and height of this tent is comfortable for taller people. Easy to set up. Packs super small. Overall, this is a high quality tent. Especially for the price.
I am loving the Skyscape so far. It has plenty of room, which is always hard for me to find because I’m 6’6 and 250lbs. For its size it is very light. It is also very easy to set up. Thanks again Six Moon Designs for a great quality product!!!
The Skyscape Trekker has became my go to shelter for many of my backpacking adventures. It has enough space of me and my gear inside and is very easy to set up. I've used it in very heavy winds and at no point did I feel the wind or feel the shelter was going to have a failure. I would recommend this tent for any backpacker!
* It may be strange to use Google translation, I live in Tokyo, Japan. I have had the opportunity to use it twice outdoors so far, the first was Hakone in the rain of Izu, and the second was Lake Motosu, near the windy Fuji. Neither was good weather, but this tent worked so well that it never spilled out of rain or wind! In Japan, there are many days when the humidity is high, and the tent is considered to be condensed, but this tent seems to cover it with good ventilation. If it is exposed to the sun due to the thinness of the material even if it dew condensation, it will not dry and become heavy immediately, I moved it to a mesh bag instead of the attached bag and attached it to the backpack so that it can move while drying . I love this tent which is easy to assemble and clean up and has enough space for one person, and hopes to improve it with lunar solo. "Arigato" to all the people involved in making this tent.
