Six Moon Designs Skyscape Trekker provides a lot of internal space for such a light tent, achieving this by using trekking poles as its framework and utilising a hybrid single/two skin design.

Six Moon Designs says:

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.

The Lunar Solo's distinctive low hexagonal shape easily spills the wind no matter the direction. Short, steeply sloped sides, handle snow or high winds with ease. A generous canopy covers a 26 sq. ft. sleeping area plus 8.5 sq. ft. of vestibule storage. The 48" peak height, set in the middle of the tent maximizes room for sitting and taking care of chores.

The sleeping area is a surrounded 6-inch deep bathtub floor, topped by 6 inches of mesh. This ensures excellent ventilation while keeping you separated from low canopy walls. This keeps you drier on those occasions when condensation forms on the canopy.

The vestibule is set on the long side of the tent to maximize views and ventilation when fully open. Close it and you've got phenomenal protection from the worst storms.

A 2012 redesign raised the canopy 3" (up to 48") and offset the pole. The result was considerably more headroom. Extending the floor to 90" and making end walls vertical enhances sleeping for taller individuals. The slight reduction in floor space is more than compensated for by better weather handling. With more vertical walls, the Lunar Solo easily sheds wind and snow.

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.
