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:

By popular demand the 2015 Skyscape Trekker is now available with Dual Doors. This allows you to enter and exit from either side of the tent.

Skyscape models utilize a dual (trekking or optional fixed length 45" or 115 cm) pole support structure, slightly offset from the center of the tent. The offset yields extra head room 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 roll back. On warm summer nights, convert the Skyscape into a net tent, pesky bugs stay outside while you enjoy the views and breezes.

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 with silicone nylon. This fabric has been the work horse of fabrics used to build ultralight tents for the last decade. It’s main properties  is its strength, light weight and that it’s impervious to mold or mildew.

The Trekker is a great when you want to be light but don't want to break the bank.

Six Moon Designs' Skyscape Trekker 1P Tent uses your trekking poles to provide support and combines single skin and two skin methods to minimise weight. It achieves very good internal volume for a pretty low weight. Its a little fiddly to erect but when you get the hang of it its goes up quickly and only require five pegs.

The single skin panel above the sleeping area can result in some condensation build up inside the inner tent but this is less of a problem than if the whole tent was single skin. Its a good compromise.

The combination trekking poles and crosspiece that make up the frame provide a really sturdy unit such that when the tent's pegged out it is quite strong, in windy conditions the tent gets blown around but it won't get blown over.

If you use trekking poles anyway the Skyscape Trekker offers a large and comfortable shelter for little weight with a nice design to minimise condensation issues.

Backpacking perfection

I can't tell you enough how much I love this little tent... Well, it's not little, i had room enough for my backpack and all my gear wth room to spare inside. I can pitch it in 3 minutes flat with just 5 little pegs. You can tension it until it twangs which is always reassuring in the wind. It feels thin and fragile but didn't miss a beat on a two week wild camping transit of the Pennine Way. Sleep with your head in the single skin end so condensation doesn't offend your sleeping bag.

This is not a warm tent being partially single skinned. But it will keep the weather and bugs off you in your cosy sleeping bag. Paired with carbon fibre walking poles and titanium pegs this whole setup is well under a kilo.

Love it love it. X
