By popular demand the Skyscape Trekker is now available with Dual Doors. This allows you to enter and exit from either side of the tent. All Skyscape models utilize a dual fixed length 45" or 115 cm pole support structure. We offer two optional pole types. Our Aluminum poles are very rigid, cost $28 for the pair and add 6 oz or 170 g to the weight of the tent. We also offer a lightweight dual Carbon Fiber pole option. It sales for $60 and adds 3.6 oz or 102 g to the tent weight. The dual pole structure is 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 are 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.Features

Choose a campsite away from low hanging branches, and clear the site of sharp objects such as sticks or rocks. Look for a site on a small rise where water will drain away from the shelter. Setting up the Skyscape Scout is pretty simple, but do practice before heading into the backcountry.
Loosen the guy-lines to their maximum position.
Layout the tent with the pointed end facing the wind.
Stake out the rear corners about 3’ apart. Center the front stake between the two rear stakes. Leaving some slack so the canopy can rise when you set your poles. Stake out the front.Set your hiking poles length to 45 inches.Go inside of your tent.Slip the spreader bar into the pocket at the top of the tent.Slip the tip of hiking pole into the pocket at the end of the spreader bar. Repeat for the other side of tent.Stake out the vestibules and on both sides of the tent.
With the tent setup, adjust the position and tension on your stakes as needed.Allow a half hour for the canopy to relax then re-tension as needed.
If the canopy relaxes more during the night, you can re-tension the tarp without getting out. If you’re using hiking poles to support the tarp, you can re-tension the tarp by extending the pole a little bit.
