The Skyscape Scout provides all of the benefits of the Skyscape Trekker shelter at a modest price. It makes it easy for budget hikers to get into lightweight backpacking.
All Skyscape models utilize a dual fixed length 45" or 115 cm pole support structure. We offer two optional pole types, Aluminum or Carbon Fiber. While both poles work well with the Scout, the Aluminum poles are more affordable in price. While our Carbon Fiber poles are half the weight of the Aluminum poles.
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 Wallconstruction 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.

The canopy and floor of the Scout are constructed with 190T Polyester. Since this fabric is used in literally millions of tents, it is very cost effective. Incorporating Polyester fabric into the Scout makes it the most affordable ultralight tent on the market today.
The Scout is perfect for those starting to explore the world of ultralight travel.
The stake single set matches the number of entrances on the Skyscape Scout. We recommend using a larger 8" Easton stake at each vestibule. The larger stakes provide more purchase power in a wide variety of soils.
If you're a cyclist, paddler or don't carry trekking poles, you may wish to consider using aluminum/carbon fiber poles to support your shelter. This lightweight aluminum pole is custom made and designed to be used as your primary tent pole
