The Skyscape Scout is a fantastic option between a tarp and a tent. The hybrid design gives you plenty of space, a good level of protection and all at a relatively low weight. This is an absolute bargain for anyone looking for a different shelter to get out and explore in.

Six Moon Designs says

The Skyscape Scout provides all of the benefits of the Skyscape shelter at a modest price. It makes it easy for budget hikers to get into lightweight backpacking.

New for 2018 the Skyscape Scout now features new longer 3mm cord rear guy outs  (not shown in photos) which provide improved interior height at the foot and increased ventilation at the rear.  Also new is the addition of reflective guy outs all around.  

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 (sold separately). 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 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.

Scout Model

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 Scoutmakes it the most affordable ultralight tent on the market today.

The Scout is perfect for those starting to explore the world of ultralight travel.

Our Verdict

Six Moon Design's 2018 Skyscape Scout Solo Tent is a fantastic option for the price conscious backpacker. You get a huge amount of tent for your money here. This dual trekking pole, hybrid wall tent gives you an amazing amount of space with good head height, easy access, a good amount of vestibule space and spacious inner. The bathtub floor helps keep the weather out while the updated pitching points increase space at the head and foot ends.

There is a sacrifice for this price and it's in the weight, which is much greater than others from Six Moons. However, it is still amazing value for what you get. The small pack size, simple design and usable features make it a great option for people looking for their first tent or anyone looking for another solo shelter option that doesn't break the bank.

Product FAQ:

Do the Six Moon Designs tents and shelters come already seam sealed?

Six Moon Designs currently only offer non-seam sealed tents and tarps to their dealers. Due to the volume of seam sealing for their own direct orders this service is also not currently available for special orders either. SMD are hoping to be able to start offering this service to dealers again in the future.
