User Review: Black Diamond Skylight
Ease of Setup: easy
Price Paid: $400
The biggest strength of this tent is its low weight relative to its size. I also like the design that allows stargazing at night, and the build quality.
Contrary to previous reviewers I have no problems setting it up. It takes me no longer than five minutes to set up. The tent is not advertised as waterproof, so it is no surprise that it starts to leak after extended rain. However, it did not leak during three hours of heavy rain. Due to the light weight, the tent does not leave the impression of taking abuse well. According to the owner's manual, it is also sensitive to UV radiation. If I need a rugged, waterproof tent, I pick the Bibler Ahwahnee which however weighs more.
Taken together, this tent performs very well and as advertised. However, if you look for a waterproof, rugged tent the Skylight may not be the right choice. I like it very much for its low weight, the nice design and build quality.
