Skyscape X

rated 5 of 5 stars The SMD Sky Scape-X is an excellent tent for anyone who wants to lighten their pack weight. For such a light tent it is also quite strong and ventilates well. Also a roomy shelter for one person. I couldn't be any happier with this purchase. The Fish Whisperer: First off a little bit about myself. I was born and bred in Mount Shasta, California, and naturally the great outdoors was right out my back door. My stomping grounds are the Trinity Alps, the Trinity Divide, the Russian and Marble Mountain… Full review

Gatewood Cape

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Gatewood Cape is a versatile and clever piece of gear that serves multiple functions so saves a lot of weight and packing volume both by using ultralight materials and by reducing your overall gear item count. It takes the place of some of the larger and heavier items in your pack—your shelter, your rainwear, and your pack cover. This is a review of the Gatewood Cape from Six Moon Designs. SMD is a cottage gear company in Oregon that makes ultralight, high quality shelters and backpacks. I… Full review

Haven Tarp & NetTent

rated 4 of 5 stars Two separate products that can work together or separately, this is a lightweight 2-person shelter system with full coverage and adequate space.

It is only available direct from the manufacturer, Six Moon Designs, a "cottage shop" that makes a variety of tarps, tents, packs, and raingear. I am not… Full review

Skyscape Trekker

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought the previous model with only one door when it was on sale. Held up wonderfully in heavy rain. It pitches with trekking poles and does not require guy lines. Setup: Setup took some getting used to, but once I got it right, it seems like it should be pretty easy to repeat. It doesn't include a footprint. Weather Resistance: I used this tent for two nights with heavy downpours. It requires seams sealing, though I didn't have a chance to do this before my trip. After being out and about during… Full review

Lunar Duo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars VERY roomy, lightweight two-person tent. I've had this tent for about a year now, and I'm very happy with it. I previously had a Mountain Hardwear Hammerhead 3, which was bombproof but huge and heavy. The Lunar Duo does the job at less than half the weight (3 pounds vs 8). I bought the "Explorer," the sil-nylon version. Setup: Pretty straightforward, but it takes a bit of practice, especially if you're doing it alone. I usually have to take a couple passes at the stake-out points and guy lines before… Full review
