I’m a tenter. Had enough of tarps back in the day when I could not afford a good tent.
That said, my choice for the lightest weight, fully enclosed tent is a Six Moon Designs Skyscape Cuben fiber tent (IF they still made it).
Does anyone here have one of these rare Cuben Skyscape birds?Jun 5, 2017 at 6:02 pm #3471714
I do. Been using one since they first came out. It is a great 3 season choice for the Sierra, or similar conditions, IME.Jun 12, 2017 at 4:50 pm #3473014

I do and I love it!!!! I have the two door and have been stuck cooking in it, enough room in vestibules for all equipment and to cook. Awesome tent hard to find now!Jun 21, 2017 at 2:28 pm #3474509
Yep Kristine, it’s not in production “at the moment”. Maybe SMD is waiting for enough inquires about it – or not.
I ws unaware that SMD made a 2-door Skyscape. My Tarptent Moment DW ha two doors/vestibules and I like that feature.Jun 23, 2017 at 8:37 am #3474972

Just wondering how they hold up Ken. As I get into my mid ’70s I am looking at lighter and lighter gear. Since I plan on leaving little cash behind when I go to that big trail in the sky I feel no compunctions about spending a bundle on lighter gear – as long as it is relatively durable and comfortable.
Most of the gear I have now is easily UL but SUL becomes more appealing all the time. A goal is to be still backpacking well into my eighties and then car camping into my 90s, maybe on Mars. A boy can dream…
