A super lightweight, hybrid designed three-season tent, the Black Diamond Skylight provides superb shelter at a minimal weight; perfect for the weight conscious mountaineer. The majority of the tent is composed of Black Diamonds NanoShield, a super lightweight and breathable single-skin fabric with an extremely high water resistance due to the Silicone Nanocell coating Black Diamond employ. It is this coating process that allows the fabric to be so soft, light and packable whilst retaining the highest water column rating (HH) of any single layer fabric.
Whilst the tent is, for the most part, single skin; the front third of the tent has a NanoShield canopy that can be rolled back in nice weather to greatly improve ventilation and also, depending on location, open up a great panoramic view. When the canopy is drawn up, you will still have protection from bugs etc. due to the inner mesh wall surrounding the single door.
The tents structure is supported by three internal DAC Featherlite poles, offering an extremely high strength to weight ratio which is vital in stronger wind conditions. If you are forced to stay inside by the conditions then fear not as the Skylight has plenty of space as a two-man including mesh pockets for a bit of organisation of kit.
