Skyscraper 2P Tent Review - The Mountain Project
Since 2017 we have been working with The Mountain Project, providing them with packs, tents, and gear. The guys at The Mountain Project push our products to the limits and have become an essential part of our product development process. In short, these guys know gear and don't shy away from telling us what's working and what's not. For that reason alone, we love working with them. Last year we sent our Skyscraper 2P Tent sheep hunting with them. The video above is their honest and unbiased review of the tent. You can read more about their thoughts on Skyscraper 2P Tent over at their website.
"In the Skyscraper, you're getting a massive 2 person, truly 4 season tent that weighs less than 5lbs. And this isn't a "3 1/2" season tent like others are branded. The genius of the patented Web Truss combines the strength of a sleeved tent, with the set-up ease of a tent that uses clips. It's brilliant, and in our use and testing… it works. And if you expect higher than normal winds and/or heavier than normal snowfall, simply strap your trekking poles into the cross pole to add even more strength." - Jay Park, The Mountain Project
"After spending 17 nights (and a few bad-weather days) in the Skyscraper 2P, I am convinced it is the best backpacking tent on the market. September in the Mackenzie Mountains can be unpredictable and unforgiving. That proved to be true with a daily swing of snow, ice, wind, and rain. The Skyscraper’s smart design makes setup easy in these not so favorable conditions. My two favorite things about this tent: It’s only 4 pounds, and the double wall design keeps the condensation off me and my gear." - Chase Christopher, The Mountain Project
Why the Stone Glacier Skyscraper 2P Tent Exists
The Skyscraper 2P is a burly 2-person, 4-season double-wall tent with a minimum trail weight of 4lb 4oz. At the heart of the Skyscraper 2P is the innovative WebTruss™ technology. This unique construction system provides unmatched strength, a low wind profile and makes pitching the tent a breeze. The WebTruss is formed from 6/6 nylon fabric, and the tent fabric is a combination of 15D and 20D Nylon Ripstop. We know keeping gear dry is vital in the backcountry and the Skyscraper 2P has two extra-large vestibules (11 sq ft + 11 sq ft) to accommodate all your gear. In short, the Skyscraper 2P is bomber, a versatile tent designed for the ultralight mountain hunter.
