INTRODUCING THE SKYSCRAPER 2P
The Skyscraper 2P is a burly 2-person, 4-season, free-standing, double wall tent with a minimum trail weight of 4lb 4oz. At the heart of the Skyscraper 2P is its patented SlingFin WebTruss™ technology. This unique construction system provides unmatched strength, a low wind profile and makes pitching the tent a breeze.
Your tent is your home on the mountain and having plenty of space is key to being comfortable. The Skyscraper 2p offers 32 sq ft of floor space and an interior height of 41.5 in. We also 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.
Thanks to world-renowned and legendary tent designer, Martin Zemitis, mountain hunters now have access to a tent unlike any they have ever seen. Martin’s vast experience in mountaineering product development with companies such as the North Face and Mountain Hardwear has led him to design shelters that have protected mountaineers on the planets largest and most dangerous mountain expeditions. Most notably designing a shelter for Babu Chiri Sherpa, the only man to ever spend the night on the summit of Mt. Everest. At the core of Martin’s tent designs is the patented WebTruss Technology. It was with Martin’s current company, SlingFin, that Stone Glacier was able to tap into the brilliance and bring mountain hunters a true 4-season tent that weighs less than 5lbs!
Think of the WebTruss as a framework that can be used in a variety of combinations based on the needs of your trip and the country you are hunting.
Pole sleeves distribute force evenly over a tent body, but when setting up a sleeve tent in high winds, the tent acts as a kite until the last pole is placed. For this reason, clip-style tents have dominated the market for high-altitude mountaineering. However, clip-style tents produce uneven amounts of stress and tension on the tent body. With the WebTruss, you combine the ease of a clip system and the strength of a sleeve system. Throw your flysheet over the WebTruss, and you can finish installing the tent body while being protected from the elements. The WebTruss is formed from 6/6 nylon fabric, and the tent fabric is a combination of 15D and 20D Nylon Ripstop.
