Description

A three-season tent built with a hybrid single/double-wall construction, the Black Diamond Skylight offers ample room for two people and a very friendly fit for three. The tent’s front third has a mesh inner wall for excellent ventilation and a panoramic view. The attached NanoShield® canopy can be rolled up in nice weather or rolled down for a spacious vestibule and protection in adverse conditions. The rear two-thirds is composed of a single wall of NanoShield for breathability and water resistance. The internal DAC Featherlite tent poles offer a high strength-to-weight ratio and keep the tent quiet in gusty conditions. For interior organization, the Skylight has four mesh pockets.

  • 3 internal DAC Featherlite poles
  • 4 interior mesh pockets

Rated 4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite tent ever, and have had many! The greatest part is the weight, for three person cant be beat. Can be put in very extreme wind conditions if tied down correctly. Waterproofness; not 100% but about 90, will leak tiny bits in very wet conditions but in reality you can easily bring in more water with a soaking jacket or pants. Has never been so bad as to soak a sleeping bag, just some damp mornings, which I think is just fine. I have left it set up for extended periods on a platform and in shade and used it every night to sleep on an island off the coast of Maine(can be very windy and rainy) from june to november, very durable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent and roomy lightweight tent My dog son and I can comfortably sleep in the tent. Haven't had any issues with condensation, but haven't been anywhere humid either. Packs small and light. Great tent! February 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great in a dry climate So this tent is super light and very easy to setup and tear down with a little practice. It holds up in high winds pretty well. But as with any single wall tent, you're going to end up with condensation. I will say that it does dry pretty quickly once the sun hits it but it will get wet at night. In Colorado (dry) during the summer it worked great. In Minnesota (wet) I've had a similar experience to the other reviewer where I got soaked inside during an intense rain storm because the water worked it's way through the fabric then rained down on the inside. The bottom line is that I think it's a great tent if you're using it in the proper environment and understand it's limitations ahead of time. I would buy again and recommend it with the above caveats. October 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tent. I have used this tent for four years in Alaska. Great superlight tent and has proven itself in Alaska's rainy, windy autumns year after year. Before getting this tent I used a NF VE-25 and this tent performs better with nearly half the weight. Love it. September 25, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great design; wet wet wet Once we got used to the interior-pole set-up, we were happy with the design of this tent. It's roomy for two (tall) people, has a nice vestibule, and plenty of headroom. However, we've used it in several rainstorms and have gotten soaked inside. The rain drips through the fabric, puddles on the floor, and absolutely does not keep things dry inside. We did a meticulous seam-seal job when we got the tent, and it's not the seams that are leaking, it's the fabric. We plan on returning it. We want to love it, but need to stay dry - that's what tents are for! September 24, 2013
