The perfect backcountry tent DOES EXIST!
The Sky Solus is an ultralight, four-season, freestanding shelter specialized for the solo alpine hunter. Built to withstand brutal mountain weather but incredibly nimble for pitching in steep, ultra-tight terrain, the Sky Solus crosses the line between a tent and a bivy to give hunters the perfect shelter for pursuing big game deep into the backcountry.
The Solus combines innovative WebTruss™ construction with a compact footprint (~½ the size of the Skyscraper) and a sleek profile to create a weatherproof fortress that can easily be pitched tight to windbreaks, in bony alpine pockets, and on steep slopes. Despite its minimal footprint, the Solus maximizes usable space to provide ample room inside the tent for gear, sleeping, and sitting up to change layers. The two side vestibules provide additional space to store gear and cook, or they can easily be cinched underneath the fly when space is limited.
Thanks to the WebTruss system, the two tent poles can quickly be deployed without having to fight the wind to connect the body of the tent to the poles. Simply run the two poles through the WebTruss and connect to the corners to raise the tent. When you’re setting up camp in the dark after a long day hunting, the compact footprint drastically reduces the time it takes to find a suitable site to pitch the tent. If weather is on the horizon, the rainfly clips to the tent body in seconds, holds tight to the ground, and includes 16 guy line points that can be secured for impenetrable protection from wind, rain, and snow.
Whether you’re camping on a knife-edge ridge before the final attack or dogging the herd deep into the deadfall, the Sky Solus ensures you will always have a weatherproof refuge in remote and unforgiving country.
