REI Skyward Tent Review — CleverHiker
AFFORDABLE – The Skyward is an exceptional value considering the good quality of its poles and materials. Closely competing tents are often $50-$100 more expensive. You could spend less on a low-quality tent, but tents made with cheap materials may only last for one summer since they’re prone to breaking. In our experience, it’s much better to spend a little more on a longer-lasting tent, like the Skyward, that will be reliable for years to come.
QUALITY POLES & MATERIALS – The Skyward stands out among the camping tents we’ve tested because it’s made with high-quality fabrics and comes with stout, aluminum poles. The mesh, sidewalls, bathtub floor, and rainfly materials all feel durable enough to withstand the stresses of stormy weather and repeated use in challenging conditions. The hardware, including the zippers and rainfly attachment buckles, also feel tight and secure while being exceptionally user-friendly.
