Yakima SkyRise Roof Top Tent

File this one under “Aaron’s Christmas Wishlist.”

The SkyRise is Yakima’s first entry into the tent market, but seeing as how it mounts to your roof rack, it makes sense. Instead of searching for the perfect spot free of roots and rocks to make camp, you just put your vehicle in park and pop up the tent. For those who like to car camp (like me), it looks like the SkyRise will make getting into the woods quicker and easier.

The tent itself is constructed from 210D ripstop nylon, with a waterproof polyurethane coating. For star-gazing, the SkyRise has a mesh roof. Should the weather turn on you, there is a rainfly included as well. Two sizes of the SkyRise will be offered. The small will fit two adults, while the medium will sleep up to three. Full specs from Yakima are below.

Shared features:

  • Rugged 210D nylon tent body is certified fire-resistant, breathable and exceptionally lightweight
  • Mesh panel improves ventilation, allows view of starry skies
  • 210D nylon rainfly with PU coating is waterproof and durable
