SJK Tents and Shelters
Description: The simple pole configuration of the SJK Daybreak tents allows for plenty of living space and quick and easy to setup. A single door and single vestibule simplifies the design while the full-coverage rain fly keeps you and your gear dry. For added versatility, the vestibule converts into a shaded porch area. Available in 2-, 3-, 4-, and 6-person models, ranging in size from 30.5 square feet to over 90.
The single pole, single entry door SJK Outpost 4 Tipi Tarp offers an expansive 167 square feet of floor area. A top vent improves air circulation for extra comfort. Aluminum stakes and 7001 series aluminum center pole reduce weight while adding durability. Available in Kryptek Highlander camo ($179.95) or Khaki ($149.95), and priced from $99.95 to $219.95.
Staff perspective: SJK Daybreak tents are a fine option for anglers taking backcountry trips in pursuit their favorite fish species, whether it’s hiking or hauling in for trout in mountain settings or canoeing in for big smallmouths and walleyes on the Canadian Shield lakes of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. When miles of hand-carry portages lie ahead, consider the Daybreak 2-person packs in at only 6 pounds.
The Outpost 4 Tarp is a durable, minimalist shelter ideal for fast and light backcountry adventures. At 4.8 pounds it’s a breeze to pack and carry, with enough room to comfortably sleep four. A fine option, too, to set basecamp for overnight or day-long shore-fishing trips. $179.95.
Cost: $99.95 to $219.95
