iKamper is an independent and global rooftop tent manufacturer based in South Korea, with a U.S. presence based out of the Seattle area. The company crowdfunded its first tent in 2017, the Skycamp, which raised more than $2 million on Kickstarter. They currently sell an upgraded version of that tent, the Skycamp 2.0; their lineup also includes three more tents and a range of accessories.
Skycamp's tents are hard-shell models, with an emphasis on being lightweight and aerodynamic. Their primary appeal is ease of setup; for most tents, it takes less than one minute. They also feature a signature Skyview window. The brand's tents have won multiple Red Dot design awards for their clever designs.
Here’s a quick rundown of iKamper’s offerings.
This is the improved version of iKamper’s original Skycamp tent. It sleeps three adults, or two adults and two children. It comes in three colors: black, white, and rocky black, the latter which has a scratch-resistant coating for protection while off-roading. It weighs 160 pounds and fits on most standard vehicle roof racks.
This tent is a similar concept to the Skycamp 2.0, but it’s smaller, sleeping two adults and a child. It’s lighter, weighing just 120 pounds. It’s also cheaper.
As the name suggests, this is a shorter version of the Skycamp with an extendable shell designed for use with smaller vehicles or on a truck bed rack. It sleeps two and weighs 125 pounds. It comes in black or rocky black.
The X-Cover is a hybrid design for a buyer who wants to carry both a tent and outdoor gear. It features a hardtop with a roof-rack rated to hold 65 pounds; that folds out into a soft-sided tent with double SkyView windows. It sleeps two adults and two children. It weighs 120 pounds. Setup, notably, requires three minutes instead of one.
