LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. (BRAIN) — Yakima Products worked with fellow Oregon-based company Poler Stuff to offer its new limited edition version of the SkyRise rooftop tent.
The Yakima X Poler SkyRise is a new take on Yakima's tent, featuring Poler's signature "fuzzy camo" pattern.
"We're longtime fans of Poler and their down-to-earth vibe, original style and Portland roots. Like Yakima, they're all about getting outdoors your own way," said Summer Henderson, brand director at Yakima. "It's been fun to combine our strengths and blend Poler's unique style sense with our rack design expertise. Together, the Yakima X Poler SkyRise is the ideal set-up for the ultimate adventure mobile."
The SkyRise tent sets up in minutes and turns any terrain into an overnight home that sleeps three.
The light tent body is made of 210d nylon, with a removable cover for a view of the night sky, plus a wall-to-wall 2.5-inch thick foam mattress. The tent has a tool-free vehicle mount, aluminum poles and included SKS Lock Cores to secure the tent to a roof rack. It includes a ladder and all hardware and retails for $1,600.
"We've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to partner with Yakima, and the SkyRise blew us away. It's our ideal for outdoor living: it's fun, eye-catching and original, and it makes you want to get out there," said Benji Wagner, Poler's founder. "It was really cool to collaborate with them and find a way to add some Poler flare to the rooftop tent."
To celebrate the launch, Yakima and Poler are promoting a Spring Adventuremobile Giveaway. The contest runs through the end of May and can be found at yakima.com.
The Yakima X Poler SkyRise is available starting this month through Yakima and Polerstuff.com and Poler's company stores. at yakima.com and select specialty retailers, as well as polerstuff.com and the brand's flagship stores in Portland, Oregon and Laguna, California.
