Scout 2 Carbon

Three season, crazylight single wall, trekking pole tent featuring Dyneema® Composite Fabrics

You’ll want to see and feel this tent in action to believe the technical and ultralight performance of the crazylight, carbon version of our classic Scout tent. This is a single-wall, trekking-pole supported structure with a trail weight of 11oz(!), a roomy floor plan, and features that gives two people plenty of space both in length and width. Designed not only with the lightest-weight materials available, but this tent is built with Dyneema® Composite Fabrics - an extremely strong and dynamic fiber that is both highly tear resistant as well as fully waterproof. The Scout 2 Carbon with Dyneema® is an ultralight-weight adventurer’s dream. These products are intended for only the most advanced user. Although extremely strong for their weight, these tents are not indestructible and require careful use to decrease the possibility of damage. Special care during setup and extended trips is important as rough handling, long-term abrasion, exposure to sharp objects or rocky campsite selection may result in fabric punctures and tears. We highly recommend using tent footprints with these tents to improve durability. Self-adhesive repair patches are included in the event that repairs must be made on the trail.

Features

The Scout 2 Carbon is the ultimate single-wall structure featuring Dyneema® Composite Fabric. Packing small and extremely light weight, this tent is engineered to handle the elements like no other trekking-pole supported tent.

This two-person, single-wall tent offers generous living space for trail missions where every ounce of weight and inch of space counts

Exterior trekking-pole design paired with vertical endwalls and over-vertical sidewalls creates a spacious floor plan

Dyneema® Composite Fabric is respected as the premium brand for Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. This fabric is ultralight weight, 100% rainproof and has a high dimensional stability that resists stretching or sagging during temperature changes. Its unique structure creates a fabric with extremely high tear-strength and allows for welded construction, which eliminates seams and the need for seam tape, enhancing its durability and waterproofness. 

Reinforced pockets for your trekking poles keep your tent body protected

Full-body vent system: multiple mesh vents with protective eves keep air circulating while keeping weather out

Vertical, head-entry door with extended dry-entry eve 

Storm flaps on exterior zippers 

Double slider zippers allows for venting from the top or bottom 

Two oversized 3-D bin pockets provide ample storage without encroaching on your livable space

Reflective guylines and webbing on tent corners

These tents are extremely lightweight and require special care to increase their longevity

Use of a footprint is highly encouraged as not using a footprint could quickly damage your floor if you are not careful choosing a campsite selection

To extend the life of your tent floor we recommend using a Big Agnes footprint - sold separately

Multiple interior loops for use with gear lofts or for attaching other accessories

What’s in a Name?

The Hunt Continues: We are all looking for something, right? The original inhabitants of the land now known as Steamboat Springs were the Yampatikas Utes. They were light and fast scouts who found the area ideal for summer hunting. Then came the French fur trappers seeking the finest pelt, ranchers came looking for greener pastures, and lastly the mining boom hit towards the end of the 1800's. Now they say the only scout left is he who seeks stashes of untracked powder, hidden in places we dare not say.
