Three season, ultralight single-wall tents using trekking poles for set up

The Scout UL tent series is best described as a new-school take on old-school A-frame wall tents or tarps. These single-wall tents utilize your trekking poles for support and set up in no time. With ample floor space and minimal weight, these ultralight shelters might change the way you think about tents. The Scout Plus UL2 features a spacious vestibule while the Super Scout has an over-sized vestibule, adding minimal weight. We've added large vents along the base of the tent for ventilation and eves that pull away from the tent wall for more protection from the elements.

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.
