Big Agnes Scout Plus UL2
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The ultralight, 3-season, 2-person, single-wall Scout Plus UL 2 tent uses your trekking poles (not included) to set up. Carry less than a pound per person for a waterproof shelter and vestibule.
The Scout Plus UL 2 tent from Big Agnes is your ultra light backcountry solution. Setup consists of 2 trekking poles (not included) and multiple guylines (with a reflective material so you don't get tangled up.) The silicone waterproof coating keeps you dry while the eaves keep the rain-water away from the floor of your tent. One vent under each eave keeps the air fresh. One step above the Scout UL 2, The Scout Plus UL2 features a vestibule, allowing you to save space in your tent.
Even if you were never a scout, you'll recognize the old-school camp style of the Big Agnes Scout Plus UL 2-Person 3-Season Tent. It's not your classic canvas number, though--this ultralight shelter weighs in at under two pounds, has mesh panels to keep the air moving, and uses PU- and silicone-coated ripstop nylon and taped seams to keep you dry in a way those canvas army tents never could. It pitches using two trekking poles (one in the front and one in the rear) so don't forget to bring them with you, and a series of stakes, saving you from having to carry tent poles and a heavy rain fly. There are eaves that cover the mesh vents, and even a front vestibule to keep boots and packs out of the tent and the rain. Since they're thoughtful people who have your best interests at heart, the cats at Big Agnes also made the guylines and webbing reflective, so you don't get tangled in wires and bring the Scout crashing down on your partner when you hop out to water the dirt at night.

The Big Agnes Scout Plus 2 is a new-school version of your old-school A-frame wall tent or tarp. This single-wall tent uses your trekking poles for support and sets up in no time. With ample floor space and minimal weight, this is an ultralight shelter you will love. BA designed the Scout with enough vents along the base of the tent for ventilation and eves that pull away for more protection from the elements.
