The Big Agnes Scout 2 Platinum tent is an innovative hybrid tent that blurs the lines between a traditional double-wall tent and a tarp-style shelter. Ultra-lightweight materials and a trekking pole pitch design (poles sold separately) allow the tent to weigh in at just an ounce over 1 pound!
Measuring 84" x 48" (at its widest point), the tapered shelter provides 27 square feet of interior space. This means there is adequate room for two, but, at its weight, the tent can also serve as a super roomy solo shelter. A large door provides convenient entry. An awning-style extension on the tent body provides weather protection and includes "eve" and rear vents that maximize airflow to combat condensation build-up. Integrated storage bins at the head of the tent provide places to stash gear and clothes.
NOTE: The Scout 2 Platinum is NOT freestanding and does require trekking poles or Big Agnes Accessory Backpacking Poles (all sold separately). Integrated guyout points, obvious anchor points, and included reflective guyline do, however, make the tent easier to erect than it may seem at first. Aluminum J stakes are included to secure the pitch.
The silicone-treated nylon rip-stop roof and floor deliver lightweight, durable, waterproof protection. All of the tent's seams are tape-sealed to further protect against the elements. The Big Agnes Scout 2 Platinum Footprint (sold separately) is highly recommended to provide additional protection beneath the tent from mud, ground water and sharp objects like rocks, exposed roots and pine needles.
