The Big Agnes Scout 2-Person 3-Season Tent puts your trekking poles on double duty to cut your weight by removing the need to pack tent poles. The ultra-light design reduces your weight carried per step which can add up to a massive amount of energy saved when you're taking on long-distance through hikes like the Appalachian Trail of the Pacific Crest.

The Scout 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.

Big Agnes Scout 2 Person Tent Reviews:


To give you a bit of background, I live in Jackson, WY and spend most of my free time in the summer hiking and backpacking. (50ish days and almost 500 miles last summer.) For years now I've used and loved Sierra Designs Lightyear. I have both the one and two person versions and it's a solid, simple, and inexpensive tent. I've had it out in high winds, sand, hail, you name it. I would highly recommend it. But, as I've worked to reduce my pack's base weight, I started looking for a lighter option.
I didn't like using a tarp due to water splashing when it rains, the ability to accidentally knock gear out from under the tarp, having to find good tie offs at all the perfect angles, and the lack of bug-proofing. Mosquitos can be really annoying and I have an irrational fear of spiders. But when I saw the Scout which is much like a tarp but self contained and bug proof, I thought I'd give it a try.
I have used the Scout for an overnight in Yellowstone, an overnight in the Tetons, and a six day Wind River Range trip. It's now been in the wind, multiple rain storms, and two hail storms. And I like the tent a lot.

I have only had a few nights out with this tent, but so far the hype is real! I am 6'3 and tend to move around a bit during the night. I got tired of waking up with my down bag wet around my feet and or my head wet. I don't think that will ever be an issue with this tent. It's plenty large enough for me and my gear by my feet.
Additionally, I really wanted to have a solo tent that could double up if the wife wants to join me. There is more than enough room for her and most of our gear.
I don't find the pole inside worth it so i always pitch both outside.
Not having a vestibule is a bummer, also wish it had a bug screen on the entry..
But all together I still give it a 5/5 for size/weight alone.
