Description

Show Description

The Scout is a favourite option for ultra-light hikers. It also makes a fine small shelter for two people on a ski trip or a day trip that leads to a windy summit or lakeshore. The tough coated polyester is rugged and affordable, but not as crazy-light and silicone-treated fabrics. It is a versatile design that you can rig as a roof, or pitch at an angle to create a comfortable shelter from the wind.

  • Multiple attachment points provide lots of rigging options.
  • Nickle-plated solid brass grommets are rugged and corrosion-resistant.
  • The stuff sack snaps onto an attachment near the middle of the centre seam, so you can use a trekking pole, paddle, or length of wood as a centre pole.
  • Centre loop lets you suspend it pyramid-style.
