Scout 2 Carbon Tent

Out of the massive collection of backpacking tents, Scout tents, and carbon-poled shelters from Big Agnes, the Scout 2 Carbon Tent is by far the lightest single-wall, non-freestanding shelter available. It only weighs eleven ounces and packs down to the size of a water bottle. Despite its lightness, Dyneema fabric keeps the Scout surprisingly durable for how little the tent weighs, although a footprint (sold separately) is highly recommended. Dyneema is also ruggedly rainproof for three-season weather protection.

The Scout 2 incorporates trekking poles as the main frame for backpacking minimalists. That, coupled with the pre-cut guylines, makes set-up quick and seamless so you can spend less time organizing camp and more time watching the sunset over that alpine lake or sandstone tower. The single-wall design also incorporates 3-D bin pockets to help organize climbing or backpacking gear before and after heading out for your next project or trek.

Carbon Tent Repair Tips

How to repair a Big Agnes Carbon Series tent with the included repair kit.


Scout 2 Carbon Tent

You’ll want to see and feel this tent in action to believe the technical and ultralight performance of the crazylight, carbon version of our classic Scout tent. This is a single-wall, trekking-pole supported structure with a trail weight of 11oz(!), a roomy floor plan, and features that gives two people plenty of space both in length and width. Designed not only with the lightest-weight materials available, but this tent is built with Dyneema® Composite Fabrics - an extremely strong and dynamic fiber that is both highly tear resistant as well as fully waterproof. The Scout 2 Carbon with Dyneema® is an ultralight-weight adventurer’s dream. These products are intended for only the most advanced user. Although extremely strong for their weight, these tents are not indestructible and require careful use to decrease the possibility of damage. Special care during setup and extended trips is important as rough handling, long-term abrasion, exposure to sharp objects or rocky campsite selection may result in fabric punctures and tears. We highly recommend using tent footprints with these tents to improve durability. Self-adhesive repair patches are included in the event that repairs must be made on the trail.
