New for 2014! The lightweight and versatile Big Agnes Super Scout UL 2 is a trekking pole (NOTE: poles not included) pitched tent built especially for backpackers. A massive front vestibule provides a wealth of external storage space.
Stretching a full 86" in length, the interior of the Super Scout UL 2 is 54" wide at the head and tapers to a width of 42" at the feet. Providing 29 square feet of interior space, the Super Scout UL 2 offers ample room for two backpackers and is lightweight enough to serve as an exceptionally roomy solo tent. An awning-style extension on the tent body provides weather protection and includes "eve" and rear vents featuring polyester mesh that maximize airflow to combat condensation build-up. Two integrated storage bins at the head of the tent provide places to stash gear and clothes while integrated gear loft loops offer a connection point for the Big Agnes Triangle Gear Loft (sold separately).
NOTE: The Super Scout UL 2 is not freestanding and does require trekking poles with a minimum height of 45" for setup. Integrated guyout points, obvious anchor points and included reflective guylines and webbing do, however, make the Super Scout UL 2 easier to erect than it may seem at first. Fifteen super-light aluminum J stakes are included to secure the pitch. One pole is also included with the Super Scout UL 2 for foot area set-up.
A large door provides convenient entry. The silicone-treated nylon rip-stop roof and floor deliver lightweight, durable, waterproof protection. All of the Super Scout UL 2's seams are seal-taped with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape (no PVC or VOCs) to further protect the tent from the elements. The Big Agnes Scout Plus UL 2/Super Scout UL 2 Footprint (sold separately) can be used to further protect the tent floor from mud, ground water and sharp objects like rocks, exposed roots and pine needles.
