Scout Tarp Extreme - travel light; fast; comfortably! A contradiction of terms: compact and lightweight makes Scout a huge shelter; a simple design but long on versatility. A clever tensioning cord in a perimeter channel allows easy setups. An integrated stuff sack and guyline pocket make packing up a breeze!

The tent alternative for minimalists! Versatile setup and endless applications. It can be set up tent style with trekking poles or suspended as a tarp between branches or trees. Numerous guylines and pegs ensure a tight pitch and a shock cord in the perimeter seam tension of all tarp sides.

Exped Fast + Lite Tent Category explained at Ultralight Outdoor Gear|This tent is one of Exped's FAST + LITE tents - When minimal weight and small packed size are necessities, these shelter solutions deliver both without sacrificing Exped quality or fine detail. Tents, Tarps and mosquito nets work alone or in concert to achieve protection from the elements for the most gram conscious adventurers.

Huge tarp with a very low weight for its size and as with all Exped gear very well made. The best feature is that it can be setup as a tarp with one end closed to the elements. This is useful for use in the UK.
