Big Agnes's Super Scout UL2 is a single skin tent that ticks all the ultralight boxes, it uses your trekking poles to give it support, has a generous amount of internal mesh and a high cut flysheet to allow plenty of ventilation.
It has very generous proportions for one, and good enough for two, with a large extended vestibule for storing gear or mans best friend, all at a miniscule weight.
Big Agnes says:
The Scout is a new-school version of your old-school A-frame wall tent or tarp. This single-wall tent uses your trekking poles for support and sets up in no time. With ample floor space and minimal weight, this is an ultralight shelter you will love. We've designed the Scout with enough vents along the base of the tent for ventilation and eves that pull away for more protection from the elements.
Big Agnes's Super Scout UL2 is a big tent for its weight and it achieves that by being only single skin and by using your trekking poles as its supports. Its completely bug proof and there's a generous front porch for storing gear.
Some will worry about condensation in a single skin tent and the Scout Plus offers more ventilation than most, the high cut flysheet allows the wind to breeze through, and the internal mesh panels will help reduce condensation - as will tying the door back when the weather allows.
Some of us don't mind a bit of condensation that can be easily mopped up with a rag - the important thing is that you are protected from the elements - the Scout Plus does this offering good protection from the main enemy - rain, but also don't be put off by the cut out on the flysheet - modern tent materials are very strong and the Scout will resist surprisingly strong gusts of wind.
