The Big Agnes Scout 2 Carbon with Dyneem Tent takes lightweight to a whole new level for a 2 person shelter. Easy to pitch with trekking poles (not provided) and plenty of room for 2 people but light enough for 1 person to carry.

Big Agnes says:

Three season, crazylight single wall, trekking pole tent featuring Dyneema® Composite Fabrics.

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.

Big Agnes Scout 2 Carbon with Dyneema Tent is an insanely lightweight 2 person shelter. The living space is more than ample for 2 people. This Dyneema version weighs in at under 350g which is unreal for a two person tent. Using the best and lightest materials available Big Agnes has done a great job of pushing what is possible. 

The tent was quick and simple to set up but is worth noting you need an adjustable walking or tarp pole for the rear support as a fully extended pole is too tall. There are plenty of guy lines to ensure a stable pitch. Single skin tents save weight over 2 layer but there is always the concern over condensation. The impressive array of vents will reduce this risk.

Obviously for a tent this light it won't be as durable as heavier options. We would recommend using a footprint if you think you will be pitching on rough ground. There are also drawbacks to using Dyneema as the main fabric but in this case the weight saving certainly seem to justify any drawback.
