As trail-going campers become enlightened to the wonders of lightweight peripherals, so too do the manufacturers of the industry’s most utilized essentials. Big Agnes’ newest offering, the Scout 1 Platinum Tent, adheres to the company’s innovative principles by offering one of the lightest single-wall shelters around.

The Big Agnes Scout 1 Platinum Tent was built to be the perfect backpacking shelter, thanks to its ultralight 13-ounce design. At just over a pound, this 16ft² enclosure features an exterior trekking-pole design with vertical end walls and over-vertical sidewalls to create an elaborate living area, without the introduction of additional materials. Each variant is constructed with hard-wearing silicone-treated nylon ripstop and boasts a weatherized silhouette, thanks to the inclusion of waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape. Inside, you’ll be privy to dual 3-D vent pockets for enhanced, out-of-the-way storage, a handfull of interior loops for attaching gear and accessories, and a series of slider zippers to promote adequate ventilation. If you’re heading out on an adventure where weight and space are prominent concerns, make sure you head over to Big Agnes’ website to grab the Scout 1 Platinum Tent for $350.
