- Plenty of space
- Easy set up
- Very small packed size
- Minimal weight
- No vestibule
- Very see through
- Potentially fragile
*I must point out that none of the Cons above were an issue for me. If it had rained and my shoes and pack were soaked, the no vestibule would have been an issue. I always bring all my gear inside my tent or place it in the vestibule if its wet. With the Scout 2 Carbon my only option would have been to bring my wet shoes and pack in the tent with me.
As far as durability goes, the tent is durable but one must understand that the fabric lacks the durability of thicker stronger fabrics, and one must treat it accordingly. If this is done, it’s no longer an issue.
What I do differently next time:
I don’t think I’d change a thing. The timing of my thru-hike meant less potential afternoon rain storms, meaning that not having a vestibule wasn’t much of an issue. Basically I lucked out. On a longer thru-hike the chances are it would become a problem at some point during the hike.
