That large, vertical wall would be a concern to me. If you guess wrong on what the wind will do or get swirling winds, I think it would be a less than joyful night.Aug 15, 2020 at 6:02 am #3670831matt BSpectator
Looks like the Tensor in Long-Wide won’t quite fit… breaking my heart.Aug 15, 2020 at 10:56 am #3670854Monte MastersonBPL Member

Thanks for the review. I’d like to see how waterproof the tent remains (long term) with sustained moderate to heavy rainfalls.
I called BA last year to find out if they were going to produce a Carbon DCF version of the Scout 1 like they did with the Scout 2. They said it wasn’t in the plans, at least for now. A 9 oz Carbon Scout 1 would truly be XUL and the ultimate FKT shelter. Probably a little more waterproof than the silnylon too.
