TRAVEL GADGET: Scout Single Pole Tent

I’ve never slept in a tent until 2-and-a-half years ago. My first ever experience pitching one was in the grounds of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, and boy, it was heavy and bulky.

A year later, I found myself with the same tent type atop Bale Mountain covered with frost undoing the clips precariously with a butter knife simply to avoid the possibility of breaking my frozen fingers off in the process! It sure was a good, robust tent that worked well in the extreme weathers I had been in … but since then, I’ve not been able to personally settle for one having researched many outdoor websites…

… until I saw the Scout Single Pole Tent 

{warning!!! can’t tell if it’s the awesome black-and-white photos thats clouding my judgment, but this sure looks like a winner}

Here’s what the reviews have to say so far:

“With all-canvas construction, it’s the perfect blend of breathability for warm weather camping, and resistance to the elements when things get cold, windy, and wet. The tent is a breeze to pitch, using either the single collapsible hickory pole, or the included mounting rig and paracord to hoist it up a tree. Made to sleep two comfortably, the tent measures eight by eight feet and seven feet tall at the peak, while an included carrying bag takes the trouble out of transporting it.”

The pricing is not all that appealing at a whopping USD982.00 –  as it ships only in May 2014, I look forward to reading reviews of actual users before taking the plunge.

Sure looks cool!
