The Scout Tarp Extreme from Exped is contradiction in terms: compact and lightweight yet still a huge shelter; a simple design but long on versatility. A clever tensioning cord in a perimeter channel allows easy tensioning for multiple setups, and an integrated stuff sack and guyline pocket make packing up a breeze!
Quick setup thanks to the unique channel along the outer seam where an adjustable shock cord is hidden. Once set, the tension remains constant keeping the tarp taught
Numerous guylines and loops for versatile setup or suspension
Can be pitched as a simple A-frame shelter over a stetched cord
Almost anything can be used for support (paddles, trekking poles, skis, branches, snowshoes or even a pack)
Compact, integrated packsack doubles as anchorsack for supports
Central attachment loop allows the tarp to be suspended from a branch or other overhang
Lap-felled seams sew cotton-wrapped polyester thread through 4 layers of interleaved fabric where it expands to keep water out and increase strength and durability
