I see. It was not obvious. Strange design. Couldn't you cut the poles short and socket them at the top of the CF poles? But then, that's what putting them inside involves anyhow.

As soon as Henry does that (external additional poles, but terminating at the top of the struts), and specs a PU groundsheet I'll buy one).

(There are some other niggles I have but that would tip the balance enough)

Franco - do you know if there are any plans to implement some of the mods that have become popular eg. threshold cords?

Right now the most useless present for Henry would be a back scratcher but in a few months he will have some time to think about things.

The Scarp was designed to be a convertible 3 to 4 season shelter.
In other words a 3 season shelter that can be used in winter but not particularly focused just on that.
However the design does lend itself to some interesting mods so you never know...
