The Deschutes is a lean, mean, no frills, down and dirty shelter for ultralight hikers on the move. It packs so small and light it might literally get lost in your pack, yet it is large enough for a comfortable night’s rest without the claustrophobia of a small tarp.
The Deschutes shelters have 4 m2 of coverage and a setup height of 49”. Inside you have plenty of room to sit up and the extra room lets you spread out your gear. The full-length vestibule zipper makes for easy entry. Constructed from tough but light Silicone Nylon, the Deschutes Tarp weighs 368 gram and is quite affordable. When mated with the Serenity NetTent you have a double wall solo tent, that weighs a mere 680 g.
Most tarps have one or more gaps that you need to address in order to stay dry. The Deschutes has 360o weather protection. This tarp helps shelter you from the worst storms while staying nice and dry. Its single pole pyramid structure makes it easy to set up and very stable. It easily handles both wind and light snow loads. When using a trekking pole for setup, you can vary the height of the tent to optimize for prevailing conditions. Setup higher for maximum ventilation and low for stormy conditions.
Long Zippered Entry for easier entry.
Single Pole Setup with hexagonal shape provides maximum protection at minimum weight.
