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.

Constructed from tough but light Silicone Nylon, the Deschutes shelter weighs just 13 ounces  

The Deschutes shelter can pair with the Serenity NetTent 

The Deschutes shelters have 44 ft 2 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.

Most tarps have one or more gaps that you need to address in order to stay dry. The Deschutes has 360 o 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
  • Top Vent
  • Single Pole Setup with hexagonal shape provides maximum protection at minimum weight
  • Easy Setup

Add-ons:

The stake single set matches the number of entrances on the Deschutes. We recommend using a larger 8" Easton stake at each vestibule. The larger stakes provide more purchase power in a wide variety of soils.

If you're a cyclist, paddler or don't carry trekking poles, you may wish to consider using aluminum/carbon fiber poles to support your shelter. This lightweight aluminum pole is custom made and designed to be used as your primary tent pole
