The Deschutes and Deschutes Plus are lean, mean, no frills, down and dirty shelters for ultralight hikers on the move. They pack so small and light they might literally get lost in your pack, yet they are large enough for a comfortable night’s rest without the claustrophobia of a small tarp. With a full 360 degrees of protection, there’s no need to carry an additional bivy.

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. The single pole pyramid structure is easy to set up and sheds winds under the harshest storms.

The Deschutes Plus has the benefit of an added No-See-Um skirt perimeter, that eliminates the need to carry a bug net to keep away those pesky mosquitoes. The skirt’s generous 18-inch width allows you flexibility in setting up the shelter at different heights.

  • Zippered Entry
  • Easy Tension Adjustment
  • Full 18" No-See-Um Skirt allows you to set up the shelter at different heights and still have excellent bug protection.
  • High Vent Allows moisture to escape, helping to minimize condensation.
  • 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

FAQ

I'm over 6', will I fit? There are many factors that determine if you'll be comfortable using the Deschutes. It depends upon the height of the setup, the depth of your sleeping pad and your sleeping style. Take a look at the picture of the Deschutes Tarp with the Serenity NetTent, the Serenity is 84" or 7' long and has vertical end walls of 9". Without the Serenity, the height is 13" at the point where the Serenity would end. Using a thick sleeping mat will compromise internal space and minimize headroom. Also setting up the Deschutes low to the ground will do the same. However, when properly setup, most people will find the Deschutes roomy enough for a good nights sleep.

What is the recommended Pole Height? The Deschutes Plus Tarp can be set up at different heights. At 40" the Deschutes hugs the ground providing maximum protection. The Deschutes can accommodate a variable height of between 45" to 49" depending upon conditions and your personal preferences. For maximum interior space or when using the Serenity NetTent, set your pole to 49". In most cases, you'll want to angle your pole so the bottom of it is inside the vestibule area. This helps to maximize the sleeping area.
