Six Moon Designs Serenity Bug Shelter is an enclosed inner 'tent' with a deep bathtub groundsheet that uses a trekking pole as support. Use it on its own or with the Gatewood Cape.

Six Moon Designs says: The re-designed Serenity support an 8" deep bathtub floor. In addition it's been cantilevered for better headroom. Plus we've added additional re-enforcement on the guy-outs.

Sometimes the best solution is the simplest. The Serenity NetTent provides a simple solution to keeping those creepy crawlies and pesky mosquitoes at bay. Its small floor size lets it be setup in most any place. Unlike bivies with the mesh draped directly on your face, the Serenity's 45 inch height lets you sit up in comfort. You can sleep comfortably knowing that some mosquito won't be biting you through the mesh.

The Serenity has a large oversize door to make entry and exiting easy. No need to shimmy out of a long tube. Nor do you need to detach it from the cape when exiting. The ends of the Serenity are lifted several inches. This effectively lengthens the floor and raises the netting off your face.

For hikers on the Appalachian Trail who spend many nights in shelters. The Serenity is the perfect companion. Since it takes up no more space than a bivy you won't be crowding out your neighbors. Yet it's easy to hang from the roof and guaranteed to keep the mice at bay.

The Serenity is the perfect mate for the Gatewood Cape together the two make a great light weight double wall tent.On nice nights simply set it up by itself and you've got a great star gazing shelter.

Six Moon Designs' Serenity Bug Tent can be used on its own but most people will want to pair it with the Gatewood Cape and Tarp Shelter - or the Deschutes Tarp. You need a trekking pole or some sort of support for it at 114cm long or thereabouts. We like the corner supported bathtub groundsheet - and deep tub sides making this a really effective bit of kit.

Simple redesign needed

I was delighted with the simplicity and usability of the Gatewood Cape / Tarp having used it on a walking holiday in Wales in 2019. I had expected the same with the serenity net, however there are three negative issues I have with it. First is the omission of a built in connection point to fix to the existing loop provided on the inside of the tent. This point is used optionally to guy out the side of the shelter to create more head space when laying down. Omitting this is an oversight and lack of attention to the design. Secondly, the shelter has a surprisingly useful amount of usable space, however this is severely limited when using the net as the centre back part of the shelter is inaccessible. And thirdly, the tape at the centre of the floor has an eyelet. I assume this is designed to go through the spine of a walking pole. However I don’t use them and bought the carbon pole designed for the shelter. It doesn’t fit through the loop and so some rigging is required with line to make it work. Come on Six Moons. If you’re going to design products that work together please look more carefully at the result. Otherwise you’d have 5 stars!

Nice in summer.

I like this bug net a lot. It is well made and fits the Deschutes Solo Tarp perfectly with the attachment points. There is enough space for 1 to sleep with a small amount of gear inside. I have found that when its windy it does blow through and when I camped on a beach I did wake up covered in sand. I have given it 5 stars because its great for what it is but beware it could be a bit chilly if you want to use it in the winter and you may be woken by the wind if you are not used to it. Brilliant for a hot summer night though.
