Six Moon Designs' Deschutes Tarp bridges the gap between rectangular tarps and a tent giving great protection at a very low weight.

Six Moon Designs says:

We've updated the Deschutes Tarp model for 2015. On the new model we've extended the zipper make it easier to get in and out. Plus we've added a vent at the top of the tent. Together these changes added less than an ounce to the Deschutes and contribute significantly to it's livability.

The Deschutes Tarp is an Ultralight shelter designed to give you the most interior while maximizing protection from the elements and minimizing weight. For people looking for a light shelter option with plenty of space and minimal weight, the Deschutes is a perfect fit!

The Deschutes Tarp is 14” deeper, 5" longer and 3" taller than the Wild Oasis. The result is 44 ft2 of coverage and height of 49”. That’s an addition 9 ft2 of living space. With the added height you've got plenty of room to sit up and the extra room lets you spread out your gear.

The front vestibule is partially closed with a minimal zipper to allow for easy entry while still saving weight. The simple pyramid structure is easy to setup and spills the wind and harshest storms.

The Deschutes Tarp, is designed to mate perfectly with the newly redesigned Serenity NetTent. Together they make an excellent double wall solo tent with plenty of space and protection for a mere 24 ounces.

Six Moon Designs' Deschutes Solo Tarp is their key tarp shelter, pitched using a single trekking pole it provides a huge amount of space for one person and can be paired with the Six Moons Designs Serenity Bug Shelter for when you need more protection.

It has a differential cut such that you can pitch it close to the ground at the rear & sides and the front will be comparatively open, set quite high off the ground - while still providing the necessary protection. A zipper allows easy access.

If the openness of Tarps has you a bit worried about the UK conditions the Deschutes Tarp bridges the gap between a rectangular tarp and a tent - whilst still remaining very light indeed.

Tarp and Tent.

I like this tarp a lot. It's easy and quick to put up after reading the instructions. It's possible to pitch it high with gap under the sides or really low if it's windy or cold but there will always be a gap at the front however you pitch it. There is plenty of room to sit up and cook inside. I also purchased the serenity bug tent which fits the tarp perfectly with already fitted attachment points but I did find this breezy in the night even with the tarp low to the ground as it's all mesh. I had sand blowing in to the inner when camped on a beach but it was pretty windy. I love the weight, space and quick pitching of these 2 but I will be using my Terra Nova Competition 1 for winter and suffer the extra weight for the extra warmth of a more wind proof inner.

Great kit at a great price

I have just got back from doing the Cleveland way (109 miles) in 4 days, I had to travel fast and light and this seemed the perfect choice, I was not disappointed has it held up great once pitched, you do however have to seam seal it but that's not a problem. Great product, design and price and can be pitched in minutes!
