  • The Deschutes DCF is an ultralight shelter designed to give you the most interior space 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 DCF is the perfect fit! The Deschutes DCF has 39 ft 2 of coverage and a setup height of 49”. You have plenty of room to sit up and extra room to spread out your gear. The full length vestibule zipper makes for easy entry. The simple pyramid structure is easy to setup and sheds winds under the harshest storms.


    1. I'm over 6', will I fit? The answer is depends? There are many factors that determine if you'll be comfortable using the Deschutes DCF. 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 it 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 DCF low to the ground will do the same. However, properly setup, most people will find the Deschutes DCF more than roomy enough for a good nights sleep.
    2. What is the recommended Pole Height? The Deschutes DCF can be setup 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.
