Ultralight. Ultra-versatile. Ultra-affordable. Get the most bang for your buck with the Deschutes Bundle.
The Deschutes Bundle is an ultralight, ultra-versatile shelter system that can be set up as a tent, a tarp, or a net tent. The bundle includes both the Deschutes Tarp and the Serenity NetTent. The pyramid-style design is incredibly stable providing 360° protection in some of the most extreme conditions. The Deschutes Bundle will have you prepared for whatever the trail brings.
*To completely repel water, shelters need to have sealer applied to the seams before use.
*Shelters including a seam sealing service may not ship immediately. Check out our seam sealing queue here.
The Deschutes Tarp provides 44 sq. ft. of protection and is easily set up with one trekking pole to a maximum height of 49 inches. This allows plenty of room to sit up without feeling tight.**
The inner net is cut trim to save weight. It provides able sleeping space for one camper and their sleeping gear. The remainder of the canopy coverage can be utilized for gear storage.
The removable NetTent hangs from the underside of the canopy. Because the tarp can be set up first and taken down last, the Serenity NetTent remains dry in rainy conditions. The integrated bathtub floor adds further security.

I have been using the Deschutes Plus for 5 years now, in some extremely buggy country mainly (wind river range).
Needless to say, its almost the perfect shelter. Perfect blend of light, small, bug and weather proof, while still being one of the cheaper shelters I own. Its small packed size (between a softball and a volleyball) means it can fit in any pocket of a backpack.
Replaces a tarp for the same weight while being easier to set up, and more bug and weather proof!
After some time backpacking with this shelter in a myriad of conditions I have came to the conclusion that I very much enjoy the Deschutes Plus. The shelter provided more than adequate rain protection in heavy storms and excellent bug protection. Ventilation isn't amazing, probably because of the netting but I generally have at least one of the doors wide open unless I am in a buggy, dewy, or rainy area. I have found that using the guyline attachments provide much more headroom and I prefer to always use them. Also when it is buggy, I generally set items on top of the netting as the a breeze can blow the netting up and allow a swath of mosquitos in. Overall I am happy with my purchase and it is my go-to shelter for going solo.
After setting this up once in the park (city living;-), I took it on an overnight bike trip, along with the serenity tent and a pole. The setup went great and the net inside was surprisingly roomy, with more floor space than my Big Agnes Tiger Wall 1P. I haven't sealed it yet but I knew it would be dry and there was no problem with any condensation. I was warm and comfortable all night and was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to enter and exit.
I like this tarp, it was my first time camp with this tarp. There is a big space for cooking, rest. When you use the tracking pole around 125cm, the ventilation is awesome.
Thanks for this tarp and arrival in time.
I’ve had this tarp for 4 years. I’ve used it in every kind of weather you can think of from heavy rain and snow to summer mountain backpacking. Once you accept that this is to keep weather off and not bugs out, you quickly realize how awesome it is. Ultralight, easy to set up and keeps you dry. Set the low side to the wind and your Good to go. It has room enough to put all your gear inside and keep it dry as well. I’m getting older (62) and this helps me keep up with the younger punks on the trail. I also love how little real estate it takes up in my pack.
