22 oz - 624 g Solo Shelter (Weight includes Gatewood Cape + Serenity NetTent)

Since its introduction in 2006, the Gatewood Cape has been carried over 100's of thousands of trail miles. It's been used to provide shelter from everything including high mountain snow-choked ridges to lush forest trails. It's the ONLY Tarp / Rain Gear that provides complete 360-degree protection. 

The Gatewood Cape Bundle is an ultralight, ultra-versatile shelter system that can be worn as a poncho while also capable of being set up as a tent, a tarp, or a net tent. Highly compressible when packed, the Gatewood Cape canopy expands to cover an area of 35 ft2. The Gatewood Cape Bundle includes both the Gatewood Cape and the Serenity NetTent.

 *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.


The Gatewood Cape Bundle is a modular shelter system that offers a variety of solutions for backcountry adventurers at only 22 ounces. The cape provides full coverage both when worn as a cape of used as a shelter. The Serenity NetTent can be used with the Gatewood Cape or as a standalone shelter from the bugs on clear, starry nights.

Unlike ponchos, capes don’t have slits along the sides. While a poncho may allow for more ventilation, it does little to keep out windblown rain. The Gatewood Cape has dual zipper pulls on the front, allowing you to regulate ventilation while still providing full protection.

The pyramid-style design provides sturdy, all-around protection that keeps you warm and dry even in extreme weather conditions. No more miserable nights in shifting winds.

  • Gatewood Cape is made with 15D Silicone-coated nylon, making it light but durable.
  • Serenity NetTent is made with a 40D Silicone-coated nylon floor and ultralight 20D No-See-Um netting upper.
  • 360° protection provides full coverage both when worn as a cape and when used as a shelter.
  • Sturdy pyramid design deflects wind and sheds snow and rain easily.
  • The Gatewood Cape is the perfect addition to the adventuresome day hiker’s 10 essentials survival kit.
  • 35 sq. ft. of coverage under the shelter’s canopy provides plenty of space for you and your gear.
  • Paired together, the Gatewood Cape and Serenity NetTent keep both the rain and bugs at bay.
  • Easy to pitch with just one adjustable trekking pole and six stakes*.

After spending several years coming up with the design. The Gatewood Cape became my primary shelter for years. My good friend Billy Goat has racked up over 10,000 miles with his Gatewood Cape and Serenity NetTent.

Absolutely love it

Absolutely love this tent, pitching takes a bit to get right bit many heights and variation are possible! Only complaint is hope the front door flap was an o-ring instead of hook since it falls off when not in tension, and a hook \ strap within the serenity tent for lights would be perfect
