The Serenity has a large over-sized door to make entering and exiting easy. No need to shimmy out of a long tube. Nor do you need to detach it from a cape or tarp when exiting. The ends of the Serenity are 8" tall. 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 either the Gatewood Cape or Deschutes Tarp. Used together, the two make a great lightweight double-wall shelter. And on nice nights, simply set the Serenity up by itself and you've got a great star gazing shelter.

Probably my favorite piece of gear now! Use it on a beautiful night or pitch the Gatewood Cape over it for wind/rain/snow protection. My suggestion.. Find a surreal setting and enjoy the views!!
Coupled it with SMD's Gatewood Cape on my recent bike camping trip. The weather was quite unfriendly but both the Cape and Net works wonder.
I'll use inside my Hyperlite Ultamid 2 on solo trips that will be buggy. I tested it and it easily clipped inside and is a fraction of the cost of Hyperlite's 1p inner. I has plenty of sleeping space for all 6'3" of me. I now have a 1p. bug safe palace that's under 2 pounds. Plus, if there's no threat of rain. I can set it up alone.
Pitched it inside my gate wood cape in the side yard slept out two nights at 25*F & 18*F. Works great. It’s small, really small, but all the real estate is in exactly the right place my head doesn’t touch, my feet don’t touch and I can sit up directly from sleeping without having to scoot forwards backwards, or sideways. Super easy to figure out- I pitched it in the dark, without reading the instructions and got it nice and tight in about 7 minutes. Nothing short of brilliant. GroundHog
looks good, will work well
