8.1 OZ – 230 G SOLO TARP – USES ONE 49” POLE

The Deschutes Zero-G is a no-frills tarp shelter that is so light you might forget you brought it.

The Deschutes Zero-G is part of the Zero-Gravity Family – our premium line of ultralight products. You thought the Deschutes was light? The Deschutes Zero-G is 40% lighter. And at mere 8.1 ounces, this pyramid-style design is still incredibly stable and still provides 360° protection in some of the most extreme conditions. Pair it with the Serenity NetTent and enjoy a double-walled tent that only weighs an amazing 19 ounces. Go farther faster.

SHIPPING: The Deschutes Zero-G will require a signature for delivery.

NOTE: The second and third pictures are not the most up to date model; the actual product will be more like the first image. 


The Deschutes Zero-G shelter is perfect for those looking to enter the super ultralight realm of backpacking. This shelter provides 39 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 footprint is so tiny you can pitch it just about anywhere. Pair it with the Serenity NetTent to keep annoying insects at bay.

    Somewhere on the PCT
    Almost Perfect Shelter

    My wife and I replaced our overly complex tent with two of these DCF tarps for our current PCT thru hike. We thought we wouldn't use them much as we'd be cowboy camping most of the time. However, this year's wacky weather has meant we've used them a lot more than we would have liked! They've proved excellent, weatherproof shelters alongside our bug bivies and are incredibly lightweight. We attached a couple pieces of cord to the door hooks to make them far easier to attach to the guy line clip and added side guy lines for extra stability and a bit more interior room. We plan to attach a couple of interior loops so we can tie our bivy bag cords and some linelocs, as dealing with sliding knots on 2mm cord in the snow gets tedious real quick :-) The build quality is very good with the only issue we've encountered was a small leak where the door tie was attached in heavy rain. Here's a photo:

    I have been tarp camping for a few years with a net bivy but have avoided the tarp shelters because they block the view on rainy days. I did get a net tent with tub floor but it was heavy so I went to a floorless and doorless net which worked ok with my tarp and bivy sack but I was not satisfied. Then I saw the Serenity Net Tent at 11 ounces and ordered one immediately. While looking through Six Moon Designs offerings I spotted the new Deschutes Shelter. Now I get the view, a tub floor, net with door, and lose the weight of the silnylon tarp, poles, and bivy bag. The 45 inch height (48 inch shelter height) is perfect. It is easy to enter I had to back into my net bivy and could not turn around. The vestibule allows exit/entry without getting my bag wet. The negative is that it is not free standing but I have gotten used to spiking down my tarps and can relocate them relatively easy now. The trick is to eliminate knot tying.

    Love the design, it's perfect for my needs. Was going to wait for an inclement weather overnight; but on the third backyard practice setup, I found an area above the zipper where the fabric had torn on a stitch line. I own 2 different .5dcf tarps that have no issues after somebad winds.. I expected much more out of the .75 fabric. Lack of reinforcement in design vs. QC issue? Reported the problem and waiting for response, will update. Not a fan of actually made in China but coming across as a US cottage vendor, but that's my fault for not doing diligence.
