Six Moon Designs Deschutes Plus

For 2015 Six Moon Designs updated the Wild Oasis by increasing it’s coverage by an additional 9 square feet and creating the new Deschutes Plus.

The Deschutes Plus is a lean, mean, no frills, down and dirty shelter for ultralight hikers on the move. It packs so small and light it might literally get lost in your pack. Yet it is large enough for a comfortable night’s rest without the claustrophobia of a small tarp. With its full 360 degree protection there’s no need to carry an additional bivy.

The Deschutes Plus’ No-See-Um skirt perimeter eliminates the need to carry a bug net to keep away those pesky mosquitoes. The skirt’s generous 18 inch width allows you flexibility in setting up the shelter at different heights.

The Deschutes Plus' zippered entry makes getting in and out a breeze. It sets up using a single trekking pole or optional Carbon Fiber pole. This single pole pyramid design ensures that you’ll be safe and comfortable regardless of weather conditions.

Features

• Zippered Entry
• Easy Tension Adjustment
• Full 18" No-See-Um Skirt allows you to setup the shelter at different height and still have excellent bug protection.
• High Vent provides for moisture to escape to minimize condensation.
• Single Pole Setup with hexagonal shape provides maximum protection at minimum weight
• Easy Setup

Optional Small UL Polycro Footprint (adds 1.2 oz., 34 grams) 96” x 40”, 244 cm x 102 cm Color: Clear

This footprint is made from ultra strong and ultra light Polycro membrane. Designed for shrink wrap and frequently used as a second thermal layer for windows, this material is exceedingly rugged. While not as durable as Tyvek, it will provide significant protection and weighs almost nothing. Be careful though, this material is so light, it'll blow away in a light breeze. So be sure to weight it down after you spread it out. This Footprint comes two per pack, so you've got twice the protection. Easy to trim.
