Deschutes Zero-G (Fall 2022)
Ultralight, durable Dyneema® tarp with easy setup and lots of room
The Deschutes Zero-G (ZG) is a high-tech, ultralight shelter. At almost half the weight of the Siliconized Nylon version, it weighs in at an incredible 8 ounces! When mated with the Serenity NetTent (sold separately) you have a double wall solo tent that weighs an amazing 19 ounces.
The Deschutes ZG is designed to give you the most interior space while maximizing protection from the elements and minimizing weight. For people looking for a light shelter option, with plenty of space and minimal weight, the Deschutes ZG is the perfect fit. The Deschutes ZG has 39 sq ft of coverage and a setup height of 49”. You have plenty of room to sit up and extra room to spread out your gear. The full-length vestibule zipper makes for easy entry. The simple pyramid structure is easy to set up and sheds winds under the harshest storms.

I'm over 6', will I fit? The answer is it depends; there are many factors that determine if you'll be comfortable using the Deschutes ZG. It depends upon the height of the setup, the depth of your sleeping pad and your sleeping style. Take a look at the picture of the Deschutes Tarp with the Serenity NetTent, the Serenity is 84" or 7' long and has vertical end walls of 9". Without the Serenity the height is 13" at the point where the Serenity would end. Using a thick sleeping mat will compromise internal space and minimize headroom. Also setting up the Deschutes ZG low to the ground will do the same. However, properly set up, most people will find the Deschutes ZG more than roomy enough for a good night's sleep.
What is the recommended pole height? The Deschutes ZG can be set up at different heights. At 40" the Deschutes hugs the ground providing maximum protection. The Deschutes can accommodate a variable height of between 45" to 49" depending upon conditions and your personal preferences. For maximum interior space or when using the Serenity NetTent, set your pole to 49". In most cases you'll want to angle your pole so the bottom of it is inside the vestibule area. This helps to maximize the sleeping area.
