In 2015, Six Moon Designs updated their design of the very popular Wild Oasis by increasing it’s coverage by an additional 9 square feet. This huge increase in space came with a mere .7 oz weight increase and still has all the features of the Wild Oasis. Now, it is named, The 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.
TO SEAM SEAL WE RECOMMEND: SilNet specifically formulated for Silnylon.
In 2015 Six Moon Designs updated the Wild Oasis by increasing it’s coverage by an additional 9 square feet, and calling it the Deschutes Plus. This is a huge space improvement with only .7 oz. added weight and all the same features of the very popular Wild Oasis.
We recommend Seam Grip + Sil Seam Seal for siliconized products, and Seam Grip + FC for non-siliconized products. We do not offer seam sealing service at this time. It is important to note that seam sealed products are not eligible for return.
The Deschutes Plus Tarp can be setup at different heights. The Deschutes can accommodate a variable height of between 45″ to 49″ depending upon conditions and your personal preferences. At 40″ the Deschutes hugs the ground providing maximum protection. For maximum interior space, set your pole to 49″. In most cases you’ll want to angle your pole so the bottom is inside the vestibule area. This helps to maximize the sleeping area.
