Sometimes the best solution is the simplest. The Serenity NetTent provides a simple solution to keeping those creepy crawlies and pesky mosquitoes at bay. Its small 84″ inch x 26″ floor size lets it be setup in most any place. Unlike bivies with the mesh draped directly on your face, the Serenity’s 45 inch height lets you sit up in comfort. You can sleep comfortably knowing that some mosquito won’t be biting you through the mesh.
The Serenity has a large oversize door to make entry and exiting easy. No need to shimmy out of a long tube. 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 the Deschutes Cuben Fiber Tarp together the two make a great light weight double wall shelter.
On nice nights simply set it up by itself and you’ve got a great star gazing shelter.

The Quicksilver Ultralight Hammock itself is made of 30D Breathable 1.1 oz. Ripstop Nylon. It’s a roomy 11’ long and 5’ wide with a weight capacity of 250 lbs. It’s stored in convenient bishop bag which makes setting up and striking camp a breeze. The suspension loops are 7/64″ AmSteel® Blue with a 1600 lb. breaking strength.
The Hammock’s Suspension consists two 10 straps of 1/2″ MULETAPE®. Oh, how we love MULETAPE®. So, much so that we don’t even mind that you can’t get it in any color but white. We knew it had to be a part of this system no matter what. This 1250 lb. test material is made of lubricated low stretch polyester which glides softly around trees. Plus we’ve made them extra long to allow you to wrap a couple of times to distribute the weight. The MULETAPE® joins to the QuickSilver Hammock loops with a quick, simple and secure Becket Hitch knot. This knot is a cinch to tie, allows fine adjustments to be made with ease and tears down with just a tug. We’ve tested this knot in wet, cold and hot conditions. It holds strong and does not slip. And no hardware means zero weight added and fewer opportunities for hardware failure leaving you on the ground in the middle of the night. One set of MULETAPE straps included with hammock.
Simple Polyester Tree Straps for tree protection. Available in either 4′, 6′ or 8′ lengths. Low-stretch, Flat Weave 1″ black Polyester webbing exceeds 1200# breaking strength per manufacturer. Use together with our MULETAPE® suspension straps for a ultralight, hardware free suspension solution for your hammock system. One set of 4′ Tree Straps are included with the hammock. Choose to upgrade length in the options area to the right.
