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.

There are times when a simple bug head net won’t do. Once camped by a beautiful mountain lake, I was driven into my tarp when the mosquitoes came out to play. The tarp’s netting skirt kept out the pesky bugs but the evening sun turned my sanctuary into a sweat lodge. It wasn’t long before I packed up and headed for high ground where a breeze and trees would keep the bugs and sun at bay. At the time, I would have killed for a net tent. Something with a large enough space to sit up and enjoy the beautiful surroundings pest free.

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.

Since the bishop bag stays attached to the hammock while in use, it is a great place to stow your Vista Bug Net which slides out of the way while not in use and makes the stow away process quick, clean and easy.
The deluxe version has enough room to hold a hammock, bug net AND a 20º down underquilt, dramatically cutting set-up and strike time by not having to add or remove your underquilt from your hammock each time.

A generous canopy covers a 26 sq. ft. sleeping area plus 8.5 sq. ft. of vestibule storage. The 48″ peak height, set in the middle of the tent maximizes room for sitting and taking care of chores.
A 2012 redesign raised the canopy 3″ to 48″ and offset the pole, the result was considerably more headroom. Extending the floor to 90″ and making end walls vertical enhances sleeping for taller individuals. The slight reduction in floor space is more than compensated for by better weather handling. With more vertical walls, the Lunar Solo easily sheds wind and snow.

By popular demand the Skyscape Trekker is now available with a higher bathtub floor along the sides and now the crossbar is incorporated into the shelter so it will no longer get lost.
All Skyscape models utilize a dual fixed length 45″ or 115 cm pole support structure. We offer two optional pole types, Aluminum or Carbon Fiber. While both poles work well with the Trekker, the Aluminum poles are more affordable in price. While our Carbon Fiber poles are half the weight of the Aluminum poles.
The dual pole structure is slightly offset from the center of the tent. The offset yields extra head room when lying down, reducing that claustrophobic feeling. Further, it allows the Skyscape o be extremely rigid when guyed out, creating a structure capable of riding out the worst storms.
The Skyscape employs Hybrid Double Wall construction. Over 80% of the canopy is separated from you by a mesh wall, keeping that wet canopy at bay. The Hybrid Double Wall construction allows the vestibules roll back. On warm summer nights, convert the Skyscape into a net tent, pesky bugs stay outside while you enjoy the views and breezes.
The Skyscape’s large side entry door lets you easily enter the tent or retrieve gear . With floor length over 100 inches, the Skyscape accommodates the tallest hikers. You can carry a light tent and still sleep well.
The canopy and floor of the Trekker are constructed with silicone nylon. This fabric has been the work horse of fabrics used to build ultralight tents for the last decade. It’s main properties are its strength, light weight and that it’s impervious to mold or mildew.

A word about proper usage: We recommend using tree straps (or, tree huggers) that are, at minimum, 1 inch wide. This is good practice for protecting the trees we hang from. Furthermore, it should be noted that MuleTape has a loose weave and it will snag on tree bark. For these reasons, we do not recommend it for use without tree straps.
Use with our Polyester Tree Straps.
