Ultralight Poncho Tarp Tent

The Gatewood Cape ultralight poncho tarp tent from the American company Six Moon Designs is a unique combination of a shelter and a rain poncho. With its ultralight weight and minimal volume, it takes up very little space in your backpack.

Use as a Poncho

When used as a poncho, it is large enough to completely protect you from the rain, including your backpack. The front zipper acts as an opening for ventilation, and the open skirt design allows fresh air to enter from the bottom.

Use as a Shelter

When used as a shelter, it provides complete 360º weather protection. Its robust pyramid design allows rain or snow to slide down easily, and the wind simply flows around it.

If you add the Serenity Net Tent (sold separately), you can convert the Gatewood Cape ultralight poncho tarp tent into a true double-wall tent with total protection against insects.

Made of Silicone-Treated Nylon

The Gatewood Cape ultralight poncho tarp tent uses a 30D Ripstop nylon impregnated with silicone (Silnylon). Silicone is a hydrophobic material (repels water), making the fabric highly waterproof. It also adds some elasticity, similar to nylon itself, making it more resistant to pulls and tears.

    La compre para hacer el Camino de Santiago y aunque pueda parecer caro el precio he decir que vale cada céntimo. La calidad del material con el que está fabricado es muy bueno y REALMENTE impermeable ya que repele el agua super bien y seca en pocos minutos una vez termina la lluvia.
