SIX MOON DESIGNS Gatewood Cape - is an excellent piece of gear. Perfect for an ultralighter looking for an affordable multi-use piece of quality gear that serves multiple functions so saves a lot of weight and packing volume. It performs 3 essential uses very well: shelter, raingear or packcover. You will get all in one piece and the weight can't be beat.

New Gatewood Cape is now 15% lighter. Manufacturer with a new lighter canopy material have cut the weight by 2 ounces. The pack volume has also been reduced by 40%.

Six Moon designs says:
Since its introduction in 2006, the Gatewood Cape has been carried over 100's of thousands of trail miles. It's been used to provide shelter from everything including high mountain snow-choked ridges to lush forest trails. It's the ONLY Tarp / Rain Gear that provides complete 360-degree protection.
The Gatewood Cape's unique 360-Degree Protection provides full coverage either when worn as a cape or used as a shelter. Unlike ponchos, capes don't have long slits along the sides. While the poncho may allow for more ventilation, it does little to keep out windblown rain. Dual zipper pulls on the front of the Gatewood Cape allow you to regulate ventilation while still providing full protection. Plus, the open skirted design allows fresh air to enter the bottom.

As a shelter, the Gatewood Cape provides significantly enhanced protection when compared to your typical poncho/tarp. Its sturdy pyramid design easily sheds rain or snow and wind simply flows around it. Any sudden change in wind direction in the middle of the night won't leave you scrambling to re-orient your shelter or force you deeper into your bivy. Unlike a traditional tarp, the Gatewood Cape is shaped to eliminate all exposed sides -- leaving you safe and secure.

With 35 square feet of coverage under the shelter's canopy, you've got plenty of room for one plus room for gear in the entry area. Depending upon conditions, you can even adjust the vestibule to different heights to increase ventilation. A long zipper on the vestibule makes opening and closing the shelter a snap. Ventilation is provided also by leaving the hood as open as the weather allows.

For the adventuresome day hiker, the Gatewood Cape makes the perfect addition to your 10 essentials survival kit. It packs down incredibly small and provides peace of mind knowing you've got excellent protection close at hand. 

With a practice, it can be set up in less than 1 minute, but on the other hand to get the pitch right, would takes some practice. We recommend to watch videos before.

It is an excellent choice for ultralight backpackers for multi-use gear on longer trips where every gram counts.

For added bug protection, the Gatewood Cape mates with the Serenity NetTent. Together they keep both the rain and bugs at bay. Providing you with secure and comfortable space.

Seams aren't sealed. We recommend Gear Aid / McNett seam sealer for Silnylon products to achieve complete waterproofness. We do not offer seam sealing service at this time. It is important to note that seam sealed products can no longer be returned within 30 days. However, the product is still under warranty.
