[Pictures] 2018 SMD Gatewood Cape

Hey all,

I was recently at the Six Moon Designs office hanging out with them for a couple of days when their shipment of their new 2018 Gatewood Cape finally arrived from whatever port it came from.

After giving their staff some time to get the goodies out of the boxes, they let me grab one of each of the two new color capes and two of the old ones so I could take some side-by-side pictures of the new vs old.

They released this new version of the Gatewood Cape on March 07, 2018.

Below are the pictures – and thanks to the SMD staff for letting me take – and share – these pictures, even before they were released.

oh, btw, I have additional information on the fabric of the new shelter available over on this patreon page — specs that SMD has not yet publically released, yet allowed me too share — so, if you are a patron of mine (become one) you can view that stuff.

note: as of today, march 12, 2018, the smd website incorrectly shows what fabric is being used on this new version of the gatewood cape

Enjoy!

  1. I’ve used a Gatewood Cape for about 10 years as my go-to shelter and I just keep coming back to it. I’m curious if you plan on doing a comparison review of the performance of old and new capes. I’ll admit that 40% smaller pack size and a couple ounces lighter are intriguing numbers.

  2. I had the 2018 version, sent it back for refund first day it arrived, built is super mediocre, some stitches would already come out (stitchings not properly ended) !!, it is built in Bangladesh all this to make a more profitable business, It could have been manufactured in Vietnam for example wich means better quality. No information is given about the Deniers of this new fabric wich personally i found two thin.
