The hammock works brilliantly in your yard or as your shelter when backpacking. No need to look for a campsite for hours no matter how bumpy the terrain is. All you need is a couple of sturdy trees. You won’t even need those trees in your yard if you have a modern wonder known as the hammock stand.

DD Hammocks

The British company DD Hammocks is our partner of choice when it comes to outdoor hammocks. Their idea is to take the bare bones of what's needed and build on that; underblankets, mosquito nets, tarps etc.

Benefits of a hammock

Hammock camping might be your thing if you want to carry something lighter than a tent but that offers better shelter than a tarp and a moss bed. Hammocks come in many styles, and you can modify them for different types of weather.

Hammock without a mosquito net

If you’re looking for a simple hammock for just basking in the sun in a bug-free zone, a hammock without a mosquito net will be just perfect for you. However, the net is quite nice if your yard has other creepy-crawlies in addition to your disturbing neighbor Hubert.

Särmä Erakko hammock

Developed with DD Hammocks, the Särmä Erakko hammock is Varusteleka's answer to the world of hammocking. This hammock is as simple as they get, everything extra has been removed. This is truly reflected in the price. You'll just get everything else you might need separately.

Hammock with a mosquito net

Are you eager to use the hammock for camping but don’t want to donate blood to millions of tiny vampires? Get a hammock with a mosquito net. No need to mummify in your sleeping bag or pour tar oil or some suspicious modern concoction all over you. The net also protects you from flies and horseflies if you wanna take a nap on your yard or balcony. If you have enough bug spray and that mad stubbornness we Finns call “sisu”, you’re more than welcome to try coping without one. It will not be a very pleasant experience though. We recommend the DD Frontline Hammock.

Hammock accessories

Hammocks are very versatile thanks to different kinds of hammock gear. When camping, we recommend a big enough tarp as a canopy to protect you from rain. You can sleep like a baby in your hammock even in winter when you take along a good sleeping bag and a sleeping pad. The sleeping bag is not enough on its own because you need some insulation between the hammock and your butt. If you have acquired a hammock with bad ropes and slings or it doesn’t have them at all, check out our shelter equipment. There you might find a remedy for that, too.
