A hammock is definitely a nice way to get a good night's sleep - you only need two strong poles a couple of metres apart!

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.

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.

Get some hammock stuff

Although you will do fine with a basic hammock in casual use, you might want to consider protecting yourself from the insects and weather when camping. For the first, get a hammock mosquito net or just the DD Frontline Hammock with an integrated mesh. For the second, check out out selection of shelters and tarps, especially the Särmä Erakko Tarp.

For hammock camping you're gonna need a good sleeping bag too, which we happen to stock!

Don't cheap out on hammocks!

This is sort of a no-brainer, but do get a solid hammock. If we really have to elaborate, just imagine a situation where your hammock fails under your weight.
