Tent pegs and tent poles

A handy bushcrafter can whittle tent pegs from pretty much anything. However, you shouldn’t whittle anything in somebody else’s forest without permission. Besides a modern tent peg beats a wooden stake in everything but primitive camping and vampire slaying, both of which are worth preserving though. An aluminum peg is ultralight, durable, and easy to pack. Keep enough of these babies with you. You’ll thank yourself later when you need to fasten the tarp again after a storm.

We also sometimes have military surplus tent poles. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that these are used for setting up army tents. The small ones. A smart person will come up with other cool uses for these. Maybe.

Carabiners

Carabiner, karabiner, carabiner clip, snap ring… a dear child has many names. These handy gadgets are used in all sorts of rope activities from climbing to camping. They are not that pretty in Japanese rope bondage though, but they are perfect for setting up a hammock or a tarp. Make sure you select the right type. The heavy-duty carabiners designed for climbing are perfect for hammocks, too. However, the small carabiners are only suited for keychains, setting up tarps or hanging lightweight stuff from your backpack. Please read the product description carefully before clicking any of these in your basket. We would hate to lose you. Literally.

Hammock accessories

Hammock camping is more fun than a clown on fire. It is even more fun to set up sleeping bag for the weather.
