Tarps and shelter halves

If you fancy a lighter backpack and are not afraid of monsters that lurk in the dark, a tarp shelter might be your thing. We have both new bushcraft tarps and used army surplus tarps, and they both have their uses. If you prefer to sleep in a tent, don’t close this page yet. A tarpaulin is also a fantastic additional shelter for your camp kitchen and living room as long as you keep the sparks away from it. When the sky keeps falling for the fifth day in a row, you won’t need to huddle in the tent all the time. Read the full story

Modern bushcraft tarps

Modern bushcraft tarps are light and take very little space when packed. They dry easily and are easy to set up. They also come in many sizes. An ideal choice for weight-conscious hikers. You can set up a tarp in many different ways. Click on the images of various products in this group and you’ll get good tips for different setups. The basic idea is that the campers and their stuff stay as dry as possible.

Army tarps, surplus

Smelly, heavy, ugly, yet ever so wonderful. Old army tarps combine the bad characteristics of a tent and modern tarp, but they do take you on a fantastic journey back in time. Finnish long-range recon troops slept under tarps in all kinds of weather during WWII. Tarp shelters were also used by many hunters and trappers in the old days. Modern armies, of course, have these in more advanced materials. However, sometimes we get lucky and get the good old stuff. Put on your trusty lumberjack jacket, framed canvas backpack and follow the call of the wild. You will sleep beautifully on a soft mossy bed listening to sweet songs of the wilderness.

Don’t forget the shelter equipment

Usually the products in this group are what they say are, in other words, pieces of fabric. It is pretty much impossible to do that much with just fabric except roll yourself into a mummy and sleep in a muddy puddle. However, if you want something more practical, you might want to consider some additional accessories with your tarp.

Paracord is very sturdy general-purpose cord that you can never have too much. A small carabiner is also pretty handy to have when setting up a tarp. Whether you need tent pegs or not depends on where and how you plan on camping. If you are allowed to chop down trees, you can easily whittle some pegs using our Skrama. If you’re not allowed to touch the trees, you should either make the pegs in advance or simply buy them.
