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, surplus backpack and follow the call of the wild. You will sleep beautifully on a soft mossy bed listening to sweet songs of the wilderness.
