Light My Fire Spork Titanium

Light My Fire Spork Titanium

17.99 USD

In Finland we have this thing called LuHa. In Sweden they made a Spork. We'd prefer the LuHa but you can have a Spork too, if you want. This comes a step closer to LuHa, as it's made of titanium. My god, they're learning!

DD SuperLight Hammock

DD SuperLight Hammock

As the name says, this hammock is made to be as light and compact as possible without sacrificing size and quality. Fits in a smock pocket, how about that! No reason not to carry a hammock with you all the time. Especially good for saving space when camping and hiking. Complete package, includes Whoopie Slings, Tree Huggers and Soft Shackle carabiners!

DD SuperLight Tarp

DD SuperLight Tarp

83.99 USD

An incredibly lightweight full size tarp, basically the same thing as DD's 3x3 Tarp but weighing only a ridiculous 460 grams! Large enough for all kinds of setups, with a LOT of attachment loops. Works well on its own or over a hammock. Comes with a stuffsack, lines and even pegs!

Särmä Erakko tarp, 2,5x2,5 m

Särmä Erakko tarp, 2,5x2,5 m

34.99 USD

Our very own little tarp, made in co-operation with DD Hammocks. Erakko (for all you foreign devils that´s "hermit" in Finnish) is as the name suggest a loners tarp, designed for packability whilst still being comfortably large enough for one person to sleep under. Lightweight and packable, this is one fantastic tarp for pitching one-man shelters!

DD SuperLight Pyramid Tent

DD SuperLight Pyramid Tent

104.99 USD

If you think tents are too heavy, here's one that you will barely notice in your rucksack! At a bit over one pound it's the lightest one we sell.

If you think tents are too heavy, here's one that you will barely notice in your rucksack! At well below two pounds (incl. accessories) it's the lightest tent with a groundsheet in our selection!

The Superlight Tarp Tent is a frame-free singleskin tent, which means there is no inner tent or poles and weight has been reduced incredibly low figures as a result. The tent still has a separate bug net and waterproof groundsheet, so comfort and functionality isn't sacrificed all that much.

The tent is pitched by pegging the tent to the ground and then using a light spreader pole (included) to prop up the foot end and two 135 cm hiking poles (not included) for the taller side. This kind of dual-use of hiking poles is a smart way to reduce weight. From there it's just a matter of using guy lines to increase the space inside, open vents and secure the tent. Optional guy-out points can be used to secure the tent in stronger winds.

Room for one person and gear, the layout has a separate space for muddy boots so keeping the interior clean is possible.

Single skin tents in general don't handle condensation as well as double-walled models, but this model has generous vents and no seams run horizontally on the fabric, which would cause condensed water to stop and drop.

Material and care

The fabric is single-layered SuperLight ripstop nylon with a waterproof PU coating and taped seams. Any washing should be done in lukewarm water by hand with mild detergents.

Repeated folding seams could weaken the fabric over time, so the manufacturer recommends to just stuff the tent in its bag. We like this approach, because it's also easier to do.
