Paracord, 15 m

Paracord, 15 m

9.99 EUR

Originally soldiers had to snatch their paracord from used parachutes. Being just the right size for general purpose use and fairly strong too, paracord has since become the de facto universal cord for US military and many others.

Jerven Fjellduken Original

149.99 EUR

Heat reflecting, waterproof, simple and reliable, the Fjellduken Original, or Jerven Bag, is a tarp, poncho, bivvy bag and more all in one. This is what Norwegian hunters and soldiers have been using for the past 30 years, as the makers say "The wheel can not get any rounder!"

Särmä Erakko tarp, 2,5x2,5 m

Särmä Erakko tarp, 2,5x2,5 m

37.99 EUR

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!

Mil-Tec tent peg, steel, 18 cm

Mil-Tec tent peg, steel, 18 cm

0.99 EUR

Proper basic steel pegs, just the perfect size for most smaller tents or tarp setups. Just wide enough to stay in place, nicely curved, folded top and a little hole to attach cord loops, these have pretty much all the little features you could want!

Belgian sleeping bag, surplus

Belgian sleeping bag, surplus

39.99 EUR

This Belgian army mummy style sleeping bag is a great "three season" bag, warm enough for any temperatures above the freezing point and breathable enough for summer nights. A collar on the inside at neck height helps keep body heat from escaping through the opening. Full length zipper on the side, secured by a velcro flap.

French F2 "Bigeard" cap, surplus

French F2 "Bigeard" cap, surplus

2.99 - 4.99 EUR

The beloved Bigeard, one of historys coolest military headpieces ever made with the two-prong "swallowtail" protecting the neck.

Dutch one man tent, surplus

Dutch one man tent, surplus

59.99 EUR

The superbly pompous one man tent of the Dutch army may not be very portable or lightweight, but damn it is so luxurious and what's best, these can be joined together to form as big as tent you would like to have! Excellent for situations where weight is not important, but you want a bombproof shelter and want it cheap - these are very very affordable for what they are!

Dutch mess tin, stainless steel, surplus

Dutch mess tin, stainless steel, surplus

19.99 EUR

The Dutch copy of the British mess kit may look a bit odd, it's not a standard paint tin like most of its kind, but definitively a tad more practical in some aspects. These are made of stainless steel, which is a bit pricey on outdoorware, but not so much when it's army surplus!

The French army pup tent looks like a traditional boy scout contraption but scaled down for two persons. Made of canvas or nylon with waterproof floor.

Important! Almost every tent we get nowadays is made of nylon material. While not as traditional or breathable from the top, it's much lighter especially when wet, much more water resistant, faster drying and likely more durable.

Big enough for two persons, king size for one and barely fits three, the French tent looks like something used decades ago. Well, actually these are just that. If traditional design inspires you, this isn't a half bad option for leisurely camping: it's sturdy, reliable, neutral shade and for a this price you can't go wrong. The ends can be opened up quickly if necessary and the closed design means nothing gets inside if every opening is shut. Additionally they included insect net covered ventilation holes on each end and sides (velcro operated). Can be erected by one person, but much more easily by two.

Dimensions

  • Inside length about 2,1 m, width 1,4 m and height 1 m.
  • We were able to fit inside one Euro size 52 and two 48 persons at the same time, with still enough room for them to sleep. See the extra picture taken inside and please do note the blurry moustache on the left.
  • If you are going solo, a field cot fits inside. With two normal size persons (and no cots) their gear should also fit inside.
  • Measurements packed about 50 x 23 cm.
  • Weight for the whole set something like 3,7 kg. You could probably file some off - the wateproof floor probably makes a third of the tent fabric weight, and some may choose to trim it.

    The nylon version with aluminium poles in their stuff sack weighs less than 2,5 kg, excluding pegs and cords. A bag of 6 mm steel pegs weighs almost one kg by themselves, so there really is room to lose some weight, even though this tent will never be popular with weight weenies.

Contents

  • The tent itself
  • Two poles
  • The pegs might not be included - most probably have them, some might not. Any pegs will do, even sticks if the ground is soft enough.
  • A bunch of cords to secure the tent to ground. Not necessarily enough (some may be lost), but if you're buying a surplus tent, you probably have paracord already.
  • Stuff sack isn't always included, but this will roll up pretty nicely without one. Alternatively you can get just about any shopping bag sized bag for it.

French army surplus

Used, but in good serviceable shape. Should you wish, you can treat the fabric with waterproofing agents. Or why not throw a separate rain cover on the tent? A traditional rain cape will do in a pinch, but a 3 x 3 m tarp is the best. Of course the nylon model is inherently quite water resistant.

Toimiva ja kestävä perusteltta kestävällä telttakankaalla jossa plussana verkotus tuuletusaukoissa, jolloin yöunet myös lapissa taattu. Kestää isältä pojalle, jos ei kovin pahoinpitele. Hiukan painavahko, saattaa vaatia telttakyllästettä mutta muuten 5/5.

If we compare this tent to modern designs its construction is obsolete, and yet I find it quite charming. Perhaps because it reminds me of the first tent I've had as a boy. Nostalgia aside, this tent is quite good if we consider the price. I've received the brand new and complete nylon version. The stakes needs to be replaced for the aluminium ones since the ones included with a tent weight as much as the tent itself but everything else is good. The tent is still to heavy for backpacking though unless you are on a budget, if so you might wish to use hiking poles instead of the tent poles to cut on weight even more. However for car camping or canoeing this tent is very suitable. Not sure how the condensation will be in this tent but increased condensation in a single wall tents is common so will see. Like I said for the price very good.

Huikea härveli, iteltä löytyy tuo puuvillainen versio ja sen säänkestävyyttä testasin Nummessa jussina. Välillä vettä tuli enemmän ja välillä vähemmän, mutta vasta neljäntenä aamuna alkoi nurkista tulla vettä sisään. Tähän hommaan olisi pieni ojitus varmasti jeesinyt. Kattoon olen kerran kyllästettä ruikkinut ja se kesti moitteetta koko setin ilman pressuja tms virityksiä.

Syssyllä tää lähtee viikon vaellukselle. Katotaan miten äijän käy.

Tosi hyvä ja helppo teltta. Myös tarpeeksi miehekäs.
