Särmä Erakko Tarp, 2.5 x 2.5 m

Price 39.99 USD excluding VAT

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 suggests a loner 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!

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 suggests a loner 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!

Designed to work equally well as a tarp for normal on-the-ground sleeping and for hammock use.

  • Dimensions 250 x 250 cm / 98.5" x 98.5" (345 cm / 136" diagonally from corner to corner).
  • Weight (without the stuff sack) 550 g / 19.4 oz.
  • Nine tie down points, reinforced at the sides and corners.
  • Material 190 T polyester with polyurethane coating (waterproof 3000 mm), taped center seam.
  • Comes with a simple stuff sack.
  • Great for hammocking! When pitched diagonally as a "diamond", this tarp covers up any hammock nicely.

The model is based on DD Hammocks´ 3x3 Tarp, it´s just smaller and simplified: we cut down the size by 50 cm / 19.5" on each side and removed a few attachment points, this also means this tarp is a third smaller in pack size and 240 g / 85 oz. lighter than DD´s 3x3 model! Unlike DD Hammocks we did not include the guy lines and pegs in the package. The logic behind this is that you can make pegs from any sticks you find in the woods and most people still end up replacing the original guy lines with some of your own favorite cordages. This way we were able to slice off a bit of the price too!

However if you really want some cord and pegs with this, we do have them of course.

Pro-Tip: For packing and carrying the Erakko hammock and tarp we recommend the Särmä TST Utility Pouch L, it fits both the tarp and hammock plus all needed attachment gear just perfectly!

Founded in 2005, the British DD Hammocks supplies proper quality hammocks, tarps, and other related stuff. Along with the common joe, campers, hikers, etc., a large customer base is in the British military. If it's good enough for war zones, it should do well in civilian life too. Go check out their web page, DDhammocks.com.

Näin liki kolmen vuoden käytön jälkeen voi todeta, että muuten ok mutta onhan toi kangas aika höttöä, ei tarvitse paljoa osumaa oksasta tai hiertymistä niin on reiillä. Menee nyt maavaatteeksi ja kesän jälkeen roskiin. Maailma pelastuu näillä ”laatuvarusteilla”

Laavukangas oli DD frontlinen päällä kaksi yötä kun vettä satoi ja makuupussi pysyi kuivana. Hieman epäilytti 2,5x2,5 koko mutta riitti kuitenkin.

Kaksi yötä vietin metsässä kuivalla kelillä. Riippumatto ja laavukangas osoittautuivat täydelliseksi yhdistelmäksi, nukuin paremmin kuin kotona. Sateella olisin juuri ja juuri ollut suojassa, mutta jos tuulen suunta olisi muuttunut ja sadetta tullut, olisi joko jalat tai pää kastunut. Viides tähti jäi puuttumaan juuri 50cm liian pienten mittojen takia. Muuten erittäin hyvä.

I bought two of these tarps. They are light and durable. One is big enough to make a two man shelter or a one man lean too. I would definitely recommend this tarp

Excellent piece of kit. A perfect fit for my Hennessey Leaf hammock and easier to rig than my typhoon tarp. ☺ ⛺.

Klassiset erätoverin mitat. Eli jo vuosikymmeniä sitten toimivaksi todetut. Keskikohdan lenkki voisi olla tarpin kummallakin puolella, sille olisi helppo keksiä monta erilaista käyttöä, kuten lampun ripustaminen.

Vaellusteltasta saa muuten tarpin kanssa mukavan lippakioskin. On miellyttävää möngertää ulos teltasta katoksen alle, eikä sateeseen. Katos tuo myös lisätilaa absidille, aina ei kamoja mahdu käsittelmään sen suojissa kurjalla kelillä. 2,5m kantiinsa on passeli mitta tähänkin.

Nice! DD quality with the Finnish twist. I use mine "loue" style like in the photos; I've never used it for a hammock so I can't say about that. Pitched this way it's the perfect size for one man + backpack and rifle; you could probably squeeze two people in if you're okay with being close. If the rain is coming down and it's windy in just the right way, you might get some rain entering the shelter near your feet- but that's why you packed a gortex bivvy... you are using the USGI MSS, right?

One thing I really like is that the bag/stuffsack is oversized (I almost feel like they repurposed it from DD's bigger tarps) but for me this is a huge plus. I can quickly stuff the tarp away without having to worry about getting it super tight or filling every nook and cranny in the bag. It's plenty big to hold the tarp crammed in in a hurry, as well as 4 stakes and 4 guy lines that I have from my other DD tarp.

Oli käytössä riippumaton kanssa yhden kesän. Tähän tarkotukseen ihan ok verme mutta kankaan materiaali ei oo mitään kestävää, haalistuu nopeesti auringossa ja nyt viimekesän jäliltä otin taas esiin ja repes liitokaistaan.

Brought this two years ago and boy did it come in handy many times. It's always fastened to my backpack so it's always there. Used it as a groundsheet when out on a family picknick, used it to protect my stuff when paddling. As a shelter from the sun when at the beach. Rain cover, lean to shelter it even served as a giant flag one time.
One time one of the tighout points failed when one of the kids crashed through the guyline, a calm evening with the sewing machine took care of it and It has held up ever since.
It's good quality, durable and just works!
Hoping to see a camo version!
