    The DD Superlight Tarps are the most common lightweight tarps in bushcraft circles.





    Hilleberg Tarps are high end quality products.

    DECATHLON TARP ARPENAZ KAKI
    600g without cordage and poles

    25 €

    The very low price and the very low weight are very good reasons to burn your first spark holes in that tarp if you should be a beginner!

    This Tarp is relatively light and long lasting.
    It has only 6 attachment points at the sides and 1 attachment point in the middle, but usually that is enough, because it allowes the construction of the most usual set ups:
    Lean to shelter, A-frame shelter, Plow point shelter and a triangular pyramide tent.

    I use it a lot since a couple of years but I usually just take the military poncho with me for hiking, because that is the lighter and most compact version.



    You can pitch that tent in the following video with the Decathlon tarp but not the other versions in the beginning of this thread. With the Decathlon tarp you don't have the option with the wide opened entrance that is showed in this video, because there are missing loops.






    TROPICAL CONDITIONS

    In my opinion hammocks are equipment for tropical conditions, even if one puts an insulation mat in it. With under quilt a hammock set up for cold weather becomes to heavy and bulky in my opinion.

    The DECATHLON QUECHUA HAMMOCK costs only 10 €.
    I use it with sleeping bag inside often during the summer in southern France in combination with the Decathlon Arpenaz Kaki tarp. Both are absolutely OK, relatively lightweight and very cheap.
    I don't use it for trekking in Germany, where I use nearly exclusively military poncho and bivvy bag.

    The ropes of the hammock are to short in my opinion. I replaced them immediately.




    I don't find a video about that incredible light and compact head net here, but I want to mention the Sea to Summit Nano Head Net, which is probably the best option at the current market, if one carries it usually "just in case":
