The Erätoveri Tarp is a highly recommended spacious yet lightweight camping shelter from the Finnish brand Vihe Vaellus. Covering an expansive 2.9 x 2.9 m, and with numerous lashing points, the Erätoveri Tarp can be pitched in a wide variety of styles and provides shelter for up to 4 people.

Made from a durable PU Nylon, the Erätoveri Tarp features a silver coating on the underside, which helps to reflect heat and light downwards, resulting in a far more inviting shelter. With a total of 21 lashing points (16 around the edges, and 5 on top), the Erätoveri Tarp is a truly versatile shelter, yet weighs in at just 715 g.

  A bit like The Godfather 2, good in parts. After a couple of trips out with this purchase these are my impressions. The good: A lightweight large tarp that does the job. It's about 10 oz lighter than the 'Hoochie' Tarp, so good when carrying with other kit. The not so good: The guy lines provided are a waste of time, they are too thin and don't hold the tarp rigid enough, so I bought some of the Tarp lines used with the Aussie 'Hoochie' Tarp. It's lighter construction than the 'Hoochie' so I'm not sure whether it's going to be as hard wearing only time will tell. I'm not too happy with the 'holes' with the brass inserts. They seem a bit flimsy compared to the Hoochie I used on my Fundamental Bushcraft Course, but again time will tell. Overall if carrying weight is important then it's the right choice. However, if long life and more robust construction is needed I'd go for the Aussie 'Hoochie' model. If you add in the cost for the extra guy lines they are roughly the same price anyway. I knocked off a star each for the lines and corner brass rings. Usual good service from Woodlore.
