DD Ultimate Versatility Package
The DD Ultimate Versatility Camping Starter Package is the perfect balance of weight, versatility and pack-down size. It really is the one package that will have you fully kitted out to go camping in comfort, particularly if you plan to visit campsites or locations you are unfamiliar with in the UK or even further afield.
Are you relatively new to camping and ever asked yourself what do you need for camping? or what are the camping essentials? Then the DD Ultimate Versatility Camping Starter Package is what you need.
Compiled by Wylies Outdoor Worlds owner 'Drew Wylie' after testing various DD Tarps, DD Hammocks, and everything else DD has to offer on average 4 nights a week, every week, regardless of the UK weather conditions. Drew frequently enjoys exploring new locations on his own adventures. This required the need for a camping kit that covers sleep and shelter while primarily taking into account the flexibility of each of the items on his camping kit list but also asking himself the question "how will I pack my backpack for a camping trip"
The Versatility Package Includes:
- DD 3x3 Pro Tarp
- DD Travel Hammock/Bivi
- DD Inflatable Mat XL
- DD Jura 2 Sleeping Bag
- DD Superlight Amsteel Rope
- DD Fixed Loops x2
- DD Superlight Pegs (x6)
- DD Hiking Poles
- DD Paracord (10m)
DD 3x3 Pro Tarp:
The DD 3x3 Pro Tarp really is one of the most flexible camping tarpaulins available on the market today. Based largely on the standard DD 3X3 Tarp with the addition of more fixing points allowing even more tarp configurations and set up options.
- In addition to the fully waterproof 3000mm PU coating:
- 21 reinforced attachment points (2 more than the DD Tarp 3x3) allow for the Tarp 3x3 Pro to be set up in countless ways.
- 16 eyelets placed on each outer attachment point to allow the DD Tarp 3x3 Pro to be used with poles or pegged tightly onto the ground.
- Guy line stowage loops: corner and middle side loops have velcro to allow folding of and storing the guy lines when packing - (handy to keep the guy lines tangle-free between uses, while still connected to the tarp for quick set-up).
- Press studs: positioned on two sides of the tarp, these allow you to attach multiple tarps together (up to a maximum of 4 tarps in a large 6m x 6m square shape). Also allow for advanced tarp configurations for both hammock and ground dwellers: for example, close one end together when used in the diamond formation with a hammock.
