The Nordisk Kari 20 Basic Cotton Tarp is a 20 sqm large and easy-to-handle tarp that suits the Nordisk Legacy look and feel. It protects against rain and strong sunlight and can be used either in combination with a tent or as a stand-alone providing extra space for luggage or gathering. Together with the tarp come two strong steel poles, 10 steel V-pegs with hole for added strength in sandy ground, and guy ropes offering a variety of set-up possibilities where you can use poles, trees or maybe a 4x4 wheeler or whatever available for anchoring.
The story behind the name
Kari (Kári) is a term for wind and was in ancient Norse mythology personified by Kári, who was the heir to his father Fornjót’s kingdoms, making him the ruler of Finland and Kvenland. Kári is the father of Frosti (‘frost’), or elsewhere named Jökul, which means ‘icicle, ice, glacier’ – and the grandfather of Snær the Old (Snærr inn gamli’), meaning ‘Snow the Old’.
