The Tarra combines the shape of a tunnel tent with the structural principles of geodesic design by making use of the best qualities of each. This model is most suitable for application in bad weather as it is encountered at great elevations and in very exposed places. It is easier to pitch than other tents of geodesic design because of the hooks clipping on to the external poles. The spaciousness resembling that of a tunnel tent impresses people who do not expect this from a geodesic.

The innovative details that we employ make sure that it performs as well as it feels once holed up inside. The vent high up in the roof ensures good ventilation while it is safely under the external cover.

The Tarra is frequently used on journeys where people travel to the polar environments, on high mountain adventures and out-of-the-way places where a safe tent is essential. Stability for this type of tent and low weight make it a good choice when strong winds can be the daily fare. Staika appeals to people who smile at gloomy weather reports.

The construction is self-supporting which makes it easy to pitch in awkward places. However, guy lines should always be put to use ensuring that wind does not hurl the tent away.
