Straight tent poles are an alternative way to pitch tents and tarps that are designed to be set up with trekking poles.

Our tent poles are made from high quality wrapped carbon fiber tubing with internal carbon ferrules. They are made to withstand high wind conditions.

The poles fold flush with equal length sections. The short folded length allows them to pack with your tent, horizontally in your backpack. You may wish to add a Tent Pole Sack to protect your tent material, or to keep multiple poles organized.

They are bound together with shock cord. The ends have vinyl end caps.

If you want to use these with a tarp, or on an exterior tent pull out, you might want a tent pole cup to hold it in place.

We do not do any carbon cutting, but you can cut these down yourself with a hack saw or rotary saw to fit shorter tents. Just cut off the end and replace the vinyl end cap. You will not hit the shock cord.

Tent Requirements:

A Hexamid Pocket tarp takes a single 48" (122 cm) pole.

A Solplex takes a 48" (122 cm) main pole and a 32" (82 cm) back pole.

A Plexamid takes a 48" (122 cm) pole.

A Duplex takes two 48" (122 cm) poles or Freestanding Flex Poles

A Triplex takes two 48" (122 cm) poles

If you wish to prop up the sides of any of our tents use 32" (82 cm) poles with Pole Cups.
