've been impressed with their combination of very lightweight, excellent build quality and utility. I often use trekking poles, but when I don't these work very well. I highly recommend them.

These ultralight carbon fiber tent poles are the perfect substitute for setting up our tents if you do not use trekking poles. The 48” size works with our Plexamid, Duplex and Triplex tents.

We also have a 32" Carbon Fiber Tent Pole for propping up the head and foot ends of your tent.

  • Our tent poles are made from high-quality wrapped carbon fiber tubing with internal carbon ferrules. The tubes are stiff and have a high strength to weight ratio.

  • Straight tent poles are an alternative way to pitch tents and tarps that are designed to be set up with trekking poles. This carbon is rigid, unlike dome-style tent poles.

  • The poles are cut to fold flush with equal length sections. They are bound together with shock cord. The ends have vinyl end caps.

  • Our poles have a short folded length, which makes them easy to pack up with your tent (in a tent pole sack).

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

  • If you want to keep your poles organized or protect your tent fabric from the pole(s), add our Tent Pole Sack.

  • We do not do any carbon cutting, but you can cut these down yourself with a hacksaw or rotary saw. Just cut off the end and replace the vinyl end cap.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two-year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

Light and durable

These work as advertised and fit the need for tent support. Easy to assemble and disassemble.

Not as versatile

Great, high quality/lightweight and strong poles. I know zpacks has these cut at the recommended height. I just find it's too tall.. Bath tub floor gets hiked up too high. I can angle them out more, but that makes the pitch wonky. I do like them for when I'm not bringing trekking poles. It works be nice if there was a way to make a few inches of adjustment on these for different terrains. Overall, I'm happy with the poles!

Poles are great. Strong and light and fold up to less than 12 inches.

Work well to support duplex tent if I don’t bring trekking poles and work great if there is not a stick or two to pull out sidewalls.

Great items

They are deceptively light, and do the trick. Great product and great build quality
