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.

Another excellent Zpacks product

I haven't had a ton of usage with it yet, but this provides the stable structure I need and weighs next to nothing.

Duplex Tent (and poles)

I haven’t used them yet. They shipped and arrived quickly though. I did just return from the North Cascades where I used my recently purchased Duplex for a week and I can unreservedly say the tent far exceeded my expectations - love, love, love that tent. Great design. Great product. You guys were wonderful to work with. Thank you!

5 stars

I called to find out if the poles were compatible with my tent and the employee I talked with was very helpful. The poles are great quality and work well with my tent

Buy it.

Even though I use trekking poles I still wanted to check these out and I'm glad I did. It's amazing how light they are and deploy to the ideal height quick and easily. I would definitely recommend these!
