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.

My experience

First hike with Zpack Duplex and it was brutal, high of 22. Even though I know it is 3 season, it did AS WELL as all my others, but light as a feather, but very well built. Bottom line, it was well worth the money. We joked that it is like sleeping in a shopping bag but, again, preformed like all others. Amazing.

Odd service.

I haven't used the poles at this time. However, at first sight they seem excellent for more purposes,: being very short in the folded state for exceptional packability. A major problem though, is that a cancelled order for one pole was filled and charged for anyway, and no messages to the company could elicit any response for explanation and correction. Thus, the overall experience was poor.

Good carbon fiber pole!

Great. It arrived in record time. It's a sturdy, durable pole. The best part is that it saved me almost a pound in weight, instead of carrying 2 trekking poles. Great product!
