60" Carbon Fiber Tent Pole
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.

I’m certainly not a trekking pole guy and love to save weight and bulk when I can so since getting the Altaplex, I needed a pole that was tall enough for it and this pole fits the bill! Light weight, durable, and affordable - this is my solution!
I got my package and at first didn't even think there was a pole in it the it's so light. I've only used it on two overnights so far as my school year is ramping up. It may be sac religious that I combine this pole with the HMG Ultamid but it feels like a perfect combo. I highly recommend this pole so far.
very much like this pole set up for my altaplex, I was sitting in my tent wondering if you tried to do a duel arch pole set up just outside of the zipper line to ease getting around the pole . a simple string connecting the bottom of poles to keep them from slipping out of position or stake out the poles . I may try this option on my own with fiberglass poles before I go to carbon. I with reach out when done .
Works like a champ and you don’t need trekking poles. Another win for Zpacks
Having broken this during a backpacking trip Zpacks agreed to send out a replacement that day, for free, to the UK. Excellent customer service as usual from Zpacks and shows that US customer service is a good head and shoulders above that here in the UK. if only the import duties on products from the USA weren't so exorbitant their class leading gear would be an even more attractive proposition.
