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! Lightweight, durable, and affordable - this is my solution!

These ultralight carbon fiber tent poles are the perfect substitute for setting up our Altaplex Tent if you do not use trekking poles that extend to 58-60". 

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.

Length: 60" (152 cm)

Outer Diameter: .500" (13 mm)

Don’t notice I’m carrying it, very pleased each night I’ve got it.

Light and Easy

Awesome experience. I did successfully cut 2 inches off so it works for my Altraplex perfectly.

Good quality, wrong length, questionable service?

I purchased this for my Altaplex because it was the suggested pole for that tent. The quality is great and the weight was spot on. My issue with this product is that it is the wrong size. It is much too long (by about 6-8 inches). When I spoke with customer support, I was told that they knew it was the wrong size and that this product was going back to the “drawing board” for re-sizing. She said that when the new one released, I could send mine in to exchange it. I was also told to cut mine down though to make it fit for current use. I asked if I would still be able to exchange it for the right size if I cut it shorter, and the answer was no… I was a bit confused and annoyed by the entire conversation and just stored it in the closet while I wait for the new one to release.

60" Carbon Fiber Tent Pole

I like the 60" carbon pole for my Altaplex. I found it to be very stable over the pole jack that was used with my trekking pole. I would recommend just going with the 60" carbon pole.
