Need a lift? These fabric cups make it easy to prop up the head or foot of your shelter for more space. You can use a trekking pole with the handle up (out of the mud), or a tent pole, or a stick. The cup catches your pole handle, or tent pole tip securely and without any hassle.

32" (81 cm) Tent Poles are just the right length to prop the head or foot of our tents. Or use a 48" (122 cm) pole at the head or foot of a flat tarp.

One end of the pole cup has a loop that you can attach to any tie out with a lark's head knot. The other end has a Lineloc 3 sewn on so that you can adjust your guy line.

This hybrid version is made from 1.43 oz/sqyd Dyneema Composite Fabric on the inside, with an extra layer of protective 50 denier polyester on the outside. The outer layer gives it more strength and abrasion resistance, prevents fraying, and gives it a nice solid color.

Puncture Strength: 
7.3 lb (32 N)

Cheap extra room

For the price & weight these cups along with either my second hiking pole or the 32” carbon fiber pole zpacks also sells, which I also bought, provide nice additional room in both the head & foot. I watched many plexamid reviews & none did justice to the additional clearance. I’m very happy to have those options.

Trekking Pole Cup

The .9 oz. Trekking Pole Cup is the perfect addition to my Plexamid. Anything that makes my life easier when I arrive at my campsite at night is so welcome. I always want to set up quickly and be done. Sure there are several ways to attach a trekking pole to a line, but if you want to accomplish it in about one second and know that it's going to be perfect every time, then this is the way to do it. I would highly recommend this simple but brilliant piece of gear.

Love it

Smart design, very sturdy, weights basically nothing. Ads a surprising amount of headroom
