Straight Carbon Fiber Tent Poles


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 more rigid and it is not the right material for dome style poles.

The poles are cut to fold flush with equal length sections. They are bound together with 1/16" shock cord. The ends have vinyl end caps. We have three different thicknesses of carbon depending on the length, and strength required for each pole.

Most of our poles have a short folded length, so they can be packed up with your tent (in a tent pole sack). Our Altaplex pole folds to 16" and can be carried in your backpack's side pocket.

If you want to use these with a tarp, or on an exterior tent pull out, you might want a tent pole cup to hold it in place.

Carbon Fiber Tent Poles

Tent Pole Sack:

You can add a stuff sack to keep your poles organized and protect your tent fabric from the pole. The sack is made from black 1 oz/sqyd Cuben Fiber and is 14" long. Fold the top down over your tent poles and use the shock cord draw string to keep them snug like a rubber band. This size won't fit our 58" pole. A longer, wider pole sack for dome tent poles is available on the stuff sacks page.
