    Only one pole!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Despite the picture, this item only comes with one pole. Since I needed two, I purchased a second pole from sunny sports dot com. I was surprised when my order showed up from sunnysports because it came with two poles for the same price. That’s right, two poles for the price of one from backcountry. Poles are identical, same brand, length and material...identical. Save some bucks and go to sunny sports. The product is otherwise good quality and arrived as scheduled.

    Bikepacking Tarp Tent Essentials

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I'm quite happy with this pair of poles. I use them with a tarp for lightweight camping. They are tall enough, can adjust down short enough, and pack down decently. The rubber tip on one end doesn't slip on the tarp or the ground, and the spike fits perfectly in a grommet or stakes into the ground. It would be nice if these were lighter or packed down even more compactly but the durability and affordability are a fine trade-off.

    Gets the job done

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    As a universal tent pole these get the job done. I've use them in pairs as well as a solo pole to prop up a rain or shade fly. It would be nice to have a little more adjustability but for ease and convenience these poles work well.

    a little small but gets the job done

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Perfect for tent vestibules but not much else since i have the smaller one there is not a ton of other uses for it unless you want to use it for shelter which is also a great function. I would recommend going with a bigger pole though in my opinion.

    The best out there...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this compact, adjustable pole. I use this a lot when I go backpacking to use my tarp over my tent in front to keep the rain out while I can have my chair under the tarp just right outside of my tent. I have two poles on both ends of my front tarp. The back tarp I used the guylines. One pole I use full extension and other is just one inch drop to make the rain to run off to one corner of my front tarp. I like this pole a lot better than REI. The pole is much smaller rod and very sturdy.

    Solid lightweight packable pole

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This tent/tarp pole packs to 3 sections and is very lightweight. Even so it has a thick enough wall to offer strong support. It is very well built, good tolerances and it is of higher quality and stronger than expected. This product exceeded my expectations all around.

    I have a Marmot Earlylight 2P tent that needs a replacement pole. I'm assuming these will work, but if anyone has any feedback I'd appreciate it.

    Best Answer

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I don't think that this pole will work as a replacement pole for your tent, this is designed more to be a support pole for tarps and shelters like the MSR Zing Tarp, not a structural pole for your standard camping tent. You might be better off contacting Marmot to see if they could ship you a replacement pole.

    I have a Hillary Legend tent i bought at a yardsale.. I need the poles to set the tent up.. But I don't know what size I need.. Can you help me with this? It didn't have any paperwork with the tent..


    Best Answer

    Your best bet would be to lay out the tent and take measurements along the area the poles would be. There are a few different size Hillary Legends and you've probably found out you can't buy them anymore. Unless someone on the site has a Hillary Legend and chimes in, this would be your best bet.

    I am planning to use this pole in not quite standard way which is cfritical to diameter of the top and bottom tubes. I was not able to find anywhere the diameter of tubes for this construction. Can anybody help?



    What is the overall lengths of this pole...

    What is the overall lengths of this pole when folded up?

    folded up I am not exactly sure but similar products run in the neighborhood of 2 feet per section. And they are sold in 5 and 8 foot poles so the 5 foot should be about 1.5 feet per section and the 8 foot should be about 2.5 feet give or take

    Do you get 2 per order?
