Alum Pole - Kelty Adjustable
About Me Casual/ Recreational
Comments about Kelty Adjustable Pole for Tarps:
Read reviews before purchasing so no surprises or complaints. Not for the ounce-cutting minimalists. Excellent for RV & car camping setups.Strapped to side of full sized backpack for hikers & canoe campers is doable. Agree with reviewer who suggested adjustments to less than its minimun lenght would improve versatilty.Tip: purchased a small KONG (dog toy) to slip over top spike for positioning in center of tarps w/no center grommet.SunnySports +++ on timely confirmations, S&H and delivery.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sturdy Poles Great for Larger Tarps
By Brewer Bob
from Novi, MI
About Me Avid Adventurer
I bought these for a recent car camping trip with my family to use with the large Kelty Noah Tarp (16 ft x 16 ft) and they worked great in significant rain and winds. They are not designed for light weight travel but worked great for this use.

good set of poles

About Me Professional/Guide
I planned on using my tarp for river trips with oars as poles but ended up using the tarp car camping as well and needed poles. These poles are heavier duty than I expected and way easier to pack around than oars for car camping. I may buy more and another tarp (smaller than 16').
held up in high winds
from Seattle, Wa
I used two of these poles with the kelty 16 and was very impressed with how they held up in high winds during a weekend camping trip. They were easy to set up and did not shift during the storms that came through. Since there isn't a storage bag available, I used a storage bag for a camp chair and put the tarp along with the poles in it and that works great. I used two tie downs for each pole and that worked great! I have orderd two more poles because I have discovered that these poles along with the tarp work better, are easier to travel with and are more durable than the easy up canopy I have.

These are great poles, though I wish they could be adjusted to a shorter length. A carrying case of some type would be nice, also. The only thing that keeps them from getting 5 stars is that they can't go shorter. Got the best price and free shipping on two at Sunnysports.
