Yeah, we know it says "temporarily unavailable" on this page. Ignore that! We're working with Ruta Locura to provide non-trekking pole users the option to purchase a pole set for the SplitWing Tarp or bundle. SplitWing Carbon Poles can be ordered directly from Ruta Locura. Please continue reading for more information.
We think Ruta Locura makes the best carbon tarp/tent poles on the market. The poles are made-to-order in the USA. Please email Josh at Ruta Locura to order poles by clicking this link.
In your email, please indicate your choice of the following two options below. Both pole sets use Ruta Locura's .460 carbon tubing:
Fixed Length ($71, 3.88oz): This pole set consists of two fixed-length carbon poles. The front pole is the correct length to pitch the tarp with the mesh body and vestibule. It's cut a little long so have some adjustability on uneven ground. Simply pitch the tarp with the front pole slightly to one side. This may be the best option for you if:
- You want the lightest possible pole set
- You don't feel the need to adjust the height/width of the tarp
- You rarely use the tarp by itself (i.e., without the vestibule and/or mesh body)
Adjustable ($86, 4.60oz): This pole set consists of an adjustable-length front pole and a fixed-length rear pole. It uses a machined titanium insert to securely adjust the length of the front pole. This might be for you if:
- You want maximum versatility
- You often use the tarp without the vestibule or mesh body
- You frequently pitch the tarp on uneven ground
