If you find yourself frequently pushing the limits of your Portal, this replacement pole set replaces the standard 8.7mm DAC NFL pole set with a significantly beefier 10.65mm PL pole set. This is the same pole type we use for our CrossBow and WindSaber mountaineering tents and they can handle some serious weather. Using the heavy duty pole set instead of the standard adds 5.8oz compared to the standard pole set. Please note that the heavy duty pole set does not use a swivel like the standard pole set.
- Use in place of the stock pole set on the Portal 2 in severe conditions
- DAC 10.65mm PL poles are designed for the maximum possible strength-to-weight ratio
- 3 Poles (2 long, 1 short)
- Includes pole splint
- Only compatible with the Portal tent
- Portal 2 minimum weight with heavy duty pole set is 3lb 4oz.

For an insignificant 164 grams extra these poles are a MUST HAVE for anyone taking their Portal 2 into any sort of alpine or mid/high-wind environment. Couple this heavy-duty pole set with the ingenious trekking pole outrigger system and I can attest to the fact that the Portal 2 won’t budge, even in some of the most dire weather! We used this system over the course of nearly 90 nights hiking and camping in Patagonia (known for its notoriously high winds!) and have had some of our best night sleeps knowing that when we wake up we won’t be the ones with a flattened tent, as we witnessed on numerous occasions. We don’t feel the need to revert to the original pole set as the weight really is insignificant vs. the peace of mind gained, and set-up is still very easy. Happy trekking.
