pretty cool

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Held up great to the wind, but I'll rate 4/5 because is very expensive, almost $50 for a single pole!



pretty cool

Real Nice

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

I bought these for my Noah's Tarp and they're well worth the price. Fairly lightweight and super durable. I bought two for my 12 X 12 which will work great if there aren't any surrounding trees.

Solid and tall

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like my Kelty Adjustable Poles for what they are designed to do. They are burly and hold up to any wind without even blinking. Have great adjustment for large tarps like the 12' Noah Tarp. I do wish that they started a bit shorter as trying to get low enough for a tarp to sleep under is a bit of a trick, but that's not really what they were made for. They do now come in a mesh carry bag which two poles will fit in which is a nice addition for the original packaging.

purchased for use with Kelty Noah's Tarp

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

These poles held up great to the wind on the olympic coast when used with the Kelty Noah's Tarp. I would highly recommend these as they were extremely robust and I feel like they will last a long time.

Good for super light backpack trips

    Super strong pole works well for creating a dry space for backpacking trips. Only 1 lb 10 oz.

    Kelty Poles

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

    Pros: Great when putting up Kelty tarp without surrounding trees. Flexible height adjustment. Folds up.

    Cons: Expensive for single poles. No carrying case. Pretty heavy and can only be used for car-camping (not backpacking).

    Overall, a good purchase that has already been used (we bought 2 poles).

    Need a case.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are great poles- very sturdy and highly adjustable. Kelty needs to make a case for them, though. I have not found a good one yet, so mostly just tie something around them to hold the sections together. That doesn't protect the elastic inside from being abraded, though.

    Verastile and Sturdy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought this pole to shore up the center interior of a large screen house/tent - really helps with wind and rain shedding. Had to flip it so the point went into the ground, and it didn't bend/break. Have also used it to peak out a rain tarp with point in a grommet, works like a charm. A little difficult to raise/lower while in place because there it twists around and you have to find the hole again, but not a big deal.

    Not too bad

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Good pole. Works well with the Noah Tarp. Price is a bit high for one pole.

    A must

      If you buy the tarp you have to get these poles. They are easy to use and make your tarp set up a breeze.
