Compact Tent Poles


When considering a suitable tent for yourself or your band of bold adventurers, it is usually the shape, size and colours that first come to mind. Only at a later stage do other aspects come to mind regarding the overall functionality of the tent. One of these aspects is the tent poles: A less flashy yet essential component of keeping the elements of nature at bay. Those capable of conjuring Leomund's Tiny Hut do not need tent poles, but the rest of us undoubtedly do. On behalf of our tents, it is time to take a stand!


An Old Challenge!

The challenge of transporting mediaeval-inspired tents goes back to… well, the Middle Ages! It is no secret that a canvas tent's sturdy and roomy qualities come with a heavy and cumbersome price that requires a well-built carriage, chivalrous car or specially trained donkeys. But there are improvements to be found that can help protect your adventurous journey from a critical failure. Just look at the case of King Jarl Skulldrinker: What to do when their beloved canvas tent faced an impossible transportation task? It was a critical failure! They did not know what to do. All hope was lost! Until an artisan designer from Epic Armoury came to their rescue with the new compact tent poles! Compact! Convenient! Congratulations!


A Talk About Tent Poles

Jests aside, regular tent poles and compact tent poles each have their advantages and disadvantages. Your best option depends on your specific needs. The standard tent poles are cheaper to buy, more expensive to ship, more straightforward to set up and perfect if your group uses a van for transporting multiple tents. The compact tent poles never exceed 110 centimetres in length and are made of the same durable powder-coated iron as the regular tent poles. They are well-suited for transporting gear in a regular-sized car. Have a look as Gabriele and René demonstrate and discuss the design of our tent poles.
