The Big Agnes Backpacking Tarp Pole is a lightweight and adjustable Tarp Pole that can extend from 84cm to 114cm to support the Scout UL Tents.
Big Agnes says:
Multi-use adjustable tent pole compatible with Big Agnes Scout UL series tents, as well as many other tarps and tents.
If you're a cyclist, paddler or hiker who doesn't carry trekking poles, you may wish to consider using this pole to support your Tarp or Big Agnes Scout Tent during your trip. If you regularly use trekking poles then you can use them to save on weight but if you don't the Big Agnes Backpacking Tarp Pole is an excellent alternative for supporting Tarps.
It's simple to use with the push of a button and designed with rubber caps at the ends to protect the tarp from wear and tear.
