The 19.5mm Tarp Pole is a simple, lightweight, standing-height pole designed for use with our Tarps
and other simple shelters (it works superbly with our Altai). It folds down to approximately 52.5 cm (20.7"), and, thanks to a two-part bottom section with spring-loaded buttons, the Tarp Pole can extend from 186 cm (73.2") to 214 cm (84.3") in 7 cm (2.8") increments. It also boasts a reversible, screw-in tip that can be used with fabric pockets (such as on the Altai), or with rings or loops (as on the Tarps).

Very light yet very strong, our V-Peg is made from hardened aluminum, and it has specifically engineered thick yet light spine and sides to prevent bending. Its "V" cross section provides a fine balance of penetration in hard ground and holding capability in looser soil. Anodized a highly visible gold, the V-Peg also has an integrated string loop for easy removal from the ground.

Our Y-Peg is exceptionally strong yet quite lightweight, and its "Y" profile gives both excellent penetration in hard ground and plenty of surface area for reliable hold in softer conditions. Both because of its shape and its durable, hardened aluminum body, the sturdy Y-Peg can be hammered into hard ground. Its bright, gold anodized color makes it easy to see, and an attached string loop provides for easy removal.

Our new aluminum Tri-Peg is our lightest, and, like our V- and Y-Pegs, is gold anodized for high visibility. Its triangular cross section affords strength as well as good holding power in a range of soil types, and its purposefully smooth, polished corners were designed specifically for the lightweight 2mm guy line we use in our Yellow Label Tents.

Made from solid Titanium, the super strong yet lightweight stinger can easily handle being pounded into hard ground, and its integrated string loop makes for easy removal.

So-named for its fluted square cross-section, our new X-Peg is built from extruded, then anodized, aluminum, and is designed to take on the most demanding usage. The X-peg’s 30 cm (12 in) length and burly construction make it an ideal option when you need maximum penetration and holding power in hard ground, and it is stout enough to be hammered into the ground, even with a light sledge. An open, upside down “L” hook near the top of the peg allows quick securing of guy lines, and a separate closed ring has an attached string loop to make removing the peg easier.

Lightweight, tough and remarkably versatile, our Snow & Sand pegs are unique. After finding most so-called snow pegs to be too soft – they would bend in any but the fluffiest snow – we developed our own. Made from hardened aluminum, our Snow Pegs are build to withstand both very hard usage, including the inevitable contact with shovels, crampons and other winter gear, and very hard snow. At the same time, they are remarkably lightweight. The integrated line and hook gives you the flexibility either to bury the peg sideways in snow or sand, Deadman style, or to use it in a traditional, upright fashion.

Our proprietary 2 & 3 mm red and white guy line cord is strong, light and easy to see. Its interwrap construction interweaves super strong Vectran cord longitudinally with polyester, producing a cord with no sheath to slip, near zero stretch, minimal water absorption, an easy-to-handle soft feel, high UV resistance, and a stout 60 kg (132 lb) breaking strength for the 2 mm and 80 kg (176 lb) for the 3mm.
Our sturdy and reliable line runners are available in 2 and 3 mm sizes, and are designed to work perfectly with our 2 and 3 mm guy lines. They lock securely, and are easy to adjust even while wearing mittens.
3 mm guy line and line runners come standard with all tents except for our Yellow Label tents which come with 2 mm guy line and line runners.
