Prepare for the unexpected with the lightweight and versatile Arcturus Rapid Shelter Poles (ARSP). Designed to deploy in under a minute, these poles work exclusively with Arcturus Rain Ponchos to create a one-person sleeping structure.
Poles are constructed of durable aluminum and are approximately 116" long with an extended tip that fits directly into the Arcturus Poncho grommet holes.
The Arcturus testing team has successfully used these rapid shelter poles for lightweight backpacking (by pairing with the Arcturus Survival Blanketas ground cloth), as a hunting blind, and for IR heat signature reduction.
Water resistant. Keep an eye on the hood opening for leaks (which will only cinch tight).
These poles create extreme pressure on your poncho corner grommets. If you pop one out, they're easy to repair on your own, but let us know if you've got a problem. Most of our Arcturus Rain Ponchos do not yet have reinforced grommets that can take consistent use from the rapid shelter poles.
