NSL Featherlite tent poles from Korean manufacturer DAC are the best choice if you are looking for a strong and lightweight tent rod.
They feature high precision manufacturing, the use of high quality 7001 T6 aluminium and cleverly designed construction.
Each segment has two different diameters for optimum strength. Each segment is widened at the ends where the segments join, and narrowed in the middle. The advantage of this solution is the weight saving and the fact that the segments and the connecting insert have the same diameter increases the overall stiffness and strength of the members.

In this technological process, the fibres of the fabric are impregnated with silicone, making the fabric extremely water-repellent with self-cleaning ability. The so-called lotus blossom effect occurs, where water droplets are repelled from the surface of the fleece, water is not retained in the fabric even when it is imperfectly switched off and quickly drains off in the form of droplets, taking all the dirt with it. Another important effect of siliconisation is a significant increase in the strength, elasticity and tear resistance of the siliconised fibres of the fabric.
At regular intervals, thicker fibers forming a grid are woven transversely and longitudinally into the tropic material, thereby preventing further crack propagation if the fabric is torn.
Aero 3 DAC
An ultra-light, spacious tent for three people with two entrances and vestibules. DAC Featherlite NSL (7001 T6) Duralumin poles with a diameter of 9.5 mm. The flysheet is made of Nylon with RipStop treatment and triple, double-sided siliconization, guaranteeing a water column of 4,000 mm. The flysheet seams are sealed with silicone. The inner tent is firmly connected to the groundsheet and can be erected separately, for example as a mosquito net. The groundsheet is made of Nylon with a Polyurethane coating and a water column of 10,000 mm.

The tent is double-skinned consisting of an inner tent and flysheet. The inner tent has a trapezoidal floor plan with two entrances on its longer sides. The flysheet has two entrances, with two vestibules, suitable for storing packs or for cooking. Both entrances can be half-opened on the left or right side, or both sides at the same time. This option is useful when cooking, for example, to easily create the required windbreak. The flysheet is made of Ripstop treated nylon fabric, which reduces the weight of the tent, while maintaining the strength of the flysheet.
Vents are located at the top of the shorter sides of the flysheet. Vent covers are designed so they are not affected by the wind. This prevents leaks during rain with strong winds.
Pitching the tent
Use the hooks to suspend the inner tent from the duralumin structure. Pull the flysheet over the structure, then attach it to the poles using the Velcro on the underside. Fasten the buckles and pull the flysheet taut. Anchor the tent with pegs and guy ropes.
