Tensa Trekking Treez hammock stand

(5 customer reviews)


A truly backpack-ready hammock stand, Trekking Treez are stout carbon fiber trekking poles that convert to a stand, for backpackers like us committed to sleeping in hammocks even in tree-sparse wilderness. If you do hike but don’t use trekking poles, consider Tensa Solo to save money. If you don’t hike, Tensa4 is a better choice.

We sell sides individually (one pole), because one is enough when single trees or similar hanging points are available, and many prefer to hike with only one as lightest.

Each side of the current version 2.0 “Svelte” adds about 12 ounces to your base weight, with 12 ounces of pole in your hand. The system packs to 19.5″ (50cm) long. Further weight savings accrue from not needing to carry or even own redundant ground-based sleeping gear just in case no suitable trees present at your campsite.

Your gathered-end hammock must have a ridgeline, either integral or you can order one from us to go between the Hubz. Bridge-style hammocks do not require a ridgeline, but the resulting looseness of the unoccupied stand can present complications pitching a tarp.

If you order ONE (1) you get ONE pole

SKU: TT-pole-1 Category:


Poles are adjustable length both in trekking and hammock stand mode, with a maximum hammock hang height at 56″, plenty for gathered-end hammocks up to 12′ long with room for underquilts. Accommodates bridge hammocks as well. QTY 1 = ONE pole

We warrant the system for users up to 250lbs (110kg). Ground anchor strength, rather than pole strength is usually the relevant weight limiter. Hiking out of very loose or muddy soil to firmer ground is advisable. The Tensa Boomstake anchors can be pounded into extremely hard ground, which affords excellent stability. Bases of woody shrubs, chinks in rocks, additional or alternate anchors, and other opportune tie-down points can work where Boomstakes may not.

Choice of anchors (pair). Depth matters.
– Large Orange Screws (30cm) – 275gm with one insertion tube carried
– 40cm Boomstakes – 272gm
– 30cm Boomstakes – 228gm
– Large Peggy Pegs (31cm) – 130gm plus one 8gm 17mm driver wrench (sold separately)

    Tensa Outdoor’s products are crafted with great care AND Cheryl provides personalized customer service before and after the sale that you simply won’t get from a “big” company. At one point I was having an issue with one of the very early production parts seeming to fit right and she scheduled a video call with me to “show” me how to easily make the repair with tools I had in my own home, avoiding the need to ship anything back to her (although if I had wanted to do that, she’d have done the repair for me herself, I’m sure).

    I love my pole – it takes away my biggest anxiety about hammock camping – not having a place to hang!

    There was a minor issue with one of the sections not fitting smoothly but after emailing and following the advice, it’s working perfectly now. Top quality materials – strong and light weight. Works exactly as promised.

    This is an amazing idea and I’ve used them now a couple of times. The only thing I would say is, and this is the reason for the 3 stars, is that an alternative method to put the nuts in the poles for screwing the sections together needs to be found as one of mine has come off and trapped up inside the other section. Also the grip for the adjustable section is very flimsy and not upto what it’s intended for and one of mine is splitting and Will more than likely sperate from pole.

    For what I use them for I love these as I’ve wanted something that I can pack into my bag that doesn’t weigh to much and these do the job very well for when there are no trees.

    I would recommend something that maybe goes through both sections such a quick clip. I’ll find a picture and email to you.

      Hi Alan – We handled your product failure as a warranty rather than design issue, with apologies. We already went down the road of clips in a previous product iteration, and the present method is better in every way, occasional warranty issues aside. As for the grips wearing prematurely, this isn’t part of a pattern we’ve seen, but replacements are available. I have about 1400 miles on my grips, and they look like new. This is because I don’t grip the grips, but let the straps bear my weight. We recently standardized on a new strap design that encourages good form, and they’ll retrofit to older product if of interest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERKsm8-FIzA
