Tensa Trekking Treez hammock stand

(4 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” with 30cm anchors, lines, and a few extra parts adds 12.8 ounces (365g) to your pack, with 12 ounces (351g) 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.

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.

A ridgeline stabilizes the system when you aren’t in the hammock. Most camping hammocks have integrated ridgelines. If yours doesn’t, you will want to order or make one.

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 bundled 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.

    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).

    Great service!! They really care about making sure you have a good experience with the product!

    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.
