A bag of tricks to go with your Eastern Bloc shelter quarter! With this tent accessory set and the shelter halves, you can turn your dirtiest tent fantasies into reality! Has enough contents to share with your comrade.

If you are reading this, you probably have or are planning to own a traditional shelter half ("Zeltbahn"), or a couple of them. This East German set comes with the necessary hardware to put up anything from two-men tents to larger contraptions. What's best, the parts are compatible with any Eastern Bloc shelter quarters. The solidarity of it all! They even fit some Western tarps, but don't let the Politruk know you even thought of this.

Contents and specifications

  • 10 pole pieces
  • 15 stakes
  • 5 ropes
  • 1 carrying bag

The pole pieces are 39 cm (15 3/8") long, slide about 5 cm (2") into each other and their smaller end has a diameter of about 1 cm (0.40"). The bayonet-type connection is reinforced with aluminum. Weight about 120 grams (4.23 oz) per pole piece.

The stakes are steel and very robust. These might come in a few different variations but all serve the same purpose. Length about 24 cm (9.5"), weight about 100 grams (3.52 oz) per stake.

The ropes are about 1 metre (50") long, sometimes made of traditional hemp but usually of utilitarian but a bit cheap plastic factory stuff, nothing really to write home about. They do their duty and that's it.

The bag is Strichtarn-camouflaged cotton and admittedly a bit cute.

DDR production!

Unissued, but stored for a long time in the Nationale Volks Armee stocks.

I would recommend treating the bare wood tent poles with some kind of water proofing product. The tent poles look like they were of recent manufacture, rather than having been in long term storage. One tent pole was missing the small metal stub, which helps lock to two sections in place. But one can work around that. I am very pleased with my purchase.

I have 3 sets of these I have purchased here in the USA. This set is worth it IMO. Each pole is the exact length of an original issued Polish lavvu aluminum pole. (I have purchased a complete original Polish lavvu kit on Etsy) If you have purchased the Polish rain capes here when they had them but no poles? These tent poles work with them to make a lavvu. I bought 4 Polish rain capes here and made paracord loops to put through the bottom grommet eyelets so the tent stakes can be used. Just in case if you don't know. You need 2 Polish rain capes buttoned together to make your lavvu setup. Ignore me if you already knew that :)

Just received these and everything is in good condition. The tent Stakes don't have a spot of rust. Oddly enough the tent poles have more rust on them then the stakes but only on the little knock. The wood is a little rough so I'll spend some time sanding it down. But overall I'm happy with this purchase.
