Swiss shelter half accessory set, new model, surplus
A "new" model tent accessory set of the Swiss army, updated from the old WW1 era set. Includes a pouch, a bunch of tent poles and three stakes.
Sometime in the 70's the Swiss army upgraded the shelter half accessories to full aluminium in a 34 cm long handy pouch with such magical inventions as The Belt Loop.
Contains five pole pieces, one of them shorter because overdesign. Together they form a 1,2 m tall pole (diameter about 1,4 cm on the top).The three stakes are aluminium and overall surprisingly nice, being 24 cm long and concave shape. These should work with anything smaller than a half-platoon tent.
Weight about 750 grams for the whole set.
If you need a cheap pole & peg set to go with your tarp, this might be the ticket. No cordage included, though!

Great for pitching a tent or a tarp.
Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
