A tent without poles can be worse than no tent at all. A face full of wet nylon is no fun. Use the super light Gear Aid Tent Pole Splint to fix most standard poles. Repairs are fast, just slide the each broken end of the tent pole into opposite ends of the pole splint and wrap the whole section with duct tape (sold separately).

Great product to have while tent camping. I have been on many camping trips to have learned my lesson to always have a set of these Splints, small roll of duct tape, and extra shock cord in order to fix any tent pole problems.
Excellent item to have in your tent pole bag - it saved us last summer during a 3-day backpacking trip on the Lamar River in YNP. It is very easy to use, but you need to carry some duct tape with you as well in order for the tent pole sleeve to work.
