USMC Two Man Combat Tent Poles

USMC Two Man Combat Tent Poles Dac Pressfit Lock Tip

The Diamond Brand Gear USMC Two Man Combat Tent uses three DAC Pressfit Lock Tip poles. DAC's (Dongah Aluminum Corporation) first task when it entered the world of high quality backpacking and mountaineering tent poles, was to solve two problems that plagued its competitors: slipping connector tubes (because of glue failure) and the nasty habit of breaking without warning (sending sharp ends ripping through the tent's rainfly). DAC's elegant solution was to master a technically demanding interference fit between the connector tube and the main poles - requiring no glue - and to use a more ductile alloy (a Japanese variation on 7001). The resulting "Pressfit" poles are still the most rugged and reliable poles made in the world today.

DAC has developed "green anodizing" that eliminates nitric and phosphoric acid to minimize environmental damage and improve the working environment. DAC's GREEN™ anodization avoids the use of toxic heavy metals in the finishing process.

USMC Two Man Combat Tent DAC J-Stakes

Lightweight, strong and durable, the DAC J-stake is the ultimate choice for most one to two person tents. The DAC stakes that came with my USMC 2 Man Combat tent did not come with cord loops. This pleasantly proved difficult in removing the stakes from the ground. The solution? Added the loops myself.

When subjected to wind driven rain at a maximum of 20 mph and rain falling at the rate of 2 inches per hour. Comfort being degraded is defined as rain droplets hanging on the inside of the tent and dripping in to form puddles. The Combat Shelter provides protection from flying and crawling insects and provide sufficient head room for donning and doffing clothing.
