Apart from ESVO's own aluminium telescopic tent poles there is also an alternative: the original Mostert telescopic tent poles made of thick-walled, seamless Dural precision tube with anodised aluminium. The reason why ESVO has included two ranges of Mostert poles (telescopic and bow poles) is: the Mostert tent pole is a well known name and literally and figuratively stands for something. For example, a 12 Beaufort storm was simulated during a tent pole test carried out by the A.N.W.B. The original Mostert tent poles were the only ones to survive this extreme test. Esvo's telescopic tent poles came in second with the qualification 'very functional'...
ESVO has both the aluminium bow poles (DIY) and Mostert's aluminium telescopic poles in its range. These latter tent poles are also available in larger lengths of 200 cm(Click here)
The technician Adriaan Mostert wanted to go camping just after the war, in 1947. The quality of the tent poles at the time was very disappointing: they could not withstand fierce gusts of wind, they were too heavy and they took up too much space. All this motivated Adriaan Mostert to invent his own tent pole, which did meet his requirements for being able to camp without the tent collapsing. He tested many materials and windy conditions. After all this thorough and lengthy research, he arrived at a special, yet lightweight aluminium, which achieved optimum strength. On top of this, Mr Mostert devised a clever so-called "nestable" stacking system for his tent poles: the aluminium poles could be inserted into each other very easily. In this way the volume could be reduced by 80%. Today the original Mostert pole is still a household name, because these poles stand for all-round quality and workmanship.
For 46 years ESVO has had its own, also highly proven telescopic tent poles; also ABSOLUTELY PROVEN to be wind-resistant. A functional comparison can be made word for word as the BMW 7 class versus the Mercedes S. However, due to the reputation of Mostert tent poles, we have included both the nestable telescopic tent poles and the aluminium bow poles in our range as a DIY kit.
