Peg fasteners:

The peg fasteners consist in a reinforcement and a strap loop. On this loop, several types of adjusters are available:

  • Normal : 2mm cord adjustable with Lineloc (+12g).


  • Ultra-light (UL)  fasteners: 3 loops of 1.5mm cord.


  • Ground fasteners by webbing + stainless rings : +65g

    This option changes the linelocs fasteners for adjustable loops of webbing. The adjustment is very easy, ultra-durable and gives large versatility on snow or other difficult terrains.



Stakes : 155g

A set of 13 stakes is available : we chose high quality aluminium pegs made in the Netherlands :
  • 7 Rockpin stakes to anchor your tipi on the hardest grounds
  • 6 UL duraluminium stakes for guylines when the weather turns bad.

Central pole : 150g

Pioulou has been designed to be used with a trekking pole of 130cm in order to minimize weight.

If you do not use trekking poles, a light and strong pole is available.


Seam sealing :
 You can do it yourself with a silicone sealant : it reduces our manufacturing time and therefore the price.
