Glasses
Good ideas. I even carry an extra pair of glasses. I once had a lens pop out into a stream (of course!) while getting water. Luckily I was able to find it. I probably would have bailed if I hadn...

Pole length
I've never measured the height needed for the pole as I use a trekking pole and extender. I'll set it up at lunch and measures. Do you just want to know the range from fully pinned down to ...
