<< How do most hikers set up their packs to handle rather longish tent poles? 
Add a poly mesh side pocket, sewn on three sides with the top elasticized so 
the poles could be strapped to the side of the pack or slid under the side 
compression straps and held in place by the mesh pocket.  

Make one of your outside pockets of the open weave poly mesh so you could put 
wet things in to dry while you walk.

Quest Outfitters of Florida sells poly mesh fabric as well as tons of other 
sewing goodies. Their number is 800-359-6931.
