BD Traverse

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Full disclosure - I have the old version of these poles, without the secondary grip and releasable straps. Love them though, and the new updates look even better. A little long when collapsed on an alpine pack, but still prefer a two piece for weight savings and fewer moving parts. Easy, smooth adjustability and the fliplock is super solid. Dig them.
