Good trekking pole

This is a light weight pole with great Flick Lock action. This pole is adjustable on the walk and is collapsible enough to disappear into a side pocket when not in use. Despite the light weight, it felt solid enough to bare my weight when leaning up against.

My problem with this pole was the size of the basket. The basket is permanently attached and is pretty small. There were multiple times when the basket slipped between two rocks and was lodged in there as I walked past. I would also have liked to have the ability to put a bigger basket on for travel over snow. This is a minor complaint, but something to think about. If you know you are going to be traveling primarily on snow then I would find a pole with bigger baskets.

Overall though, I loved traveling with this pole.(Note: I hike with only one pole to cut weight even further)
