Great poles but may need extra work for large hands
I was really really looking forward to these poles. I won't waste your time talking about how light, how short when folded (my 110cm folds down to ~14.75" and the included mesh stow bag is about 18" although the slack can be folded over) and how easy it is to fold (and unfold them) these poles. It's everything I was looking for on a ultralight backpacking trip. Well, too bad the wrist straps were way too small for my hands. I have large hands (I wear mostly XL gloves - Hestra size 10s I wear), and the straps attached to my 110cm poles were small/medium! I could not get the strap to fold over enough to velcro it down. I chatted with Backcountry's online help, and found out all pole sizes come with small/medium wrist straps. What sadness.... Update: He (from Backcountry's online chat) suggested I contact BD directly, and they sent me a medium/large strap for free, which arrived in just couple of days! Upon closer inspection, it was pretty easy to swap out the straps. What gladness....!
