    The long haul might not feel so long.

    You might be wondering what you got yourself into when you wake up on the third morning of an eight-trek with legs that feel like they've been through a meat grinder and knees that creak like a teeter totter. You'll quickly remember that you had the foresight to bring your Black Diamond Alpine Ergo Trekking Poles along for the long haul, though, so you should be good once you pop a few vitamin I pills and settle into a good pace.

    The Alpine Ergo Trekking Poles are crafted from two lower carbon sections and an aluminum upper sections The combination keeps them stiff while in use but light enough that you'll hardly notice them when they're attached to your pack. Their three-section shaft breaks down fast for easy stowing, but also allows them to be adjusted to just the right height via bomber Dual FlickLock adjusters. Black Diamond also took care to give these poles a moisture-wicking cork grip with extended foam grip extension then put the handles on a 15-degree slant to give them an ergonomic feel that will be much appreciated on long, tough days.

    Boom! Nailed it.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought these as a gift and they're a huge hit! The cork handles absorb impact nicely. Sturdy, strong and light. The locking mechanisms are flawless; much easier than the twist design. Ordering my own pair right about now. . .

    the Rolls Royce of hiking poles

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I purchased these at the recommendation of Andrew Skurka, and am not disappointed. They're light, beautifully made, and thus far have been bullet proof. I've always been a big fan of BlackDiamond, and appreciate the availability of parts and service if I ever need it.

    Different color from what is pictured

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Beware if you are buying these poles based off the picture because what you will get are some white poles instead. Also ive since learned that the flicklocks pictured are the pros and what you will get with the white poles are not the pro version instead they are the plastic ones. I want to add that i have not contacted Backcountry about this because i ordered them just in time for my trip so i just dealt with it since i never had the time for an exchange /return. Aside from getting something different than i thought i was getting the poles did perform wonderfully on my 16 mile hike. Im giving three stars based solely on my bad experience alone.
