Great Poles!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These trekking poles are great for the price! $80 for a solid set of poles is hard to pass up. They are a bit on the heavier side, but not by much, and not by much that it really effects me. These survived a few days in PA on the Appalachian Trail. If you have ever hiked PA you know that it is straight everywhere.

Even after limited use I would still be fine suggesting these for an entry set of trekking poles!

2nd set of trekking poles

My wife and I love these. I bought a pair about 1 1/2 years ago and after my wife tried them we purchased another pair. Solid, reliable, easy to adjust and really takes the stress out of steep descents. We do a lot of hiking in the Rockies. Just love these poles. Sturdy.

How far do these extend to?

Sturdy, a little long

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My only complaint with these is they don't pack down to a small enough size to give me the option of storing them inside my pack. They could also be a little lighter, but durability is worth a little more weight.

They Don't Break

Simple, affordable, functional. What more could you ask of a trekking pole? There are plenty of more expensive ones, but these ones continue to do their job well enough for me.

First trekking poles - good choice

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first pair of trekking poles. I bought them in anticipation of some big hikes this summer and I'm glad I did. I hiked Half Dome twice in 3 days and these definitely helped take some of the load off my knees. I also took these up Mt. Whitney and I'm very glad I did. Aside from just taking some load, they are very helpful in keeping your balance as you cross streams or icy patches on the trail. The standard metal tip on these is almost magical in how well it grabs the terrain, even slick granite.

I've been pretty impressed with the flicklock mechanism so far. They are very easy to use and they told tight very well against anything but full body weight on the poles. I have noticed that the straps slip a little, but it really hasn't been a big deal for me, so still 5 stars!

Also, these poles are fantastic for mounting a GoPro and getting a wide angle selfie!

Great Poles at a great price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these for doing multi-day hikes in pacific northwest where the single track trails can get pretty nasty in the spring time thaw. They have performed very well. THe flicklock system stays in place with no slippage and the hand grips are very comfortable. The baskets are easily screwed into place for when i like that option. Overall, I'm very happy with these trekking poles, especially at the $80 price tag.
