Day-in, day-out durability that takes what the backcountry dishes out.

These are great for touring, solid, and easy to use. I also happen to think they are a lovely shade of orange, easily sorted out in the back of the truck and fished out of the snow. These were purchased for my husband, and have seen a few years use, mine are a few years older and adjust like they are brand new. Wrist straps are easy to use, too.

Great Adjusting Trekking Poles

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These poles I got when I desperately needed new poles, we whet to REI to look for poles but they had no poles to choose from. So it was either a pair of $160 smith poles that didn't quite fit or $20 (with $20 off coupon) ugly orange flame poles that will probably grow with me until the day they break (they are really long.). I chose the orange flame poles . I have seen many people over the 4 years I've had these poles have the same poles except like really bent up and stuff, so I don't know how they got theirs that way, but mine minus a few scratches (I got this year from a big crash I had) have been perfect. I do think Black Diamond should change a few things though put out more girly designs so these poles would interest me more to pick them up in the first place and add holes at the top for knuckle guards because I really want to add them but there is no where to put them. Other than that these poles are pretty good. Nothing fancy just plain ski poles.
