The picture-perfect trekking pole.
Mountainsmith knows that you’re passionate about hiking and taking photos, and its Trekker FX 7075 Monopod Trekking Pole perfectly combines the two. As you trek along while holding the comfortable foam grip and molded EVA handle, slip out of the adjustable wrist webbing and remove the handle cap to place your DSLR camera on top of the 1/4-20 SAE bolt. Once you capture that epic photo, simply replace the cap and move on.
At only 10.5 ounces, the Trekker FX is made of lightweight and strong aluminum, and the double cam twist lock lets you adjust it up to 54 inches down to 26 when it’s compressed. This adjustability is not only helpful for the extra tall or short hiker, but it’s perfect for those shots that require a specific pose for the camera. As added comfort, this pole has a spring loaded anti-shock system to save your joints and a carbide tip for needed traction on rocky terrain. The included basket is made for hiking, but it’s removable so you can easily swap it out for a snow basket in winter. And when you walk inside and spot another picture-perfect moment, simply cover the tip with a rubber boot and snap away.

Photographer's Trekking Pole
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used these on many peaks over the past few months, and they've been great. I adapted one to take a compass knob on top and one to take a GoPro mount. They're not the lightest in the world, but for the money and functionality, they're great.
I adjust them to one height for uphill and another for downhill, and they work perfectly. They have to be locked pretty tight not to slip, and the rubber stoppers wore through pretty quickly, but other than that, they've been great.
Trekker FX 7075 Monopod Trekking Pole
Our Trekker FX adjustable hiking pole does double duty as a lightweight trekking staff and camera mono-pod for perfect set-ups in the backcountry... or the backyard. The EVA top handle unscrews, revealing a universal ¼"-20 SAE male bolt for fitment with most Point & Shoot, Hi-Zoom, and lightweight DSLR cameras. Due to the sensitive nature of camera equipment, we recommend our mono-pod function at a max carrying capacity of 3lbs. Please use discretion when in the field. This rugged single hiking staff comes equipped with comfortable EVA handle, anti-shock absorption system, removable hiking basket, wrist strap, replaceable rubber boot tip, and carbide tip for exceptional traction on rock, trail and scree.
