Chris Purkeywrote a review of Black Diamond Expedition 3 Ski Pole on January 30, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
While I bought these for touring, I've only used them so far for hiking/snowshoeing. That said, they are extremely comfortable to use given the adjustability. They feel are extremely light and pack up very nice and out of the way, but also feel durable and sturdy when in use. All in all they saved me on a long heavy hike into a Yurt the other weekend. As some of the reviews below mention, make sure you push the baskets up all the way. It took me a minute to realize mine were not on all the way and I could see loosing them a pretty easy thing. Highly recommended!
