    Going the distance.

    As any seasoned pro knows, weight can make or break a distance hike, but equally necessary for efficiency with a large pack is a trekking pole or two. The Distance Carbon FLZ Trekking Poles are made from carbon fiber, which keeps the weight down but keeps strength and durability up. Twenty centimeters of adjustable length makes them versatile as well, so you can fine-tune their size to match the terrain.

    A lightweight EVA handle and foam extension doesn't add much in the way of ounces, but it does add all day comfort during 20 mile days, and the foam is moisture-wicking as well, so there'll be no case of clammy hands slipping on a steep slope. The Carbon FLZ comes complete with interchangeable carbide and rubber Tech Tips, too, so you can confidently cross from grassy valley to rocky scree slope without batting an eye.

    • Three-season trekking pole ideal for backpacking or timed treks
    • Lightweight shaft still offers durability for longer adventures
    • Three-section foldable shaft means easy storage when unneeded
    • Grip is breathable and moisture-wicking for all-day comfort
    • Interchangeable tips provide choices depending on the terrain
    • Adjustable length offers trail versatility depending on slope
    • Item #BLD00S4

    Light but disposable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After light use on a handful of occasions these started splitting by the buttons. Typically this was just outside the warranty period so you may be lucky and get a year out of 'em. Otherwise I'd have said they were good, however I'd recommend checking out other options.

    The Perfect Backpacking Pole

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I’ve liked these trekking poles a lot so far. They’re super light and easy to store in smaller packs, and I haven’t had any problems with them collapsing mid hike. They kept me upright on a pretty steep descent - saved my knees for sure. Looking forward to testing them out on some longer hikes. Overall, a great purchase!

    Super Light!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These poles are great. Light and really easy to collapse. They are a great choice for hikers looking for a pole to use on those technical hikes, and also runners looking for some support on longer or steeper runs.

    Lightweight and pack down small

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These poles are great, they are extremely lightweight and pack down to take up almost no space. So far they are holding up well and I think they'll last a long time.
