Trekking Poles for the win!

I just traveled with these poles in checked baggage and used them for lots of hiking - first on sand/rocks and then on snow hiking up Mt Rainier. The only tough thing was switching out the basket, but I guess that speaks to their durability. I love how lightweight and durable these poles are. I 10/10 recommend these poles!

Stop right here for light compact hiking poles

I feel so lucky to own a pair of these adjustable super light hiking poles. I can tuck them inside a daypack and don’t even notice them tagging along. They have an easy swing weight and, as a backpacker, being able to adjust the height up for stream crossings gives me the added balance assist with weight on my back.

Best of both worlds

It was tough to find a lightweight folding trekking pole that also offered adjustability in length but I am very pleased that I persisted. The Black Diamond Womens Distance carbon FLZ Trekking poles are everything I hoped for including ease of collapsability and comfort in the hand.

Da Bomb!

Just took my poles out for their first adventure, a 3-day backpack trip in Bears Ears National Monument. They performed awesome. So super helpful to have, especially during all the drop in/out of all the washes in Grand Gulch. Helped my balance on all the over/under various branches also. Being so lightweight, there was no arm fatigue or neck discomfort from using them. Super easy to 'deploy' also with the quick lock mechanism. The ability to change heights is super important to me as I usually have a pole-pitch tent for backpacking (though not this trip for desert camping). Very happy with my purchase.
