    Do not buy these. So disappointed!

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I bought 2 pairs of these for a hiking trip in Utah. 3 out of the four poles had problems from the get go. I never checked them before the trip. They are supposed to be Kelty! On two of them the lower adjustments would not work. On another the upper adjustment would not work. I brought them to an expert and he told me they were defective. He said he had a set of these doing the same thing and had them exchanged. I did not have that luxury. I had to buy Gorilla tape and tape them to one length so we could use them. I weigh 185. One of them bent so badly in one descent I almost killed myself. Only good thing I can say about these poles is they paid for themselves because I could never have done my hikes that we did in the snow without them. That and the cork handles and straps are perfect. Comfortable and can take a beating. Too bad the poles are garbage. Oh. And three of the baskets got lost in the snow somewhere. Save your money and get a better pair that will last you! I thought about getting them warrantied but not worth the trouble. I would have had to pack them for my flight back.. I tossed them once we finished our hikes. I feel torpedoed by a brand I always trusted. I attached a pic of my son with tape on one of his poles.

    Decent poles

    No issues yet, they seem durable, time will tell but so far so good

    Don't cheap out on your trekking poles..

    I got these as a "spare pair" of trekking poles for my gear closet. You always have that one friend that forgets something! Well, first trip out with these things and they bent pretty severely. Thin walled aluminum is not a good material for something like this. I've had another pair of Leki poles for 5 years now, and as beat up and abused as they are they continue to perform. They've saved my butt on at least a dozen occasions where logic would say they should have snapped cleanly in half. BUT they saved me from tumbling down the hill in a blaze of glory every time. Not so with these things. My buddy stumbled and caught himself with the poles on snow (theoretically a low-shock impact) and one of the poles immediately buckled, bending about 90 degrees. I bent it back into shape for the rest of the homeward journey but they obviously wouldn't fully collapse to put them away afterward. In the trash they went. Moral of the story: Don't cheap out on trekking poles. One day you may need them to save your butt. I wouldn't count on these things to save ya on anything more than a flat straight trail!

    Hi Ben, My name is Adrian Person and I work with Kelty. Thank you very much for the honest review. I would love to get in touch with you directly so we can get these poles back from you. We have been producing this model for about 4 years now, and have not had durability called out as a specific weakness. Especially in terms of the strength of the poleset. I would love to get these back from you so we can review them with our design team, and I'll happily send out a new pair free of charge if you would like. Please shoot me an email when you have a moment. adrian.person@kelty.com. Cheers
