Jennifer G.wrote a review of Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Z Trekking Pole on August 24, 2016
Took these poles on a 7 day backpacking trip in Brook Range, AK. They helped with river crossings, carrying a heavy load and up steep climbs. I've been using them for awhile on small hikes around Anchorage but realized their worth backpacking this summer. They were also stepped on accidentally and no harm was done.
