Seth Lewiswrote a review of LEKI Khumbu Aergon Speed Lock Trekking Pole - 1-Pair on September 13, 2011
Just got back from my first trip with these poles and I am completely satisfied with them. The speed lock system worked great and locked down the poles very solidly even when putting a good deal of weight on them. I am 6'5" and 220 lbs, and these poles were more than enough for me to lean on when I needed the extra balance, also they worked great for my tarp support at night even when i cinched down the tarp tight. These aren't the lightest poles in the world, but I never questioned they're stability and robustness. All around great buy, and my only poles for years to come I'm sure.
