This affordable trekking pole twists and contracts into three sections with a wide range of adjustable length. It has a comfortable cork grip and a durable tungsten carbide tip.

This is a very good value item. It is sturdy and light and has many of the features of poles that cost 5 times as much. The cork grips are a particularly good feature. They are grippy but never get sweaty and slippery. The small scree baskets can be replaced with standard snow baskets if necessary.

The only improvement I would look for would be forward angled cork handles (which are good for the wrists on long hauls), but the only ones I've seen that have that feature cost much more.

Logged many miles on foot and on snowshoes with these trusty poles. Anti-shock springs, carbide tip, basket, cork handles... much to like.



As with most poles, the twist lock system will collapse when weighted too much. It is difficult to get the section tight enough with gloved hands.



For the price, I have no complaints.
