Easton Offers Foldable Compact AL5 Poles
Easton Mountain Products, of tent pole fame, has introduced the Compact AL 5 trekking poles, which combine clasp lock and cord lock technology in one three-section aluminum pole. They also have a sliding length adjustment.
This crazy quilt of patented Rock-Lock locking and adjustment mechanisms produces poles that are not only solid, packable, foldable, and incredibly compact (down to 15 inches), but adjustable for a wide variety of heights.
