Recent Alpine Touring/Telemark Pole Reviews

Black Diamond Compactor Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome product fo sho! When your trail is slippery, rocky, unstable or challenging in any way, bust out these poles for sure footing. Also, if you have pain in knees/ankles from impact on the trail, these will offer much needed relief to keep you going. Full review

MSR Deploy TR-3

rated 4 of 5 stars MSR has consistently made rock solid products, and this is no exception. The overall design may become the industry standard. The pole never slipped in height adjustment. The aircraft grade aluminum offered consistent stability. The pole offers a simple way to adjust height without fussing with clips, locks, and twists. The no catch triangular basket, solid construction, and ease of use will make these my go-to poles for my winter hiking and snowshoeing. The TR-3 at first blush to me while attractive,… Full review

Black Diamond Compactor Poles

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love these poles. I use these poles for everything, skinning with my splitboard, snowshoeing, and backpacking. They are awesome. Lightweight and they collapse down really small.   The only downside I can think of is that the powder baskets need to be on in order to keep them from flopping around. The baskets have two notches in each one that snaps onto the pole shafts to hold them together into a compact package.   Without the baskets (used as a trekking pole) they will flop around on your pack… Full review

Black Diamond Traverse Pole

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I didn't use poles for years. I actually use one of the BD's and it alows me to speed through terrain that would normaly slow me down or tear my ankles up. I didn't use poles for years. I actually use one of the BD's and it alows me to speed through terrain that would normaly slow me down or tear my ankles up. Locks each segment solid. Keeps you confident. Full review

Black Diamond Whippet

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Whippet will give you added security in places where falling will have dire consequences. You have to know how to self-arrest for it to be useful. I recommend it for anyone that has ever wished they had, or actually had, an ice axe in their hand while skiing. I started skiing with a Whippet two seasons ago and I really like it. I don't have crampons for my skis so this gives me a nice sense of security when skiing on hard snow. I've had a few unexpected falls/slides where I couldn't stop if… Full review

Line Skis Pin Ski Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars Great poles!!! I love the grips, can't get use to any other kind now that I have used them. They haven't bent at all since I have had them. Full review

Black Diamond Expedition

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light, tough, and cheap. I find it a bit amusing that after many years, the traditional leaders in hiking poles, Leki and Komperdell, are finally coming out with locking systems for their poles based on the Black Diamond Flicklock system. We've all heard stories about the old twist-lock poles collapsing at the wrong moment, dumping someone in a puddle or causing a fall, and it's good to see other companies following BD's lead. I've had my latest pair of Black Diamond Expedition poles for about three… Full review

Black Diamond Expedition

rated 5 of 5 stars Received these as a Father's Day gift in 2008 and they have not disappointed hiking or snowshoeing. You can remove the snow baskets in the summer which is nice. They fit in the ice axe straps on all my packs when I don't need them. Full review

Black Diamond Expedition

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love my three piece BD Expedition ski poles with two flick locks. They are super strong and easy to adjust while wearing thick gloves. The flick lock can be adjusted while hiking or skiing and it holds tight. The biggest problem I had with twist locking poles before I discovered BD flicklock was making an adjustment when it was cold or wet outside. You fight to loosen the pole from the first length.  Then you can't get it to stay at the new length. The twist lock style is very hard to hold… Full review
