Micro Vario Titanium

rated 5 of 5 stars Strong and compact. SOBO on the AT right now, just waiting for a gear exchange to get going again. In the meantime, I'd like to share input with folks as to the gear and how it's holding up. I started in ME and am now in PA and I must say, these poles are great. I won't go into the benefits of hiking with poles, as you probably already know since you're reading this. I have hiked many miles alongside many other trekking poles and I must say, these poles are far superior, even to the other Lekis. Full review

Makalu Ultralite

rated 4 of 5 stars Superbly built poles allow confident use in a variety of conditions--creek crossings, uphills, downhills, as shelter supports, etc. Leki Speedlocks work great, allowing for swift adjustment with no worries about the locks giving way. There are lighter poles out there, but these are solid, reliable, and a pleasure to use. This may be an old school review. You see, years ago Leki made the Makalu.

Trail Antishock

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent product, light and strong. In my research I ran across the other review on this page. Read what he wrote and take it to heart. These are great poles at a great price.

While the grips are composite the feel very comfortable in my hands although I wish they had a touch more thickness. But I also have larger hands so this probably won't be an issue for most. The straps,… Full review

Traveller Carbon

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great poles! Very well made. Unlike many products, this CAN be easily adjusted for a small/ short woman. Usually I have to make do with many items, not these poles. Hand straps are comfortable. Leki is always top quality! Full review

Micro Vario Carbon

rated 5 of 5 stars The Leki Micro Vario Carbon trekking poles are compact when folded, lightweight and have excellent grips/straps. They are great for traveling when you need to pack them in luggage. I have owned a pair of Black Diamond Distance FL trekking poles for more than two years and also have a pair of Leki Carbonlite AS XL trekking poles. What I like about the Distance FL poles is their compact size when folded which makes them easy to pack and transport in luggage when flying.  What I like about the Carbonlite… Full review
