rated 5 of 5 stars The Leki Quantum is a stable, dependable workhorse trekking pole. If you spend any time on trails... flats, declines or inclines... work smarter not harder with Leki poles. This unisex pole is worthy of the beginner or the pro. I am uncertain what kept me from getting a pair of trekking poles in the past, perhaps pride...thinking they were for the weak, possibly embarrassment...too concerned what others might think, possibly price...the good one's aren't cheap, probably a combination of all of those.

rated 4 of 5 stars A lightweight chair that is somewhere in between an all-purpose and a lightweight camp chair. Incredibly easy to set up and a durable base make it a good option for many functions. Conditions: I have been using the LEKI Sub1 for a wide range of purposes in a variety of conditions for nearly four months. The chair has been exposed to sun, snow, rain, and wind. The Sub1 has been used for car camping, hunting, tailgating, and hanging around the backyard fire pit. It has also been packed into an Osprey… Full review

Micro Vario Ti Cor-Tec

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Looking for a go-to trekking pole that does it all? This pole might just fit that bill.

I am a hard sell for hiking poles. As my knees got a little stiffer, I decided to start using poles. About 20 years ago I found a pair of Allsop ski poles that I cut down and fine-tuned to me. I adore the grips. (The poles… Full review

Instructor Lite SL2

rated 4 of 5 stars Leki Instructor Lite walking poles combine stability with a low swing weight. Unique removable grip straps. Length adjustment via cam locks. Nordic walking, as it is called in Europe, or hiking with poles, as we Americans know it, is an offshoot of dry land training for Nordic skiing. The Leki Instructor Lite walking pole has been designed specifically for walking or hiking.  Constructing the upper shaft of aluminum and the lower shaft of carbon fiber has allowed Leki to produce a strong pole with… Full review

Micro Vario Carbon DDS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Leki's Micro Vario Carbon are antishock poles that exceed anything else with which this user has ever hiked. While not ultra-light, the comfort, weight, and quality more than make up for the few extra ounces. A limited range of height stands out as the chief con to an otherwise excellent product. April 2017 Update: I have now used these poles for over 150 miles in the Shawnee Hills, Ozark Mountains, and Rocky Mountains, including a 5-day/58-mile trek on the Ozark Trail. I like these poles even more… Full review
