When you're in the resort, a broken pole is an inconvenience--in committing alpine terrain, not so much, which is why you see seasoned backcountry adventurers sporting poles like the light, adjustable, and bomber MSR Deploy TR-2. It's slightly heavier than its big brother the TR-3 and doesn't collapse quite as much, but it's still a high-end, heavy-duty backcountry stick. Unlike most adjustable poles, the TR-2 has a glove-friendly one-handed Trigger Release adjustment system, allowing you to easily and meaningfully adjust your poles to the terrain--anyone who's skinned up more than three switchbacks in their life knows that stopping on every one to adjust your poles just isn't worth it, but the TR-2 is so easy to use that you might start rethinking your system. It also has a freeze-resistant SureLock System that won't slip at the most critical time, or become impossible to adjust in icy conditions. Even the grip is thoughtful and well-designed, with a easy-adjust Breakaway Winter Strap that force-releases if the pole gets lodged, saving your shoulder and your gear from inopportune destruction. MSR also gave the grip a small hook, making it easy to adjust tech bindings and climbing bails, or to scrape heavy snow off your skis. Throw in a light and strong shaft made of aerospace-grade aluminum, and you've got a pole that's more useful than you are, and probably tougher too.
