REI Peak UL
Price Paid: don't remember
Strong and light - had some trouble at first in adjusting height - poles would not "catch" and slipped, but we figured out how to make them secure.
The biggest disappointment: each handle grip contained a small compass at the top - about 1/2" diameter, and these failed in about a year. I have been unable to find any replacements. If anyone knows where to get these, please email me!

Here's what other sites are saying:
The REI Peak UL women's poles are some of the lightest, strongest trekking poles out there! They're made for minimalist backpackers and adventure racers. Upper and middle sections are small-diameter carbon fiber, creating ultralight poles that damp vibration and retain strength over a wide temperature range. Titanal aluminum lower section adds durability; Titanal aluminum is one of the strongest aluminum alloys around and offers mechanical properties comparable to steel. With the new Stop Lock system, poles won't come apart; system makes the pole sections into 1 unit for security and stability. DuoLock(TM) extra-strong internal locking mechanisms apply a wide area of pressure against pole walls to lock in length adjustment. Reliable DuoLocks enhance stability and make length adjustments easy. 3-section telescoping poles extend to a maximum length of 49 in. and compact to 23 in. for easy storage and transport. Ergonomic and contoured women's ultralight EVA foam grips have a smaller and shorter grip than the men's version; adjustable padded neoprene wrist straps provide comfort. Fitted with trekking discs and extra-durable tungsten carbide tips; included tip protectors are strictly for travel/packing protection, not intended for hiking.
