Recent Rigid Trekking Pole Reviews

Komperdell Wild Rambler

rated 4 of 5 stars In a world where trekking poles are either crap and inexpensive or quality and ridiculously overpriced, Komperdell delivers a solid, reliable trekking pole that does the job well. While the Wild Ramblers are not my favorite poles, there is a LOT to be said in favor of them, especially for a hiker on a budget. I purchased my Wild Rambler poles more than two years ago specifically for my climb of Mt. Rainier (September 2015). The Black Diamond set I was using at the time did not have an option for… Full review

Fizan Compact 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Fizan Compact 3 trekking poles are extremely light, comparable to and even lighter than many carbon fiber poles, but these poles are high-strength lightweight aluminum. So you don't risk breaking them like carbon can, and they are very affordable. They are very strong and sturdy. This is a review of the Fizan Compact 3 trekking poles. I am not connected to Fizan in any way. These are some of the lightest trekking poles on the market, tipping my scale at 6.0 oz per pole including wrist straps. Full review

Gossamer Gear Lightrek 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, strong, and useful. My first pair of trekking poles lost the ability to lock—they were twist locking poles from a major manufacturer. Calling or emailing the company for help went nowhere. I couldn't find a number or email address anywhere. My second pair were the Lightrek 4s, not a casual purchase. They are expensive and don't go on sale. But, I've had them for a long time, and I'm still using them. Why use trekking poles? For one, they take 6 lbs of weight off your joints per step when… Full review

Cascade Mountain Tech Quick Lock Carbon Fiber Cork Grip Trekking Poles

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent build quality and easily worth the price. I would probably say that if I had paid $75 instead of $45. They directly compare to $120+ carbon poles from Leki, Black Diamond, Komperdell, etc. If you are looking for sensibly lightweight carbon trekking poles with good cork handles that adjust easily and don't slip the CMT Quick Lock Carbon Cork poles are hard to beat. After reading many reviews all over the interwebs raving about the quality for the price of these poles I followed their lead… Full review

Helinox Passport

rated 5 of 5 stars Very light, pack very small, reliable, and easy to use. We own two pairs of these poles and I have just ordered another pair of the Passport TLs as I initially purchased the shorter 115cm poles and have since realized I prefer longer 125 cm poles. These poles are fixed in length so make your purchase carefully. They come in three sections connected by elastic shockcord and take seconds to extend and connect up. When folded and packed away they are smaller than a rolled newspaper. Once extended and… Full review

Komperdell Carbon Ultralite Compact

rated 2 of 5 stars Poor design work. Unsafe. When I spend almost $200 on a trekking pole, I would expect design flaws to be insignificant and non-existent. However, these poles provided me with nothing but aggravation. Every 10-15 minutes, I would have to stop and re-thread them together. While trekking over the course of three days, this became a massive hassle and inconvenience. The physical motion of planting the pole on rocks over the course of time, allowed them to unscrew, and become loose, and if not attended… Full review

REI Flash Carbon Trekking Poles

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Poles absolutely make hiking easier. These are my first poles and I really find them useful on the trail. They adjust easily to your height needs by telescoping in and out, which can be important going up and down steep slopes as you might want to change the length. The poles take a lot of pressure as I not only use them to help propel myself forward, but on more than one occasion they prevented a fall on slippery rocks. On one particularly rocky downhill climb one of the baskets came off in the… Full review

Foxelli Carbon Fiber Trekking Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, comfortable, durable, and inexpensive. (Revised-My original review was typed on my phone, and left much to be desired.) I've had these poles for a few months now (May '17) and have had the opportunity at this point to put in several hard and rocky miles (all over Maryland--Susquehanna State Park, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Patapsco Valley State Park, Bacon Ridge Trail, Billy Goat Trail, Appalachian Trail, etc.). The first thing I noticed was that, although I was able to get them very inexpensively,… Full review

Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy and fast to extend and collapse. Lightweight but sturdy. Comfortable wrist straps. The contoured cork grips are great and for those time when you need to adjust your grip for changes in terrain there's a foam grip below the cork. I just won't go hiking without trekking poles; especially in the winter! I kept finding myself ready for an ad hoc hike and not having poles, so I decided to pick up a spare pair to supplement my aluminum trekking poles. One thing to pay attention to when selecting… Full review
