Recent Rigid Trekking Pole Reviews

Leki 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. I've had these poles for quite some time. A lot of miles in sun and rain and snow. My Leki Makalu Ultralite… Full review

Black Diamond Distance

rated 4 of 5 stars Got these at last year's summer REI Garage sale and they were never used. They have changed my hikes completely! Love these poles. They have extended my downhills and are completely worth the negligible wieght! Full review

Black Diamond Syncline

rated 4 of 5 stars Surprisingly, these hold up well when used for climbing various routes up 14'ers. Mine have never failed and the quick flick-lock adjustment is fantastic when speed is of the essence on rough routes or bad weather..etc. I'll keep using them and buying new ones as long as they are available! The upper grips work well with and without gloves...the lower sponge grips could use more outward tapering at the bases to allow your hands to "set" in place for longer climbs. Over-all, they are worth the purchase… Full review

Black Diamond Women's Distance FL

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Your knees will thank you for this welcome addition to your hiking adventures! I had knee surgery almost two years ago, and since that time have been under strict instruction by my orthopedic surgeon to only return to hiking under one condition: always use trekking poles. Although I began the experience as a necessary concession, I have come to truly appreciate my poles. The Black Diamond Women's Distance FL poles have been wonderful hiking companions. The Z-Pole design allows them to fold up into… Full review

Gossamer Gear Lightrek 4

rated 2 of 5 stars Insanely light, exceptionally comfortable, crazy expensive trekking poles that needs lots of TLC, and that I found too fragile for klutzes in mountainous terrain. When I began looking at reducing the overall weight I’d be humping while hiking the Appalachian Trail, I started hearing about new, lighter hiking poles.  My old Black Diamond poles weighed 18 ozs, and they seemed a good candidate for lightening. Besides using them to help propel me up mountains, slow me down when going down them, and… Full review

Black Diamond Distance

rated 5 of 5 stars My age betrays me. Before buying these poles I thought of trek poles as an experiment for me. I assumed that I would end up giving them to someone else. Nope, that's not going to happen since I now love them. In fact, I've let four people try these, and exactly four of them have now bought a pair for themselves. Trekking poles and walking staffs are certainly nothing new. Historically I've regarded them as things that an athletic young fella wouldn't benefit from. Turns out, while I am still making… Full review

Komperdell Carbon Ascent Trekking Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars These are very light and a quality product! Great locking system, seems solid. I use ultra light gear and these are perfect! Full review

Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork

rated 5 of 5 stars The Alpine Carbon trekking poles are light, strong, versatile and have very comfortable cork handles. Backpackers, climbers and hikers alike will enjoy using these poles on the roughest approaches to simple day hikes. The carbon fiber shafts absorb a fair amount of vibration and the locking mechanism is secure. After two+ years of use on several backpacking treks, these poles have remained strong, reliable and I highly recommend them. Fit: The 360-degree, adjustable Nubuck leather hand straps are… Full review

Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best trekking poles I have had. I have had this set of trekking poles for four years now and have used them while hiking in all kinds of conditions and they have yet to fail me. They work great on downhill and uphill, in the mud, on rocks, and in the snow. Unlike a lot of poles the locking mechanisms do not slip and stay in place. Easy to adjust to the height you need. I would recommend these to anyone. Full review
