Recent Rigid Trekking Pole Reviews

Tubbs 2-Part Adjustable Snowshoe Poles

rated 4 of 5 stars The Tubbs 2-Part Adjustable Snowshoe Poles are lightweight, sturdy accessories for snowshoeing, helping with balance and increasing the aerobic workout. They're valuable for probing uncertain terrain as well. I received the Tubbs 2-Part Adjustable Snowshoe Poles as a free gift with my purchase of Louis Garneau Blizzard II snowshoes from Campsaver. I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much after a few experiences with poles from other snowshoe manufacturers, but I was pleasantly surprised by these. … Full review

Leki Corklite

rated 4 of 5 stars The Leki Corklite trekking poles are light, strong, and especially well suited for wet weather trekking as the grips don't absorb water and the wrist straps dry quickly. The cork grips are actually a composite (80% ground cork) so don't expect a traditional cork feel. I have medium sized hands and thought these grips were a bit on the small side so be sure to put your hands on these before you buy them.

Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Really, really like 'em! Never used trekking poles before I planned my first backpacking trip with some friends. These guys are "pros" and my go-to resource for questions and learning about backpacking/outdoors, etc. Been on countless camping trips with my sons through Cub and Boy Scouts, but hadn't ventured into the backpacking realm until recently.   Did a training run with full pack, gear, etc.  but with no trekking poles. One of my buddies lent me his trekking poles and immediately I was hooked. Full review

Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork

rated 5 of 5 stars Saved my knees... saved my life. Won't leave home without them. I have been a fan of hiking poles for a long time. Because I have horrible arch support, my sense of balance is pretty poor, and having those extra supports make a real difference. A few years ago, as I got ready for my thru-hike of the High Sierra Trail, I decided to upgrade from my old banged up Leki poles, and sprung for these. I chose the cork grips just for personal preference. I find them more comfortable on a long day than rubber. Full review

Leki Micro Tour Stick Vario

rated 4 of 5 stars The Leki Micro Tour Stick is a very light and durable collapsible trekking pole, equipped with well padded wrist straps, simple extension, and very secure lever-lock adjustment. These trekking poles are ideal for hikers and backpackers who value a small packed size and low weight in a convenient and reliable product. While lighter poles are available, they lack many of the comfort, strength, and convenience features of the Leki Micro Tour Stick Vario. Included items: poles, pole baskets, pamphlet,… Full review

Black Diamond Distance Z

rated 4 of 5 stars A simple, lightweight set of folding aluminum trekking poles great for dayhiking, backpacking, and trail running. Highly recommended! I've been a fan of trekking poles since I started backpacking solo as a teenager. The stability and joint protection they offer are always worth the weight. After years with the same pair of LEKI's, I decided to give Black Diamond a try in preparation for a trip to Mount Whitney. Their 2015 Distance Z's seemed to offer everything I wanted: Lightweight Simple design… Full review

Black Diamond Alpine FLZ

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent poles. I use them for day hikes and they work very well. They are fairly light, built well, and fold down much smaller than telescoping poles. And they have adjustability in their length. For beginning and intermediate hikers they are great. I cannot speak for advanced hikers, because I am not one. I like these poles a lot. I'm an intermediate day hiker, going about 8 miles a hike. These poles have made the uphills much easier, and give me more stability on the downhills. They are light… Full review

Pacerpole 3-Section Alloy

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a strong, light, invaluable walking aid. It takes the weight off your knees, supports you uphill and downhill, and the contoured forward sloping grips make using them perfectly natural. Brilliant for trekkers of all ages and after sales service second to none. I walk the Camino trails in Spain and will not leave home without them! I have used this product for a number of years on the Camino Frances (800kms), the Portoguese route from Porto to Santiago, and from Malaga to Merida. This September… Full review

Komperdell Carbon Ascent Trekking Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars I've been really impressed with my new trekking poles. They fold down to fit into my rucksac out flight bag and are so light I barely notice I'm carrying them. The  locking mechanism is very quick and easy and would be manageable with gloves on, a bonus in cold weather. The straps and grips are comfortable to use and the tip gross well, leaving me feeling secure on rough ground. My only regret is the fact that, although I'm not a particularly short female at around 5' 4", the minimum length is… Full review
