Recent Rigid Trekking Pole Reviews

Gossamer Gear LT5 Three Piece Carbon Trekking Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars Light and comfortable! This is an initial review with only one day, so if durability becomes problematic, I will update the review. I typically hate poles.  They have been an annoyance more than a help. Unfortunately, my knees disagree with that statement. I tried BD's Distance Carbon FLZ and disliked the grip, the fixed basket, and the tent pole folding mechanism. The BD Alpine Carbon Cork felt nice, but goes against my fear of heavy poles getting in the way of a nice hike.   The Gossamer LT5's… Full review

Montem Ultra Strong Trekking Poles

rated 3.5 of 5 stars These Montem poles have shown that they may function well as a good, dependable choice of trekking poles for the economy-minded adventurer. The features on the poles make them easy to use in a variety of conditions. They may not be the lightest poles available, but their affordable price and durability make them suitable for most recreational hikers and walkers. When I was offered the chance to review these trekking poles, I readily agreed, looking forward to giving a good tough test to these economy… Full review

Gossamer Gear Lightrek 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Feather light adjustable trekking poles with a comfortable cork-like grip. I never knew I needed ultralight trekking poles until I had the Gossamer Gear LT4S trekking poles. Not only are they feather light, but they have a substantial cork-like grip that is exceedingly comfortable.   Once you start weighing gear, it’s hard to go back. I’ve been trying to lighten my load, but I’m mostly focused on what goes on my back. I never really thought about my trekking poles. Once I got the Gossamer… Full review

Komperdell Contour Titanal Power Lock

rated 3.5 of 5 stars These poles balance nicely between weight and strength, being sturdy without being too sturdy. Three-piece poles with flick locks lets them shrink for carry and make for fast adjustment on trail. Very functional in rugged terrain and as shelter support. Komperdell has been making a product with this name for quite a few years and made changes and improvements along the way. These poles didn't impress me when I first held them in my hands, but have survived for almost nine months of use. They are… Full review

Black Diamond Distance Z

rated 4 of 5 stars Collapsible, sturdy trekking poles. Have owned for about four years. Have always opted to backpack with poles, mainly because I like the support.  Also double as setup for my tent if I don't have the option to sink pins. I like the way they fold up for pack-ability. Seem fairly lightweight, though I haven't used any others for comparison. Hand grips are comfortable, no issues after a long day. The length is slightly adjustable depending on your height. The locking features are also strong, yet… Full review

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
