I bought the Trek'R 3s eight years ago for my first Grand Canyon hike. They were great then. Still are. Easy to use and adjust; the plastic film covering the pop-out adjuster buttons is really a nice touch. Keeps grit and grime from getting into the works. The pole sections slide smoothly and adjust quickly.When I'm not using the poles, I telescope them down; they store easily.
Am going to use them again in a couple of weeks for another Grand Canyon foray. Since the first time, I've learned how to use the poles more effectively. I didn't realize, for example, the benefit of cinching the wrist strap more closely. I was leaving the loops large and loose, forcing me to grip the poles instead of using the straps and making them do the work with my wrists. Hike and learn.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Lightweight three-section trekking poles with a compact storage length convenient for attaching to your pack. Length adjusts with a sure locking button so poles won't collapse unexpectedly. Adjustment holes are covered with transparent seal to keep out grit and snow. Other features include comfortable contoured grips, adjustable wrist straps, and molded flex tips with removable rubber feet and trekking baskets. Weight: 21oz/595g Adjustable Length: 44-56in/110-142cm Stored Length: 25in/64 cm
