Recent Trekking Pole Reviews

Fizan Compact Ultralite

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 them risk breaking 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

Trekking poles (generic)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Do you need trekking poles for hiking? Do you need trekking poles? Some people believe in them with almost religious fervour but after after considering the claimed advantages and disadvantages, I have come to the conclusion that they are more trouble than they are worth. Here is why: Claim: They increase efficiencyDespite manufacturers' claims, careful scientific studies have concluded that trekking poles do not increase your efficiency and in some situations may decrease it. I hear howls of objection… 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

Leki Thermolite Aergon XL Antishock

rated 5 of 5 stars Trekking poles are a great addition to your hiking gear. Leki Thermolite Aergon Antishock poles strike the balance between reasonable price and high quality. Until a few years ago, I thought trekking poles were a fad that would soon pass. That was before I bought a pair. Now, I would never backpack with them. One of my first tasks on a multiday hike used to be to find a nice walking stick among the branches that had fallen beside the trail. Sometimes I found a keeper, though not always. Even when… 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

Lee Valley Telescoping Hiking Stick

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My favourite walking stick on trails or on streets! It can be gripped on the foam grip like a nordic walking pole, or the wooden knob can be held in my palm. I like the anti-shock spring. The length can be adjusted quickly. It's also a camera monopod. This walking stick was bought by my spouse as a gift in 2007 and I've used it  for ten years. The adjustable length is the best feature! I keep changing it from "the middle" for walking on city streets, "longer" when on hiking trails, and "shorter"… Full review
