Recent Trekking Pole Reviews

Leki Instructor Lite SL2

rated 4 of 5 stars Leki Instructor Lite walking poles combine stability with a low swing weight. Unique removable grip straps. Length adjustment via cam locks. Nordic walking, as it is called in Europe, or hiking with poles, as we Americans know it, is an offshoot of dry land training for Nordic skiing. The Leki Instructor Lite walking pole has been designed specifically for walking or hiking.  Constructing the upper shaft of aluminum and the lower shaft of carbon fiber has allowed Leki to produce a strong pole with… Full review

Leki Men's Micro Vario Carbon DDS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Leki's Micro Vario Carbon are antishock poles that exceed anything else with which this user has ever hiked. While not ultra-light, the comfort, weight, and quality more than make up for the few extra ounces. A limited range of height stands out as the chief con to an otherwise excellent product. As a middle-aged man with osteoarthritis in both knees, trekking poles have become an essential for my continued enjoyment of the outdoors. The Leki Micro Vario Carbon are the fourth brand of trekking… Full review

Swiss Gear Hiking Pole

rated 4 of 5 stars They work well for their intended purpose! On a hiking trip to Switzerland, we were unable to bring our trekking poles because they wouldn't fit in our checked luggage. Once in the village we were staying in (Murren...GO, if you never have!), there was a shop selling many different souvenirs and some useful sporting goods items such as trekking poles. One of these was $20 so I bought it but then wondered how I'd get it back to the states. The shopkeeper cut off a length of cardboard tubing and… Full review

Leki Cristallo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great poles backed by awesome customer service. This is as much a review about the awesome customer service I received from Leki as it is the poles themselves. I picked up the telescoping version of the Cristallos (Ultralight SpeedLock) with a killer discount and they're the best sticks I've owned to date. They're aluminum, right around 18 oz. and have the most comfortable rubber grips I've used. When I first got them I was sort of surprised that the strap was almost like the kind of ribbon you'd… Full review

Pacerpole 3-Section Alloy

rated 5 of 5 stars I've always thought the handles on my trekking poles should be angled forward to better match the natural position of my hands and to better simulate a hand railing. The Pacerpoles people were reading my mind. For 15 years, I've backpacked with the same pair of Leki Super Makalu poles I bought at the NOC during my 2000 thru hike. Even though the Leki's handles are tilted forward just slightly, I've often thought that it would be better to tilt the handles of trekking poles farther forward to better… Full review

Komperdell Shockmaster

rated 5 of 5 stars Very nice poles for beginners...well within the price range for good equipment. Bought these as my first pair of poles and have found them to be quite good and a non-expensive way to break into the use of trekking poles. Full review

Black Diamond Trail Back

rated 3.5 of 5 stars These hiking poles are a great bargain for any hiker on a budget. I ended up getting these for $55 and I'm very happy with my purchase. These poles are perfect for the price that comes along. I like the grips even though they can slip a bit when they are wet or your hands are sweaty. They fold down to a very manageable size that fits in my day pack no problem. I would recommend these poles for any hiker that is on a budget. It's amazing how much poles help on both the ascent and descent. I loved… Full review

Leki Corklite

rated 5 of 5 stars Great handle design and straps — makes all the difference in how poles help hikers. Just add rubber tips and you are ready for any mountain and desert terrain. Summary The best handles I have used, great for uphill, downhill and ease of use on any other terrain. Adjustability for handle straps and pole length is easy and quick. No slippage on locking mechanism. I suggest getting the rubber tips to cover the carbide, makes for improved grip on rock. My Experience with Poles I have used a few… Full review

Mckinley Ascent

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight and strong. These poles were definitely not the most expensive but are plenty strong enough, very quickly adjusted, and one of the lightest sets of poles I could find at 230 grams. Grips are comfortable, straps are adjustable but do seem to slip a bit. This isn't a big deal. I may not have them locked in well enough. Would like more colour selection. Mine are a copper colour, which is very nice but there were no choices that I could find.   Full review
