Recent Trekking Pole Reviews

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

Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Perfect for when the going gets tough. If my day might involve a steep stretch, I pack these poles, just in case. I carry these poles with "emergency gear." I use them when I'm descending a grassy, 30-degree avalanche chute (Mt. Truchas in summer). Using the poles, I can descend twice as fast and be much less likely to fall. I've had them 21 months, and I use them in the Rocky Mountains. They easily lock into stiff, rigid poles, and their height is easily adjusted. I broke one when the pole was… Full review

Foxelli Carbon Fiber Trekking Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, comfortable, durable, and inexpensive. (Revised-My original review was typed on my phone, and left much to be desired.) I've had these poles for a few months now (May '17) and have had the opportunity at this point to put in several hard and rocky miles (all over Maryland--Susquehanna State Park, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Patapsco Valley State Park, Bacon Ridge Trail, Billy Goat Trail, Appalachian Trail, etc.). The first thing I noticed was that, although I was able to get them very inexpensively,… Full review

Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy and fast to extend and collapse. Lightweight but sturdy. Comfortable wrist straps. The contoured cork grips are great and for those time when you need to adjust your grip for changes in terrain there's a foam grip below the cork. I just won't go hiking without trekking poles; especially in the winter! I kept finding myself ready for an ad hoc hike and not having poles, so I decided to pick up a spare pair to supplement my aluminum trekking poles. One thing to pay attention to when selecting… Full review

Swiss Gear Hiking Pole

rated 4.5 of 5 stars They are sturdy and dependable for the price. Work in woods, rock, and some inclines. The baskets kept coming off, so just kept them off. The grips are great but the straps are uncomfortable. Overall worked fine. Full review

Helinox Causeway Groove Lock

rated 5 of 5 stars These poles are a joy to use because they are so lightweight and the groove lock makes them fully adjustable while not giving way even when doing serious off-trail hiking. They are best for any type of hiking or moderate backpacking. I have been using these poles for the last two years on both trail hikes and off-trail hikes, as well as backpacks both on and off trail. What I like best about them is that they are incredibly lightweight, so I don't tire as easily on an all-day trek. The grip is so… Full review

Leki Quantum

rated 5 of 5 stars The Leki Quantum is a stable, dependable workhorse trekking pole. If you spend any time on trails... flats, declines or inclines... work smarter not harder with Leki poles. This unisex pole is worthy of the beginner or the pro. I am uncertain what kept me from getting a pair of trekking poles in the past, perhaps pride...thinking they were for the weak, possibly embarrassment...too concerned what others might think, possibly price...the good one's aren't cheap, probably a combination of all of those.
