Recent Trekking Pole Reviews

Pacerpole 3-Section Alloy

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent trekking poles that have helped reduce stress on knees and wrists, encouraged proper posture, better breathing and efficient movement. Pacerpoles have become a key component in my everyday hiking gear. I highly recommend these poles for hikers and backpackers. I have been using Pacerpoles almost daily since I purchased them 4 months ago, hiking with and without a backpack and on a variety of terrain. Most hikes are between 3-10 miles long over a combination of packed dirt, rocks and at… Full review

StickPic

rated 5 of 5 stars The StickPic turns your trekking pole into the original "selfie stick." It is a little doohickey that screws onto the bottom of your camera and then slides onto the tip of your trekking pole so that you can hold your camera out away from you to put yourself in the picture. Nobody needs the StickPic, but if you like to take photos when you hike with a "real" camera (not a smartphone), and you use trekking poles already, then you WANT the StickPic. This is a review of the StickPic camera accessory. Full review

Black Diamond Spire

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Literally saved my life, but that's not why they're getting 4.5 stars. *Not the lightest can actually be a "Pro" as well as a "Con," as those extra few ounces translate directly into lateral strength...read on. In my opinion, it's a shame that Black Diamond is no longer producing the Spire. If you're looking for a pole to have in your hand so you look like the rest of the "well dressed sheep" on the trails, this one might not be for you...you're looking for the thinnest, lightest pole you can find.

Leki Tour Stick Trigger S

rated 5 of 5 stars I must say, it would never occur to me to spend $200 for a pair of poles...but I will certainly accept them as a contest prize, and will put them to good use. These poles have been described as "the ultimate for 4-season use," but are also advertised as ski poles. I have used them for snowshoeing and micro-spike winter hiking, and they are certainly an upgrade over my basic snowshoe poles. These poles are way more pole than I would ever need, but I have come to really like them...and my husband… Full review

Grivel 3.16 Poles

rated 0.5 of 5 stars These poles are not reliable: the lower locking mechanism can fail under intensive use and can be dangerous. The lower baskets are easily lost, which is very problematic on snow trips. They look nice, have comfy grips, and the design is innovative, but reliability is key for such a product therefore I would not recommend these for anyone. I have been using these poles for a while in light use. I chose them because Grivel has a good reputation with reliable serious mountain products. I was shocked… Full review

Leki Micro Vario Titanium

rated 5 of 5 stars Strong and compact. SOBO on the AT right now, just waiting for a gear exchange to get going again. In the meantime, I'd like to share input with folks as to the gear and how it's holding up. I started in ME and am now in PA and I must say, these poles are great. I won't go into the benefits of hiking with poles, as you probably already know since you're reading this. I have hiked many miles alongside many other trekking poles and I must say, these poles are far superior, even to the other Lekis. Full review

Black Diamond Syncline

rated 4 of 5 stars Perfectly fine — cheap, light, strong, simple. I own / used both of Black Diamond's (orange) Syncline and (red) Trail Back for ultra-lightweight backpacking, with my son and I each carrying one pole and using both for shelter.   Actual weight w/o baskets of Syncline is 270 grams (9.5 oz) and Trail Back 290 grams (10.25 oz). Both handle miles and hands well, but both of ours are pretty soft (we're in Ohio after all).   Given the price is often almost the same on these few-years-old-model poles,… Full review

Black Diamond Syncline

rated 5 of 5 stars These are lightweight, strong trekking poles that won't collapse regardless of how much weight is put on them. The straps and handgrips are very comfortable for snowshoeing. I bought my Black Diamond Syncline trekking poles for snowshoeing, and they're excellent for that purpose. The straps are comfortable and don't chafe when I use them without gloves, and the grips have enough of a lip on them for pulling up my heel lifts. The included snow baskets keep the poles from sinking too far in snow,… Full review

Swiss Gear Hiking Pole

rated 5 of 5 stars Durability-to-price ratio is excellent. Comfortable grips with a nice overall feel. I picked up a pair of these @ Dicks about 6 years ago because at the price of $25 I felt they were at least worth a try. I've used them ever since and couldn't be happier. The locks continue to hold fine and the shock absorption qualities remain as good as when I purchased them. They have been used on extremely rocky terrain in the Adirondacks of NY, Vermont's Long Trail, NH'S White Mountains, and the Bigelow Range… Full review
