When retailers saw MSR's new-for-spring-2012 SureLock UL two-section trekking poles, they immediately asked, "can't you do that in a three-section?"

MSR did. It's the SureLock UL-3 for fall 2012.

Both "light for aluminum" SureLock UL all-season poles are compact and made of 7000-series aerospace-grade aluminum.

They have non-circular pole bodies (to stay on track), extended, ultralight foam comfort grips, and MSR's SureLock push-button locking system.
