You could whittle a cumbersome, non-collapsible walking stick from local hardwood, or you could just grab the Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Z Trekking Pole. Made from 100% carbon fiber, this collapsible trekking pole weighs in at a featherlight 17oz--that's per PAIR--and has a collapsible shaft for easy storage and travel. Interchangeable trekking and powder baskets make it easy to handle summertime hikes and winter trailbreaking, while the Flex Tech Tips let you use rubber for warm-weather missions and carbide for grip on snowy and icy surfaces. Somehow, Black Diamond also managed to work in a natural cork grip with an EVA foam extension and a breathable and moisture-wicking strap, all while making sure the Alpine Z weighed about as much as your beard.
Black Diamonda (TM)s durable, four-season, carbon trekking pole, the Alpine Carbon Z-Pole now has improved joint support and increased durability, making the it a strong yet ultralight pole for mountain missions. The natural cork grip with its duel-density top and breathable, moisture-wicking strap provide a secure grip, while the three-section, foldable shaft with speed-cone deployment is easily stored in your pack.
