Peak Hunter

rated 5 of 5 stars All the features and build of adult size. Bought these for my 7-year-old grandson to have gear just like Grandpa's.

Highlander Cork Anti-Shock

rated 5 of 5 stars For a first time buy of trekking poles I think I bought right. I've seen people of all ages using them and just wasn't moved to consider them for myself until now. Being a first time buyer of trekking poles I have nothing to compare them to, save for the copious reviews online, so I researched and chose these. The grip fits my hand comfortably and to test the locks and pole strength I extended them longer than what I'd be using and raised myself off the ground with all my weight on one. It didn't… Full review

Contour Titanal Power Lock

rated 3.5 of 5 stars These poles balance nicely between weight and strength, being sturdy without being too sturdy. Three-piece poles with flick locks lets them shrink for carry and make for fast adjustment on trail. Very functional in rugged terrain and as shelter support.

These poles didn't impress me when I first held them in my hands, but have survived for almost nine months of use. They are… Full review

Wild Rambler

rated 4 of 5 stars In a world where trekking poles are either crap and inexpensive or quality and ridiculously overpriced, Komperdell delivers a solid, reliable trekking pole that does the job well.

I purchased my Wild Rambler poles more than two years ago specifically for my climb of Mt. Rainier (September 2015). The Black Diamond set I was using at the time did not have an option for… Full review

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
