Here's what other sites are saying:
Go ahead, find the deep stuff. REI Snowshoe poles sync you up with winter's sparkling white landscape by enhancing balance and reducing fatigue on descents. Strong 2-section 7075 aluminum alloy telescoping shafts extend to 57 in. and collapse to 41in. to fit in your pack. Power Lock System adjusts length easily and reliably—even with gloves on! Simply open the lock, set the length and close the lock; there's no pole twisting involved. Ultralight foam grips with an ergonomic, contoured shape provide warmth and reduce glove slip. Tacky grip zone on upper section improves gripping ability when traversing a hillside or changing pole length. Extra-large snowflake baskets provide superior flotation and stability in deep snow; baskets twist on and off. Carbide tips provide reliable traction on a variety of surfaces; rubber protectors extend the life of the tips and protect your gear when stowed in a pack.
