Recent Trekking Pole Reviews

Black Diamond Distance Plus FLZ

rated 3 of 5 stars Great design; lousy black greasy powder. I bought these poles for a long walk across Spain where I needed to break down the poles every night when coming into the hostel. I have since used them on a second such trek, for a total of around 700 miles. I agree with everything about great design (fits easily in carry-on luggage), etc. The problem is that when you break them down, inevitably you pull just a little too hard, and the plastic plug pulls out of the tube. No problem, you just push it back… Full review

Black Diamond Distance Plus FLZ

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Black Diamond Distance Plus FLZ Trekking Poles are a well thought out design that is very easy to assemble and adjust, but it also is just as easy to break back down into a very compact package to stow away. As purchased, the Black Diamond Distance Plus FLZ Trekking Poles come with all the accessories needed for the poles to be used all four seasons and in environments that call for an aggressive carbide tip or protective rubber tip. The Black Diamond Distance Plus FLZ Trekking Poles are a good… Full review

Komperdell Kids' 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. Features: XS Compact grip System strap Aluminum 7075-T6, 2-sections, Ø 16/14 mm Powerlock 2.0 mechanism Vario Trekking basket Steel tip Weight: 214 grams Extended usable length 120cm/ 76cm collapsed Replaceable steel tips and removable baskets I torture tested them the same way I did with my Komperdell Highlander Cork trekking poles. I locked them out at full length (120cm) and… Full review

Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork

rated 4 of 5 stars There are many brands and styles of trekking poles available out there, and picking out the best ones can be confusing, but my choice was an easy one, as I received these Black Diamond Ergo Cork Trail hiking poles as a gift. I am more than pleased with their performance and would recommend them. The cork handles are easy to grip, comfortable, to hold and the cork helps wick away moisture. One of the best features are the 'click-lock' levers that securely lock the poles in place at the desired length,… Full review

Komperdell 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

KÖPPEN Haltbar

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Same problem as mentioned by previous writer; poles would not tighten...just kept turning by hand with no result. Dick's, where I bough them, couldn't help. Referred me to Koppen but no response from them. I give up, will buy another brand. Dennis Zink Webster, NY  (585) 746-9465 Full review

Tracks Sherlock Staff

rated 5 of 5 stars Strong, lightweight, reliable, and with a killer warranty Honestly, I cannot even remember when I first bought this stick. I am guessing it might have been back in about 1991 or so. I used to carry wooden sticks, but they were so heavy and (frankly) bulky to move in a car and (let alone) an airplane. I was skeptical at first that something so lightweight and "extendible" could possibly be durable... But durable it was! I have lived in Boulder, Colorado, for all the time I have had this stick, so… Full review

Black Diamond Distance Z

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight, foldable trekking poles great for casual hikes, but can go the distance. Highly recommended. I purchased these Black Diamond Distance Z trekking poles for a specific purpose. I often travel to backpack and I wanted some poles that were compact enough to fit inside my backpack or bag. That meant that they had to fold to less than 20 inches. These poles fit the bill. The fit of these poles is determined when you buy them. The poles are non-adjustable so you should buy poles that will… Full review

Leki Cristallo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid adjustable trekking poles with excellent hand grips for challenging day hikes or demanding thru-hikes. Highly recommended. I highly recommend Leki trekking poles and the Cristallo model. The hand grip is super comfortable and tactile. I seldom grip the handle straight on. Rather I move my hands on top, under, and sometimes just use my index finger on the nose. The poles have clip adjustments, which are easy to use. The poles have the ability to tighten the clips with a screwdriver or coin,… Full review
