Good light poles. Problems i beleive are from poor instructions. They use a rubber bushing that is squeezed to lock them. If they are loosened too much they will not relock. If this happens simply extend them all the way tighten the lock enough that some resistance is felt, shorten them to the d... Read More

    These were a huge help on my first long hike into and through the Grand Canyon. Comfortable and strong.

    These will strap to a daypack or go in checked luggage, so be more likely actually to get taken on our trips. Handles comfortable to hold while walking, stepping up and down. With the fatter, grippier extra rubber tips I bought, they should be good also on uneven, polished stone (e.g., archaeological sites in Italy).

    The most unfortunate part of this product was that both pole straps were left-handed persons. I had to take one pole apart and re-wrap the strap for a right-handed person so that it wasn't twisted
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Joybird from Afton, VA on Sunday, December 16, 2012
    I use trekking poles when I am hiking and find that using them helps on 1) powering up steep slopes, 2) easing the strain on my knees when going down steep or rocky trails, 3) giving me a sense of security when I start getting vertigo in places with lots of exposure, and 4) keeping my fingers from swelling up on long hikes. Over the course of hundreds of trail-miles, I had literally worn my previous pair of Komperdells (a more basic model, not the C3s) down to nubs. Though I bought some replacement ends for them and that gave the old poles new life, I recently decided it was time to upgrade so I could get a pair that would be lighter and would collapse to a shorter length to make them easier to pack in my luggage -- or to stow in my backpack without them sticking up too far over my head and getting caught on things. That's why I bought the C3s.

    I've only had the poles for a couple of months, so can't vouch for whether they'll hold up as well or as long as my heavier poles have, but so far they're doing fine. And I LOVE how lightweight the C3s are! And how comfy the straps are. I'm not giving them 5 stars because are a bit hard to adjust -- they have too much friction and you really have to pull on them to change their length. (I'd hoped that would improve with time, but it isn't and now I'm thinking I may have to try to wax them or something? )

    The first pair of C3s I ordered was defective and the twist-lock mechanism twisted, but didn't lock. On this second pair I've found that although occasionally the locking mechanism doesn't want to engage, you can work around that by sliding the poles back to their shortest position and the trying again. This pair has always engaged after I do that. A bit of a pain, and another reason for not giving them 5-stars, but as long as the work-around continues to work, I'm OK with it . It is worth it for how lightweight and comfortable these poles are otherwise.

    These weight in at under one pound for both. The locking system is a little challenging but they work fine if you extend the poles all the way, tighten them slightly and then close to to desired length. One thing Sierra doesn't tell you is they are designed for small hands. They fit my wife perfectly but the grips were too small for me. I will be adding some grip tape to mine. We used two pair on a five day backpacking adventure in Yosemite and they worked great.
