Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anne from AZ on Thursday, November 10, 2016Have used these for 4 hikes now. The 6 oz weight per pole is so much lighter than my former 11 oz poles. Please note that this has limited adjustability - fine for me as I use 105-110 for hiking and 110-115 cm for my tarp tent support. I have mixed feelings about the fold up vs. collapsible design but so far have no complaints.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Olderthandirt from Asheville NC on Friday, October 21, 2016Bought these and the Komperdell Pure Carbon poles that were much less expensive. Holding one of each in your hands the weight difference was quite noticeable. The Pure Carbons are only about 2" longer when broken down, and fit easily in my carry-on. And even though I'm one of those people who tends to think that more expensive means better, I sent back these Vario 4's and kept the Carbons.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Andy Nunyer from New Texas on Thursday, October 20, 2016This is the first and only time I have ever been disappointed in STP. Not a major issue, the poles will perform just fine.
The poles we received are not the color of the ones pictured. It was important, not critical.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by DCMLAW from Corte Madera CA on Wednesday, August 31, 2016These appear to be very well made light poles. Many trekking poles will not collapse to a length that you take on board a commercial flight. These unscrew and fold like tent poles to about 15". When the poles arrive, make sure to test whether you can unscrew the lowest section. I had to return twice until I got a pair that I could unscrew as there must have been a manufacturing error that over-tightened one pole each on each shipment.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Fathomthat from Central Illinois on Wednesday, May 18, 2016Purchased specifically for my wife and I chose Komperdell because the poles I've used for 100s of miles have not failed. These have a twist design that allow for compact breakdown and tilting baskets.

These should be compatible with the snow baskets. I can't guarantee this, as we don't currently have any snow baskets that I can check it against, but this looks to have a standard Komperdell basket type.
